It's already November, whoa -- time to put on your holiday hats! Minted recently launched a line of customizable wrapping paper that I've got my eyes on for gifts this year. Such a clever idea, yes? I love the patterns and that the paper doubles as a keepsake.
So on to the good stuff! I've partnered with Minted to bring you an awesome giveaway! Enter here for a chance to win a $150 credit to Minted to spend on anything you would like! I'm the process of picking out our Christmas cards this year -- question? For photo cards, do you prefer a photo of just your kids or do you include yourself in the Christmas card photo?
Enjoy the giveaway! Ends Monday, November 11th.
This fall I decided it was time to look for a new pair boots. Easy, yes? Well, not necessarily. I feel like I always have a long list of things I'm looking for in shoes -- comfort, style, color, ease, longetivity..especially in a cooler weather shoe.
I happened upon this crazy for you boot by Seychelles and have officially deemed it my must have shoe this fall. I have it in black but am contemplating a purchase in the whiskey color above..
Do you have a favorite boot/shoe? I'd love to hear...

I made Glory Maeve this little jacket using this Oliver + S sewing pattern. I used a pale pink herringbone fabric I picked up from Purl Soho (along with the dotted bias tape shown below) when I was in New York and opted for just a two button closure. Just in time for this sudden burst of cool weather!
My girl likes to eat. She is the type of baby that you have to be very prepared to feed her at mealtimes or you're going to have a melt down. So I chose to channel her enthusiam for food into her Halloween costume this year. I used this pattern to create her tiny chef look!
I'm excited to share with you the sewing pattern for the oh-so-popular bibs! I had no idea when I started making these bibs how often I would actually use them -- they have been one of my go-to baby items because they are light-weight, simple, washable, and easy to make!
This was my first go with a PDF pattern, so please bear with me -- I also welcome any feedback! You can download a free copy of the pattern here. Please note that this pattern is to not be emailed, photocopied, sold or distributed.
This is a great simple sewing project with minimal supplies. You'll need a few scrap pieces of fabric to piece together for the front of the bib. I've listed recommended sizes for the strips but once you feel more comforabtle, experiement with different sizes/combinations. Fusible interfacing is used to help stabilize the bib and I recommend using a soft material like fleece for the backside. For closure you can go with a button/velcro/snap/etc.
Hope you enjoy!
