Hey everyone! Happy Friday!
I hope you’ve all had a great week so far.
My week has been crazy busy!
My family is going through a lot of changes as of late and it’s been a very stressful and overwhelming time.
When I feel overwhelmed, exercising helps to release some of the stress and tension I’m feeling.
Prayer also helps, because I tend to be a major worrier, and it’s usually me worrying about things that I have no control over. I found that when I remember to stop worrying and pray instead, it really helps my mental well-being as well.
Finally, a third thing that really helps me when I’m in a state of stress-induced panic, is having a creative outlet…like refashioning! There’s just something about creating that helps take the focus off of all of the other chaos and commotion going on around you.

My husband lost a lot of weight last year, and I wound up with all of his too-big dress shirts (Lucky me!).
And so I decided to refashion this plain black one into a little black dress.
I wasn’t quite sure where to begin with this monstrosity… Continue reading
I’ve seen a lot of polka-dotted peplum dresses on Pinterest lately.
So when I saw this polka-dot number for 49-cents, I knew just what to do with it!
Hmm, not my idea of a good time!
The thing that I liked about this dress (other than the polka dots), was the fact that it completely buttoned up, making it easy to refashion. Continue reading
For this week’s refashion I thought about doing something patriotic! (And quick because I’m sure most of us would rather be at the beach, am I right?)
I wanted to use up some scraps along with some old duds that I already had. (I kinda feel like I’m cheating because only one of the items in this refashion cost 49-cents, the rest I already had, but oh well!)
So to start, I grabbed these shirts…
Pretty patriotic ‘eh?
Each of these had a problem of some sort… Continue reading
