It's been kinda crazy in my life latelly with school and work and stuff. I start making real creations at school this upcomming week it is very exciting. I am making a men's vest and women's sleeveless top. It's so amazing to be able to draw something and actually make it come to life. I cannot wait to show you the end products in the next few weeks. Here are a few of my recent thrift finds, a vintage straw hat, kitchy kitties and a 50s junior dress.
