Today a friend of mine sent me this pattern for the Lovely Little Life Blog and asked if I could make them:
Flower Power Baby Sandals
She also wanted an elephant beanie for her soon-to-be baby girl, so I figured why not a matching set?

Here are so more photos of the sandals:

I love having this down time to make gifts for my friends :) But now it's time to start working on projects for my Etsy shop!  Photos to come <3

Bitter Sweet

So proud of my amazing husband for graduating with his Masters Degree from Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, CA.  On the flip side....slightly bummed because that means we'll be leaving this little paradise/fairytale land in a couple of weeks...but off to the next adventure!  The positive is that we have 2 weeks with no school/work to enjoy CA! <3

Dresser Remodel!

What else would you do on a Tuesday when your parents are in town?  Make Dad help you refinish a dresser :)  Dylan and I are moving across country soon so I stopped working until the big move next month to really enjoy CA before we leave this beautiful state!  In my downtime I've been planning some mini-makeovers to our house!  I figured why not start with our old dresser?

Here is the before picture:

Our neighbors moved and left this beauty behind!  All it needed was a little TLC :)  Dad and I sanded down the many layers of varnish and wood stain that had been put on it over the years.  Then we proceeded with 4 layers of Glidden's Vintage Yellow paint.

And the result!
And here it is in our bedroom:

I absolutely love it!!!
