From Wildwood, NJ to Back to School & Work

I needed to make time to post on my blog so everyone knows I am alive and well. I'm doing it from my iPhone so hopefully it comes out right!!

This was the family's 5th year back to Wildwood, NJ. We just can't get enough of this place and it seems to have become a tradition now. Every year we learn something new or see something new.

This year we ventured out more driving into new towns and going to new stores 😊 boy do I love to shop when I'm in another state! Lol!! I also take this trip to do both of my kids school shopping b/c we find different things than what we have in our home town, but also we get them so customized garments while we are there.

Hope you enjoy just a few of our summer vacation pics!!

My babies love the beach!! We were there every morning 3-4hrs!

I was enjoying myself too! Lots of R&R!!

I love taking group selfies more than just a selfie of me!

Took a 45min drive backwards to Atlantic City! No gambling tho!!

 My kids and my nephew on one of the cooler nights! All the red was not planned it just happened that way.

My nephew has the cutest little smile!!

We always make the mile(s) long walk to the Wildwoods sign just to get our "oh how you have grown over the years" picture.

I had to stop at the local Jo-Ann Fabrics to get 4yards of Eagles fleece!! Being an Eagles fan the best part of going to New Jersey b/c of all the Eagles merchandise!

Enjoying the weather!

Boardwalk Nights!!

And then off to the first day of school and me of course back work! I don't have a back to work selfie b/c I probably wouldn't look as happy as these two!! Even though I was excited to make back all the money I spent!! Until next year Wildwood 😘

Until Next Time✌️

DIY -- Hello Kitty Scrub Top -- OOTD

DIY - Hello Kitty Scrub Top What I Wore Today
 Fabric from Joann Fabrics I'm not sure if you can buy this particular print online, but I did see it in a few of their retail stores. 
I used Wrights Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape accent the pockets and around the top.
 If you haven't read my About Me page yet, I state that I work full-time in the medical field.  I don't have to wear scrubs all the time, but when I want to be comfortable it's my go to option!!  I was tired of seeing the same scrub tops I was wearing that day on other co-workers in the hospital and smiling at each other because we didn't know what else to say.

I felt like I was in People Magazine on the "Who Wore It Better" page.

So I decided to start making my own tops!!  This is the 2nd scrub top that I have ever made.  The first one I made ended up being a complete bust (My Failure) and I never took a pic of it.  I definitely learned for my mistakes (My Triumph) and came out with what I c…

Scrub - A - Dub Sunday!! DIY - Scrub Tops

DIY - Scrub Sunday!!

I buckled down and add four more scrub tops to my work wardrobe.  I did this really for two reasons.
1) I like how easy and fast it is for me at this moment, very calming and non-stressful sewing!
2) I enjoy the compliments I get from my co-worker for having original scrub tops!
If you have not read my Fabric Haul 2 post, please check it out.  There you will find a description of all the fabric I used for these scrub tops.

My son decided that he wanted to draw all over my pocket template.

It seemed easier for me to just cut all the fabric out and just sew everything at once.

The only thing that was time consuming on these scrubs was changing the thread to match the color of the bias tape being used.

The finished products!! So happy!! Can't wait to wear them.

DIY - Burda Style Pattern 7065

 DIY - Burda Style Pattern B7065 View A

I have to admit.  I was so nervous to start this project.  Everything always looks great on the pattern envelope.  When you finally get the guts to start and sometimes get to the finished product, you look at it like WTH!!  Then it either gets seam ripped apart, scraped, put on a hanger in the back of your closet or balled up on the floor in the back of your closet.

This is 2 yards of fabric purchased fromVogue Fabrics from Chicago, IL. This company was one of the vendors at the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo I attended this past April.  The fabric is part of theGalleria Knit Collection.

NOT THIS TIME!!  This is the first time that I have started, followed through and finished an actual printed pattern bought from a store.  I am very happy with how it came out. 

It was great to only have to use TWO pieces to construct this top.

I used washers from my local hardware store as pattern weights.  They are crochetednow.
