The Christensen's slice of family life in a rural small Iowa Town
Welcome to our Family blog. We are currently living in Iowa Falls, IA.
We hope that our everyday things will brighten your day. It is my hope that this blog will be a way to communicate to our family and friends. I also hope that once we get more free time I can communicate fun things going on in our world, new recipes and crafty things I have done as Chloe will allow me too.
Chloe is our little skinny mini! I never thought I would say that but she is now just under 18lb (she didn't even gain a pound over the last 3 months! and she is 30 inches long... The doc is not to worried about her... I need to give her more butter and milk and cheese. ummm a butter diet.
So I finished my first ever sewing project with a pattern and everything went well, ok well might be an understatement, I learned a lot of things, firstly measure twice and cut once, how to replace a needle, how to put in a zipper and read the directions untill you can almost memorize them... I also found that youtube can teach you just about anything you need to know (thanks youtube and those that submitted sewing tutorials) with all that new found knowledge, this was a cutest thing I have created for me! For me this was so fun! I felt so impowered buy knowing that I could make something that I had all the creative power. It was so fun to pick out fabric that worked well with eachother, and then preparing the fabric was so fun! I loved how the pinks look it makes me smile and I know that, this is my first real sewing project, nothing is perfect, nope not even the easy parts like the handles but I will purse this purse around with a smile knowing that I did all by my self!
