Sneak Peek

I'm getting a head start on some projects for kids' upcoming birthdays in September. They are still young enough and have enough friends in common that we can do one bigger party for both of them.

Any guesses?

Stay tuned for more....


New Lens and a New Bag

After taking an Intro. to Digital Photography class this summer, I've been using my camera more (and exclusively in manual mode!) and have been wanting to buy a new lens. So, after much searching around, reading of reviews etc. I stopped into my local camera shop and just bought what they recommended. I am soooo happy with my new lens and thought I'd share some of my candid photos.

I am so in love with this lens, I can't say it enough. And, a new, larger, heavier lens, needs a new camera bag! I've been meaning to do this for a while, and this was just the kick in the pants I needed. I made the insert for the bag using this tutorial from Lil Blue Boo.

This cute, $30 Target purse is the new home of my camera and all my lenses.


Indigo Bunting

No, not the bird....a baby bunting! I finally got around to using this pattern I picked up on my recent trip to Portsmouth Fabrics.

A coworker of mine is due with a baby boy at the end of September and I thought this would be perfect.

It was fun to do something I've never done before. And, Kwik Sew patterns are really great. Although, the hood was supposed to have an elastic casing and I could not figure out how to do it. I decided to just skip it. The bottom is a bit wonky too, but it's less obvious when it's laying flat, and probably when it's full of baby too.

The little bear ears are my favorite part. Too cute! I'm hoping to get some time to do the little jacket next.
