Day 5

Today I wore my Amy Butler Liverpool tunic made out of Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley. These pictures aren't from today but rather a few weeks back by Jenny .

And the back...

But I switched it up a little today and wore it with these...

And since I got my jewelry all put back away I thought I would show you how I store it and all my headbands.

My brother and sister-in-law gave me a dress form necklace holder covered in butterfly's, and since they're not my thing I decoupaged it in some paper Jenny brought me from Scotland.

I decoupaged and hooked an Ikea mirror for my necklaces...

and combined some Ikea frames lined with tulle for my earrings. I'm a little shamed to show how many pairs I own.

And finally, I've started an online photography class through school and here are a couple of my favorite shots while wandering through the front yard.

I'm off to Switzerland tomorrow to see a castle my family owned a long, long, long time ago, so hopefully I'll be back with pictures and a story to share!

Day 3

Thank goodness for 30 minute skirts! You'll be seeing a lot of these... This ones out of Heather Bailey's chevron stripes from her Pop Garden line.

Finally remembered to have someone else photograph. Thanks Kelly... keep it going!

Day 2

Darn, second day in and i'm already regretting doing this. Today I wore a modified version of the the torii tunic by serendipity studios. It's made out of jennifer paganelli's bell bottom line and accented with Tula Pink's nest fabric.

Note to self: stop taking awful unflattering photos at night by myself, and remember to ask someone whose good with a camera to take pictures. But you live and learn...

Self Stitched September (day 1)

Okay, so while i'm not a "real" participant in the Self Stitched September (mainly because who has time to read rules and fill out questiony things...?) I thought i'd still do it and try to post my stuff everyday this month that i'm wearing. Sadly, today, I wasn't thinking to take pictures until I got home tonight close to 11:00. So this is the best I could do...

(I swear that's the camera angle and wrinkles and not just my huge looking belly...)

It's the schoolhouse tunic I blogged about a couple of posts ago out of the Little Folks voile. Therefore i don't feel so bad for posting an awful photo of it. I did think to lay out a quilt though! That should get bonus points, because it means you don't have to see my thread, bead, and glitter covered pink rug!

P.S. I found my solution to the lamp posted below...! here is how the discovery went.

Me: I made this adorable lamp a couple of months ago, but look... I messed up and it's upside down and unusable.

Mom: let me see... (looks at it)... Katelyn, that's no problem at all. (unscrews light bulb, puts lamp shade on, screws light bulb back in.) see!

Me: (blushing) I feel stupid. And thankful to be living in a world full of brilliant people who can fix these things for me.

So now the lampshade no longer falls off the bulb while sitting on it, and alice is standing up right. Who could have known that lamps really work that way?
