50th entry GIVEAWAY!

I finally have internet in my new apartment! I've missed being away; it's been over a week!

The move was successful! Carload after carload, I am almost completely moved into my new apartment in downtown Augusta, Georgia. Still have more fabric and crafting supplies to move. My living room isn't quite set-up and my sewing room is in dire need of Rachael's organization skills (my sister is amazing). I was previously in Evans, 10 miles down the road, living with Rachael. She is the reason I moved to Georgia from Michigan.

Clementine causing trouble.

I started a few new jobs in the last month/week. I am a fitting specialist (seamstress) at David's Bridal, and a bartender at The Playground downtown. I wish I could continue to sew out of my home full-time but since I have to start paying rent again (my lovely sister didn't charge me), it's a necessary evil. But David's Bridal is so much fun, I get to use an industrial sewing machine! And I'm learning so much.

Let's get down to business. This is my 50th entry, so I'm having a giveaway! I can't believe I'm already at 50! The next 50 will be filled with more recycling/repurposing ideas, tutorials, and tips for living more eco-friendly. I can't wait for what's to come. I have so many great projects just waiting for me to get my hands on them! A new dress tutorial later this week with my sister as my model.


This lovely handbag was made from vintage Sears curtains and holiday table linens. It is a great carry-all and the yellow is great for summer! All you have to do it leave a nice comment below! The winner will be announced Sunday, June 6th.

Good luck, and tell your friends!

  6. I really have to acknowledge you for not only your writing style but your creative designs. I am a brand strategist and interactive web designer and your presentation is really strong and moreso... Very honest and welcoming. I will be sending this blog to my own community. My wife will live your work and it will inspire many of my stitch-minded cohorts.
