tutorial I saw on Craftaholics Anonymous, but decided to add some of these flowers, from the Craft Snob (who I love!) to the wreath as well. I was so please with the results and was so happy I added the Pomela flowers. I loved the variety of styles of flowers in the wreath. I was so happy and excited with the results of the wreath, I even made a second one for my Mom. What a great way to say "hello," to Spring!
Once I received my sewing machine and got the hang of the very basics, I searched my beloved craft blogs far and wide for clothing tutorials that seemed easy enough for me to tackle. I found Dana's tutorial for a Simple Skirt. Simple. Skirt. What could get better?!? How about the fabric she used for the first skirt!! I fell in love. After studying the tutorial, I made my way to Hobby Lobby and excitedly found the same fabric she used for the skirt! I gathered up the rest of the supplies I needed for the project and was very happy to get started. Overall, the skirt was indeed, simple. I am sure I spent much more time than Dana ever has on a skirt like this, but hey I'm just learning so that's alright. I also realized, trying it on Cupcake, it was too short - oops! Cupcake does NOT like being measured, so I blame it on that. It had nothing to do with my excitement to complete the project and not trying it on her before I finalized the skirt. Luckily, I posted my dilemma on Dana's blog and she suggested I just add another layer, so I did and it worked out well! Thanks Dana. I was so excited about this skirt, I created a second, double layer skirt. Adorable! I see many more of these in Cupcake's future...

|I added some rosettes made from an old shirt, that I hot-glued to a pin to the front, I wanted to make the additional decor transferable because I'd also love to add a big yellow bow to the front as well!|

|Hmm, What should I do, Where should I go?|
