I finally took a photo of the dress I made! Without further ado, here it is:
Maggy gave me on the ledge all the way to the right and the cool chair toward the left of the photo that I got for $12 at a weird second-hand type store. Making the dress was so fun and almost too easy. I can't wait to make more clothes! I have so much inspiration and motivation right now, the only thing I'm lacking is the money for the material :)
I also have to post a picture of the necklace Clint got me. I absolutely adore it and wear it all the time even if it doesn't match. He is so good at picking stuff out for me and puts a lot of thought into it. This necklace is hands down my most prized possession.
Speaking of possessions, I gave away half of my book collection yesterday. I've recently read a tiny little bit about minimalism from one of my favorite blogs in the world, and I came across this quote: "Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful of believe to be beautiful." -William Morris, 1834. With that philosophy in mind, I'm taking a second look at everything I own. I started with my books because those were easy - I can go to the library for any of the books I gave away - but I'm anxious to do a more thorough and deep minimizing in my apartment. For more great minimalist quotes, go here.
Well, there's so much more I want to tell you about, but I have to get to work. Until next time!
