  5. Literally JUST stumbled on your blog because I Googled how to make an easy jersey shirt. I have two kids (both boys; one is two and the other 5 months) of my own and LOVE to do crafts (when I have the time). I rediscovered a sewing machine my mother bought me 10 years ago, so I am figuring that out all over again. I'm most interested in figuring out ways to change my maternity gear to fit my not-pregnant self. Can't wait to see your ideas!

  6. I just stumbled across your blog today and I'm kinda obsessed already! (Not in a freaky way, I promise :) My husband is back in school/praying about seminary/waiting for God to show us the next step and so i'm trying to learn how to be resourceful and a good steward of all God has blessed us with at this point in our lives and I love learning from others like you, who are obviously doing just that! I also started sewing (yesterday) and you are an inspiration to keep learning! Keep shining!

  7. Hi there! Just wanted to say I enjoyed your blog and I see we have some things in common! My Asian husband is a pastor also. You've made some great stuff; fun to check it out esp. since I'm not so great at sewing ;-)
    My blogs are: http://designablespace.tumblr.com and http://seibella.tumblr.com

  8. I adore you blog! Found it linked through another crafting site today :-) You and your daughter are just beautiful.

    BTW you little girl looks a lot like what I think mine will in a few years (Vietnamese mixed with my white-mutt-ness, lol). Did that make sense?

  9. You are so cute! I love your blog already and just stumbled across it from "One Pretty Thing." I have a 1 year old daughter and just love her to pieces. I can't wait to start making her more things - especially the no sew ruffle coat. So cute!

  10. I liked your blog a lot, I felt that all of your sewing, ideal’s and crafts are made from your heart and your sole are surrounding it, all the best to you and I will make sure to go over your blog every day.
    P.S it not a shame to be a financially poor, it will be if you emotionally poor.

  11. Hi Disney!,
    I recently discovered your blog and have been following for a couple of weeks now - it's SO cute! You're DIY projects are right up my alley! In fact, when I saw the capelet you made for your daughter, I had to make one right away for mine! I have a daughter who is almost two, so it was perfect!
    I posted about making it here: www.arrowsinmyquiver.blogspot.com. There is a link back to your blog in my post.
    In Him,
    Kelsey

  13. From one Jesus, husband, child, crafting, coffee loving pastors wife to another, thanks for all of the ideas. I just found your blog and am fully enjoying it.

  14. Hey Disney...

    This is my first trip to your blog but definitely won't be my last. I am a Canadian PW just learning to sew and I adore all your awesome creations! I just made a wardrobe refashion commitment for 2 months so I think I will be here a lot!

    I also think it's awesome how many pastor's wives and Jesus followers are commenting here...there are some forums where pastors wives can all chat but I love that everyone here has so much in common. I think it would be so nice to have a Jesus centred sewing/creative retreat with all of you!

    Have a great day Disney...ooo, and I am up right now because I am cuddling my 6 month old Liam back to sleep while my 2.5 year old Chloe is sleeping...going backto bed now.....zzzzz

  15. Fun blog that I will have to catch up on. I'm a youth pastor's wife (and also in that extremely poor category) with three little girls (4, 2, 9 months)that I love making things for (if I have time to sit and breathe), so most of my stuff is made from my mother in laws stash or stuff people buy for/give me. I just started blogging this summer myself and love reading other sewing blogs for ideas! Cool blog design, btw!

  25. I was just directed to your blog by Jules from Pancakes & Franks, and I love it! Your daughter is the most fashionable little girl I've seen in a while-- she's absolutely precious and so lucky to have a mother like you! My one-year-old adopted cousin is coming to visit with her new parents from India next week, and I can't wait to make some of this for her! Many blessings for the new year to you and your family!

  27. Hi Disney,,

    I love your name, your blog and your Esty shop!! You are darling and so is your little girl.

    I've been following you for a some time but I've been away from blogging for a few months. It was so refreshing to come back and check in again!

    Happy New Year!

  28. I recently discovered your blog (linked through someone elses I think!) and just had to let you know that I think both you and your daughter are totally precious! I can't wait to get my sewing machine back (I'm away at University without it at the moment!!) so I can try out some of your fab ideas... I hope that when I come to have children your blog is still around, as the clothes you make your daughter are gorgeous! Until then, all the littles of our family will be getting clothes for birthday presents hehe! Thank you for the wonderful ideas, Sabrina xx

  31. Hi Disney,

    I wanted to tell you that I just found your blog from someone that I follow on Twitter and I think I'm now addicted! I can't wait to go home TODAY to try out ATL ruffle tank (as, like you said, Ann and I are also kinderd spirits and I have spent gobs of money there myself)! :) But it will have to wait until after my trip to the $1 store to pick up some microwave plate covers! I'm re-doing my 5 year old's room and I've been looking for a small night light but more of a lamp-like light! Thank you so much for sharing your love of crafts!

  43. I'm IN LOVE with your blog! I find myself checking everyday to see whats new. Your daughter reminds me so much of my 18mnth old daughter, probably because my husband also is Asian. You inspire me with all your projects and your photos are just stunning. Thanx so much for sharing!!

  45. Hi Disney! I found you through the 'Sew, Mama Sew' site and fell in love with you and your blog immediately. (In a normal, non-stalker way!) And it was a double-blessing to find that you are a believer, too, and that you love the Lord unashamedly even in this public arena. Blessings to you and your family.

  48. Darn! I just learned about you today and am sad to hear that you've left the blog world (I just joined a month ago.. I know, I'm 10 years late). Well, I just wanted to let you know that you are so beautiful as is your daughter. Your crafts are so inspiring and I can't wait to read your archives to learn from you. Did you really only blog for a year or did you have an older blog and moved here later on?
    You will truly be missed!!!

  52. I've just come here from some blog surfing around some mighty creative blogs - and I'm so glad I found yours. It's lovely and refreshing, and for whatever reason you came back to blogging after your break, thank you :)

  53. Stumbled upon your blog and am in love with it. I have two young girls and during their afternoon nap time looked through the last year or so of posts and got absolutely inspired. After nap time, playing and dinner- my 2 1/2 year old and 8 month old went to bed for the night and I got out my sewing machine. I took one of my shirts that I was going to give to a thrift store just because I was bored with it, and made it into an adorable dress for her. I am so proud of it and can't believe I would have gotten rid of that shirt if I had not read your wonderful blog. She was so proud of her new dress and head band. I want to make one of your crafts a week. Love everything here, it is so well done and cute. It's perfect for my life and family too because the crafts are fairly simple and I have two cute daughters like yours. Thank you for your amazing ideas, so excited to make more crafts.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, you're super talented and your daughter is adorable! You two should be either on a DIY show or models! Seriously, omg! <3

  72. Hey Disney! i completely love your blog. I'm 23 years old, on my first real job, struggling thru a writer's block, and trying to find back my old 'crafty' streak like u call it. i've been following ur lovely blog for about a week now... n i superlike all ur pretty artsy craftsy creations... especially ur pictures and your own little "punkin" angel :) i really like ur dresses, specially the white ruffle dress. i think i wont be able to sew and make dresses in this lifetime. . but u've inspired me to be more creative, and not just be wrapped up in my problems and over-all life. also, where i live, we've no larabars and im a hopeless cook :D but i picked up my camera again in the last few days... and have found myself going back to trees, clouds, sunshine, birds, and butterflies. . i feel happy reading ur blog. i admire how u make life look so beautiful, and make me believe in it. Lord bless u and ur family. thank you :)

They do look alike I must admit, such sweet little girls! I think your super classy, cute, quirky and very talented, thanks again for sharing. Ps, I have recently found a love of jesus an I can see his light shines through you and your daughter, god bless!

  76. I stumbled on your blog via project run& play, and I am so glad I did! 1, I love that you are named after Disney, as it's one of my favorite places. 2 your darling girl is beautiful, and 3 I am so grateful to see such a capable and creative blogger who is a Christian and glorifies God with her work. There seems to be a serious shortage of Christian housewives who create things for their children as image bearers of Jesus, so I am blessed beyond words to find your blog. Thank you!
