Black on black, let’s do blue on blue. It’s a nice change from the usual.
Thanksgiving was like Christmas for me. My Dad opened his cedar chest (mmmm the smell of cedar) and gave me sweaters he no longer wore. Truth be told, these were for my husband but I was the middle man. Is that greedy of me?
This blue one was a bit boxy; not my man’s type anyway… (Tutorial after the jump)
When I decluttered my closet a few months ago, I promised myself I would not add another “non-staple” item. So why am I going to clothing swaps you ask. Well, you never know what you’ll find. I donated a large bag of clothing, and came back with a few pieces I can work with.
The Scrap Exchange hosted a community event yesterday, so my sis and I headed over to see what we’d get ourselves in to. I dig everything the scrap exchange puts together. They are truly an organization that empowers locals to be creative and socially conscience at the same time.
Frantically, my sis and I searched through piles of donated clothing. No shame here people, for the low low price of $0.00, I scored a beautiful genuine leather A-line skirt, a fuuuuulllll pink skirt, 2 tops, and a sweater that will not be a sweater for long. Scissor happy me has plans to transform mostly everything I picked up. And you know I’ll share the diy love ya’ll. Watch me now!
Over the last few weeks I’ve added a few more leather earrings to my collection. I have all intentions of posting pictures this week. There will even be a giveaway for the month of July. Don’t miss it!
All of the materials I used are from a local shop named The Scrap Exchange. The name says it all. I love the store because I come out with the most random neatest finds, while supporting environmental and community awareness.
