  60. Congratulations on the big 1000! Your blog is one of those that I have to be careful with, because I could get lost in it for hours! I work full time from home and care for my daugther, so I don't have a lot of time to actually make any of the crafts, but my make-someday-list gets longer every time you post ๐Ÿ™‚ I discovered your blog when Jill from Homemade by Jill did a guest tutorial for the baby jean skirt made with dad's old blue jeans. My hubby had just ripped a pair of jeans that day, so I made three skirts that night! Thanks for your inspiration!

I'll admit, I've yet to try any of your tutorials, although I've got quite a few on my list including the ruffled newborn skirt and little leggies. Hopefully when my five-month-old decides she takes naps again I can get crackin' on my ever expanding to-do list. Thanks for all of the inspiration.

  62. I love your blog, and your style. Although I don't have any kids of my own I have made the ruffle skirt and the pacifier holder for my friends as baby shower gifts. I have them saved so I can use them on my own kids someday! [Hopefully] :] Thanks for the inspiration.
