Need more MoTiVaTiOn!

Its a bright and sunny Monday today in Mass! Super nice. Makes me miss Florida already. Again, as usual, when I get out of my routine of work/sewing/cleaning/etc, its takes a while to get back into the groove of things, I am hoping to bring the new sewing machine back out tonight! I ended up picking out the the JANOME 3160 (which I think I've already busted the bobbin on trying to whip out my mom's new beach bag for mother's day to have ready for our cruise last week), supposively I got a good deal on it too :)

I am losing a sense of creativitly but thought I wanted to try to make camryn a Jasmine from Alladin inspired dress eventually. You just can't seem to find those, not even in Disney! (only the genie looking outfits, which she has because jasmine is her favorite princess). I thought making a play dress would be a fun challenge, when I gain a little more time. Camryn has an ornament with her in this dress as pictured on whatever this maybe, its the only thing i could find googled haha, but I know a dress should exist!

In the mean time I still have a bunch of projects to catch up on! i have a bunch of family and friends waiting for some lovely items I promised them. A Kimono here, a tutu there, a purse here, and dress there, ughhhhhh, i really need motivation, so help me hehe!!!!!

Here a few vaca. pics from Disney! Enjoy, we did! :)

Back to Reality

Hi I'm back ! (again) Just came back from a lovely Disney cruise with Camryn, my mom and niece Grace. I'll share pictures from that down the road when their ready, we just got back last night and Im still exhausted. Why does vaca do that????

These pictures here are of my other niece Amber wearing on the new dresses I made. It's in the Local Collection now and just was able to get some more of that Free Spirit fabric (tan w/ white flowers), thankfully, because I got some inquiries to have some made. I just fell in love with the fabric, it looks so sweet and its super soft too.

Unfortunately Amber stayed home for this trip! We took the two older girls who had a blast.

It's been a few weeks so I thought I'd take part in Friday Confessionals!
1. I am ashamed the girls were spoiled rotten on the cruise.
2. I missed my Jacoby beyond belief and pretty much cried when I saw him last night.
3. My poor daughter clogged the cruise ship toilet!
4. I really didnt relax too much as planned while away
5. Although sad vaca is over, my own comfy bed made me sleep like an angel last night
6. I can't wait to get out of work today and go squeeze my cobeman again!!!!

In Memory of Layla Grace and Others alike....

I learned today that in honor of Layla Grace who passed recently, an organization was created called Layla Grace Children’s Cancer Research Foundation. Her story is heartbreaking, but her family is amazing.
Today I also came across a little girl named Kate, which you can find the link in my side bar. These stories truly touch my heart and life, and I only wish I could fix every little kids problems, fears, and disease. Because I am limited, I can only share and hope for others to follow, share and pray as well for these incredibly brave young ones who unfortunately have to endure such hardships so young.

You can also visit Kaeden's journey as well and send warm wishes along here.
I am thankful everyday for the health of my kids, so I will add this to my Friday confessionals,

Have a good and safe weekend everyone and hope to catch up more next week!
