Family Photo Shoot

The last couple months have been really crazy for me. I have been sewing non-stop, and blogging very little. It seems like I get halfway through a project, and think of 8 more awesome things to make. I think I just need to learn to relax a bit.

However, in the midst of all my crafting I finally made something for me. I spent several hours on making clothing for my daughter and I for our family photo shoot. My poor husband only got a scarf, it was all I could muster up for him.
Our great friend took several pictures in downtown Houston for us. We were going for a more urban fun feel, and I think she did great. Getting pictures taken is always hard for me because I am either too hard on myself, or I love way too many of them and can't decide. That was the case here, I am including several of my favorites because I just couldn't pick one to feature here on my blog. I need to learn how to make a collage or something.

This jacket has to be my favorite of all the items I sewed . It was not too hard, and turned out super cute. I think I will be making one in several colors because they are just so fun. Maybe I will put one up for a giveaway sometime. Definitely not until the new year. I need some relaxing vacation time.

Also I would like to come up with a tutorial of some sort, so if you have any suggestions I am open to your comments.

Well, I hope all of you enjoy your Christmas holiday. It is always so fun this time of year. I love creating traditions, and just enjoying the spirit of Christmas.

Have a safe and happy holiday.
