New Mexico Conference Bags!


Thank you for making the bags for us to give out at our ladies conference on the Navajo Reservation of New Mexico. We stuff the bags with a notebook, pen, lavender soap, lotions, hair ties, bible verse magnets, and a few other goodies.  The first picture is what was in the bag.  The second is of them on the chairs in the conference

The ladies loved the bags and were very blessed.

Thank you so much

Photo Finish Friday

I have two prismatic candle holders on my dining room table. Every morning I am greeted with rainbows when the sun shines through them. It makes me so ridiculously happy!
Love these.

I adore this kind of art.

These are beautiful.


Cute DIY. Too early to think holidays?

Speaking of, these are on my Christmas list. Would be so great in my sewing room!

I'm heading up to Vail later today for the 50th birthday weekend of another tennis friend. We are going to go out to dinner, do some yoga, play some tennis and drink some wine. Heaven! I've never been to Vail so looking forward to the beautiful trip up and seeing the town. I hope you have some fun plans in store for the weekend. Have a great one! Teresa

Workday Wednesday

What's going on in your world? It's been cray cray around here since school started. Kids are back in the rhythm but I'm still trying to keep up! We are making 400 bags for a Community Education conference in MN in the beginning of October, keeping us very busy. I have been sewing my little heart out. We have 220 completed and I'm expecting the rest to come in this weekend. Sara K from Knoxville (bless her heart) is sending 50 so we only have 130 more to go!
Dianne, my tennis friend, turned 50 recently and I made her this fun pouch. It has tennis on the front…
 And yoga on the back as she is also a yoga instructor. :) It turned out so cute.
 I cranked out a bunch of snack bags for back to school. Now I just need to add them to my etsy shop!
This big guy was j. chillin' in my neighbors yard. I took this from my deck, wouldn't want to get close to him!
And, Little Girl went to homecoming last weekend. Cute dress, no? Scored it on my neighborhood facebook page for $5!! She loved it, and it was the perfect fit and color on her. I added the straps so she wouldn't be pulling it up all night. She had a great time.
I've procrastinated enough. I need to get back to the grind (sewing machines) and get some more done. I hope you are having a fantastic week. XOXO--Teresa

Illinois Bag!

Hi Teresa, this wonderfully happy vintage bag will be traveling to CA to be one of my daughters grocery bags. She has one and loves it. So this will make her happy to have two.  
Thanks for sharing your bags with us all so we can go plastic free with all of our shopping.

Photo Finish Friday

My fav colors all in one photo. Blue blue blue sky…
Cute pin cushion!

Pretty DIY necklaces. I think the trick it to wear several at a time.


I love beach hunting, would love to find some of these!

These are gorgeous.

New words. Huh.

I'm off to a tennis lesson in just a bit here. Happy it is lesson season again and matches are over. I took a bit of a beating on the court this summer, but am more motivated than ever to work to get better. :) My ladies and I are in the midst of completing 350 bags for a conference in MN. 220 done so far! The rest should be finished next weekend. YAY! I hope you have an amazing and relaxing weekend. XOXO--Teresa
