I have all of this leather from my mom, and I’ve been slowly picking away at projects here and there. So far, I’ve made 2 of these bibs, and have a third one on the way. They’re super quick and easy, and really, the scoop part on the front makes it the best design ever.
I started off by tracing a bib that I liked.
I really like the fit of this bib, …read more
Ok, I love chocolate chip cookies. But you know? If I make a whole batch I eat TOO MANY. So this recipe is perfect. Of course, I usually double it, but nevermind that. Just make as written to avoid guilt.
I will admit, these aren’t the best chocolate chip cookies, but I’m going to chalk that up to having to measure out your egg in tablespoons….They do hit the …read more

There’s a sew-a-long going on over a Peekaboo Pattern Shop and of course I’m playing along! The chosen pattern to make is the bodysuit/lap tee. You might remember that from a review I did a while back. This time I decided to switch it up a bit and make something for my big girl! She doesn’t wear bodysuits anymore since she’s potty-trained, but I love the look of a lap tee neckline. I figured I could …read more
Mmm. Nothing better than having pancakes on a lazy Saturday morning.
Sometimes we like to have breakfast for supper even, and pancakes (griddle cakes, flapjacks…) are always the star of the show. Unless there’s bacon. Moving on…
This is a recipe I found from the Food Network, and it works every time (with my modifications …read more
