Charleston, South Carolina

This may be one of my favorite trips that I have ever taken with my honey. I genuinely enjoyed every single minute of it. The weather was gorgeous, the food was amazing, and even in the midst of Covid is was nothing less than perfect. On the first day we got in, the humidity literally…

Indie Pattern Highlight: Chalk & Notch

Awhile ago, I decided I would take the time to shed some light on some awesome indie patterns & how to sew on a budget. Today, however, I am taking the time to talk about a company that goes by the name, Chalk & Notch. When I first saw the patterns they offered, I was…

New York

Oh, how I love New York. I can honestly say this is one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. I did & ate SO much during this time period. I wanted to start a blog on great places to visit & great places to eat while traveling & this was the first place I…

A Dozen of Roses

This dress was made for a client, however, I have stated before in other blogs about a photographer that takes amazing pictures, well guys…… drum roll…… this is her!

Feathered Dreams

Hi guys! I haven’t seen you for a short while, as I have been extremely busy, however, lets put excuses behind us & get straight to it. When this beauty approached me & asked for a feathered dress, I thought no big deal. Feathers can come individually or as a trim. For me, personally I…
