Why Hello Friends!

How are you? Is your summer going well? What'cha working on? Me? Well I have been SWAMPED with The Creative Connection Event, Plus putting together a baby shower for my BRAND NEW NEPHEW which included making this guy ... 


{Can you tell we're crazy about owls in my family?}





His name is Otis and he's actually a kit from my friends at Adorn-It. It was super easy with very good directions ... Not that I ever FOLLOW directions, but if I did, they'd be easy:). Since he is for a baby, I used my sewing machine to sew his eyes, nose and belly embellishments, but for the original pattern they were hand sewn with embroidery floss. SUPER CUTE! Anyhow, Otis is on his way to his new home tomorrow. I just put him in his basket of goodies ...




Next up, I think I'm going to make Emma a dress (the poor thing has NO CLOTHES! It's sad really ... HA HA!) ... I have the most AMAZING fabric from my good friend Jennifer Paganelli, plus the patterns from her book Girls World are absolutely stunning ... If you have a girl to sew for, you must get this book!




Now for my SUPER exciting news ... Here's a hint ...




More information is coming, but if you live in Utah and want to get together with your fellow creative bloggers, business owners, artists and friends this one's for you! Email me and let me know if you're interested. We'd love to have you! 


Good night my Creative Friends ... 


Oh and I turned 40 this week ... :) Not too bad so far ...
