Makin' a Messy introduction

Good afternoon friends!

This is my VERY FIRST BLOGGG! Ahhh!
I want to introduce myself a bit and let you know what I've been up to.
I graduated December 2011 with a Bachelors in Business Administration and minor in Biblical Studies from Lee University in Cleveland, TN.
I moved home to MN
and have been looking for the right job since.
While on the job hunt, I moved into my parents basement and have completely taken over with my MESS!
The basement living room has become my craft room with a sewing machine, iron, ironing board and multiple craft bins.

Allow me to introduce you

brother, sister, me, sister, brother (in order to conceal everyones identity:] )

Papa bear and mama bear at graduation
Brother and I at the Valentines Day 5K rocking our shirts!
Brother & I at our friends wedding in June

I love being creative!
I looooove drinking coffee
  and am working on opening a coffee shop in the near future
but most importantly, I love Jesus with my whole heart and life.

I am OBSESSED with Pinterest and catching myself constantly saying, "I can do that!",
I do seem to be accident prone,

my latest mishap ... a 1 inch needle in the heel

and recently discovered "refashioning"
I drug my friend, Alyssa, to Good Will with me (I think its worth noting that its her FIRST time in a second hand store) and we chose this lovely little number for $4.00. She thought I was crazy.

Cute right?! I loved the buttons and pattern.
It was a Saturday night and I could not find anything in my closet to wear... so I pulled the old dress out. This is what I came up with!

It was so easy and SOOO much fun! So I decided to give it another go around...

NEXT TIME Ill post the step by step process!

So that is what my blog will be about
I hope you stop by often
get inspired
and enjoy

God bless!

with love, Abby


  1. Hi,

    Do you have step by step instructions for the black dress with the multi color flowers?


    1. Hi Tiff,

      Unfortunately, I do not have a step-by-step for this dress BUT the bottom was done just like the Easy DIY Low-to-high skirt. As far as the top goes, I chopped off the sleeves and neck, folded in under about an inch and put in elastic. It was really simple. I hope that helps!!

      Thank you,

    2. Hi,

      Thanks for the response. I'll check out the instructions for the bottom. Thanks again!
