Made it Monday: What I've been Working on

This weekend (and for the past couple of weeks) I've had a lot of orders come in. So fun! Of course, though, my sewing machine would choose to stop working this weekend. Luckily, it was an easy fix, I just have to wait a week for the part. So, I borrowed my boss's sewing machine and got a ton done! So for today's Made it Monday post, I thought I'd give you a peek at all the orders I've been working on...
"There's a new Sherrif in Town" onesie, custom order
Actually, two new Sherrifs in town. This order was for a set of twins. My friends had the great idea to turn a onesie into a Sherrif uniform,and asked me to make it.

This went with the sherrif onesies for the set of twins.

These are a couple of ties I made for an order. I'm thinking my nephew is going to need one too:)

I made a few new burp cloths.

I made this fun guitar pillow for a rock star themed nursery.

This is just a glimps of whats been going on at my place. I have to look for a few more pictures of some of the other things I've been working on. What are your summer projects?

Tasty Tuesday: Cauliflower Poppers

I have a really easy recipe to share with you today that I have come to love as a side! I found the recipe for cauliflower poppers on Pinterest and decided to try them with my chickpea burgers, since the caption on the pin said they taste like french fries. I don't know if they really taste much like french fries, but they can totally replace them as a healthier, delicious alternative. So here is the recipe:

1 head of cauliflower (if there are more than 2 of you, you'll need another head)
1/4-1/3 cup olive oil

1-Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
2-Wash cauliflower and cut it into bite size pieces. Place cauliflower in a large bowl (one that has enough room to shake up the contents).

3-Add oil, salt and pepper to cauliflower.

4-Place lid on bowl and shake it up to coat cauliflower.

5-Add more salt and pepper if necessary. Make sure it has a good coating on it.
6-Place on pan and put in the oven for about an hour. Stir every 20 minutes or so.

7-Enjoy! You can dip them in catsup or bbq sauce if you want.

What the Word Says Wednesday

So, I have been slacking big time on my memory verse memorization! With everything that had been going on, I sadly let it slip. But, I'm back and ready to start again. I have been reading in Joshua lately, and this verse stuck out to me:

Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Sometimes I worry over and/or fear some of the silliest things. This verse is such a great reminder that God is with us wherever we go.

Bridal Shower Decor

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of hosting a bridal shower for one of my very good friends. Those of you who know me, know that I love to decorate for parties and I was so excited for this one. At the time of this shower, I was extremely busy with other commitments, so one of my awesome and crafty friends came over and helped me make all the decorations. Here is what we came up with (although, imagine it with three sunflower pails. In the midst of everything going on, I forgot to take a picture before I gave away two of the pails!):

Ruffled Crepe Paper/Pin Wheel Banner

Pom Poms
Sunflower Pail Centerpiece

My friend who I was hosting the shower for loves sunflowers and was going to be wearing royal blue shoes at her wedding, so that is where the color scheme came from. I absolutely love the ruffled crepe paper! It was a time consuming to make it, but I think it really tied everything together.

Here are some links for tutorials:
