Because Sometimes I'm a Fun Mom

While I was offered compensation for trying out Sands Alive! all opinions here are mine.  Spoiler Alert: I really am this crazy about messy activities, hehe.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me use #sometimesimafunmom, but for the most part I feel like things can get pretty bland around our house.  Bean and I get into a routine of reading, puzzles, listening to music, and the occasional lego/train adventure, mostly because we enjoy it, but also because I'm not a big fan of making a mess.

Secret Garden Dress Turned Top

The Secret Garden Dress is pattern collaboration between E+M Patterns and Sprouting Jube Jube and the result is just lovely.  When I first saw it out in blogland I fell in love with the gorgeous back.  The bow detail is so lovely, but the v-shape above it makes it all come together so perfectly.

The Butterfly Sling Purse - SSW

It's another Selfish Sewing Week and I'm super excited about this one.  I've been sewing SO MUCH for Bean's fall wardrobe that it'll be fun to take a break and sew for myself.  Whether you call it selfish sewing or self sewing or whatever, take some time this week to sew yourself something pretty!
