Another Friday is here, and along with it the end of September. Where does the time go? It will soon be Christmas! With that in mind, let me introduce you to another great etsy shop- Your Girlish Whims. Rebecca sells handmade jewelry and accessories.
I finally tried out my Silhouette SD. I won one back in May. I am ashamed to say I left it in the box until one day last week. I was afraid it would take a long time to set up and I thought I just didn't have the time. I also had to make room for it. I finally decided to move some things off my desk and move my printer, so the Silhouette has a home. None of the moving or set up took as long as I thought it would.
My first official project was to make a Frankenstein hand sanitizer for my hubby for his birthday.
First let me announce that I have started a fashion/style blog, Savvy Southern Style. You can see more outfits there. I like to chatter about the details of an outfit so much that a week long review of everything in one post gets to be a bit too much. And I'd like to keep this blog mostly about crafting, so I started another one to journal my outfits. Please check it out.
Skirt - Salvation Army Thrift $2.50
I'll have to shorten the skirt for it to be a midi on my shortie self, but that's do-able. And it rocks more jewel tone colors.
Have you found any of the latest trends at your thrift store?
I missed posting WIWW for a couple of weeks because I've been on work related travel and the hotel rooms and my schedule did not allow for pics or posting. I'm back this week with a couple of casual outfits and a work outfit.
I've been reading up on fall's fashion trends for this year in all the magazines and blogs and I've been adding them to my wardrobe with thrift store and consignment purchases. If only it would get cool enought to wear my finds. It's been so easy to find all of the trends for $1.00- $7.00. I'll be sharing my finds in a three or more part series. Here's part one:
It's time to start thinking about fall projects ( if only the temperature would cooperate around here.) I admired all the pumpkin projects in blogland last fall. Maybe this year I will get to try some. I had the good fortune to find some craft pumpkins at a yard sale this spring ( I wouldn't pay the Michael's price last fall) so here are some ideas I have for them:
Okay, I'll admit that title is a little cheesy! Do you ever struggle with post titles? Anyway, I've been making rosettes for quite some time now, and I think rosette necklaces are the perfect accessory when you need to match or coordinate color with an outfit or add a pop of color to an outfit. A couple of weeks ago I needed something to tie an outfit together so I whipped us this necklace in about an hour.
