Birthday Bash Cont. ~ 30 Before 30

on April 30, 2013

If you’re just showing up today, don’t forget to enter my Birthday Bash giveaway!!

I know you’re just DYING to know whether I completed my 30 sewing projects before I turn 30 challenge. And guess what?!!! I DID!!! I’m Soooooo excited about it! When I originally came up with the idea I had a completely different list of what I wanted to sew. I warned you that my list would change. I mean, let’s face it, I’m a woman and I like to change my mind! 🙂 This was the first post I wrote up about the challenge and I kept you updated every so often on how I was doing. It has been a lot of fun for me, but honestly, it has also been stressful. I felt like I needed to accomplish 30 different sewing projects for it to really mean something, but once it got down to the wire, I just didn’t have the time to create 30 different projects!!

I am really proud of myself for doing this. And really, I have done SO many more than just 30 sewing projects! I have made multiples of many of the projects and actually some of them I counted more than once. I’m excited to say that last week alone I made 6 pillowcase dresses and 5 shorts for the boys and girls in Uganda. I’m going to make a bunch more shorts in the coming weeks and probably more dresses as well! If you’re interested in helping out with this cause you can find out more information on Project Yesu’s website or on their facebook page.

    Guys, don’t believe her, she’s lying to you! She didn’t even sew all of that! Not even close! Seriously—all she really did was 30 frogs.

    There are so many frogs in the house…so. many. frogs. It’s like a froggy tsunami, every day.

    I seriously cannot believe you finished all of that. Amazing.

I LOVE to hear from you!
