4. My favorite modern music composer is Ben Botkin.
5. My favorite movie director is Frank Capra. He gave us It's a Wonderful Life, Meet John Doe, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, etc...
6. I still can't believe that Christmas is almost here! I need to watch some movies that will get me in the mood! Like Samantha: An American Girl Holiday, The Little Drummer Boy, or It's a Wonderful Life. :D
7. I am the party planner in my family. I love planning out and decorating our parties.
I'm going to start a new thing for Fridays. It is going to be called "Random Friday" and I'll post a picture of something that inspires me, or what just makes me smile. :D I hope you all will enjoy this new series! Let me know what you think about this idea.
I recently discovered Disney's blog and boy, does she do inspiring projects! (Yes, her name is Disney.) :D Hop over to her blog and be inspired! :D
For some reason, when ever I get sick I get very inspired in all things creative! Sickness cranks up my creative juices, I guess. :P
While I was sick in bed I was glancing through the magazine Belle Armoire, a delightful and inspiring magazine. I stumbled across an article by Bonzie that I had forgotten about, on taking plain t-shirts or tanks and changing them into something more creative. :)
Today I was feeling much better, and I have three old shirts were the sleeves had shrunk on me. So I decided to give the article a try. Here is my result. All I need was a little rick-rack, bias-tape, a fabric flower, a button, some ruffles and I have a one-of-a-kind t-shirt. Hurray!
My shirt started out as a regular turtleneck. As you can see above.
Step 1. Cut off the turtleneck part.
Step 2. Do what ever you want with the sleeves. I cut my sleeves a couple inches above my elbow.
Step 3. Do what ever you want to the neckline. I made mine into a v-neck, and added bias-tape around the neckline.
Step 4. Embellish in any way you want! I added some ruffles, a flower, rick-rack from London, and a button. :D
