May the Force Be With Lou :: Star Wars Birthday Party

Our Young Jedi turned 8 on Sunday, and we thought it would be time to finally throw him a proper Star Wars party to celebrate.  We've been putting off Star Wars as a theme forever now because we were struggling with deciding which direction to take it.  The Star Wars...

Happy 8th Birthday, Louis!

Happy 8th Birthday, Louis!

Our sweet, smart, funny, creative, emotional, snuggly, crazy, silly, curious, amazing Louis turns 8 today.  These years have flown by and it's been such a treat to watch him grow and learn and become the person he is today.  Bennett and I are so unbelievably proud of...

Family Beach Photos 2018 + So Classic Sundress

We went, we saw, we Jerseyed and now we are home.  I haven't gone through the entire set of images that Bennett took on the beach during one of the last nights during our vacation BUT, I did selfishly pull out the images that were snapped of the three of us.  Because...

Dress Yourself with Patterns for Pirates!

Dress Yourself with Patterns for Pirates!

I'd like to first start by saying that I have incredible friends who are willing to embark on weird ideas with me.  So when I say "do you guys want to take photos in dresses I made, in a pretend garden party setting in my yard?", they always answer with a yes.  And...

Made for Mermaids :: Back to School Tour 2018

I had so much fun two years ago with M4M's Back to School Tour, that when they asked if I wanted to play along again I jumped at the chance.  More excuses to sew for and photograph my sweet boy?  Yes please! I'm so happy that Made for Mermaids is starting to give me a...

Print Directly on Your Happy Planner + FREE PDF Files!

Ooo!  Do I have a treat for my fellow planner nerds today!  I have a not-so-secret secret to share, and it's that I still love using a pen + paper style planner for keeping my family's schedule in.  I don't know why, but it's easier for me to read, see...

Outside it is roughly 3000% humidity, and I'm hardcore craving fall and all of the festivities that come with it.  Summer is just not my jam, friends.  But to top it off, RP Custom Fabrics sends me this adorable Halloween fabric and now all I can think about is how...

Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink

You know that one color that you always avoid because you think it'd look horrible with your own personal coloring?  Pink is it for me.  I worry about it being too close to the pinks in my own complexion.  My hair is basically a darker shade of pink.  And I'm actually...

Just a Little DTY About Boho Fabrics

Here's my little DTY about Boho Fabrics: I adore Emily and her brand.  Really, I do. Why DTY?  Because that's the type of gorgeous fabric that she sent me!  It's blue and white and gorgeous and is an DTY...which means...

I love making things for Louis.  I especially love when those things are a little more funky than just a normal tee.  When RP Custom Fabrics started sharing their newest lineup of Jurassic prints I was all "GIVE ME ALL OF THEM NOW".  But I took a much cooler approach...

Slither by RP Custom Fabrics

Deep breaths, Katy.  Deep breaths. It's not like this is the first time I've put a photo of myself in a swimsuit on the internet.  But it's the first time I've done so with "this body" and it's taking a lot of courage to share them.  But how do I go about telling...

Threads of the Month :: June 2018

Let's be real here, friends.  These photos were meant to be shared first in the insert that goes in the packages for Threads of the Month subscriptions.  And I somehow managed to seal all of the packages without putting the inserts in them.  And then, I...
