Gotitas del Saber: Math edition

Ok, this might sound so dumb, but I must confess...I'm attempting a baby dress and on the instructions it said to leave 3/8 " seam allowance, and I was like, what? So, I googled it, and came up with this trusty image..if you have no problems figuring out how much 3/8" is, I humbly curtsey! If you are like me, and a ruler can get the best of you, Ahoy there my challenged friends, you are not alone...

Sharing is caring!

Mucho love,

A little upcycle action


So, the DIM upcycled skirt is done!!! I'm so happy, proud, excited and pumped!!! Someone, tranquilize me!!! STAT. This whole "learning to sew" stage of my life has been pretty cool I must confess. There have been a couple of ups and downs, but the good things in life usually involve some sort of roller coaster, right?

As I'm writing this, I'm laying on my bed wondering what else God has in store for me. I question Him daily..isn't that sad? I actually doubt He'll make good on His promises..I mean, He is God after all..He can't contradict Himself..but I realize I have a lot of room to grow..but I must be willing to.

Anyways, here's the finished product!! :) I'll try to do a little photoshoot with the skirt!! But I was so excited to post this, that I couldn't wait till tomorrow!!! Oh! I got the idea to make this skirt from this lovely tutorial. I'm hoping to actually make a skirt like the one she makes, but I got inspired to do my own little version of it! I added an elastic at the waist too! :) You'll get the full gist of it when I upload a few pics of me wearing it!

Upcycled Black Knit Skirt
Ay!!! I almost forgot!! :) I don't know about you, but I love Barbies. When I was younger I was all about them!! I used to love changing their clothes and making a mess of their hair, and marrying them to the Kens! Ah! to be a kid! Anywho, I found this wonderful, splendid tutorial through, you guessed it, Pinterest. I made some Barbie skirt y'all! And I am full on loving them! You have got to check out her blog! It's soooo awesome!!!

Mucho love,

Little Inventions


I'm writing this on my way to the mountains, where my family has a house that overlooks the beach and thousands of mountains, it seems. Why am i telling you this? Because the car is hitting 45 and I might mess up my grammar. I don't want to worry you. Not that you would be worried, just ashamed. 

Anyways, I've feeling adventerous and I've been Pinteresting like crazy. I found this tutorial on making an infinity scarf. I had an old dress I didn't want anymore and decided to give it a shot. However, I didn't have enough fabric to do it, so I settled for making a cowl scarf using a tutorial I found on Pinterest! It actually turned out pretty good! It was a DIM (do it myself)/ecofriendly/experiment :) 

I'll be posting a skirt DIM experiment that's currently underway. It's an upcycle of two old knit fabric shirts. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Mucho love,

A month later...

So, apparently I'm not the world's greatest blogger. I love writing, but when I get frustrated I pull back a bit, and I guess that is what I did for the last month. However, time is of the essence, and since I really do enjoy blogging and writing in this journal/diary#whatsthedifference, I will share with you, whoever's reading, a few pictures of what happened during this past month...drumroll, please...

If you're wondering about the hair, it's basically a triumph for me to have cut it that short! :) and, I'm lovin' it! But not like McDonald's, because that food kills...#foodforthought

Finally, a little bit of baking, a little bit o' sewing...

Mucho love,
