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!

My Super Heroes

Some days it is a tossup whether us parents or our children are the bigger fans of the super hero movies. But there is no doubt that our 3 year old is dead set on being a super hero now and when he grows up.

He loves to wear his store bought costumes, but they just don't last. So I decided to create a T-shirt costume that they could wear most days, even in town. Here they are!

The girls wanted in on the fun, so I used images I found on Google to make iron-on t-shirts for them. We had My Little Ponies as My Little Avengers, and Hello Kitty as Hello Avengers. You can find so many images mock-avenger teams, from Disney characters, Legos, and more. My son's favorite shirt was iron-ons of the Super Hero Squad characters, with their logo on the shirt pocket. Below is the Lego Avengers.
