I'm currently finding it hard to find my sew/blog/life balance so what's the sensible thing to do? Throw another challenge into the pot of course!
Hang on, I did say 'sensible' didn't I? Hmmmm.
But what's the point of making all these clothes each week for Sew Weekly challenges if I don't wear them. It makes no sense if you think that I try to live each week as if it's my last (which means I threw out the 'keeping clothes for best' idea years ago.....life's too short) and that one of my goals for 2012 was to develop my own style and fall back in love with fashion.
I, Tempest Devyne of Fanbloomingtastic.com and Absobloominglutely.tumblr.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear at least one item of clothing or accessory I've made or refashioned each day for the duration of May 2012'
I only started following Zoe's blog, 'So Zo...What Do You Know?', consistently at the start of this year when I started trying to get my groove back but am now an avid follower. If she's not in your Google Reader, Feedler or however you get your daily blog dose, she should be. She's a highly creative seamstress who has a passion for sustainability.
I'm hoping that I have enough things in my closet to complete my version of the Me-Made-May '12.....but if you follow Zoe's blog or join in yourself you'll see all levels of commitment, from people who've been sewing for years pledging to wear complete handmade outfits every day and no repeats, so newbies like me with challenges that will still stretch but are within our limits.
I'll try and record each garment/accessory/outfit but I'm not currently sure if this will be daily photos (there's going to be a Flickr group.......and a Facebook one (spit spit yukky FB)) or perhaps I might even vlog....do you want to hear me talking? At least this might get me washing my hair and putting some slap on every day ;)
Wanna join in the fun? Pop over to Zoe's blog and sign up for Me-Made May '12 too......go on, you know you want to.
