Unusual Adventures

2014 is fast coming to an end I thought as I sat down this afternoon. I had some serious thinking to do. A single idea kept interrupting my line of thought. I shake it off but it kept struggling to come out. I discover I have a lot to be grateful for. So, to show my gratitude, I dug out my ipad ready to do some serious Thank You design.

Then I stumbled upon RedStamp. Now this is an app that thinks for you and in thinking for you-your hand starts twitching. That's exactly what happened to me. And I was able to come out with this great design. My favourite design is the one I made for my Sunday School Children. It absolutely spoke to me and my Younger Teens were all ecstatic that I did this.

Here you have it, isn't it wonderful?!
Thanks for your confidence .
Until later.

A Wedding Inspiration

My wonderful friend Ekaite got married on the 18th of October, 2014. She is a dear friend and our friendship is thirteen years and still counting. So on her wedding day, I took it upon myself to look not only good but smashing while retaining a level of decency.

For this to happen, I had to go through my fabric stash and see what it has in store for me to use. Lucky for me, I found the perfect fabric and out of it came this beautiful piece I have on. 

The wedding was beautiful and the dress came out looking way nicer than what I had imagined. 
For my plus one to this wedding, I invited my little friend Temilolu Fabayo and equally took it upon myself to sew something nice and girly for her. 

What do you think? Yeah I know- lovely! My sentiments exactly. 

Here are two more picture from the day:

It's always good to share good news and lovely pictures of days you are totally grateful for. I am grateful to experience this day with my friend. And I will be sharing some of my pictures with her soon.

I hope you enjoy my sewing efforts : )

Thank you.

Button It Up

I love pretty things and buttons happen to be one of the pretty things I love. The art of using buttons in many ways is inspiring. Crafters all over outdo themselves day in day out to create something unique they could wear or sell. 

Here are a couple of Buttons ideas I find enlightening.

My Topsy Turvy Cakecacious Experience

After all said and done, you move on to find new and greener pastures. You engage your mind in productive experiences and pray that it all works out for the best. I love cakes but over the years, I have done pretty much nothing about it. But today, I will. This does not mean I will bake a cake- nah, it simply implies that I will be sharing a couple of pictures on cakes I found interesting enough to eat today. Yeah I know, I've got a sweet tooth.

 My InsPinteresion springs on this lovely Topsy Turvy Cakes. The cakes I selected here simply looks ravishing enough for me to dive in and find bliss ;).  I will let y'all decide if the cakes are good enough to it.

N.B: all pictures are gotten through some lovely pincers @ Pinterest who choose to bless me everyday with their ingenuity. To see more, you can view it @ Cakes I Love here 


Enjoy the rest of your day and stay blessed.

Pretty Spring dress

I know its cold and all that in some part of the world, but here in Nigeria- it is so hot, you just have to keep the air conditioner on at all times and have showers all day. This is a lovely tutorial and I had just come across it. I couldn't stop by and do nothing with it. So I made up my mind to share it with you all pending when I get my groove back. The link to making this pretty dress is found just below  at Make it and Love it and I am sure you would have as much fun as I will have making one of this. Interestingly, I think I will adapt the style to fit me and so I should be strutting me for all to see.

Found the link to this lovely tutorial Here.
Make one of this today and put a smile on your little girls face
Have fun and stay blessed.

"This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club but the opinions expressed are my own." 


Most times adults while sipping a glass of lemonade wonder if things would have been a little less difficult, a little more comfortable or simply just better if they had listened to their mothers and obeyed the rules in the house. I am a member of the club too! breaking the rules seems to be a favorite hobby of mine.  You Have No Idea is a perfect book for such reflections. I remember growing up and wishing I would one day become a Vanessa Williams in my own corner of the world. Little did I know what the price of stardom could be. Reading the book gives you the feeling you are actually watching a movie like Pride and Prejudice. The fluidity of language is compelling. The arrangement of plot is addictive-all these come together to make it a larger than life book to read. You simply get the popcorn and soda effect.

You HAve No Idea is more than a book. Its a guide. Tips from mother to daughter and daughter to mother. Reflections on 'Ifs', 'Whys' and 'How'. Reflections on how the experience in a person life can help build and shape one for future challenges. Reflections on how disobedience could almost ruin a lifelong work. Reflections on disaster management skills. Reflections on the essence of having a good family background and love. The bound of love between parents and their children is simply magnetic.  Reading it once does not do justice to it. You simply have to reread it. Vanessa Williams and Helen Williams bares it all for the public to read, identify with and learn. 

This wholesome and soulful book is all about tipping you on how to be a better you. You simply leave with a feeling that you have just acquired the perfect recipe for baking your daughters favorites cupcakes. You really have no idea about Vanessa Williams until you read You Have No Idea.

Happy reading. Bon chance!
