Cruisin' in Custom Style!

I am catching up some photos here.. so these are from November 2012.  We did a Disney cruise again and had the most wonderful time.  Highly reccommend Disney Cruise Line if you're looking for family-friendly fun that allows YOU to have a vacay too!

Custom Mickey and Minnie!  We had an AMAZING time aboard the Disney Fantasy and can't wait to go back!  These two cuties were thrilled to play dress-up the whole time we were there!  I had a blast making all the outfits too!

Some more Disney-inspired outfits:

Anchors Away!

I am excited for this!!:

Family Ever After....: Sew-vivor Season 2: AUDITIONS!

And sew it begins...

Hi! My name is Trina and I have NO idea what I'm doing writing a blog. For one thing, I'm a mom to a two-year old and a five-year old. 'Nuff said, right?  But there's more... I have a full-time job in the uber-boring corporate world, a side business creating and selling children's clothing, and a husband that is out on the road four days a week. I have no business trying to write and keep up with a blog.

Alas, here I am. My purest joy in life, besides my family, is sewing. I've been designing and sewing since I was eight. At first it was for my Cabbage Patch Kids, but that quickly evolved into skirts and dresses for myself as a teenager, and yes, even my prom dress! (She says as she shrinks in embarrassment!)  When I had my daughter, I found my passion for making children's clothes. What's not to love? They are colorful, easy and come together so fast! Instant gratification! So now I spend every waking free moment designing, creating, sewing. I have found an entire WORLD of sewing inspiration and education on the Internet. I am an avid follower of several logs all go which I would love to "button" here....just as soon as I learn how!

My foray into blogging has begun. I hope you'll check in with me now and then to see what new fashions hit the closet. And if I'm lucky and learn how to make this blog-thing work, maybe you'll see me on Sew-vivor 2! (The REAL reason I decided to start blogging!)

Today, life seams perfect!
