Stuff I've Been Doing

I took a silk painting class today with Audrey Durnan through the ASG-LA Chapter. The class was super fun and I learned that it isn't really all that hard to create a beautiful masterpiece! I bought the supplies I'd need to make more pretty stuff. I'm not sure I want to branch out into another hobby, but this one could include sewing if I used my painted silk to make garments, right?

I was all set to come home and make me a new dress. No, I didn't make this dress. I happened to stop at a thrift store on my way home from the class and found the dress, the shoes, and the bracelet all for less than a $20 bill. I couldn't believe I found the complete outfit, in my size, at the same store at the same time. And yes, I've gained a few pounds back, thanks for asking. My job this summer will be to exercise my butt off, literally and stop eating carbs. I'm not feeling well and I'm not sleeping at all. But my hair looks good, right?

In case you were wondering, I did get the last thrift store garments remade. The cat's been sleeping on them so they have to be washed before I can share them with you. I guess I better get started on that laundry.


  1. You look good in that great thrift store outfit! Finding everything for a whole outfit at one time doesn't happen very often!

  2. How lucky is that! Your silk painting is VERY impressive. I can see this braching out to your sewing very nicely. We want more!

  3. Oh, silk painting sounds like fun! I haven't tried that, but I can certainly see its potential.

  4. I like your butterfly, and the thrift-store steals are good, too!

  5. gorgeous butterfly! that looks like so much fun!
