School Now In Session

Corbin is now onto his second week of home school and we happened to have received our first Geo package from Georgia. We opened up the box this morning to discover what was inside. There was a shirt that had been dyed with real Georgia dirt, homemade hot sauce, tons of awesome brochures about the […]


School Photos

I remember when my mom would take a photo of my brother and I on our first day of school and I wanted to do the same for my boys. Before we started our first day of kindergarten I took them outside to take a few photos to remember the day. These are precious memories […]


Sulpher Nature Center

The boys and I enjoyed a fun day out. We went to the Sulpher Nature Center (free admission) and looked at some animals and walked a trail, stopped at San Felipe park to check it out before heading over to the Hayward library and couldn’t resist stopping at Casper’s hotdogs for lunch.


Coffee Cozy

Why try one when you can go crazy and try a whole bunch. Ha! And don’t think this is it…I have a bunch of girl prints too. I think I will have to do a giveaway just to get rid of some of these….I know…That’s Sew Julia!

I created this nautical birthday set over the weekend for a client. The madras patch fabric by Michael Miller is a great print for boys and very Pottery Barn Kids if you as me. That’s Sew Julia

Target, Dollar Tree and Walmart are just a few great resources I’ve taken advantage of […]


Coffee Cozy

Back in January my father in law took me to a local coffee shop and showed me they had handmade coffee cozies and told me I should start making them. I put it in my memory bank until last night. I finally made my first coffee cozy! This cozy is sporting a bright superhero fabric.


Items In Action – Shabby Chic Birthday Set

A new friend from church is a photographer and wanted to try her hand at a cake smash session and asked if I could help her create the perfect look. She wanted a shabby chic/vintage look. Here are the items I created for her – Sweet floral birthday hat, double sided banner (other side is […]
