У Сары Тайо очень творческое мышление, и чем больше просматриваешь ее коллекции собственноручно перешитой одежды, тем больше завидуешь этому чудесному свойству..
Right after this photo was taken, someone let out some gas, which the camera captured our reaction, swipe left to see it. I won’t tell you who it was, I would never bring dishonor to my family member like that, especially someone twice as big as me. Nope, never, just call me Mulan already! . . I love making new friends on here, hello! Thank you so much for following along, it means so much to me! Recently I was featured on Little Things & Tip Hero(they have 10-20 million FB followers) among numerous other sites but none excited me as much as when I just found out by my sweet friend @allhalemama that @tamrajudge posted about me on her FP page and said «She’s really good at this!» My mouth went , she’s my favorite Real Housewife! . . People.com will do a segment on me this week, I’ll keep you updated on the time, I’m just so taken aback & humbled by all the response. Last Thurs. when my video was due but once again, I had to put my kids schedule first over mine, I got angry at God.I yelled out loud, «Really? My needs are met ONLY IF everyone else’s needs and wants are met first! I’m so tired of trying to do this & then being so angry & resenting my husband & motherhood every Thurs!» Then I heard a voice inside my head, «I will make it so that it’s as if you’re putting your sewing as your highest priority. Every time you have to sacrifice your career for your family, I will make it so that your success will be as if you were putting your career first.» . . So this past week, my video wasn’t published on Thurs., it was published on Friday evening. But I didn’t stress about it. And look at all the success God has shown me already, he never breaks his promise. I am so humbled and grateful. Every time we sacrifice our wants & needs for others, God blesses us with what we just sacrificed plus more by a 100 fold. I’ll share more on that epiphany I had this coming week. Hope you’re having a great Sunday!❤️ ___________________________________________________________ Link to dress in bio.

Часто пытаюсь найти что-нибудь стоящее в комиссионном магазине. Но видимо, у меня недостаточно творческий глаз, чтобы разглядеть в гигантском безликом платье шикарный джинсовый комбинезон… Перебирание бесконечных груд одежды кажется чем-то сродни просеиванию породы в поисках крупиц золота, которых там может вовсе не бытью
This magenta dress won your vote for the next item to refashion so here it is! For a 8-minute full tutorial including tips on refashioning, other design ideas that came to mind for this dress, and me being a big dork in the bloopers, link is in bio. Thank you to everyone that voted! . Today was a crazy day, I woke up this morning to a DM from one of my followers(thank you Lexie!) telling me she saw me featured on Dailymail(hello and welcome if you came from there!), but they never linked to my sites nor credited my photo(they later credited my photo in a tiny watermark but still never linking to any of my sites), then an associate producer for People.com contacted me for permission to do a 90 second segment of my refashions on their daily morning show! This is all because of your love and support, so thank you so much, it means so much to me. #memademay #memademay17
I started my YouTube channel exactly 3 months ago and made 10 episodes of Refashion Revision, a show where I take outdated clothes and turn it into new. Out of the 10 episodes, this is my favorite! I turned a size small women’s coat into a dress/coat for my daughter. The bow is a detachable clip so it can be worn in her hair(she’s obsessed with bows and wears it daily) or on her waist. Which episode is your favorite? Link in bio for all my Refashion Revision series!

Two days ago at an Easter egg hunt for 1-5 yr. olds, my son was running towards a giant golden egg when a mom ran and snatched it away before any kids had a chance. And she wasn’t the only mom running towards the golden egg! . . Here’s our family rule at Easter egg hunts: 1. When we go to these hunts and I see that there are lots of kids and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of eggs, I give my children the maximum number of eggs they can pick up. Usually 10 I say. Once they pick up 10, I scope out the situation and if there are still plenty of eggs, I give them the go. 2. Whether I’ve already given them a limit or not, I walk with them and when I see that they got enough eggs(enough as in enough to go around for all the other kids), I tell them to stop, that they got enough eggs and let’s let the other kids get them, especially the younger ones whom are slower at running. 3. After the hunt is over, we walk around and try to find the kids whom are crying. Then my kids all share their eggs with the crying kids. We let the kids pick out the eggs themselves from the baskets instead of us grabbing the eggs and throwing it in their baskets, we think that makes it more fun for the other kids. We don’t say how many they can take, they are free to grab the number that makes them happy. . . Read my full letter on the blog || link in bio. Do Easter egg hunts give anyone else a little bit of anxiety because of some parents?
You voted for me to refashion this coat from my Refashion Vision episode #1 & I delivered! Many of you have said this has been your favorite from my YouTube episodes so far, how about you? Tune in to vote again tomorrow where you get to see how my «refashion brain» works as I share with you how I’d refashion each item I picked out, on the spot. I found some really good ones too!

Happy Halloween from Misti, Evee, Togepi, & Ash, the Pokémon team! I made my son's costume while @jaystory9 made his and our girls, using super glue! . . Today right when we got to my son's preschool Halloween party, I heard a bad news. As I was about to get an anxiety attack & wanted to cry, my son spilled popcorn I just bought, all over the floor. "Aiden, I told you to sit down and eat! If only you had listened." I got irritated at him(he spilled a full cup of milk on our kitchen carpet & took out all the stuffing from a bag earlier) & felt my anxiety getting worse. I had to take a few deep breaths while my son picked up every popcorn into his bag, then he cried into my arms when I didn't let him eat the dirty popcorn. . . Why do I get so overwhelmed & irritated at my kids? They have the ability to make me feel this anger & annoyance that I've never felt before. As I thought about it, it hit me why. It's because when I'm down & I'm in need of someone to vent to & make me feel better, I'm instead taking care of my kids and making them feel better. I'm running on empty and I don't have any to give, but being a mother requires me to keep going, without an option for a rest stop. It doesn't mean I'm a bad person or a bad mom, it means I'm human. It's completely normal to feel anger or annoyance towards our kids. We all feel it. You're not alone. . . As I prayed to know how to control this anger/annoyance, I had a thought, "Put yourself in your child's shoes and see the world through his eyes. You will understand that he's still brand new to this vast world he doesn't know much about but he's desperately fighting, giving his absolute best, determined to navigate through and thrive. Do you live as passionately & give it your all?" So when I pause & put myself in his, I immediately feel empathy for this little spirit living, making messes, spills & tantrums along the way. But these are no mistakes, it's part of his learning process, each with a purpose and a lesson to learn. Who am I to scold him or get mad when these are part of being a child, each spills & messes a reason? So be free and be a child, my son. I'll be here to guide you & help pick up your spills.
I kind of miss posting #tyausunday, should I bring it back? And see the rose gold sequin dress I lengthened?😉 . I watched a short film called LIFT, a story about a mother & a wife who was diagnosed w/ multiple sclerosis. Her husband divorced her & when it became too much for her young sons, the members in her congregation began to take turns to help every night; taking her slippers off, two guys lifting her off her wheelchair to her bed, relocating her many times until she found a comfortable position, tucking her in and then chatting with her since she «could talk their ears off.» Realizing that this was a service to be held until Kathy died, the men thought of it as a huge burden, trying to come up with a solution so they could stop. . . Then one man had a change of heart & started looking at it from a different perspective. To look inward and change himself to be where he needed to be spiritually so it would no longer be a burden for him, but a privilege, a blessing. . . I loved this video because it reaffirmed what I’ve learned from being a mother & taking care of my aging parents. At times when I felt burnt out & overwhelmed, I thought of them as a burden. I’d sigh & complain in my head of how so many people need my help all the time & I was just so tired of helping, with no room for air to breathe. Then I had a thought. Every time I sacrificed my wants for someone else’s needs, God blesses me so much more than what I just sacrificed. So if I sacrificed 2 hours of my free time to take my parents out to our weekly lunches, or to help my kids with something instead, God will give me so much more than the 2 hours I sacrificed. I’ve sacrificed going back to school, hardly ever sewing(until now that my kids are older and in school), declined a book offer, etc. & sometimes I’d get bitter about all the things I’ve sacrificed & could have accomplished. But I know God has given me & will to continue to give me way more blessings than all the things I’ve sacrificed. . . So if you want true happiness & blessings, forget yourself & serve others. Mathew 16:25 «For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.»
