Inspiration: Father's Day Gifts

 Father's Day is coming and we have to be ready for it. Not only with breakfast in bed, day plans, but also a gift.

My 10 year old daughter is making a lot of preparations for that day including a handmade card, breakfast, washing his car, pampering him, and obviously asking me over and over, “what are we buying the guys (Dad and Grandpa)?”

The question is: What can we give my husband and my father that shows them how important and loved they are? The fact is that there is not the magical gift for all Dads, since all of them are different.
To begin my search for the perfect gift I asked myself a couple of questions just to make it easier for me to pick the right gifts and save some time.
What my your budget? 
What is your dad’s favorite activity? Does he have a hobby?


What is his job?     

What is his participation at home? Does he enjoy cooking or grilling for us?

Does he love to play a sport?     

    What does he do with his friends? Does he golf or bowl, watch games?

Does he enjoy dressing & accessorizing?



    Does he enjoy grooming? 

Personalize Shaving Bowl


What does he do around when resting at home?


Once I answered these questions I highlighted the answers that I know are his favorite things to do or enjoys the most. Then I was ready to surf those web pages and pick something!

Made By A Fabricista: Speaking My Truth

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black . My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black . She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race ”. My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes.

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order: This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first. I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern. The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.
