Where to begin

I don't even know where to begin! I've been such a slacker on this blog!  I'm amazed that anyone even looks here anymore...thanks! But, I do have a good reason, I promise! I've just been too tired to craft lately...is that a good enough reason? Seriously, I've been making little things here and there, but my sewing room has sadly been ignored lately. I just lay on the couch all day and try to take care of the kiddos. Okay, there is a reason I've been so tired too...I'm pregnant with #3! I'm 17 weeks now and we couldn't be more excited. We'll find out in two weeks what we're having...boy...girl...I can't wait to know! Then maybe I'll get a little extra boost of creativity to make some stuff for the new baby.

I have been doing SOME things lately. One of which was another guitar dress. Remember the guitar dress?
Well, I was at a little farm with the kids and Brynlee had on her guitar dress. A lady came up to me and asked where I got it. When I told her that I made it, she said that she HAD to have one and would pay anything for one! Wow...what a compliment! I ended up making one for her daughter and she was so excited. It sure does make you feel good when someone likes what you've made. Here's her little guitar dress.
Okay, now that I've explained my absence, I'll try to be better. I had so many fun ideas for summer dresses and shirts for Brynlee, but never had the energy to make anything. I'm hoping my energy will be back soon and I'll get my craft on again very soon!

Hooray, Lynette! What wonderful news...no apologies needed. I made a little menu board based on your tutorial. I loved that idea from SYTYC auditions. I finally got some time to do one.

Best wishes and happy thoughts!

Congratulations on #3. I am 23 weeks pregnant with #5. I have 3 boys and one girl and this one is a boy. I love the guitar dress and I think I'll try to come up with my own version. Thanks for such a great blog. I totally understand the no energy but mine has returned so I'm crafting once again. Just not blogging so much.

Hi I just found you through pinterest & I wandered if you have considered a tutorial on this dress? My husband is a Bass guitar player & our girls would look so gorgeous in something like this!!!
