Ivory Persephone Shorts – perfect for postpartum!

I’m excited to show off something new today, but I’ll be honest that this won’t be an excitingly new piece… In the fall of 2020, I sewed up a pair of Persephone Pants out of some really great ivory colored denim I’d purchased from Blackbird Fabrics.

DIY Halloween Costume – Pumpkin Princess and her Pumpkin Patch

My brother-in-law will finally get married, after many COVID-related delays. My baby girl will turn THREE years old! And we will celebrate Halloween… Maybe in a more typical fashion than last year? Remains to be seen. I normally stay VERY up to date on posting my makes here on the blog, but as I’ve had some time to look through photos while I’ve been on maternity leave, I’ve realized that I missed a couple over the past year! Luckily, this one is just as relevant this year as it would’ve been last year, especially if you are looking for a fun (and simple!) family Halloween costume to DIY this month!
