Run DMT - I'm a mom on the run!

Reuse, Relove, Recycle

Allana had the brilliant idea to make throw pillows out of her old dresses.  But she forgot one small detail: I don’t sew.  I can barely stitch buttons.


 Reuse, Relove, Recycle


Fortunately, Grandma offered her expertise, taught Allana to sew and helped Allana fulfill her pillow dream.

Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    What a brilliant idea this is! I would love to know how to sew… and if I do, I’d love to make a quilt out of the baby clothes of the kids (well, whatever I have left that I hadn’t given away yet). =)

    And I am finding we have so much more in common. The VERY thing I say when people ask about sewing is…”I can barely stitch a button !”
