Polka Dots and Pedis

Saw this fabric print on the other day…


There’s something about red and white polka dot fabric that makes me smile. It reminds me of two of my favorite childhood characters, Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty.

This past Saturday, I decided to use polka dots as inspiration for my pedicure.


I had been wanting to get a pedi since the day of Lauren’s arrival. In fact, I had planned on getting a pedi that day, but of course, I had much better things to take care of. 🙂

Special thanks to Ang (I hope that’s how her name is spelled) at Color Nail Salon at the Maui Mall. Loved her work and the great service!

*Slippers and slipper charm found at My Sister’s Closet, also at the Maui Mall!

New Fabrics!

Robert Kaufmann Fabric!!!

This collection is Robert Kaufmann’s, Pick A Bunch collection, by Nancy Mimms. I believe the yellow print is also from Robert Kaufmann, but in a different collection.

I ordered a layer cake and a jelly roll from Missouri Star Quilt Company a few weeks ago, and it arrived within days! They’re so awesome! The yellow print was from Sew Special, a fabric store here on Maui.

The collection features different prints in shades of blue, green, red, yellow, mauve, and purple.




I wasn’t sure what I would do with the fabric when I bought it. Call me an impulse buyer, but I loved what I saw and knew I could make something out of it. I love bright colors and retro prints. This collection was too cute to pass up. I’ll more than likely create another quilt, but my first objective is to create another diaper bag using the yellow print (in the first picture at the very top) as a the main part of the bag.

Here’s a canvas fabric that I bought over the weekend at Fabric Mart in Kahului….


Cute huh? Not sure what I’ll want to do with this, but I loved the colors and the design! If you’re ever on Maui, check out Fabric Mart on Dairy Road in Kahului. They have a large collection of Hawaiian and Asian prints at great prices.

That’s it for now! I think I’ll get started on my second diaper bag in a little while…Till next time…=)
