Giveaway Day!

It’s been months since I’ve sewed anything. Mostly because my sewing table and fabric are in storage. But I still have plenty of stuff I’ve sewn in the past. So when I noticed that today is yesterday was Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day I knew I’d have something. And it’s the perfect thing for the holidays! […]

Recycled Crayons

We recycled some crayons this weekend. I really wanted to use my Ikea Silicon molds, but turns out they aren’t oven friendly. Instead I used my old mini-muffin pan.
