Projects from the past week....

I have been really busy with the kiddos lately but, I have tried to squeeze in a few projects during naps and after bedtime. Here are a few things that I'm working on:

My hubby plays electric guitar on the worship team at our church and recently purchased a new amp and speaker cabinet. Unfortunately for me, they didn't come with covers!
He asked me to make him covers!! What???!!!
I am not that great with the sewing machine & I was a little worried!
I'm trying to teach myself but, I get a little frustrated with it.
I let him pick out the fabric and I went for it.....

They didn't turn out too bad.
They aren't perfect and are by no means fancy but, they do their job.

Anything for you Hunny! :)

Another project that I just finished are some letters for my sister & brother-in-law.
They just moved into their new house and I thought these would be a fun house warming gift!
(Yes, I do realize that the H is upside down in these pictures. Ooooops!)

I haven't given them to her yet so this is the only glimpse of the colors that you get! :)

Master Bedroom Redecorating Project Update:
(Wow! That was a mouth full!)

I purchased these pretty little peacocks on Etsy and they have found the perfect place to perch themselves! Right above my fireplace!
(Still need to finish applying those guys.)

And....look what else has found a home in my bedroom......
A new headboard!! Is it possible?? Do we actually have a grown up's bed in our room??
Just a little glimpse for now. I'll show more later...

That's it for now!
I have some new projects that I plan to start on soon.
Until then....
Have a Blessed Day!!


  1. Ashley I cannot even believe how crafty you are! I can only dream of being so talented in the sewing dept. Great job! I can't wait to see your finished product of your bedroom.

  2. You are so well rounded in terms of talent... can you be my neighbor?? I think you would inspire me. And I think you would be my own personal Etsy shop. I think I may be being selfish. ;)

    Be blessed!

  3. I love those letter, they are adorable!

  4. Love looking around your blog. Those peacocks are so cute! Thanks for following!
