Man it has seemed like it has been forever since I posted something on here. And it has been over a week. But I just got so busy that I totally forgot about blogging. But I never forget about craftin' :)

So here are some things I have been working on the past week. We made a huge trip to the Goodwill Outlet store where you buy all items by the pound. And it is a crafter's paradise. I like going there for random XXXL men's shirts that are basically 10 cents and make great fabric for totes. But I picked up this little gem.

Straight out of 1986, it even had huge shoulder pads that I cut out. I also shortened the sleeves up, took some in on the sides and cut out this horrible mock-neck thing. I wish I had remembered to take a "before" shot. Then to make it totally all mine, I cut-out a little felt dino and hand-sewed him on. I can't believe I worked on a sweatshirt in this July heat, every time I had to try it on to make sure I sewed right, I about died. But now I can't wait until the fall to show it some love.

Then we decided to re-arrange our bedroom (another bad idea in the July heat/humidity). I finally got this picture back from my dad who had it hanging in his office for a while. It is a copy of a Matisse that I was required to in college. I always liked how it turned out and now we had a chance to hang it up in our bedroom.

Mine is on the above left and the original is on the lower right (as if that isn't super ridiculously apparent!)
