The Sasse Life

“Bonnie and I are sister-in-laws who have a great deal in common. We love God, sewing, decorating, and pretty much all things crafty. This all started when Bonnie made my senior prom dress (the gold sequins still pop out of our sewing machine). We are stay-at-home moms who run a part-time business,Uncommon Designs. Our business is comprised of our blog and the shop where we sell our handmade items (such as fabric, kitchen textiles, holiday decor, and accessories).  

Over the last six months we have really focused on our blog and have enjoyed it more than we ever imagined! Our apothecary jars have always been a hit throughout blogland and we also are known for our craft tutorials and party styling! We have a weekly link party, Uncommonly Yours, UncommonEvents where we share party styling tips and inspiration, and will be hosting a Valentine series “Love is in the Air” at the end of the month!”
Some Fun Facts About Us…
1. We both graduated from Clemson University {Go Tigers!} and our husbands did as well ….and both sets of our parents did too!! Needless to say, our children feel like they have no choice! ;)
2. We both HATE having our pictures taken…think Chandler from “Friends” in the engagement episode! { if you haven’t seen it, you should, it’s funny stuff!}
3. We both are computer challenged…we have quite a few “Talk to me like I’m two!” conversations a day…one a year age went like this..” HTML what? I have no idea what you are talking about!” Baby steps…
4. We may or may not be the types of moms who let their children get mohawks for good grades, dye a purple streak in for good grades, and eat ice cream for dinner! Hey…it is only hair and who doesn’t love ice cream!
5.We both have a slight addiction to modern quilting fabric, burlap, and beautiful trim! We can spend hours picking out fabric for a project!

A BIG Thanks to Kim for having us as the featured blog!!
