Black Bolero/Shrug and High-Waisted Pant Simplicity 1371

Hey Everyone!  I know some of you remember me posting this jacket on Facebook a couple of days ago.  Well here it is and I also made a pant to go with it..  LOL!
It's not a tutorial, sorry about that guys. My phone is acting up and it's about time to get a new one. Can you believe the phone won't charge? I'm actually sharing a battery with my husband, so if he's at work and I need to take pictures and my battery is dead. I'm stuck like chuck until he comes home.. 




First, I just want to say. I hope that this was alright for me to post this on my blog. I apologize if I have offend anyone and will take this down immediately. But this is one of my first You Tubers that I've ever followed. This beautiful and talented young woman taught me a whole alot about sewing her short time here on earth and still has a cult following, myself included. I can remember years ago "trying" to make the striped Shrug and Batwing dress, even thought about trying vegan c…

REVIEW BROADWAY OR BUST

Designers went to see the Broadway Show, Finding Neverland. My goodness, I haven't been to a Broadway show in a really long time. This episode really made me want to see a show.

Dollar Tree $7 DIY Cactus Globe Terrarium

Hey Everyone! Well today I have an easy $7 DIY for you. I was looking at Pinterest the other day a saw the cutest cactus plants. Well I'm not a flower or cactus girl, I literally kill every plant I come in contact with. You can say I have a "Black Thumb", LOL!  No Seriously.
I'm either in Walmart, Target or the Dollar Tree and came across these faux cacti, well you already know my mind started churning.
