Elle (as a chubby baby), Lauren and I at her volleyball game last year.
I've been lucky to have my sister Lauren live with me for the past month. Unfortunately, she leaves this week to go back to school. I keep trying to convince her to stay, but it's time for her to go back to her life as a volleyball player at Auburn University in Alabama and student studying fashion design. It has been so nice and fun to have her here with us. I'm pretty sure Elle is going to go into a deep depression when she's gone. Her Aunt Lauren has been her sidekick (or slave as my Dad says).
Lauren has a great talent for sewing. She can make just about anything and creates and designs patterns on her own. She's also very artistic. We've had a lot of fun coming up with ideas and creating them. To celebrate Lauren's last week with me, I'm featuring 4 of the projects we've created together on the blog this week:
Tuesday: 1/2 pleated skirt
Wednesday: diaper clutch
Thursday: tote bag
Friday: paper doll coloring book
Watch for tips and tricks, patterns, downloads and photos on each of the projects. In addition, I'm giving away one of each of the projects! Just leave a comment on this post and at the end of the week, I'll randomly select 4 winners. You don't want to miss out!
