"To make a difference in someone's life you don't have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care enough and be there."

For today's Project Made 28 I wanted to share a wonderful event that I was so lucky to be apart of. I was invited to teach one of my projects at the Community Sewing Day on the Central Coast that raised money for Parkinson's Disease. It was such a well run and organized event for such a great cause.  The home cooked food was incredible, and the school hal...

"Happieness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give"

-Ben Carson


This homemade ice cream is so incredibly simple and only has three ingredients!!!! There is no equipment necessary, and you can make as much or as little as you need and freeze the rest. 


I am a huge sweets fan, and plain jane vanilla ice cream makes me feel like a kid again. With Flu season fast approaching, I thought this would be a great sweet treat to cheer up a sick friend. It feels good on the throat and honestl...

" If you can be anything, Be Kind."


 Currently, Adult coloring book pages are all the rage! They are all over pinterest and instagram, and I even Tula Pink has just released her own coloring book. I always find coloring, painting and doodling to be so relaxing and I thought this could be a great Idea to give to someone as a Random Act of Kindness.


There are times in our lives when we can be feeling a little low, and sometimes it's just that little reminder that there is a person out there...

"No act of Kindness,

no matter how small, is ever wasted."


I think that it is so very important for kids to get involved with Random Acts of Kindness. This is a fantastic way to teach them about the importance of giving and doing a selfless act for someone else with no expectations in return. This little DIY yoyo brooch or hair clip is perfect to make with children even as young as 6 years old. They would then be able to gift this to someone as a RAOK (adult supervised of course) or make a few o...

"Don't Give To Get, Give to Inspire Others to Give" 


 To kick things off for the very first project of Project Made 28, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite scrubs of all time!!! I love making this scrub 1. because it is so simple and 2. because it actually works. Now you probably don't need me to sit here and tell you all about the fabulous properties of Coconut Oil, but if you would like to read more about it click here. I actually put Coconut Oil in my coffee every day a...

This post isn't particularly sewing related, but I felt that many of you may be interested in something that is close to my heart, and was one of the most incredible days in my whole life!!!



Last Year was my 27th Birthday on May 27th. To be honest, I had been dreaming of this birthday since I was a little girl and truly believed that by age 27 I would have this whole "life" thing figured out. Well, I definitely don't have it all figured out, but I still knew this particular birthday would be r...
