Sewing Mondays - Knotted Headband

To help encourage myself to practice sewing as much as I can, I came up with "Sewing Mondays". This will be a chance for me to show you all the tutorials I have tried, my resulting product, and what I thought of the tutorial {I promise all comments will be nice!}. Maybe I will even become proficient enough to post my own tutorials! {Baby steps first, though.} To start out, I'll post a Sewing Mondays post every other week, but if I really get the sewing fever, maybe I'll post every week!

Hey all, I'm back! It's Monday which means I have a new Sewing Mondays for you all. This week's Sewing Monday tutorial is the Knotted Jersey Headband from DIY Confessions.

Summer Break

Hi everyone!!

I know it has been a week since I have posted anything. I've decided to take a summer break from the blog. Lately I've been getting overwhelmed with working, trying to keep a social life, and keeping up with the blog. So I decided to take last week, this week, and next week off.

Don't worry I'll be working on some fun projects to share with you all for when I return!

Simply Create Thursdays #18

Happy Independence Day everyone! I hope you all have a great day and are enjoying the day off with barbecues and fireworks! It's a pretty rainy day here, but hopefully it lightens up a bit so we can fire up our grill and enjoy some fireworks.

Okay, it still is Thursday which means Simply Create Thursday time! I know I'm a bit late with the party today, but better late then never!

Here are my features from last party:

Oh Sew Crafty Life shared a fun and easy swimsuit coverup tutorial.

How awesome is this furniture transformation from Ashley's Dandelion Wishes?!

I'm loving this DIY Cork Pin Board from Place Of My Taste. There is nothing better than an easy and functional project!

We don't have a dog, yet, but if we did I'd definitely make this DIY Pet Feeding Station from Creative Dominican!

10 Patriotic Crafts

Truth time: I don't have a 4th of July Craft this year! What?!! I know, I know I'm a terrible craft blogger. : / There just wasn't time and I wasn't very inspired this year. 

It seems as though those who link up to my weekly link party, Simple Create Thursdays, had plenty of inspiration. Lots of people linked up great 4th of July crafts. I thought it would be fun to do a little round up of those links:
