Blogger Bloopers with Disney from Ruffles and Stuff

Today we have Disney from Ruffles and Stuff.  Can I just say I completely adore her?  She has the sweetest personality that truly shines through her blog.  She is extremely creative and talented and she wears her heart on her sleeve....or maybe I should say on her blog :)  Welcome lovely Disney!

So Cheri asked me to do a guest post about my "blooper" experiences as a crafter and blogger, and I was like "huh??" What's she even talking about? Bloggers don't make mistakes....
 Everyone knows that we have perfect lives. We always look amazing. 
Every photo is like a magazine cover....
We are perfectly perfect at all times.
 And our children are just the same....picture perfect at every moment.
Well....ok...I guess there were a few (hundred) projects that didn't turn out as well as hoped.
Take this skirt I made for Paige when I first started getting back into sewing. Not too bad from far away, huh? Kind of a cute nautical thing going on....
 Now let's have some close-ups. Check out this fraying action! And get this-I did it on purpose. I thought it was so cute at the time! "A fraying hemline! How...adorable!" :o/
 Not to mention the mis-matched seams, and the hem tape that I sloppily sewed on. Nice.
 And here's a lovely zoom-in of my waistband handiwork. Complete with a hole through one seam.
 The worst part is? She wore it to church one Sunday. Yikes.

Here's another beauty:
I had this incredible idea that I would sew the cuffs of a mens shirt to the neckline of my jersey dress. (Go ahead, laugh, that's what we're here for!) I'm pretty sure I thought I was a genius at the time.
 Annnnd a hole right through again.
 One of my first posts was about this little bubble dress I made for Paige. Oh, isn't it cute....
 The only problem? I didn't know how to make a bubble skirt at the time. I'm not sure why my attempt involved...elastic....I just don't know what to tell you about that one.
 But needless to say, I didn't quite get the look I was going for.....
And because I couldn't resist, here's my all-time favorite "blooper" photo:
Yes. Wetting her pants in mid-photo. A Kodak moment, as they say. :O)

So, OK, I guess we're not perfect. I'm pretty sure we're just like everyone else, but with fancier cameras. :O) I think I can speak for us all when I say, feel free to enjoy a laugh at our expense any time you'd like!

Thanks for having me, Cheri, and have a fun day, everyone!

Thank you SO much for being here and keeping it real Disney!  And thank you all for stopping by.


  1. Oh my gosh I am cracking up at the bubble dress and the pee on the ground ~
    This is a great post!
    I have been reading a bunch of them actually ~
    Your blog is awesome!!


  2. You know what... that was awesome Disney!! I always thought you looked almost too perfect on your beautiful blog with your gorgeous style and beautiful daughter. Thanks for being so honest!

  3. Oh my goodness. Just what I needed this morning. What a great post. I can't stop chuckling at the photos of your daughter in the bubble dress. Her expressions are priceless. :)

  4. Thank you for a light-hearted approach to a more 'serious' issue: we bloggers try to make everything so pretty and perfect. And it simply isn't true.

    There's a fine line between 'airing all your dirty laundry' on the Internet and 'plastering on the cyber equivalent of a fake smile'. I think it's called authenticity and integrity.

    Thanks for making me laugh! And go you, for having the courage to share said bloopers.

    This Good Life

  5. That's Awesome! I'm feeling better about my junk already! ;) Thanks.

  6. Love this series! Makes me feel better about all the times I'm trying to cram my kid's heads through neck holes that are too small.

  7. WHOA BABY!! Thanks for the out loud laugh. Peeing down the leg during the pic and her totally honest look to her "NEW BUBBLE DRESS!" is priceless. Thanks for the realism.

  8. I am stifiling laughter in my cubicle at work right now. I am also crying. This is too funny! Thank you so much for sharing. It makes me feel 1000 times better about all of my fails.

  9. I love this:). Especially the pee one, ha ha! I love Disney!

  10. This is adorable, it's great to see a blogger I adore have real, and sometimes unfortunate mistakes! Thanks for sharing Disney!

  11. This literally made me laugh out loud! ha ha Love that we are all mom bloggers who make mistakes and can laugh about them. I could totally add to this post with my own mishaps. Thanks a bunch for sharing this (laugh out loud) moment with me today! I needed it! :) Laughing is good for the mind and soul.
    Enjoy reading your blog, keep it up!

  12. I'm dying at the pee photo!!! Priceless.

  13. hahaha, i laughed so hard at this it actually distracted my husband from some shootery game! glad i'm not the only one with some 'oh dear' moments!

  14. Your blog is my new favorite to follow!! I love everything about it - especially that you are so genuine and willing to share your mistakes!!!

    I love this series you've been doing this week! It makes me feel so much better about my craft fails.... Coincidentally, my post today was about a fail, even though I had originally intended to post about something lovely :-p (It's here if anyone is interested...)

  18. Oh my. Absolutely hilarious. I love that everyone is exposing that ARE in fact human!

  19. Oh that last picture made me laugh so hard!!

  20. Thanks for showing me I'm not the only one who misses things when I sew! The last one made me laugh and already I'm in a better mood! I can see my daughter doing that in a heartbeat. As bad as it sounds sometimes it is nice to know people you admire are human too.

  21. OMG. That bubble dress.... I'm sorry, but I have not laughed that hard in while. I almost made my own puddle of pee from laughing so hard!

  22. It is such a relief to read that you great bloggers make mistakes just like I do. I'm not sure if you make as many as I do, but still... I just feel refreshed. This is the best series ever. I have seriously lost all sewing mojo, and I know part of it is comparing myself to others who I think do it better.

  23. Oh, you made me feel like a kindred spirit. Glad I'm not alone in my bloopers.

  24. So funny Disney. I love your humor :)
