My name is Alida and I have a blog called I Make Stuff. I have a boy and three girls, so my house is always loud, messy, dramatic and chaotic. My wonderful husband is going through medical school right now so I have all kinds of time to sew and craft (NOT!) Designing is what I do to keep my sanity. Go visit my blog and see how to make a baby swaddler, nursing top, messenger diaper bag just to name a few. You can also see how I took $35 and thrifted my way to a new Summer wardrobe of 30 outifts by visiting my Refashionista Event page. (Sometimes Mama deserves some new clothes too!) My little corner of Blogland is about whatever I'm doing at the moment, whether it's making a Halloween costume or grieving the loss of a family member. With me what you see is what you get, and I hope you like what you see! Stop by and say hi!
