Hey y’all! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Alida, and this is my little corner of the internet. For some back story (my sob story, we all have one), please see this post. I used to include it on my about me page because it’s a very important part of me, but I have decided that this page needs to be about the wonderful life I’m living right now!
I am a Southern girl. I love create. My soul feels complete when I’m sewing. When my mother-in-law gave me my first sewing machine 6 years ago I never imagined that I could sew a simple a-line jumper, let alone a closet full of clothes for my kids. So if you’re just starting out, don’t give up! Each new skill you learn will open new doors to your creativity! My goal for this blog is to chronicle my best work, to show you how to make pretty things, and most of all to inspire.
Now, for further introductions:
I used to refer to him as Mr. Med School on this blog, but he has since graduated to Dr. Hubby. He is a humanitarian, outdoorsman, music lover and all around great guy. He’s crafty too, although he doesn’t like to admit it! He does a lot of behind-the-scenes tech support and set building for the blog. He made this coffee table, and no he won’t make you one, no matter how many times you ask ;-).
My four kids are the best team. Each member contributes inspiration, outfit styling advice, comic relief, and they let me pay them in candy. This blog could not exist without them!
