While this hasn’t been my busiest blog year I have to say I am so excited to see how things have come along! This year started out differently then I had expected at the beginning of the previous year… our surprise #5 was still a tiny little thing and I savored every moment of it! Off all the things & my kids she has changed the most noticeably… my sweet little infant is now a running, climbing opinionated toddler! lol
One of my favorite pictures ever from January 2013! Mama was tired and needed a cup of coffee so I set her on the floor, I came back out and she was fast a sleep, I just couldn’t help but sit and watch how peaceful she was.
Then our spoiled little princess turned 1!
And while she is super cute, she is also a VERY opinionated, little trouble making stinker, who thinks she is 6+ years old like the big kids, lol.
The other kids have grown a ton too… everyone says ‘they grow up so fast’ but you don’t realized just how true that is until you have kids of your own! My oldest is reading middle school level books and the 1st graders are right on his tail! Little man started is 2 year old preschool class as well as MOPS.
Beyond kids growing up WAY to fast my crafting and sewing world has changed quite a bit! I started off the year getting to test for a bunch of pattern designers. I had a blast & it encouraged me to actually finish up projects AND be creative. While I got to test a bunch of stuff for the kids by far MY favorite has been ‘The Coat’ for me.
Then last, but definitely not least come my jump into pattern making & design. I must say this is something I have dreamed about for years and I am still disbelief that I am actually DOING IT, and not only that but people seem to like what I am doing as well. While I didn’t start until mid year I was able to release a variety of patterns in infant sizes newborn up through womens size 5X. They are simple yet stylish modern clothes that people want to wear & use!
I look forward to 2014 and the opportunities that it will bring!
