~A Summer Dress~ :)

This is a dress I recently finished making! I used the Simplicity pattern number 4675. (The only alteration needed was to raise the neckline a couple inches.) The dress was lots of fun to make! :)
Here are a few other dresses we (Mom or I) have made from the same pattern. :) There are three different kinds of necklines you can do and you can make the skirt either pleated or gathered. Also, depending on what material you use, you can make the dress more formal or there's lots of room for creativity depending on what look you're after! :)

Grace and peace to you all!

~Birthday Fun!~ :)

Earlier this month we celebrated my dad's birthday! :)

Since one of Dad's favorite games to play is domino's, we decided to decorate the table with them, along with some other game items for a festive touch! ;) One of my younger brothers created a very colorful sign for our centerpiece. :)

After having a delicious dinner it was time for pictures and.....
.....wacky cake! :)
We then played a few rounds of domino's which was quite enjoyable! ;)

Hope you all have a very blessed day!

In Christ,

"But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy."
James 3:17
