AKOMA with Clinton Modern Creative!



Good Morning! Today I have a gorgeous new bundle I curated for Clinton Modern Creative ! This fabulous new line is called AKOMA by Rashida Coleman Hale’s last collection for Cotton + Steel. 

This fabulous AKOMA bundle is listed & on sale until Sunday evening! So grab your bundle before they’re all gone!! 



I’ve created a handful of items with my bundle so far... A few small & large “Perfect Essential Oil Pouches” made with the GeoGrid pattern in teal, pink & ivory! I really love this print as I tend to lean towards florals, so this is definitely a print to add to your collection to shake things up” a bit if you have a habit of using all the florals too! 



*Pattern for my Perfect Essential Oil Pouch can be found by following that link. You’ll need to downsize on your own to create a mini as there is no pattern for it. 




I also made a fun little mini “+ sign” quilt with all the fun prints in this bundle along with the ivory geogrid used for the binding. 



Mini Quilt Pattern is by ReannaLily Designs and can be found In her Craftsy Shop! 




It’s a bold, funky line, very true to Rashida’s unique style!! I love all the fabulous prints and know that you will too! 




On that note i’m off to do some creating! Be sure to check out these and other fabulous fabrics available Clinton Modern Creative!!

Crushing my weekend goals!!!


Ok.. so my weekend goals were next to nothing, and here I am, crushing them! LOL!! 

Honestly all I wanted to accomplish was the following: 

  1. Catch up on laundry. ALL done. 100% caught up. 
  2. Stay in comfy clothes and hang around the house. 50% done. I shall probably accomplish the rest of this goal tomorrow.
  3. Bake something with Mya. She asked for Pillsbury cookies. We did. LoL! It counts. 
  4. Play with my Christmas fabrics. Yes! I made a big stack of tissue sleeves which sold like hot cakes! I have a new stack to list in the morning. I have coffee sleeves on the go, which i’ll finish in the morning and list in the afternoon. 



Tomorrow I hope to do about the same... lol! I’d like to finish the coffee sleeves, make a nice, big dinner and putter around the house. 

On another note, I sold a pair of winter boots that I had listed on FB today! It was so nice to have someone not try to ‘talk me down’, not show up, or try to offer me $30 on a pair of $140 boots that were only worn a few times (ack!). Unfortunately, once you wear footwear outside, you generally can’t return them, and they didn’t work for us, so I had to sell them. I ended up giving them $5 off, and still made $85.00, which is a nice, tidy sum to have back in my pocket! They were happy with the boots and I was happy with the sale! 

And that’s it really... an ideal weekend for me! 

How’s your weekend going? Are you doing anything fun & exciting? 

It’s the weekend!!


Yep... this is 100% accurate. Just throw in some sewing and this is going to be my weekend in a nutshell! It’s supposed to be rainy and cold, so hanging around the house getting things crossed off of my to do list works just fine for me! I had a busy week, so puttering around in comfy clothes will be wonderful honestly! 

My last post about about that woman who sent me a nasty message telling me how much she disliked me and that people only purchased my items out of ‘pity’, well, people must be *really* pitying me lately because nothing I post is lasting longer than 10 minutes in the last 24 hours! The best revenge is success right? Then i’m on it!! 

As always, I’m quite grateful for each & every sale as it’s been a speedy couple of weeks with a big, FAT cork order, a very large order of fabrics (I desperately needed solids to stretch out my patterned fabric & allow me to put more fabric combos together) and all new winter bedding for child #2! Phew! 

Her nasty bullying message has me wondering though... 

Do people really only want to read about “Sunshine & Rainbows”? I try not to do that, because it’s not realistic and I can’t relate to that. I’ve promised myself that I will always keep it real online. When I have a great day, awesome!! When I have a bad day, well, that’s life. Should I only post when things are going fabulously? 

When I’m sore from sewing to the point of physically not being able to move my arms/wrists, or when I have a sick kid, or when I need advice with something, so on and so forth, should I just zip it and keep it to myself? Often times I post asking for help/advice because I figure there’s always someone out there who has a little gem of wisdom to share with others and sometimes it’s that exact gem that works for solving the problem that i’m having! 

I’ve debated taking my blog down SO MANY TIMES because it makes me an ‘easy target’ apparently, and getting hate emails and nasty comments can get exhausting at times. I’ll never understand those who have to stomp on someone else like that... does it make them feel better about themselves? Does it really make them happy in some weird twisted way? It would definitely be easier just to “call it a day” & be done with it. One less way for me to become the target of someone’s poisonous tongue. 

Anyway, i’m rambling now, and i’m absolutely starving, so i’m going to go throw on some dinner & rest my wrists for the night. 

Sorry about having comment moderation on for now, but it is what it is.
