We are gearing up for another party at our house. (Yes, it is quite overwhelming to have Paul’s, then mine, then Christmas, then Clara’s, but then we’re done for awhile.) Clara wanted to have a “snowflake party.” After asking her about six times over the course of a few days, she [...]
Stylish newborn photographs are becoming “the norm” over “a splurge.” It seems (maybe because of pinterest?) that everyone’s trying to find a great new prop or pose to use for their little one. Here’s one idea that is darling and a DIY…
I posted my preview of my first hand-smocked dress a few weeks ago, and I’m happy to say it’s finally finished (and photographed)!
Pardon my model, at first she wasn’t in the mood for a photo shoot.

This Christmas, my daughter had the privilege of wearing it.
It was handmade by a woman in Mobile, AL over twenty [...]
My daughter was given a stack of hand-me-downs from her cousin a few days ago, and as I was going through them, I stumbled upon the cutest little Gymboree top. It’s A-line shape struck me as being very practical for a baby’s figure, and [...]
I’ve had this petal skirt saved in my list of sewing project for awhile now, and I finally got around to sewing it! This was a pretty quick project to make a cute infant girl’s skirt. I used the same lavender linen as I used for the little girl’s romper [...]
