I got a job. It is really really cool, and I’m loving it so far. I don’t want to get much in to it though, but its at a small studio in SF called Studio Far. I get to help design bags, and its awesome. I get so excited about it every day. I love it! I am so thankful and blessed to have such an awesome opportunity. Being paid to do what you love is so awesome… It feels too good to be true, so I try to appreciate every day of the job.

Because of this job this whole crafting summer thing hasn’t really happened, but after a very depressing shopping trip today I realized that I need to stop BUYING things to make and use what I already have. (except for shoes, I am on an on going quest to buy good quality shoes after having serious bouts with plantar fasciitis) My goal is to try to upcycle clothes that I’m unhappy with, and slightly alter clothes ┬áthat I don’t wear because they fit funny.

Trying to get back into sewing. I’ve been having a hard time, with a few botched projects that didn’t turn out. I’ve been doodling stuff, what sucks is I get some great ideas in my head during bike rides and I can’t seem to draw and bike at the same time.

But here is my first real attempt at “upcycling” or refashioning clothing. This was a strapless 3 tiered ruffled dress, but it just made me look too ruffled and fluffy, so I made it into a peplum top.
