some fun facts about you right now:

*you love bike rides on mom's new bike.
*you love to sew, craft, cook, with mom.
*you love to work hard with dad and the boys.
*you love, love, love, your dog (so much that you are now going to pre-school so the poor thing can get a little bit of a break from your "love")

"we have a LOT!" i mentioned they better share their wealth.
then i was on the phone with another friend another day and i asked her "what's the plan for the day?" she answered "I'M MAKING SALSA!"
that's when i got a little mad at myself for not planting salsa making ingredients. i guess there's always next year.
as i walked past my super unorganized fabric shelf (on the list to be organized...sometime this week
huh...THOSE LOOK LIKE SALSA!
and hence my own homemade tomato was born.
i saw my oranges....
talk about a slippery slope of events.
yes, before you ask. tutorial in the works, so you all can make your own home made garden fresh harvest.

seriously, thank you.
i want to start something new here at V and Co. and highlight your finished products using my tutorials (my ones here or on the moda bakeshop or bought at my etsy shop!)
picture from ressica jachel using dress from a skirt tutorial
so many have sent me links, personal emails, and have uploaded to my flicker group of things you've made using my tutorials.

and i wish i had thought of this before, and made a folder in my email for "pictures and links of products using my tutorials"

but alas i did not. and my email inbox is one big huge nasty monster that i try to avoid mainly because it causes me hives with how messy and unorganized it is.
oh don't get me wrong, i've tried...I'VE TRIED to organize it, but you all keep sending me nice little notes (which i love) and wonderful suggestions (which i love) and questions, questions, questions, (which i love, and sometimes can't get to in a nice and timely fashion) and in that mess there are links to and pictures of other lovelies you guys have sent me.

if i could just figure out how to make more time in the day i could make that email inbox a little less un-organized and i could find all your lovely links and pictures.

so with all that in mind. if in the past you have sent me a link or an email with a picture of your finished product using my tutorial, would you:
A) please consider putting it in my flicker group
B) consider sending me another link and picture to your finished product?
i promise to take better care of it this time around.
here's to showing off your stuff using my stuff...or something like that.
ps: thank you for the wonderful etsy success yesterday! can't wait to see your pictures, links, and emails with those patterns in the near future as well!

when i got there. i instantly spotted this little wood hutch.
i think i pooped my pants when i saw it.
not really, but i was that excited.
we brought it home after i paid the $25 that they asked for it.
i immediately started to
play with re-arrange her kitchen and set it up. i then made this cute little banner with the vintage sheets i have in my collection. this is how i made it.
all i need now is cute pink glass knobs and i think i'll be in heaven.
i'm trying to update my shop sometime next week. i'll let you know when. expect kits for these mini-banners and some new down loadable patterns!
have a great labor day weekend!!!
see you next week!

this skirt having a zipper in the back made fitting this much easier. so i suggest you get a skirt with a zipper.
remember the pin you put on to tell you where the middle of the strap would be? pin on your sleeve where the pin marks you to. make sure your rounded edge faces out away from the zipper. and make sure you do not sew in your rounded edge.
sew close to the edge of your top.
and now you have a perfectly cute dress for your little one!
