Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Find A Uniform That Suits You!
Pantyhose are not my thing! I remember as a child that my mom used to wear pantyhose with everything - skirts, pants, shorts - you name it. I have to admit that that seemed like torture to me! Maybe there was a time when the idea of putting on pantyhose seemed grown up and like a treat, but that time is long ago and far away! Now I find that any excuse not to wear pantyhose is a good excuse (and my mom has shed her pantyhose as well - except for special occasions). So what clothes do I like? Well I definitely would be a candidate for What Not To Wear (a show where people with dreadful taste in clothing are given an opportunity to be guinea pigs for style consultants Stacy and Clinton - quite entertaining!). When I am not traveling for work, my go-to cold-weather uniform usually involves a pair of black stretch leggings and some type of oversized comfy shirt make of a soft material like fleece or cotton (nothing itchy please!). On warm-weather days I am now turning to a new uniform...overalls!!!!! I had this vision that I just couldn't get out of my head - overalls with tank tops! So onto ebay I went to purchase a week's worth of bib overalls that I could get paint and ink on and be comfy in all day long! I love the idea of no tight waistbands and lots of pockets for walking the dog! There may be some days where it is just too hot outside for overalls, but on any day when the temp is favorable, you will find me hanging out looking like Farmer Brown :) It's important to find a uniform that suits you and allows you to be you! :)
Today's mini book was made to match the thank you card I shared earlier this week. I am loving the combination of Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe (yum!) and Baked Brown Sugar (double yum!)! I love making these mini books to record thoughts, lists, notes and in this case, sweet, sweet moments! The sentiment is from Happy Days and the other supplies were listed in my post earlier this week. Here's a look at the book lying flat. I use recycled paper for the inside and just add a small stamped image to hide some of the printing on the pages. I hope you like it! P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment on my blog this week telling me what you do to keep your craft space clean! I will be choosing one lucky winner on Sunday to receive a free subscription to the month of July for Craft Project Central! Good luck!
