by Christina Dennis This sweet little knitted maternity tank top was a pattern I designed pre-children – back when I had time to fiddle with knitting! It’s from my old knitting blog, and I’d like to offer it now to you free. I love the little flower embellishment on the neckline – this would be […]
by Karla Zeigler I’m excited to be able to share a simple infinity scarf tutorial with you today. As the summer draws to a close an infinity scarf can be a fun accessory to help transition your wardrobe into fall. This is my first guest post, so bear with me if I’m over explaining things […]
By Christina Dennis I love easy, breezy bohemian-style blouses. They remind me of the last days of summer and they also hide some postpartum parts of my body that I don’t find so lovely. *wink!* Empire-waisted blouses with flowing hems are also fantastic maternity wear! I found the perfect pattern by Simplicity for a pretty […]
by Christina Dennis Yes. I do have a wee bit of an obsession with all things IKEA. The prices work well for my little decor budget, and I’ve been really getting into “hacking” and glamourizing items from there! A few weeks ago, I added a bit of excitement to a plan IKEA doormat with leftover […]
by Christina Dennis There’s something about little folded tags and bits of ribbon that capture a baby’s attention. There little hands like to grasp the silky tags and their little mouths like to chew them! My babies were no different, so when they were little I made them these sweet ribbon loop blankies to cuddle […]
by Christina Dennis It’s the end of Strawberry season, and strawberries are in abundance at a great price right now! I love fruit so much and so does my family – it’s fun to experiment with new ways to eat it. I totally admit that I’ve purchased the sugary, sticky packaged fruit “roll-up” candy, but […]

by Christina Dennis I admit it: I have a fabric obsession. I love pattern and texture, and fabric is simply the ultimate combo of both! I love custom sewn drapes as window coverings because they’re such a large and beautiful showcase of fabric. I think they can change a room’s look completely! I’ve been crushing […]
Life is crazy, busy and more crazy with toddlers and babies in the house. While I love experimenting every so often with more complicated & exotic dinner recipes, I have a few that aren’t so exotic or complicated that I love to make for my family. This Homemade Gnocchi Bake that I’ve concocted is the ultimate comfort food! While it’s made from “scratch”, I find it pretty quick to put together and it’s something that both my husband – and even my toddler! – loves. Gnocchi is a type of pasta that is really easily and inexpensively made by hand; you don’t need a pasta machine to make it because it’s rolled and cut into pieces. Chopped chicken is optional in this meal, and the addition of tomatoes and spinach add some tasty veggie goodness!
I love taking photos of my two girls! They’re just so darn cute and I want to capture every stage of their little lives with images that I can treasure forever. While I like to take photos with natural backgrounds (like the beautiful outdoors), I also like to experiment with creating interesting backdrops with easy and inexpensive materials that I have in my crafty arsenal. My favourite materials to use as backdrops are simple fabrics and white banner paper – both of which also work really well ask backdrops for product photography if you’re a DIY mommy that sells her creations!
