Miss Matatabi Noodlehead Divided Basket for the Dogs!

Okay, okay… I had one last project to complete before jumping into Halloween! You’ve probably heard me mention BDAR on here before (just a time or two…) ;) If not, they are a super great organization I volunteered for back in Wyoming. They take in dogs from shelters all across Wyoming… lots who are “high risk” of being put down including those who either don’t photograph or show well in the shelter (i.e. black dogs or those who stress out too much in the shelter environment) or are just unlucky to be in high kill shelters that fill up too fast. They are pros at adopting out these “less-adoptables”. They also brought this guy into my life, so that’s a win right there :) So anyway… a while back I found this wine while on a wine tasting adventure and thought it absolutely needed to go to BDAR :) Perfect for their annual Bark & Wine fundraising event silent auction, don’t you think!? I made something for the event 2 years ago but missed last year. …

Syrah Skirt, Plantain Tee, Plantain Tank, So Zo Undies, & Puppy PJ Pants!

Alright! So if you saw my post on The Monthly Stitch yesterday, this is mostly the same… but I ended up eeking out two more projects from my piece of pink cotton rib knit while I had it out so here’s everything in one place :) Aaand my title kinda gave it all away…  so do what you will with this post lol In case you missed my post over there, this was my new-to-me outfit for Indie Pattern Month :) It was my first time using a pattern from both of these designers and I’m really happy with how they turned out. DEER & DOE PLANTAIN TEE This tee is everywhere and I finally understand why! I’ve had the pattern downloaded for a while but haven’t gotten around to making it till now. The RTW white tee I have in my closet right now is looking pretty old and sad so I desperately needed a replacement :)… this one fit the bill perfectly! The fabric is a cotton spandex blend knit from Girl Charlee. Same one I used …

Memorial Day

I spent a month in DC for one of my pharmacy rotations during my last year of school. It’s such a beautiful city to visit, and home to so many wonderful memorials honoring those we’ve lost. In honor of the day, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photos from while I was there. My uncle’s name is in the top photo. I never got to meet him, but I hear he was a really amazing guy. Uncle Andy, I’m thinking of you today. Until next time,

Christmas Crafting 2014

Okay, so I didn’t go as all out as I did last year (see part 1 and part 2), but I also ran behind and didn’t get to finish one of the things I was working on. I made it to Christmas Eve thinking I could still finish and finally made the decision to put it off and enjoy my time so I let my sis know part of her gift would have to come later. Crafting should never be stressful :) So here are the ones I did finish in time: #1. Foldover Clutch For my BFF! Made using this tutorial from Skirt As Top that I’ve been wanting to try, and I also followed the leather recommendations from you & mie with my faux leather. My outer fabrics were from Joann’s from a splurge I had before leaving Cheyenne :/ and the lining was from my stash.   I used these gift tags this year… love them! #2. Double-Sided Infinity Scarf This I made as part of my gift for the Great Christmas Gift Exchange, put on by …
