Chain Link Necklace Giveaway!

It's been a busy week, so apologies on the delays in posting! I've got a bunch of amazing things on tap for the weekend, so you'll be seeing some new and fun pieces shortly!! I thought a giveaway would be fun to throw out today, just because I'm in love with all of these goodies myself! There's a black and gold chain link necklace up for grabs along with a compact magnetic mirror with the coolest black and white print. (Perfect for that little side pocket in your purse!)

To enter, leave a comment below listing the color butterfly you'd like most (pink/yellow/blue) along with something that you're excited about this fall! Maybe your fave TV show is coming back, or maybe you just planned your Thanksgiving and you don't have to fly this year (!!!). Share your thoughts below! I'm excited for a road trip to San Francisco early November as well as the hopes that we get some rain soon. I'd actually really love a crazy rainy-thunderstorm weekend to help get our drought situation on the road to reversal! Plus it's fun to veg and watch movies on the couch :)

Creativebug Classes - Get Your Muumuu On (& win a free membership!)

I was up in San Francisco a few months back working with the awesome Creativebug on a few fun video classes. If you're not familiar with them, they are the go-to when it comes to online craft workshops. They've gathered some of the coolest artists and crafters to create contents ranging from crochet (this is where I'm learning!!) to homemade soap (guess what I'm giving out for Christmas this year??).  Creativebug - New Dress A Day

I was lucky enough to get invited to create some videos of my own! My first class launches today and it's all about muumuus! I show you three different muumuus and three different ways to sew and style them - perfect for the summer. It's like you get to actually have me in your house sewing with you!!

Teaser: Blue Bridesmaid Dress

Happy Friday, friends!! I just wanted to thank you for all the warm wishes and thoughts being sent my way - my dad is doing amazingly well, post-surgery, and my week of hanging out with the family during his recovery has come to an end. So long North Carolina and your beautiful white blossoms - I couldn't take my eyes off of the gorgeous flowers! We took a quick pic before I left because he said that I had to do something with his scrubs!! His nurse gave me an extra set to sew and I just can't wait to work them into something fantastic! That's on the summer project list, for sure.

New Dress A Day - hospital scrube

It was fun to go a bit offline this week to hang out, help run errands, pick up meds, and cook (lots of homemade hummus and other heart healthy snacks) before getting back into the swing of things at home.

I will be getting this dress finished to post on Monday...
