You guys, I moved!! I finally got into my new place Sorry for the downtime, but my wifi is all set and now I’m getting ready to get back into the swing of things.
Figured I’d share some of my moving shots from boxing and labeling my DIY goodies…
…to saying goodbye to my little panic room door that when opened…
…hid my wee sewing studio. I’m looking forward to my new space complete with a proper area to sew and space for all of my supplies!
As I was sorting through things to keep and donate, I found something amazing from years ago. The gift certificate to Jennifer Convertibles that I won on The Price is Right!!!!!
Can’t wait to see what this is going to get me there…many, many, many years later. (I will obviously have to document this moment.)
After days of taping boxes, wrapping glass in bubble wrap, and taking down all of my fun Etsy art, I finally had my old apartment empty. It was time to say goodbye and step into my new home that I can’t wait to fill with more memories.
When moving into a new place, one always rolls their sleeves and wears their Game of Thrones tee shirt given to them by their Reddit Secret Santa.
That’s just how one rolls.
I’m spending the next few days unpacking but will be back in sewing mode this weekend. Fun remakes to come next week!! Thanks for all your patience and lovely emails! So happy to be starting this next chapter of my life in a brand new space! xo
I love it when this happens.
Yeah, I’m talking about when that dress just won’t fit. In this case, I couldn’t get one of my arms into the sleeve nor button up the top portion of the dress.
This just wasn’t going to work…
Time to make this something wearable!
Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit offline the past week because I’m moving (yay!! still in LA, but to a space where I’ll have an actual studio to work in!!) and have been in crazy boxing up mode. Alas, I’m back and have some really fun remakes around the corner.
This is just one you get to look forward to…
And, here’s another…
Also, a winner will get announced later today from the pre-holiday goodie giveaway (someone is getting a chic, new Rafe purse!!) and I see a bunch more giveaways coming up while I take down the arduous task of boxing up my apartment!
Happy almost 2015, friends!! This is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only is it my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!!) but it’s the start of new things to come. There’s some fun stuff ahead in the pipelines and I can’t wait to fill you all in! But, let’s talk about the important stuff – what are you wearing tonight??
This is such an easy project to make and one that’s perfect to complete when you’re dyeing other pieces. I found this vintage beaded purse at Goodwill that had lots of darkish spots on the pink satin as well as a handle that was dark, dirty, and just not something that you’d want to hold onto.
I thought a little dye dip would do the trick, so I added this purse into the dye bath I created for this lovely dress (click here for the full post)…
…and ended up with the perfect NYE accessory!
I wasn’t into the strap, so I snipped it to create a clutch.
I can’t wait to wear this with my sequins tonight!!
I love that the sequins are pronounced now! What a fun way to give this tossaway a new life. Love that Rit Dye!
Where are you counting down tonight?
