Creation Addictions + Updates

I haven't written in a while, because I have been busy with my hands. I have discovered two new loves to add next to my love of photography: pottery and sewing. Right now, I am working on sewing something every day since I don't have any classes. So far, I have made a scarf, a padded cage liner for my rats, and a t-shirt. The t-shirt was my first project, and I was pleased with how well my seams turned out. I took it to the Sewing Center here in Twin Falls and they gave me some good CC on how to improve. (Plus, all their patterns were on sale for $1!). Which brings me to my next topic.

I wanted to go buy some ribbing and thread for a specific project I had in mind, and we passed a thrift store called Mustard Seed. We don't normally go there, but we decided to stop in that day. Good thing we did, too! There was a 2-day $0.25 sell on anything you could wear! My husband and I got a good handful of awesome new clothes, including some heavy coats for this winter. I bought a ton of sweaters to turn into newborn pants to practice sewing and maybe sell on etsy. (I just opened my first store!) I also got a few project pieces that I'm excited to try out. I have so much material to practice on now! Stay tuned; I will be keeping you up to date on my projects and progress!

I might not be sewing a whole lot the next two days, though. There are Frozen Stone games (which are pretty much highland games in the winter) tonight and tomorrow, so I will be there taking pictures. I will share those after they have been edited!

Oh! There's another update! I have started doing portrait photography. I love editing the pictures a lot, so I offered to do free shoots on facebook. The response was fantastic, and I was able to add a ton of great images to my facebook portfolio!
