Triplet Tote – Sewing 101 – My first real sewing project!

Triplet Tote - Sewing for beginners! Sewing 101 #sewing #sewingforbeginners #sewing101

I completed my very first real sewing project! YAY!! I’m so excited! Back in December 2012 my mother-in-law bought me the most AWESOME gift ever: my very first sewing machine! Even though this awesome sewing machine had Confidence in its name, it still didn’t give me confidence to sew! I’ve realized that my problem doesn’t really apply to the sewing part, but mostly about cutting the fabric. I’m worried that I will cut the fabric wrong and then have to scrap it. Fabric is soooo pretty and it would just break my heart to have to scrap it. ANYWAYS, I’m … {continue reading}

Swing Set – Old to New with Paint! #BEHRMARQUEE

Wood Swing Set - Old to New Again with Paint!!

Sébastien and my Dad built Gabrielle a swing set about five years ago for her birthday. It gets used everyday and year round! Yes, both Gabrielle and Emanuelle love swinging on it even when there’s snow on the ground! I should probably take down the seats during the winter (that might explain the rust on them haha), but the girls like using it during the winter too. With the sun, rain and snow… the swing was getting old looking. Yet, like I mentioned, it’s only 5 years old! So we decided to give it life again by painting it! We … {continue reading}
