I am 35 and the mom to two amazing daughters, step mom to a fantastic young woman and nana to my beautiful granddaughter. I started my fitness journey at the end of 2015 with 80 pounds to lose and tons of knowledge to gain.
I chose the 21 Day Fix (a fantastic Beachbody program by Autumn Calabrese) and quickly saw the results I had been craving for years! After two very successful rounds I decided to take my journey to the next level and chose to become a Team Beachbody Coach. Helping others reach their fitness dreams and goals quickly became a passion!
My name is Heather. I am a mother, who loves the Lord, her husband, her children, loves to sew, craft, read, and write. Follow along as I share my love for sewing and crafting, but I'm sure you'll find all of my other loves mixed in. Enjoy!
Pajama bottoms! Yep that's right, six pairs to be exact. For some reason, I decided (with the help of my fantastic stepmama) that all of the girls that are going on our disney trip will need matching pj bottoms. We found a huge bolt of Tinkerbelle fabric on sale at Walmart (have to love 50% off fabric). I am using the Easy Fit pattern for my the small girlies' pj bottoms, and a McCall's pattern for all of the big girls pj bottoms. (I wish Carla C would start making patterns in my size)! We leave for Disney in 24 days and there are about a million things on my sewing table. I'm hoping to finish all of the pajamas this week so that next week I can make my girls some new dresses to wear on Mother's Day. I also really want to make this super cute top on MadeByRae's blog for a concert that my handsome husband and I are attending on Saturday! Can you say busy week for sewing? I also really feel like I need to make the girls a new dress for our breakfast at Cinderella's Castle. Why do I feel like I need to make something new for each event? Well hopefully I'll finish everything on my list and post pictures of everything later this week.
Welcome to my blog. I decided to start writing my own sewing and crafting blog after reading so many wonderful sewing blogs by my lovely Disboutiquer friends. I figured if those lovely ladies and Tom could blog about their fantastic creations surely I could too. I am really a beginner in the world of sewing. My machine is a Euro Pro Shark with about 12 stitches. I also use my mom's Singer serger. (Thanks mom) I started sewing, because I couldn't really find those cute custom clothes in a size large enough for my 9 year old. There are plenty of cute clothes out there for my almost 3 year old, but I am one of those mommas that try to make thier kialddos match. the first thing I ever sewed was pillowcase dresses for my daughters. I really wasn't planning on ever making any other style of dress for them. Pillowcase dresses are easy and patterns seemed way to complicated. Eventually, I branched out and bought a pattern and the rest is history. I've been sewing for about 6 months and loving every minute of it. Well, with the exception of those times when I have to be best friends with my seam ripper. The best part is that my girlies really love everything I make for them, and I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I have created something beautiful. I am slowly building up a stash of fabric and thread in many different colors. My almost 3 year old daughter loves the fabric store almost as much as I do! I see her being the one that I pass on my sewing knowledge (limited as it is) on to. I hope you stick around and follow me on my sewing adventures! Be blessed on this day that the Lord hath made!
