Great gift ideas for Springtime Celebrations

Just recently, our beautiful goddaughter made her Confirmation and my husband had the honor of being her sponsor. 

After scouring the Internet for the perfect gift idea, I decided to look no further than the amazing Home a la mode website (I’m not biased or anything :))  I decided to make her a quilt – I loved the idea of a keepsake that she could take with her wherever life takes her.  Naturally, I turned to our line of “Say It With Words” panels – especially the scriptural ones.  I felt drawn to the “Beatitudes” panel – I felt this is a great outline for how we should live our lives.

Whenever you are looking for the perfect gift for someone, look no further that our “Say It With Words” panels – there is something for everyone.  We are adding more and more as they become available so don’t hesitate to let us know what you are looking for.

I would love to see your projects that you have made with our awesome panels – feel free to email them to me at

Happy Sewing!


Happy Birthday to my Dad!

My dad recently celebrated his birthday with us.  It was a great day with family and we were blessed with AH-MAZINGLY beautiful weather.  We all enjoyed so time outside, just playing and spending time together.  My wonderful hubby fired up the grill and we made our favorite burgers.

Our “Bacon-Cheddar Burgers” Receipe – It really isn’t a recipe, but here you go:

Who doesn’t like a bacon cheddar burger?  Well, we have put a little spin on the traditional one.  Just cook up your bacon – we like our bacon just a little crisp, but not too hard.  Once the bacon is cooked, just chop it up into small pieces.  Then take your cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese) and shred it up – fresh shredded cheese tastes so much better than the pre-shredded kind.  Now, just take all your ingredients and mix them together (my hubby also likes to add a little brown sugar, along with pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder).  Just patty them up and throw them on the grill!  Let me know your favorite spin on a traditional burger!

And, what’s a birthday celebration without cake?  My dad requested a sugar-free blueberry cheesecake 🙂 (Isn’t the tablecloth adorable?  Get all your birthday decorations here!)
