The Easy-Peasy Light & Breezy Skirt | Oomanoot #free #sewing #tutorial #skirt

We didn’t have much of a winter this year at all. It was warm-ish during all the months which should have been cold, but the second spring arrived it became scorching hot (and then it rained for a couple of days). Weird weather is upon us. In any case, it is clear that it’s time for some summer clothes. I must admit that I don’t usually sew clothes for my kids, because it’s a lot of effort for something I can buy easily and cheaply in a store, but this skirt is so easy and I got to use such fun fabrics (I mean, dancing ballerina monkeys? What could possibly be better than that?). It was totally worth the effort.

Home Improvement: Living Room Final Touches

May 7, 2014
In: Home Decor

OMG, I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last wrote. We had two holidays and I’ve been doing so much around the house that I guess I was all about the doing and I totally forgot about the writing. I have a few things to share, but I’m in the mood for a light post today, so I’ll share a few decor touches I recently added to our home.

The first thing I added is a gallery wall of family photos. These are the first pictures I’ve printed in the past 6 years or so. 6 years! I’m thinking of starting a project of organizing the photos into digital pages and getting them printed. Maybe if I put in half an hour a day I’ll be able to get it done in a… year? or two?

(Sorry about the blurry pictures, I have a “thing” about posting family pictures on the blog)
