So, as some of you may know I am currently in college. I'll be starting my first day of classes tomorrow and I must say that I'm pretty excited. For most of my life I've been one of those weird kids that actually enjoys going to school, not just for the socializing, but the actual learning part:) It's the nerd inside me... SO I've been putting all of my thoughts and effort into gearing up for this semester. Because of that I've been neglecting other areas of my life, ie Pie N' the Sky. I promise once things start to settle down and I get situated, things will go back to normal! I still want to do an update before the Fall season and I'd also like to do another giveaway! I haven't forgot about you I promise!! Here's something pretty to make up for it.

Sweet Dreams to all! Melisa

Out and About

I have been movin movin movin! But thank goodness I am finally settled in!! I'm still doing a couple final touches on the room, but once I do, I plan to do a full post filled with lots of pictures:) I know I've been MIA for quite sometime, but I didn't want you to think I had forgotten about you. I also know that I am quite behind on Project Thirty entries. I fully intend on updating everything in these next few days. :)

A little somebody

So, for the last few years I have really wanted a little somebody in my life. And by that I mean a baby. No, I'm not saying that I personally want  a baby, I just really want one  in my life. I have married friends and lots of family, but not a baby in site. I want to make little tiny headbands and knit teeny baby booties. I just like little things that are cute and fun and who better to make things like that for, then a baby! So, for those of you that are so fortunate to have a baby in your life, there is the sweetest online class going on! It's called Small Craft and it's by the lovely Elsie Flannigan and Rachel Denbow. They are SO inspiring and simply brilliant at their craft. This class looks super sweet and fun. You should go check it out!!

I just updated Project Thirty!! I apologize for missing two days. I just got so swept up in everything else I kinda... forgot! Ooops! I'll be better. 
So, there's a lot going on in the shop. For one, we're having a mini update very soon! I'm currently working on my Fall Collection and I'm getting pretty excited^_^ Is there anything in particular you would like to see in the shop?? 
I'm also thinking of doing another giveaway here in the next week. I'll give you more details as soon as I put all of my thoughts together.
We will also be having more guest bloggers this season and I'm very excited to introduce them to you! As I said, there are A LOT of things going on in the shop!!
Now, I've recently discovered Lookbook.nu Which, how this was kept a secret from me for so long is beyond me! But here are some of my favorite looks...

Aren't they so much fun?? I just love those ruffled socks! What are your favorite new trends?

DIY: Pom Love

I haven't done a DIY in quite sometime, so I decided to document one that I'm actually creating for my room. I will soon be moving into my dorm room and I wanted to add a little extra something to make it feel like home. I love love poms! I think they're pretty and they're fun to make too :) 

Tissue paper {at least 8 sheets}
Fishing wire / thread

Step 1. Gather your sheets of tissue paper. They should be longer than they are wide. Any size will do... the bigger the paper, the bigger the pom {obviously}

Step 2: Begin to fold up your paper like an accordion. It should be about an inch long fold...

Step 3: Fold your paper in half. Cut the ends into points or round them. Then take your wire and fold it over the center portion, use your scissors to tighten the end of the wire around itself.

Step 4: Slowly begin to pull out each tissue layer one by one and pull them to the center {where the wire is} Continue to do this until you have a ball shape.

Step 5: Voila!! You have yourself a pom! You can now tie your fishing wire or thread to the wire, so that it can be hung :)

This is a picture of what your poms will look like once hung... I would show you mine, but I haven't moved into my dorm yet... This is a photo from PomLove's shop. I think these are just wonderful. I love the colors!! 

I'll show you how mine turn out when I give you a home tour:) Until then, enjoy these lovelies. Please feel free to share your comments and pictures of how your poms turn out!

A kind of vacation

So as you could tell, I haven't been around much. It appears as though I may have slipped into a mini vacation. ha! I came to visit my sister here in Austin and we've been having so much fun together that I haven't kept up with a lot of my "duties." Eeep! No worries though, I'm back on top of things :)
I have to practice my songs and get ready for one of the most important exams in my college career! and then I'm going to make a giant cupcake^_^ I hope it looks as yummy as these...
