I mentioned that I scored some great stuff thrift shopping with mom and that I haven't wanted to photograph myself wearing my new duds. Here is part of the problem. I haven't had batteries for my camera and have been snapping everything with the hipstamatic. I can't put the phone on a tripod or the hipstamatic on a timer, so here I am attempting to photograph myself in this vintage skirt.
Didn't work out so well.
I LOVE this skirt. It is 100% cotton, a sort of mustardy yellow/green with a gorgeous print and it's from India. It was about $3 I think.
It's too big, and too long.
It was a circle skirt, which I loved about it.
I had to cut the length out of the top so that the print wouldn't be cut off.
What I didn't take into account was that the waist would now be about 3 x's wider!
I will still be remaking this skirt, but sadly it will no longer be a circle skirt. It will be a gathered full skirt. I'll take "real" pictures when I get it done. I do have batteries for my camera now.
- I am home this morning and close at work tonight. I was there early the past three days and kind of liked it. Day time seems to go by faster there for some reason. I'm noticing that when I'm home I get overwhelmed by all that I am behind on. Household chores, paperwork, jewelry, my sewing pile that is a big mess, yard work, etc. When I'm at work at least I'm not thinking about all that. Sort of ironic, isn't it?!
- Frank and I were able to go out on the trail and jog (!) with Lucy last night. It felt great. For whatever reason I felt like jogging on the trail was easier than concrete or a treadmill. I felt quite empowered, but desperately need new running shoes. The weather was perfect, the sunset beautiful and I felt good!
- I turn 36 a month from tomorrow and am not feeling too good about that. I feel out of shape and am ready to feel better about myself and my health. We are considering investing in a juicer. Anybody out there juicing? Any tips?
