About Me

Hi, I’m Jen!  I’m a stay-at-home mommy to my most favorite little boy in the world. Ethan means the entire world to me!  Who knew mommyhood could change and brighten up life so much?  I love being a mom, and also making things for the little munchkin!  When I’m not mommy-ing (usually during naps and nighttime), I am ferociously perusing blogs and pinterest for creative inspiration!  Then, I try to turn that inspiration into something material.

It has been a couple years since I’ve learned to sew now, and still loving it!  I’ve taught myself how to sew by reading the instruction manual to my machine and online tutorials and it’s been great.  And, really fun!  I just love handmade things.  Nothing compares… nope, nothing!

I am also what they call a fabric hoarder.  Ha, totally exaggerating here… I’m not that bad, but I am obsessed with fabric, and usually buy without a project in mind.  Awful, isn’t it?  But, it makes me happy!

I decided to start a blog to keep track of all my inspiration and things made.  I am usually sewing after my son has gone to bed and into the wee hours of the night (when it is clearly way past my bedtime)!  But it’s sooooo worth it.

I currently live in Southern California where everything is sunny and bright.  I’m totally loving it.  The beach is less than a mile away, and the fabric district in LA isn’t too far!  Nope, nothing to complain about here!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading my blog!

  1. Hi Jen,

    I absolutely love your blog!!! Everything is just so precious. I get so many great ideas, just wish I was crafty enough to do them all 🙂
    I am doing an airplane birthday party for my son’s 3rd birthday next month and wanted to know if you would be interested in selling the airplane and cloud garland you made. I am in love with it. I so need to learn to sew!
    Please let me know if you still have it and would be interested in parting with it.

    Have a great week!
    Jennifer

    • Hi Jennifer! Thanks for your kind words and stopping by my little blog! Airplane parties are so fun – happy birthday to your little one! Unfortunately, I can’t sell the airplane garland – so so so sorry! It’s currently hanging up in my son’s room because he still loves planes! Although I’d be happy to make another if time permits. If you’d like, you can e-mail me at my blog name at gmail dot com, and we can chat more! 🙂

  2. hi jen,

    I feel like I know you, like seriously. We live in manhattan beach too and I just realized that you are from here because of your Beckers reference….LOVE this party and am totally copying a ton of your stuff for our MOMS Club/My Sons 4th birthday which happen to be back to back weekends.

    CHEERS and Congrats! Love your stuff!

    XOXO,

    • Hi Mitzi!

      Thanks so much for your sweet words! Funny that you picked up where I’m from because of my Beckers reference! Don’t you just love the South Bay? 🙂 Good luck with your son’s party – would love to see how things turned out! Send me some photos if you can! 🙂 My son’s birthday is right around the corner, too, so I need to get to work soon as well.

      Thanks for stopping by and please come back to visit again!
