Hello! Welcome to November!
I’m happy to start this new month with some pretty big news! :) As most of you know, I don’t just get to hang out at home refashioning all day. I, like many of you, have a full-time day job. I’ve been working at the South Carolina Arts Commission for seven years as their Grants Manager. It’s been real.
But sometimes you just need a change. I’m very excited to announce I’ve accepted a position with the United Way of the Midlands! :)
I’ll be working as the Program Assistant for the Health Council and the Financial Stability Council in UWM’s community work. This will include organization of community impact work, grant management & development, and program research. I’m greatly looking forward to helping the underserved through my work with this terrific organization!
But this doesn’t mean the refashioning can stop! Heck no! I needed to make something fast for a relaxing movie night with friends. I thought this lovely black dress would work nicely.
I’m about to make yet another top (don’t worry, I’ll get back to dresses again soon!). All I really needed was a big chop.
I could’ve taken it in, but I was in a loose & flowy mood! :) I couldn’t just leave that raw edge fraying away, so I gave it a hem.
I used the bottom scrap as a sash to give my new flowy top a bit of shape, and ran out the door…but I didn’t go it alone!
Yep, I still have my sweet little foster kid, Bandit. He’s doing great, and he really enjoyed the movie too! :) If you think you’d be a good furever (see what I did there?) home for him, you can check out his profile on Little Paws Dachshund Rescue’s website.
2013 has been an awesome year full of new things, hasn’t it? :)
