A Vacation Memory

 A memory for Life

My husband, baby and I were in vacation with my husband's whole family; It was my MJ's first family vacation and I wanted to make it memorable for him in the years to come.
During our time spent at the beach with his grandparents and dad, we used to pick up shells and MJ collected them in a bucket. So I had this wonderful idea while having a breakfast picnic my son and I at the beach.

The lamp you can find it in a Target store or online
this lamp is very easy to work with.

The lampshade needs to buy separate!

I washed the shells in fresh water and put them to air dry, meanwhile I brushed the dry shells with a clear polish nail to keep them shiny.
With a permanent marker I wrote the date of the family vacation and under the shell that I could recognize, I wrote the name of the person who found it for MJ.  This was the idea of  my mother in law.

  And this is the result!

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!

Cocktail Dress

Hello my dear friends, here I am again with a cute pattern but even better yet, exquisite fabric that I have been looking for at least a year. Ever since I saw the pattern from McCall 6696 I knew that I wanted to make it just like the one in the cover but I could not find the fabric to make it just like that. One day in a trip to Atlanta, My husband let me down at Joann's Store to see what was new and there I found my fabric and wait! ...... in 70% discount, from $29 dollars I paid $9 dollar per yard.  So believe me, I was really happy that day.  I have treated this dress with so much care and I have enjoyed every part of making it.

Pattern Review: I love it and can not wait to make it again but probably with different features. I did not make any changes to the pattern and I did sew the size 14 which it has all my measurements.
I hope this dress can motivate some of you to make it and hopef…
