Bunny Ears & A DIY Card

I am loving bunnies this Easter!  I got the cute hat idea Here.  Yep I used the same fabric as the Warhol Dress!  There might just be enough left to make ME something :) 
I have been playing around with graphic designing this past week.  I wish I could go back to school and study it...maybe someday.  I have a friend who is a graphic designer who I've had create several things for me, but that costs money-and we all know how cheap the hubs is ;) So in an effort to live more frugally I decided to play around and see what I could create.  While doing so I happened upon a fun blog called Good Look CookBook which features design recipes.  This is where I got the "Some bunny Loves You" and the bunny icon idea.  I found a free background at scrapblog.com and put it all together in Power Point.  And voila!  A free personalized card!  Easy Peasy.
Can't get enough of those pretty blue eyes!

Comfy & Casual

Wish we had a beach nearby that we could visit in this cute summer dress!  Instead we are trying not to go crazy while we play inside and wait for the snow to melt.

 I have discovered lots of cute clothing tutorials lately and when I spotted this pink knit at JoAnne's I knew just what I'd make:  The Warhol Dress by Dana at Made.  She offers a FREE pattern and a great tutorial.  This was my first time sewing with knits and it was sort of challenging!  At first, I sewed the yoke on with cream colored thread and it did NOT look good.  My crooked stitches screamed homemade, so the perfectionist in me pulled out the good 'ol seam ripper.  Sigh.  And I redid it, this time handstitching the yoke with a hidden stitch.  It looks much more professional and although it was more time consuming I am really happy with the result. Thanks for the great tutorial Dana!
