My Three R's
Since i never did well in 'Rithmetic, i have decided that my three R subjects are: Reading, Restructuring and Reusing. So what if i'm mixing school subjects with environmentally-conscious living? I think they go hand in hand. And with April being Earth Day's chosen month, i think i have chosen wisely.
I figure that restructuring and reusing, though similar, are different enough to merit their own subject headings. I had to Restructure a top to make it uniquely mine and wearable again. And i altered earrings that already existed into a better and more Usuable pair! So, to sum up my plans and accomplishments this month:
Stephen Lewis' Race Against Time - i love this man - he's an inspiration to us all. I can't wait to devour his lecture series.
Inspired by my new Tease book, i made this top. I need to work out a few glitches with my sewing technique - or lack there of - but i'm already excited about my next project.
My sister mailed me a package for just because (ain't she sweet) and made this great clutch/wallet/make-up bag from recycled pretzel bags. Too cool! And since it fits well with my Restructuring Theme, i wanted to show it to you:
I bought these triangle earrings from Value Village for $0.70 and made them into a classier pair of dangly earrings.
