Well it's getting to the end of August and school is not that far away. I was looking at the pictures I've taken this summer and thought I might share some with you. Photography is one of my great loves next to my family, so I take a ton of pictures. Ever since I got my new camera last year I have had so much fun. Here are a few of my favorites so far this summer.....

I don't know about your yard, but the black eyed susans are exploding in mine!

No, this isn't my backyard. These are barns at Caumset Park in Huntington, NY. I thought they were very interesting.

My children acting silly.

We have a local Fireman's fair every year in July. I had a lot of fun taking pictures there. Here's the ferris wheel.

If you can believe it that's my daughter on the left in this motion shot.

The kids at the beach.

A beautiful sunset I caught on the way home from the beach that night.

Hope your summer has been wonderful. Enjoy the last few bits of it. I know I will.

Have a great day!

Inspiration Results

Well, I got cracking and actually made some things from that batch of fabric I received last month. Made this pretty backpack and it sold on Etsy in a flash. Love the peacock/sea glass fabric from Amy butler.The I created this cute little wallet as a gift for one of my best customers. She picked the fabric - another Amy Butler fan- Soul Blossoms Disco Tangerine- and I made her a backpack and the wallet. I'm going to do a tutorial for this wallet soon. I've made a few and this one is my favorite. It has three pockets inside for your cards and bills and a key ring. I've wanted to do a tutorial for some time now but I always think of it after I have created the item.
Love this backpack. My customer has the best taste in fabric. She got me inspired to get sewing again. Thanks, Liza.
Look for that tutorial soon. I'm a little slow with my posts these days.

Have a great day!
