A New Look at MAS

Hi Friends,
I am so proud that I figured out how to make a new banner for my blog! I have been wanting to try this for some time and today's snow day was the perfect chance. I installed the Adobe PhotoShop Elements that Hubby bought for me months ago. I wanted to use some images of children from vintage pattern covers and I figured out how to do it!! I scanned the images and cut out their outlines in PhotoShop, then added them to a background. 
 This is an intermediate step to what I really want to do, which will include a "Mommy's Apron Strings" icon and other website updates- like search, tags, and buttons. 
Thank you to all of you who have recently become followers! I click on your profile when you join and I try to "follow back" if you have a blog. It's fun to know that people are reading and enjoying what they see. I think I will have to start planning a great give away for 100 followers!!
Leave a comment and let me know if you like my new banner. Also, what type of give away would you like? Something homemade, vintage patterns, fabric or lace, magazines and books?

Hello Lisa,


I'm your new follower #95!
I stumbled on your blog this morning following a link to the sweet baby jane pattern {which is SO adorable}. I had to follow so that when I "need" the cute baby outfits, I'll remember where to go. I'm patiently waiting to be a grandma! For now, I guess I'll continue sewing for our little Italian Greyhounds.
Your blog banner is adorable! I'm sure the former one was cute as well.
Enjoy your day and happy sewing!

I am brand new to Pinterest. I really enjoy your blog. I made a guess to win a pattern and hope I do. I love sewing and smocking. The christening dress is beautiful! Sorry for the stepped sentences, it's late and I kinda have brain drain! Look forward to following you.
