Making Stuff: Easter Skirt {Vintage Sheet Refashion}

by This is Carrie on April 27, 2012

Princess was the only one who actually got a “new” piece of clothing for Easter. And by “new”, I mean a skirt made out of a thrifted and renewed sheet.  I used the Whirly Twirly Skirt pattern but changed the front to a flat waistband and and used an enclosed elastic waistband in the back. […]

Making Stuff: Easter Dress {Vintage Sheet Refashion}

by This is Carrie on April 19, 2012

I had planned on making new Easter dresses for the girls this year.  I really wanted to. But, there never seems to be enough time in the day to make everything I dream about making.  Luckily, Pumpkin was happy to wear the Easter dress I made for Princess a few years ago. “I’ve been waiting […]

Race Recap: OC Chili Trail Run Series 2012 (Race 2)

by This is Carrie on April 18, 2012

This race was destined to be either my best race ever or my worst race ever.  Sure, I was in the middle of a raging UTI, but more importantly, race #2 of the OC Chili Trail Run Series fell on the morning of the funeral for Sweet Baby James. Being an emotional runner to begin […]

Making Stuff: Little Guy Bow Tie

by This is Carrie on April 16, 2012

This year, The Baby’s Easter outfit was completely recycled. It consisted of hand-me-down pants, shirt and vest from Big Brother which I topped off with a plaid bow tie I made last year during my quest to find the perfect little boy’s bow tie pattern (which I never did find BTW).  I had never …

Happy Birthday Boy!

by This is Carrie on April 13, 2012

My little boy turned four. Weighing in at 50 pounds ( same as his 6 year old sister), he’s not so little anymore.  As much as I feared being a mom of a boy after having two girls, he eased me into it so nicely, I can’t believe it was ever a worry.  I totally […]

Tiny Vacation: Oceanside & The San Diego Zoo

by This is Carrie on April 10, 2012

When Grandma Joy calls up during spring break to say she’ll be spending some time in Oceanside (almost 2000 miles closer to use than she normally is), you can bet I threw the kids in the car, said goodbye to Todd (darn work) and headed down for a 2 day mini-vacation. It was a completely […]

Making Stuff: Little Boy’s Easter Tie

by This is Carrie on April 10, 2012

When my neighbor passed on this never-been-worn, plaid sports coat, I knew it was meant for Big Brother’s Easter outfit.  Using The Purl Bee’s Little Boy’s Tie tutorial (with “shorter” and “skinnier” modifications) and some thrifted, then hand-dyed fabric from the stash, I made a “matching” yellow Easter tie.  The majority of the tie is […]

Raid My Stash!

by This is Carrie on April 1, 2012

I’ve opened a little etsy shop to help get my stash of fabrics, trims and projects that never found a home back under control.  The shop isn’t super full right now, but I’ll add things every now and them so check back in.  Feel free to make requests for supplies you wish you could find, […]
