A New Adventure

Ok, so I'm finally doing it-a blog!  I've always wanted to blog but never felt like I had anything even remotely cool or interesting to talk about, that is, until now!

I was recently inspired by a blog that I came across about a lady who bought awfully outdated dresses from thrift stores to alter them into something worth wearing-and not to an ugly Christmas sweater party!  As I'm sure many of you know, I have always enjoyed sewing so this has really gotten my creative juices flowing.  What better way to recycle as well as to get that vintage feel without getting crazy looks when walking down the street! Not to mention you can get pretty good deals at thrift stores or garage sales compared to shopping in stores.

I might even be branching out in the future to other thrift store creations besides clothing as well, I guess it just depends on what treasures I can find! I'm going to start out making my goal to do one piece per week.  Maybe I'll become more ambitious, who knows!  Also, as many of you probably know, I am quite a random person, so some of my photography and other random things may pop up here and there.  It just makes things more interesting, right? :)

So I'm beginning this journey and I'm excited to see where it goes!  I hope you will accompany me in this new endeavor and please feel free to leave any comments, thoughts, or ideas you might have. 

I've already completed my first piece, which I will be posting tomorrow!! Yay!  Below is a preview of whats to come.  I hope you are as excited as I am! :)
