CAPRIS 2 PANTS REDO

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

So, I've been extremely busy this week, more than usual. I had my kid's school Christmas parties, volunteering in their class, in our church's private school, childcare (2days only), PTA meeting, dentist appt, BAKING :), church office work, Church staff meeting, more BAKING, teacher gifts, preparing for our Christmas pics......homework, dinner, baths, you get the picture. 

Oh and If I could get off so easy, getting this REDO worked in and my Christmas one too so we could take our photos after service. AHHHHH!

(Happy place, Happy place, Happy place) lol

Thank you for being patient through all that.

Ok, though I worked on two items this weekend,  I will only post the first one as I wore it to church (the 2nd was for the photo). The next one, my Christmas one will be next week BECAUSE I wore that CHRISTMAS SUNDAY.

And yes, I WILL share our family photo :)

80's 2 PENCIL SKIRT REDO

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2011


I loved the colors on the skirt, reminded me of the Fall colors I adore and could not pass up the chance to work on it.
It was perfect for the cool California weather we've finally been experiencing. It seemed as if Fall (my total fav) was bypassed and went straight into winter like weather/appearance. You know...more of the dead looking leaves than the beautiful oranges, reds and purples Fall is typically characterized by. It of course was outdated, too long and TOO narrow on the waist.

BEST OF 2010/11: FIRST YEAR!

DECEMBER 6, 2011

I can't believe I started these redo's a year ago
and on a whim.
I was really just tying to get a hold of who I was
or at least a better sense.
I know I'm not done growing or discovering
but I am extremely thankful I took the leap and explored something new.


Even though I didn't post a whole lot,
there were a few posts that got more attention than others.
So, I'll be sharing those.
To get to the actual post just click on the month.

If it happened to be a light month,
 I'll put up the one post I did share.

Here's to the best of 2010/11!

FYI my year runs from Dec to Nov

Although I have a year's worth of posts (12/2010 - 12/2011)........
they were all done previously through FB and transferred to Blogger.


Today I get to share my VERY FIRST redo,
 of my 2011/12 year, on Blogger today!
I hope you'll join me and explore this coming year together :)

Here's to year 2 of Redo's!!!

REDO #52 ADDING A LAYERED RUFFLE

 SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2011 



LAYERED RUFFLE

  
 This is a proud moment!
I have been at these redos for a WHOLE YEAR!
52 REDOS in 52 weeks
(at the end here, I was on crunch time, catching up for lost time)!
 The biggest blessing has been knowing, that the God given creativity I possessed and lay dormant for many years, was reignited with fervor through this little project! 


 The feeling of accomplishment I've gotten from all these redos is pretty cool!



NOT in the "look at me, look what I  did" kind of way, but a

 "WOW, thank you LORD for helping me feel creative, inspired, resourceful, useful, proud
 (unboastful kind of course),CONFIDENT, etc, again!"  

Yep, He's great like that!

I also gotta say its been nice to share this fun little experience.
Even if for no one else but God and I.
I've gotten the chance to learn, do something I love, 
 figure this and myself out along the way,
mistakes and all.

I can't wait to start on year 2!
(My year runs from December 6 to December 6)

 PS...I HOPE YOU ALL HAD AN AWESOME THANKSGIVING!





REDO #50 MOM JEANS FIX & #51 TIE FLOWER

THESE are my LAST REDO's of the YEAR!!!!

Well.....let me clarify, while you IGNORE the fact that I'm late again in posting (its been a continual thing ) haha, this was due 11/27. 
These are the last redo's of my 2010/11 year!

 I did my very FIRST REDO the first week of December 2010, wore to church on that Sunday 12/5 and posted the next day.

My first 2 redo's this week are posted here, my VERY VERY last is in the next post.  


I worked on the 1st two items before our Thanksgiving trip down south, because I wouldn't have much time after our return. The last item I worked on Saturday night which I'll post next.  The jeans I bought a month ago at the thrift store but didn't like the "MOM" look.... you know the high waisted, big bun, unflattering look haha. I thought I'd give them a chance since I'd gotten a tiny bit of experience with my "FLO" pants. The flower was made from leftover boy's tie (REDO #48)


1. JEANS - $4.00 thrifted
2. FLOWER - $0 gifted boy's tie by Mom
