Sewing has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. My grandma, Laura, was a phenomenal seamstress. From a very young age, she taught me sewing skills. In college, I studied Apparel Merchandising and Design at Central Michigan University (Fire Up Chips!!!). For many years, I did not use my skills and had to relearn what I forgot in 15 years when I did not use my skills. Finally, I decided I needed to put my college degree to use! 

This page will focus on the correct sewing tools to use, recommendations of PDF pattern companies, fabric companies, and step by step tutorials. 

I love being creative and making something I am proud of. There is a feeling of accomplishment when you finally "get it". I refer to my sewing as my "sew-jo". My hope is that you learn something here and will find a part of your creative self that you did not know existed in you. Happy sewing!

More to come......

How did I get those eyelashes? You asked, I answered!

 So since I posted this picture yesterday on Facebook and Instagram, I received many questions about my lashes. They are called.... easbeauty 2020 Upgraded Magnetic Eyeliner and Eyelashes Kit, Magnetic Eyelashes with Eyeliner, False Lashes 5 Pairs with Tweezers, Easy to Wear  Today, they are a lightening deal on Amazon for $16.91! My lashes are basically non-existent. They are very, very blond and fine. All you do is apply the magnetic eyeliner close to your lashline, let it dry and then the lashes snap right on. Easy peasy! I first heard about these from the book club I am in, Jen Hatmaker Book Club. I have been as my son describes "Covid Mommy" since March 2020. Lately, I've needed something to just feel good. These lashes do it for me. Its a small thing that gives me happiness these days.  If you end up getting a pair, share of picture of yourself in these beauties!  Lots of love,  Jen

Another Trip Around the Sun

Hi friends,  Welcome to my blog! Yesterday,  I turned 41 years old. Like the rest of you, this past year has been one to remember. The Covid-19 Pandemic has changed how the world operates and how people interact with one another, but it's only a short time period over the course of our life.  I am thankful for my family and friends, my home, my pets, the sunshine, my health. Unfortunately, I had Covid-19 in July and am what are referred to as a "longhauler." This means I am not contagious, but the virus remains in my body attacking different body systems. The one body system the virus loves is my nervous system. It's challenging to stay positive when what is wrong is hard to diagnose and the medical community is trying to navigate something that is brand new. I have been lucky to have a great family doctor and a neurologist who I trust.  This past year being home with my family has been one of the biggest blessings of my life. Yes, I'm exhausted. Yes, it's A L

What are your goals for 2021?

Did you make any type of New Year's Resolutions? This is something we tend to do at the beginning of the new year. It always makes me think of that TV show, "The Middle." The middle child, Sue Sue Heck, always declares each year as something. She had "The Year of Sue."  This year instead of saying "I'm going to start working out 6 days a week", I'm making small goals. For example, I am doing a "40 day Sugar Fast" (Book Link) that starts on January 4, 2021. I did this last January and I really enjoyed it. Was it hard? Yes. Was it worth it? Yes. The 40 day Sugar Fast was created by Wendy Speake. She has an online community that encourages each other and helps support each other through the fast. The fast is about giving up sugar and feasting on God. Focus on HIM, not yourself. I spent my 40 days focused on praying for my niece, Luella, who was hospitalized and was in really bad shape. She was my focus. Praying for her gave me strength a
