Thanks again for a great party! Oh, I was having a little problem with my Simply Creative Blog Party button. If anyone added this button to their blog party lists, go ahead and replace it with the new link code. Thanks!!

Now, on to Simply Creative Blog Party #5

With a toddler who needs to nap and a baby who recognizes me as the "milk maker," I can't stay on the beach all day...believe me when I say, this isn't that disappointing- my skin and the sun don't alay get along! So, I've been spending a lot of time at the ol' beach house.

I kinda knew I would be at the house a lot, so I brought my little craft bin full of a few things I'd put off for too long. One of those things was a little black top.

I've had this shirt since 2005, when I bought it while pregnant with Abby. I loved this shirt! This skirt was amazing. It was soft, stretchy and so flattering at a very unflattering time. Even better than that, it came in handy after I gave birth, when my body looked something like a pasty deflated beach ball.

Well once again I find myself looking like an albino deflated orb, but my handy dandy stretched-out-skin-hiding-shirt was the worse for wear. Sniff sniff... tears....Actually it wasn't so bad. To be honest, it was very fixable! Yay!
Don't ask me how I got these little holes in this shirt, but I think I may have acidic breast milk. It's the only way I can explain it!

It was just a matter of covering these unsightly holes with something. Thank GOD for DIYers and their wonderful ideas! Using some DIY jersey fabric flowers and little pearl beads, I was able to cover the tiny holes with lovely flowers.

My black shirt was back in business. Which is great news, because I'm not shedding this belly anytime soon. I really love comfort food!

What have you created this week? Link up yo!


  1. Angela,
    I am your newest follower & friend! Thanks for the invite. I look forward to reading your blog more. How did you get the black border around your inlinkz entries? I like that look. Thanks for hosting! Oh and you look great for having a toddler & a baby! I have some of my own & have a love for comfort foods/sweets that's not helping me either lol.

  2. Hey Angela,

    Reading your profile, I really thought I had written that myself, everything, except living in a 1800 house that is. Oh and I only have 3 kiddos, but that is WAY enough for me now, sheeshhh. Anyway, I love what your saying about trying to simplify your life, I am on that mission too.

    I'd love to keep in touch, and exchange ideas. i'm so excited I found your blog tonight, YAY.

    Hey girl, let me know if you'd be interested in doing a guest post tutorial on my blog, I'd really LOVE to have you over.

    I grabbed your party button, added it to my party page, and linked up several posts from both my blogs. Hope you don't mind.

    Thanks for hosting!!

    Stop by anytime to say hello!!!
    Hugs, Bella :)
