...Hello? (And Guest Posting at Whip Up!)

Hello in there....


I wanted to let you all know that I'm guest posting today at Whip Up! I'm so excited! It's a little footwear refashion that I've had in my head since I made the "Lauren" headbands.

I turned these:


Into these:



The shoes weren't exactly ugly to start with, but just a little boring to me. We never really wore them. Now they're some of my favorites! I love the color contrast on mine. And I was able to save the original bows and make some little clippies for Paige! Hot dog!




I had so much fun doing these, I wish I had ten more pair to work with! I'd love to try some of these ideas:

Sources: 1,2,3,4

 I won't lie...this is the first project I've done since I stopped blogging. Isn't that crazy? Sad, but true. I suppose, in my case, half the fun of making things is sharing them with the world! Or, a very small part of the world, anyway. :o) But I will admit, writing a tutorial again was absolutely thrilling, and it's already put a couple of other ideas in my head.

So...how've you been?? 
Well, I hope! I feel like I'm talking to friends I haven't seen in years! I can't tell you how much it means that you're all still here. When I announced that I wasn't going to blog anymore, I braced myself for seeing the 4,000+ followers drop to a depressing zero. ...But you stayed. :o) I can't believe it! And I've even had a few hundred more friends join since then. (Welcome!) I was definitely not expecting that, it is so wonderful to see you all here still.
And we have been doing great, by the way! I wish I could say that this post marks the beginning of my return, but I I'm not sure that I'm quite ready for that yet. But I've been so encouraged by your comments, and I think maybe I will try to show my face around here a little more often! In the mean time, I hope you enjoy the tutorial over at Whip Up.

Until next time!
P.S. I also want to say thank you to everyone who sent well-wishing goodbye emails. I know that sadly, many of the literally hundreds of you never got a reply, and I'm sorry. But please know that they really did mean so much to me. Thank you!

  24. Disney?! I'm so glad I resisted those nudgings to unsubscribe! These shoes are super cute, so I think I might not get rid of all the boring shoes I was looking to donate.

    Hope your non-blogging life is phenomenal, but it's nice seeing you!

  49. YAY! I happened upon your blog last week and was crushed that I it was "the end". But I have still added it to my favs on my blog and I am reading over your tutorials daily! YOU!!! are the reason my sewing machine is up and running and why I have been sewing everynight for the last week and trying out new things...made a ruffle last night! Until last week, my machine was sitting on my craft table begging to be threaded and used, but I didn't know how and the manual is confusing! So...THANKS! Please post more! YOu are an inspiration!

  63. You two look so cute together. You have made my day. Happy tears actually came to my eyes just seeing you. This is a great refashion. Love it. I'll have to give it a try sometime. I have some old leather pants that were given to me that I kept for the purpose of turning them into something else, what I didn't know.

  90. I never thought I would smile at my computer but I did when I saw your blog come up in my reader. Then I thought, "Who is mean enough to hack into Disney's blog just to taunt and torment us?" Then I went to your blog...saw it was you...AHHHH!!!! So so so happy. And please, please, please stay!!!!

Glad to hear that you're well and glad to see you and your cutie so giddy and happy.

  129. Ok. So I just want to share with you that I have been reading your blog for close to a year now and you were one of my inspirations to begin sewing and blogging. I just started my blog the end of July and I was so sad that you were leaving as I was begining...bc I knew we could be the best of blogging buddies (not that you dont have enough of those, ha)! So you could imagine my excitement when I saw on my blog roll that you had a post! OH MY...welcome back long lost friend :-)

    Love,

    The best bud you didnt know you had!

    P.S. Feel free to post whenever, a little of your blog is better than none at all!

  139. What an awesome surprise to see you back! I found your blog not very long before you decided to be done and it quickly became a favorite. I would like to suggest that instead of hanging up your blogging hat you just post when you can, no matter how far apart those posts are.

  182. Disney,

    I have an award for you on my blog post for today. I have pasted down below what I had to say about you. Hope you will be accept this award as it is just a small token of how much I appreciate and love you and your blog.

    http://sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com/2010/09/beautiful-blogger-award-discover-some.html

    "I am so excited that Disney of Ruffles and Stuff has done a post after a long blogging break. It absolutely made my day. I adore her blog, and she and her family are so precious. She is a very talented sewer and crafter, a Christian and was homeschooled and will of course homeschool her own daughter. I think that's pretty cool since we are a homeschool family. I would be so honored is she would accept this award from me. Also, awhile back she agreed to be a guest on my blog. We haven't set a date yet. I'm so excited."
