What would YOU like me to make??

I love blogging.  And I really love making the projects for this whole blogging thing.  The best part of it, is that whatever I make changes every single time.  It’s new, refreshing, and a brand new challenge each time.  However, you sweet readers have to look at whatever I’m in the mood to make.  And what I decide to make depends on where we’re living, what activities my kids are in, what new thing I need for my bedroom/kitchen/office, etc.  I’m all over the place sometimes.  Ha! 


But sometimes a few of you are in the middle of a project and need help or have a really great project idea that you’d like to see me tackle……so you send me an email.  But I’m not always able to tackle every single project request.  So, just like we did last year, how about we vote on another highly requested project idea……..and let me see if I can attempt it.  (No promises!  I’m not Wonder Woman!)  Last year, the winner was Fabric Storage Boxes.  That was really fun for me to figure out and write up a tutorial for.  I hope it was useful for some of you.





A year has passed and interests have changed.  So let’s chat again about what types of things you’d like to see explained or a project that you’d really like to seen executed, start to finish. 


Maybe you have seen something on TV, or at the store, online, or on your neighbor (haha!)………that you’d really like to figure out and make.  It could be clothing, an accessory, a home decoration, a…..something.  Anything.  I’m almost completely willing to try something new (unless it requires that I buy 103 yards of silk dupioni fabric…..or something).  So give me some of your ideas.


Need a little jump start to get you thinking??



Are you dying to make a new skirt?

Okay, I’m sure there’s a whole slew of other things as well.  And that’s why I’m asking YOU.  I think it’ll be fun to do this more often…….just so I can see what the majority of you are trying/wanting to create. (Even though I’ll still make my own projects in between.)  And then I’ll try my very best to re-create it (or simplify it for all of us to try and create).  Sound fun?


If you’d like to chime in, leave a comment with something that you’d really like to make. Then, I’ll read through everything and pick out a list of 8-10 things that are either really popular requests or things that I think most of you would enjoy. 

(And of course, something that I think I could figure out.)



And then, I will create a poll and let you all vote on your favorite thing from the shortened list……and then I’ll make it.


How does that sound?



So start thinking and… 

  • Include a link of something you have seen, in your comment below.
  • Email me a picture if you need to ( 
  • Or, you can just describe it really well in a comment……and I can try and figure it out.
  •  If you really like someone else’s idea, just “reply” to their comment so I can keep that idea all grouped together.


Have at it.  And let’s see what you all are itching to make! :)


We’ll talk soon!
