One of my Christmas gifts this year was a Garmin Vivofit 2 Activity Tracker. I was excited to use the tracker, but I was turned off by the silicone wristband that came with it. I wore it for a few days, but it clashed with everything – especially my work clothes. After searching online for alternative […]
We have made it halfway through summer, and then some! I have managed to wear a skirt *almost* every day. I went ahead and opted for shorts when we went camping last month, and there have been a few days that I never quite made it out of my pajamas, but otherwise I’ve managed to […]
Oh, we made it to Friday! I hope you managed to get out of your pants this week. Today we have Jenny from The Southern Institute, who spotted a crazy deal and ran with it! Here’s Jenny: Hello, everyone! I’m so excited to be wrapping up this week of SONP 2014. I’m one of those […]

But it was decided that since Kat of Sew Chibi has such a distinctive style, we’d throw a separate […]
Today Kelley is bringing us a refashion with a Valentine’s Day twist. Here’s Kelley: We all love a good Valentine craft. Something that brings to mind the fun things we do to literally wear our hearts. While this is a heart, and Valentine’s day is next week, I really just wanted to save this shirt […]
This is a maternity wrap top that I made. I have never worked with stretchy knit material or made a shirt before, so I’m very proud of how it turned out. Especially since I did this without a pattern. I, um, borrowed, the idea from Isabella Oliver’s maternity wrap tops, which retail for $130. My […]
