One of the very first blogs I started to follow was This Mama Makes Stuff. Carrie is an amazing person that has a kind of balance to her life that I can't even fathom accomplishing. Not only is she amazingly talented at creating things, but she also runs marathons (real ones--you know, like 26 miles!), gives her time at her children's school, is actively involved at church and is teaching her young children how to serve others. I'll just bet that her house is always spotless and she cooks gourmet meals, too. Maybe she should change her blog title to read,
"This Super Mama Makes Stuff."
And let me tell you, the day her picture showed up on my followers list, I about peed my pants. Let's just hope she never realizes that compared to her, I really am not that inspiring. ;0)

let's get to the crafty part, shall we?
Carrie is the refashioning queen. One of my very favorite refashions she has done is this one:
A wedding dress to a blessing gown-- fabulous!
