I'm a Busy Girl

Hello my dears. I apologize for the lack of content lately. I'm now 9 weeks into my first semester back in college and just finished up midterms. I'm so ridiculously busy, between taking 14 credit hours at school, working 25 hours a week, and being a full time single mommy to my two munchkins that I've been neglecting the sewing and the blogging a bit while I'm trying to get the hang of this juggling thing.

I hope that you are all doing well. I've got a few projects on my table that are almost finished, and I've got a few things planned for the next few months. Now I've just got to find the time to get sewing!!

In the past month, I have dyed my hair a fantabulous shade of red. My thanks to RockNRoll Red from Manic Panic!!

I have drawn this super awesome teacup and saucer for my drawing class.

I have traded in my beloved Flock Tula for this rocking Betty Tula in Toddler size because the little rockstar is growing too fast!

 I have finished a simple navy blue circle skirt and a leopard print circle skirt recently. I have another one in a cute cherry print waiting for a zipper and a hem.

(Sorry for the crappy pictures, I just haven't had time to get proper ones.)

I joined up with the Dixie O'Dare sew-a-long, and hope to be starting on that soon. You can find out more about that by clicking the link.

I'm also working on a pretty green halter dress for my Halloween party at work, but I don't know if that one will get finished or not???!!?!? I'm going to try my best!

Thanks again for being my readers, and I really miss you all!!

Until next time!


  1. Hello! Sounds like life is busy and fun and rewarding. I don't know how you manage to fit it all in with 2 small children :) You have great drawing skills and all your skirts look wonderful. The leopard one in the photo has such a beautiful drape. Loving the new hair colour, it's really vibrant and such a fabulous shade. You look great. Sending best regards. Xx

    1. Hi there! Yes it's so busy, but absolutely so rewarding! Thank you so much for your kind words. It gets really tough at times trying to get it all done, but I remember why I'm doing it and that drives me to push forward. Best regards to you as well dear!

  2. Wow, and I thought I was busy :P Look forward to seeing what your dress for Dixe O'Dare Sew along!

    1. Thank you Esther! Thanks for stopping by, I'm glad to have you visit. I hope to get started on my DoD dress this next week, as I have 2 papers due Sunday at 11pm!!!

  3. You really have been burning the midnight oil, lovely lady. Great job on all your sewing projects. I'm sure it might be tricky to squeeze in time to craft (goodness knows it's something I can almost never find time for these days, much to my chagrin) with everything that you've got going on.

    Your new hair colour is just gorgeous!!!
