the making of a vision board

RO_-7

 

What else is there to do on a summer morning except to make a vision board. I like having order in my life, having a plan, a schedule. I obviously had to be even more planned and organized out, which led me to make a vision board. My sister and I cut things out of fashion magazines that “spoke to us”. What spoke to me were headlines about the women joining Congress. What spoke to my sister were ads for chocolate bars. That doesn’t matter, but we had fun collaging and were able to get through half a season of friends.

My 2018 Bullet Journal + Small Announcement

BULLETpicture credit: zen of planning

 

Hello Everyone! This was highly requested, so here it is! At the beginning of 2018, I started my first bullet journal. Over the past month, I have gotten much better at Bullet Journaling. Because I am not very artsy. My bullet journal isn’t as artsy and pretty as most since it mainly used to organize my life. But…. I have gotten better and it does look pretty good. I only have it done up to February. Yet I have learned a lot. Like Calligraphy. I thought learning how to do calligraphy would up my bullet journal game. I just took some simple pictures of my February spread and my favorite pages.  I also have a small announcement having to do with spring break.

Hello Everyone! Summer is almost over, it’s time to clean our closets again. We ( My sister, mom, and I ) cleaned one and I found so many amazing upcyclable clothing. One of them, is a cute skirt that was old. It had a perfectly good zipper and two pockets. The fabric is an amazing lace and cotton, layered. It’s really easy to make and not time-consuming.

Upcycled Off the Shoulder Shirt

CLICK ON THE HEADING FOR MORE.

This was one of my favorite up- cycling project ever. I took a oversized mens shirt and made it into a off the shoulder shirt. It took me about an hour to make.

The shirt was on sale at Walmart when we bought it.  The fabric is really soft and flowy. I love the red Hawaiian print. it’s a high to low shirt and has short sleeves. First I cut the top of the mens shirt off and trimmed the bottom to make it high to low. Then, I cut the sleeves using scraps.  I sewed the sleeves to the main piece and then sewed elastic across the entire hemmed piece. Lastly, I hemmed all the other edges.

I normally wear it during the summer because of the fabric and length. Jeans and shorts go well with it. In the future, I would probably add straps to the actual shirt. This shirt was really fun to make.
