DIY HIGH LOW SKIRT: FRIEND FIX

Hiya friends!
I hope your week has been good so far.

I think I'm getting the hang of the school schedule
and actually doing better than expected.

Putting myself on a daily schedule has truly helped.
I know what to do, when to do it and feel accomplished when I finish!
It's really given me some clarity  sanity.

Why I waited so long is beyond me.

//////////

Anyway, this past Friday I attended my 3rd wedding of the year!
That's right 3rd.
Pretty sure it's the last for a long while too.
No one I know is courting, dating, engaged or even looking.
Well a few are looking,
the others are waiting on God lol.

diy high low skirt, fixing skirt length

Both M.S. and myself were scrambling to find something to wear.
It's not like we didn't know the wedding was coming up,
I think we both just got caught up in other things.

So there we are a week before,
 she asks if I'd help her take up the length on her newly gifted skirt
 and tweak it a bit.

UPCYCLE: HEM + ZIPPER TIERED NECKLACE

MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014


zipper necklace, hem necklace, tiered necklace, diy necklace

A few weeks ago I worked on hubby's new work/church pants,
black denim and slacks;
and a few more I just finished. Sigh.
Although I initially got my Brother machine for that very purpose,
10ish years ago,
it is the least creative type of sewing I do.

This one time,
something fun came out of it!

SWADDLING SQUARES /2/: A GIFT FOR BABY

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2014




I'm so thrilled to do creative things again.

Growing a baby inside your tummy,
carrying said baby 9+ months,
delivering baby and living life wonderfully different,
are all amazing things,
but creative on the Lord's part.
HE's the one who gets credit for knitting you and I in our mother's womb,
I'm just a willing and able vessel.

NO COMPLAINTS HERE!

BUT,
after being creative with my maternity wardrobe,
both out of need and creative fulfillment;
then pretty much nothing as I joyfully focused on my little one,
have really enjoyed the fun, creative, anything, that's been flooding my brain!
