silhouette photographs.

by amy on August 18, 2011

me and luke today.

i love silhouette photographs.

i know these aren’t completely black, but i love them.

right now he is sitting at his play table, waiting so patiently for me to come and play all his puzzles with him.

he is dear.

have a lovely nite.

a couple  things.

firstly, this summer is going by way too fast. not just “oh dear, where did the time go? but - am i alone so i can wail about the fact that it’s almost over.

and secondly, there’s a fudge cake in my fridge that i want to devour like cookie monster. i haven’t devoured a cake in a while. & the last time i ate too much cake i felt very very gross. like i wanted to just smack my own face and pop myself with a pin. so i’m leaning towards no, but my house is small so the kitchen is always close no matter where i am.

the only thing i’m looking forward to this winter is the possibility of having a bun in the oven. no, i’m not becoming a baker.  i want another baby! already have the names. already have had one panic attack cuz i started thinking too much about what i went thru when i was pregnant with luke. and already stared out the window like Anne of Green Gables while reflecting on how different life will be once i have another.

so yes, i’m a giant nerd and yes, i am ready! although i asked luke if he wanted a baby brother or sister and he said “um, no thank you” ha. too cute.

hope your monday was as fun as a monday can be.




cute stuff.

my first skirt.

by amy on August 1, 2011

me & my fabric. what can i say, this was a proud day!

my sweet helper. he spends a lot of time in his underwear while we're indoors.

hello, and welcome to my sewing class! (i know, so fake)


i took sewing when i was in the fourth grade. i made a quilt. thee end.

i took sewing when i went to college when i was 21. i made a dress. thee end.

i took sewing just this past may, and let the chapters go on! cuz guess what? i am hooked and i am not giving up this time. ok, don’t judge by the photos above. i was just wanting to document my first project and then luke wanted to play photographer so i started acting like a nerd, which i find quite enthralling. but the very next day, i sewed my first skirt. and now, i really do see sewing differently and want to continue SEW badly. hahahahaha! eh hem, sorry. but truly, i am very excited and can’t wait to sew my next skirt & then soon, my first dress. this is the beginning of one of my biggest dreams, to have my own clothing line.

it’s on! & yay!


ps i will post the skirt soon. it’s actually in the dryer right now. fingers crossed i don’t find a wadded ball of fabric and thread upon removal. i would wail.

pps i got my hello kitty sewing machine at overstock.com, the reviews all over were outstanding and yes, i do love the utter cuteness of it. i got my fabric from joann fabrics which is also where i took my sewing class for only 17.50, what a deal! 

ppps i got the tutorial to sew this skirt from here: sew skirt from scratch, pattern free!

getting things done.

July 13, 2011

  trying to get things organized.  purging and tossing & sometimes doing karate kicks in between it all. not for any danger, just cuz i get annoyed and it releases steam. that’s my little “people” person in the photo above, i found her and decided she needed her picture taken after being with me for […]
