About us

We are sisters in a family of 7 kids!  We grew up in Colorado and crafted our little hearts with our other sister Amy and our momma who taught us everything we know :)

We now live miles and miles from eachother and use our blog as a way to stay connected to eachother and to see eachother's crafting adventures!

We love to do most anything crafty, but our heart always seems to go back to FABRIC and QUILTING.

Car seat cover!

Hi all, this is an older craft, but one that should be blogged about. My mom and I made a custom car seat cover when I had Sophie a year and a half ago. It was the biggest pain in the a$$, but turned out dang cute. It took my mom and I seven hours together! (don't I have the nicest mommy?) now I know why people charge over $200 for custom covers online. I wish this could be a tutorial, but I don't even think I could do it again. I recommend paying someone, or at least find a pattern.

Valentine's Day

I am the MUCH less fabulous sister, I wish the post below was MY craft room, or that I even had a craft room...or a laundry room for that matter. Don't look too closely at my pictures or you will see the carpet of the 70's, an accordian door the span of my kitchen and if you're lucky you will see the first stove off the assembly line.

I have just been sitting around with nothing to do so I thought I'd create some fabulous Valentine's Decor! Okay, not entirely true...I just had my second baby, bills are piling, laundry to be done, things to be excellent time for a very unnecessary craft! But that is my MO, whatya gonna do?

Since I don't have money, as demonstrated in paragraph one, a fab friend Sara suggested felt. So here are some really easy and cute Valentines decorations anyone can do!

But this little banner turned out pretty cute, if I say so myself. I used fusible web to attach the letters, but also sewed around them. I strung a ribbon through each side of the heart, as you can see. This banner goes up the railing of my stairs.

Feel free to comment on HOW ADORABLE you think these are! :)

A little Sneak peak!

Okay, we apoligize for being crappy blogging girls! We know nobody will ever come here if we post once a month. So from here on out you will get at least one post a week. PROMISE! Anyhow, I just wanted to show a quick sneak peak of my craft room (I tried to call it my studio, but just couldn't do it!). This chandelier I stole from my sis in laws wedding, sprayed it black and added crystals. Cute? The shelves in the background involve a fabulous husband, but I will get to those when I get them loaded up and organized cute. I painted the walls a taupey pink, some might call that color mauve, but I refuse to use that word unless it is 1998! So we will go with taupey pink. They turned out fab, but it did involve 3 retints at home depot because I was so afraid of having a "pink" room right off the kitchen. And yes, the most fabulous part of all is that this room is right off the kitchen! Is that not every girls dream??? I had to wait several years for this, but it is finally a reality, and it is about a month from being able to show everyone the whole room! So hope this is good enough for now.
