Rewind it.

Happy Monday!
How was your weekend? Mine was pretty relaxing and productive which is always good.
I've been crafting and sewing a lot these days. It seems like I have a new idea pop into my head daily.
Sometimes it is a little exhausting though because I don't know what to start on first....that's always the first question I have. I made the Aladdin painting below for Pia's room. Have a couple of other ones in the works for her as well. 
I took Saturday off of work and had a garage sale at Bob's house and boy was it worth it. I made more than I would have at work for sure and got rid of a ton of stuff.
The kids had so many toys that they have wayyyy outgrown and it was time.

Willow is such a diva and I swear almost every time I try to take a good picture she does that. I didn't even have the flash on! She's also always laying on whatever it is i'm sewing at the moment... Oh kitties.
We also treated ourselves to a date at a super yummy restaurant 45 minutes away. They have the most delicious artichoke/spinach dip EVER. It is to die for.
That was pretty much my weekend summed up for you, except for all the Breaking Bad we've been watching. There's only a couple more episodes left to watch until we're all caught up for the new episodes this week! Can't wait!

With All My Love,



  1. i'm finding bb a little dull latelty... i hope it picks up pace again soon!

  2. Ahh so awesome you had a successful garage sale, that's so great that you made more money than you would have at work, go you! Sounds like you a had a pretty nice weekend, I'd love to see some more of your sewing projects- and thanks so much for your comment on the dress I'm working on :) I will be sure to wear it on the blog when I am finished- I'm really excited about it, haha. I am so slow going with it because I want to make sure I sew every little seam correctly and I've been getting together with Daniel's grandmother every step of the way. Hope your week is going well, Pati :)

    1. I'm the exact same way.. that's why I haven't really posted anything on the blog yet. Such a perfectionist. I mean they're not going to be amazing looking to begin with, I just have to learn that. Can't wait to see your dress!

  3. I need to have a garage sale SO BAD. Sounds like you had a busy weekend!
    P.S. Breaking Bad! <3

    1. Breaking BADDD! Almost caught up. Woohooo. We're having another on Sunday. I just want all the stuff OUT already.

  4. That's awesome that you made some mad cash from your sale! I definitely need to join up with someone and have one of those. We need to de-clutter like none other.

  5. Yay for sewing! I'm about to jump back in with full force. My good friend is going to teach me all about patterns and we're gonna make a dress. :) I love the Aladdin painting. So sweet of you. :)
