Shawnee's Secret Santa

I am a young creative minded mother of boy/girl twins. When we decided to start a family, twins were never in the mix. They have proven to be a blessing and joy and it is a wonder to watch them grow and take in the world around them. I currently work outside the home full-time and find that working along with raising an active (read= exhausting)little family of 6 (can't forget the doggies)can be a bit of a challenge. I decided to purchase a sewing machine to give my creative side a much needed boost. Over the past 6 months I have been teaching myself to sew through my own trial and error and reading of blogs and books. It seems that I have a knack for this sewing thing as I have taken to it like a fish to water. I look forward to sharing with you a little on my life and crafting projects as things take shape!

I've gone into hiding

Not really....but sorta. I am in the process of putting together a Sleeping Beauty dress for my own little princess. I found the pattern on EBay as it is no longer available anywhere else. I loved this pattern as it looks just like the one Aurora wears in the cartoon. This March we'll be going to Disneyland for the first time and I want her to have something special she could wear. She is big into dress, big into princess and when I showed her a picture... she went bonkers. I just couldn't bring myself to buy the poorly made stuff in the stores. I've seen what people pay for this stuff and then how quickly and easily it gets trashed.  The only thing is this sucker is a bear to make. Not hard per se just very detailed and lots of pieces to cut out over 30+ when all is said and done. Yet I am on a site where people have finished the product and they all say the detail on this thing makes it al worth it when it is said and done. So, in between working and caring for my family I try to get in as much sewing as possible. I just hope I can finish it in time!
