I can’t believe it’s been a month and a half since my last post.
A lot has happened over the last 45 days that has kept me from posting.
We’re still in the process of moving, and each week I spend half of my time at one house, and half at the other. With both houses being 3 hours apart, this means I’m also driving 6 hours (round trip) each week, and I feel like I’m never going to get settled. Despite, we’ll be at the new house for good at the beginning of June.
I should also mention that our daughter has dance class 3 days a week now, as she is gearing up for her upcoming recital in June.
No doubt can’t wait to finally be settled, and be able to spend more time sharing my refashions with you!
If you’re not familiar with Me-Made-May, here’s an explanation from Zoe herself:
What is MMM’14?
Me-Made-May’14 (MMM’14 for short) is a challenge designed to encourage people who sew/knit/crochet/refashion/upcycle garments for themselves to actually wear and love them. The me-made and self-stitched challenges have been taking place for over four years now and they work on both a personal and community level. The participants decide the specifics of their own challenge pledge, so that the month is appropriate and challenging for them (more on this below). A very common pledge is for a participant to aim to wear one self-stitched or refashioned garment each day for the duration of May 2014. The participants can also choose to document their challenge with daily photos (though this is in no way compulsory for taking part) and share them with other participants.
Here’s my pledge:
‘I, Jen (diaryofamadmama.wordpress.com) sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavor to wear at least one handmade (by me) item each day for the duration of May 2014 (or feature something made by me for somebody else).’
Since I’m currently at the house I’m in the process of moving out of, there aren’t a whole lot of outfits here made (or should I say “refashioned”) by me.
Since we are still in the process of packing and unpacking, I’ve decided to include outfits I made for my daughter. I plan on posting pictures each day of the month (maybe that will somewhat make up for the lack of posts these last 45 days?), but since only one house currently has internet, we’ll see how well I’ll be able to keep up with that goal. Perhaps a weekly recap?
I’m so excited to be a part of this challenge!
If you are participating in Me-Made-May, would you leave me a comment and let me know your plans?
