I sometimes forget how much I love making things.
Especially when it comes to making things that would have cost me boat loads of moneys. Like a lovely comfy skirt from gap that would have cost me $4o!
Instead, I took a picture of it, and then went to the fabric store with a coupon, paid about $3 and made it at home. LOVE love love doing that. Especially when half way through I realize, "wait a minute! I don't actually know how to sew anything but a straight line... hopefully this will work!" and it DOES.
This weekend has been productive. and happy :) love it.
Here's the skirt :)
Gotta love the quality of cell phone pictures. Especially when they are taken by your little brother when you're not actually ready.

I've been telling a couple of people I'd post my songs for quite a while now and... I finally decided to get around to it!
This was the first (as explained in the ridiculous part of the video where I'm just talking) song I ever wrote. I wrote it my second semester of college and essentially just sat down, started strumming basic cords and saying random words and when I started to hear something that resembled a song I broke out a pen and paper. Weird, I know. Anyways, I hope you enjoy :)
Oh! Also, in case you didn't notice, I have yet to get ready for the day in this video. I'm lazy, sue me. I also couldn't figure out how to make the lighting better without moving to a different room so... ya.
