Your dress is so cute and your daughter is absolutely adorable. I LOVE the picture with her chubby little toys up!

That pillow case print is very pretty. Love the color withyour daughter's hair.

Everybody has good ideas to extend the tabs and make the dress last longer. As a general rule, sewing pattern sizes are usually larger than ready to wear. But, all in all you did a good job and deserve to be proud!

I think that organizing your studio and taking photos of what you did (maybe even before and after photos!) could be a nice entry for this challenge. Smiley Perhaps you'll come up with some awesome organization ideas that will be helpful to others!
Yes! That's the plan.....the hard part is organizing a mess that took 15 years to make by February 1!  Shocked I better get busy! The sooner I finish, the sooner I can get back to crafting!  Grin

I have been reading and reading this and trying to figure out to make this challenge work for me! I finally go it today! (I think anyway!)

Since I am a newbie here, well, found all of you in December 2007, I have been so excited to get crafting. One of my resolutions was to craft more this year. It's been so long and Craftsters has me all fired up. But...how to make that fit this challenge! I think, if I get my "studio" organized....I'll spend more time in there! Does that work for this? Finding some clever ways to organize the studio? Hmmmmm....?  Huh

"Thanks for your concern!"   Tongue My daughter's often acuse me of "being such a mom!"  Grin I can't help it...I am what I am!
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: "Green" Christmas Tree? on: January 12, 2008 05:53:23 AM
I saw on one of the decorating shows over the holidays a cool idea. It was designed for a family with little storage space.

A telescoping hoop tree. (at least that's what I'd call it!)

It was made of concentric hoops, attached one to the other with ribbon. They collapsed for flat storage. A post was plastered into a pot and held the whole thing up through the center. The top smallest hoop at the top had ribbons that met in the middle allowing the post to create a "peak" at the top for the star! It actually was very cool looking when ornaments were hung from it. The one on the show had white lights attached to the hoops. But, you could handle the decorating however you wanted.

As for a potted tree that can be planted after the holidays are over....if you don't have space in your own yard to plant it, you could always donate it to a school, park, memorial garden....i'm sure there is someplace that would welcome a lovely tree! The recipient would benefit, the earth would benefit, and you would have the pleasure of remembering Christmas past each time you saw the tree and know you've done your part in being Green!

As the mom of 3 daughter's, 2 of which are in college.....be careful building a loft!

The college my eldest daughter attends provides lofts when requested. (That is very nice.)

The college my second daughter attends, has very specific plans for lofts that are allowed in the dorms and they had to be approved by the RA. (I'm sure there must be some sort of liability issue in dorms?) Plans for the lofts were available on their web-site. We built this daughter's loft.

So, you should check with your school before you go any further. It'd really stink to buy all the materials and build one only to find you have to take it down.

As for the youngest daughter still at home, we built her a "deluxe" loft for her bedroom at home. It has book shelves built in and a desk underneath. Her room is very small and this gave her so much more space.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

That's too cute! My daughter's have tickets to see the Spice Girls in Detroit in February. They are trying to design tees too.

Hey there Audrey! I'm another Michigander "newbie." Since I found Craftsters, I've been addicted and need my fix everyday, sometimes, several times a day. While you ARE a highschool student....I have a daughter IN highschool. And, yay  to Girls Scouts! I was a leader for many years!
