Welcome to My Modest Blog!

I've always been a crafty person. I love the visual arts and just like to create things. I tend to stare at each item in awe when it is complete... thinking "I made this!?" Call me a hopeless romantic, but the old days had it right in many ways, including traditional homemaking. I've been hobby sewing and crafting since I was a little girl. But in recent years, I found it necessary to sew clothes for my girls to keep them modestly dressed. While nursing my babies, I began making nursing covers for myself and friends. I've also done furniture restoration, crocheting, baking, painting/drawing, photography and more. Enjoying these feminine crafts and other projects has made me want to share my ideas and talents.

I hope to provide you with great ideas and quality products that will "keep you covered!" Some items will be available at an Etsy Shop. Also enjoy my tips and examples on this blog!

Monday Motivation for Mommies: I see you!

StBrigids Family Tshirts

I can't count the number of times we've lost sight of one of our kids at a playground, grocery store, on a field trip or outing of some kind. So I feel pretty savvy making these t-shirts for our family. I went to Target and bought their brightest colored shirts. I couldn't find one in a 3-6mth so I grabbed the "I'm the New Kid" onesie which worked nicely.
Our Family sihlouette
Using contemporary fonts, I wrote our homeschool name on it's side. I added numbers 01-07 for each person, parents included. I used the WiddlyTinks.com widget for a family silhouette and modified it a little in photo shop for inbetween. Printing onto iron-transfer paper, cutting out and ironing on each shirt. I Melissa-fied them with fabric marker and Wah-lah!

I can't wait to wear them to our family reunion at the park in a few weeks.
