Tank, Cadrigan, Skirt - Thrifted
I am feeling particularly ambitious today. Playing a lead role to arranging most things for the engagement party - shopping, logistical planning, making unlimited phone calls, settling in a new job that I got a month ago, and moving to a new house, rennovating the old house - is all causing me to be very tired lately. But today I am gonna share with you- things I would like to get started on - as this storm calms down a little.
So today I am going to share few things that I would like to learn over the next year or so:
- Learning how to stitch and sew - I admire bloggers who can pick up a XXL skirt from a thrift store and make it into a S size skirt/dress or they pick up a patterned cloth at the store and then make a beautiful dress out of it. Linking to my thriftiness addiction towards clothes, I think this skill would be used pretty often.
- I want to learn how make my own jewellery - more often than not, I see a beautiful piece of jewellery on someone's blog and I want it. Either it is sold out in the store or it is over $100.00. I can't afford that on a necklace so I am tempted to make my own. I plan to take a weekend class in fall 2011 and can't wait to get started.
- Getting around to learning to be more organized. I want to have an organized closet, organized dresser, organized office and learn how to make use of a small space. Moms are particularly good at this.
