Frogs and Food

I made a new friend in my garden. He comes out when I water the tomatoes. 

Broiled brussel sprouts, pasta, parmesan cheese and a few drops of lemon juice. Yum.

Went berry pickin' with my best friend. We've got a date scheduled next week to whip up some jam, pies, cobblers and can some other fruits and veggies. I can hardly wait!

Me time!

I was up till 3:30 last night. I swear I had just started to cut out fabric for some pillowcases and then all of a sudden, Boom! It was 3:15. Crazy how that happens.
I only have one week of chemistry left and I am rewarding myself for hanging in till the end. I took sime time to myself and sewed up two sets of pillowcases and a cute little wallet to post on Etsy. My poor little store was looking kind of neglected. My sewing machine was recently serviced and it ran beautifully, I love it! Anyway, I have the day off of both work and school today and I am throughly enjoying it. I slept in, I ran a few errands, and as soon as I'm done with this post I'm gonna go soak up some sun, and then I'm hanging out with my best friend tonight. We're goin to see Harry Potter! Woo! 

 I used vintage fabric for the little trip strip on these pillowcases. It's the funniest "Don't Forget!" fabric that has little hands with strings tied to their fingers. It just makes me smile every time I use it. What a silly thing to print on fabric.

 Ok, So I kinda love pom-pom trim. It's ridiculously cute and I couldn't help myself.

Another "Perfectly Practical Wallet" made with an adorable Alexander Henry mushroom print fabric. 

Thanks for reading!

Blog Giveaway

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful 3-day weekend. It was sooo nice to have Monday off. Although, I did spend most of it studying, it was still nice to be at home instead of school. Any who, these coasters may look familiar to some of you. 

I made them a while ago and they've been in my Etsy shop for a long time....too long in my opinion. So, I'm giving them away! This is my first ever blog giveaway, and I have to admit I'm really excited. These cute little coasters need a new home and I can hardly wait to send them off to one of you!

Here's what I want you to do. Leave me a comment on this post telling me about your favorite summer memory. You can leave comments until a week from now. I'll put everyone's name in a bowl and draw one. Check back on July 13th, I'll announce the winner and if it's you you'll need to contact me with your mailing address. Then I'll ship your lovely and summer-y coasters to you! Simple as that. 

Ready, set, comment! Good luck!
