This project has not been tested and while I have made every effort to follow the guidelines provided, this mask is not proven to effectively protect against transmission of germs. Please continue to practice social distancing and stay home whenever possible.
It has been amazing to see veteran sewists and beginners alike, come together (virtually) to sew face masks for their communities. There are so many great tutorials out there right now but since people are using what they have on hand, I thought it might be useful to see the easy way that I made some masks with bias tape.

Looking for beginner sewing projects for kids? I decided to pull together a few of our favorite and most adorable felt stitching projects. These are all perfect little sewing projects that you can do in an hour or so but I specifically selected them because they are easy enough for a kid to take on as a first sewing project.
Ice Cream Sunday!: The Perfect Ice Cream Social Party. It’s just the most perfect summer party idea and it can be pulled together so easily! Here are all the details, DIYs and sources for you to pull together your own perfect event.
I’m so excited to finally show off the “Ice Cream Sunday” 4th Birthday party that we recently threw for Quinn. Here’s all the fun DIY goodness for this ideal Summer soiree and all the party details and sources. We started out by picking out some gorgeous supplies like an affordable (and beautiful!) foam-core cupcake stand featuring chevron on one side and solid on the other. It comes in a variety of gorgeous colors and disassembles to store flat. Also featured here is their Super Mini Strip Loaf Mold.
Join for for a fun evening of watercolor painting in Dallas/Fort Worth. We will start with a live demonstration and warmup practice of flower painting and then each paint a flower-full Texas.

I even have outlines for you to trace and paint in if that is most comfortable. I hope to see you there! Sign up info below.

This is a Valentine’s Day recipe, but you can go ahead and make it in a circle shape and eat it any time of year. The parmesan crust is so buttery and fluffy, and the tomatoes burst with flavor on a bed of caramelized onions and cheese. Folding into a cute heart shape was a fun way to make it a Valentine’s Day recipe, and just made me happy.

I’ve mentioned that bad puns are one of my favorite things about Valentines day (and in life.) Since cacti are one of my other favorite things, here are some sweet little pokey cards that bring together a few of my favorite things. If you were to tie one of these around a bottle of champagne and put Jaime on a plane with it, that would pretty much put all of my favorite things together. Anyway, here are some cute prickly valentines that you can make if you have paper, a fine point marker, a green stamp pad and a finger.
Basically you dip a large fingertip (I used pointer) in the inkpad and make the bottom pad of your cactus. Then a small fingertip (the pinky perhaps) and make the rest of the cactus. Kid fingers would make this even more adorable. Next draw a little pot and some funny words. You don’t need to be a calligrapher to make this work, even just block letters will be perfect.
Leave all your pals a note or tie one around a small potted cactus for your bestess and mostess.
