it's been a little while since i've made anything... partly because of time but also because of lack of creativity and inspiration... i guess you could say i've been in a creative funk. my aunt who lives in wisconsin has asked me to make eight sunglass cases for her store... so thanks to her, i'm back in my 'groove' and loving it!
i thought i would share with you what i've been up to - here is just one case, i have a few more to make before i ship them off to her on friday
all my cases are hand sewn/stitched using felt lining, vintage fabrics (most given to me by mom and granny) and vintage buttons. since they are handmade they are all a little wonky... but that's what gives them their charm... i hope ;) i call these little pouches sunglass cases but i have friends who like to use them to house their checkbooks... either way, they're kinda fun to have!
it's summer time so i'm a little slow with the whole blogging thing lately
but i wanted to share some pics from fathers day
we went up to santa barbara last saturday to celebrate my dad and to surprise my grandpa (he has been at a hospital recovering from a couple of strokes he had a little over a month ago) with a picnic
we then went on to my grandma's for some swimming in the salt water pool and afterwards we went on to my dad and step-mom's for some yummy pizza and chi chi's
haha this photo makes me laugh
we got home late saturday night from santa barbara but i woke up bright and early to make dan's favorite - monkey bread and eggs. brandi ended up coming over for breakfast and then we all piled in the car to head to lowers for a beach day
this weekend has been pretty boring... we lazed around yesterday and swam in our little blow up pool, went to church this morning, ate lunch, swam some more while the boys surfed and now the girls are tuckered out and watching sweet life on deck - oh how they love the sprouse twins!
i hope your weekend was lovely - do anything fun?
oh and, wow, thanks to all of you guys who read my blog - i can't believe i have 300 followers! i guess that means it's about time for another giveaway to celebrate... hopefully i can get my act together soon so be on the lookout for it!
