Be bothered to find out where your clothes come from!
Before you mindlessly pick up another something cute and on sale
1. will I wear this item more than once?
2. do I really need it?
3. do I love love love it?
4. what’s it made from? & most importantly
5. does the cost even cover the Labour to create this fast fashion?
When we turn a blind eye, just because something is not right in front of us we are just part of the problem, not the solution.
I’m not perfect by any means but I do try to only shop at thrift stores, markets and my ultra fav, hand-me-downs, & clothes thrown out on the side of the street. #Goldmine
If I do have to shop retail I do my research & and I go for quality over quantity, I would rather pay a bit more for something really well made that I know I will get to keep and enjoy for a life time.
There is so much stuff out there already, we really don’t need to buy into fast fashion, or what magazines say are “in-trend” cultivate your own style, be free & make a statement by being YOU! not what you are told you should be this season!

I love when customers ask if I’m able to do something. It’s how my product offerings have evolved over the years. This customer had custom patches made for her pillows and wanted a way to personalize the ornaments also. After a few other failed ideas, I landed on these metal stamped charms. I will be offering these as an upgrade to all ornaments soon. #etsy#etsyshop#upcycle#memorypillow#memoryornament#upcycledclothing
When bae hits you up real early in the AM, says she's feeling artisty, and that we're going to paint some of her old jeans then we're go out to brunch. Definitely one of the most unique and enjoyable art dates I've ever had.
Oh boy oh boy I have a new @creativebug class out and in the promotional copy they called me “multi-talented” and I am so dang proud even though I almost certainly wrote that copy myself and just can’t remember? Link in bio!

“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.”...(Maharishi Mahesh Yogi)...Happy to have rescued these curtains, now reinvented as knitting project bags! ♻️❤️😊🧵🧶♻️
I’ve good news & bad news
the good news is I finished filming the making of this Tandem Top for the online workshop 👏🏼🎉 the bad news is (and you’ll laugh & laugh) I conducted a Tandem Top class with actual people (just after I’d finished weeks of filming/editing....so funny 😏) where I switched from trying to explain in the minutist details the REinventing process for the camera, to the quickest way to get the job done so that everyone could wear their tops home on the day 🧵✂️🥳 Long story short I’ll be refilming the making of a different Tandem Top so that you feel like you’re in a class and I don’t bore you with silly details....then everyone gets to wear their tops home 😜 ...and if you notice things are a bit quiet around here it’s because I’ve temporarily fallen down the online filming workshop hole!

The moment a pair of you upcycled Jean's becomes jeans for the toddler that are too big (even though you measured his waist twice) all hope becomes lost (or atleast on hold until you can get to joanns to get rope and grommets).

Screen printed w/ hand painted detailz fishy tees 🐟 🐠
Yesterday I finished sewing this jacket! It’s a little different than what I usually create as I’ve never used black embellished lace like this before. What do you think?! 💛 I imagine it styled with high waisted black skinny jeans, black platforms & a band tee 😍 or maybe even a black mini dress & knee high boots 🌟🙌🏻. The crystals & silver lining on the fabric make it look extra dressy but I think I kind of like the juxtaposition of elegance against the gray denim. 🤔 Let me know your thoughts, hearing from you is my favorite! 🌟

✨mauve-green dream ✨
No inspo this week.
My idea for this project was to make something sexy yet comfortable, making it wearable for any event.
Thanks for the great feedback from all of my work! Comment below if you’d enjoy some YouTube videos of me up cycling clothes or shopping for the things/fabrics that I use!
