My mother is really the master mind genius behind all sewing creations that come out of my house. Every year she makes the kids their Halloween costumes. They go to the fabric store with her and pick out what they want to be. In a matter of weeks, a packages arrives on our doorstep with her amazing creations.
Katelyn was a sweet bumble bee.

I am a gift giver. And if I can make it for you and you love it all the better. I'm always on the lookout for things on clearance that I can turn into a work of art. Found this black canvas bag at my favorite craft store, Hobby Lobby and made this for my friend. It was a nice little surprise for her and she's using it to carry her Bible Study materials.

To welcome the newest addtion to the Moore family (this makes 7 grandchildren for Ben's parents). Veronica Ruby was born September 24, 2009. We were able to meet her when she was just 3 days old! Janet asked me to paint these letters from Ruby's newly finished pink and brown bedroom. I was honored to add a special touch for my sweet new neice.

My new standard gift for any girls birthday is an applique shirt (and a skirt if were related!). My niece is turning one and I was inspired by my good friend to make a birthday shirt with matching skirt with brown leggings. So cute! I can't wait to see her wear it!

savy. I'm an old-school cut & paste kinda girl. I've got a couple things to learn about PhotoShop. Here is my first attempt at some "professional" portraits that I took of the kids. We made a book for Father's Day. It was tough narrowing down the 300-some pictures we took that day at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati. Oh yea, made the girls dresses too!

I'm a litle new to this sewing thing. But who can resist my sweet 5 year old asking me to make her a dress from this adorable seersucker fabric with popsicles, icecream cones and cupcakes on it.

So I'm really into my applique shirts. I've been making them as gifts for the girls friends. So for Sidney's birthday I found this cute cotton skirt on clerance at Target and thought I could add something to it to make it a little more unique. Found some cute fabric to make the L O V and E and put a little heart on the skirt. I saved it and gave it to her for her birthday. Perfect for our spring break trip to Florida.

I am in love with this spring/summer line of seersucker. I found this Tutti-Fruity fabric my at JoAnn Fabric store and made several skirts and dresses for my girls and nieces. This is a patchwork skirt that was so simple to make (just cutting out squares like you would for a quilt).

This is a little glimpse of my bedroom. I made the window valances to match the blanket on the bed. Bought the pillow sham & matching duvet cover at Target. Made the pillows on the bed, there are three of them. And covered the headboad myself. If I was on one of those HGTV decorating shows I would have a breakdown on how much it all costs. But I don't.
