As you all know, this weekend is the time for Halloween to shine and as such I was working to a bit of a request with this week’s frock. Asked to make a Poison Ivy costume, much delight was had…and whilst it did turn out a little wood nymphy…i feel it was nonetheless tremendous…
Excitingly, and most entertainingly, this week I got to make a dress for Charlotte Lynch. Whilst this quiz etc is usually uploaded during the week, on about Wednesday I found myself up to my ankles in a pool of chaos (with unexpected venturings, a slip in my organisational skillz…and totally getting a new job) and thus stuff only got sorted at quite the last minute! However, that aside…
Charlotte Lynch is only 18 yet already shows signs of becoming a Brislebrity. One of the creators behind the tremendoid BATS magazine, Charlotte is not only an incredible writer – but also sells some of her freestyle dance moves to Lady Gaga…with whom she has developed a close working friendship.
Check her out!
Hey there lovelies!
So this week I am making a frock for the delightful Caitlin! Caitlin is from Rixons Hair Salon, and is part of the glorious team that has been donating their time and efforts to making the girl’s look their very best each and every week.
Caitlin is truly a cutie pie! She loves ballerinas and sunshine…and if I had a picnic then I would definitely want her there!
I want to say a massive thank you to avant card, who are delightfully printing and distributing 20,000 postcards for ‘i make. you wear it.’ all around Australia. Their donation is incredibly appreciated. Keep an eye out for the postcard, which features dress 6 (aka that one with the big red face on it) as well as all their other fun postcards by avant card.
hurrah and hurray!
Hi there friends!
So this week’s lady is Jade…and she is another co-worker of mine getting the ‘i make. you wear it.’ fun fiesta. Now I have said it before, and I shall say it again, Jade is the Beyonce of BORDERS chermside. She is the only lady at our work who shelves, sorts, and lifts multiple piles of crap about the place whilst still rocking out some bedazzled shoulders, epic gold bling, and various badass floral hairdos. She sashay’s about the store prettying things up like it’s nobodies business, and if you get in her way…let’s face it…she will tear you down. And no one wants that. Because if she doesn’t like you then she won’t bake you any red velvet cupcakes…and no one needs that.
Check her out…i do…L.O.L.Z!
so much spam. always so so so much spam.
yesterday i had a spam comment that just said: i am very friendly chicken fire sunday drum.
WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? What are you trying to offer me??? At least try and coerce me into giving you my bank account details or provide me with clever, albeit slightly mispelt, reasons why i should give you my left kidney.
spammers you suck. you make me feel like this guy:
i just had to let that out…dresses are still fun, and i’ll be posting this week’s model details shortly. xoxo
Hey there friends,
I would like to offer a massive ‘huzzayah and hurraya!’ to my parentals for their swift exeunt of me from house, to backyard, to the classy garage/studio space i am currently occupying. Whilst I am still eagerly awaiting the construction of furniture and some electricity, the space is proving delightful for work purposes. I learnt to make an elastic waisted skirt tonight. How terrific – I don’t think such things could have occurred in my backyard…unless i was seeking to make an elastic waisted grass skirt…but I’m not hawaiian, so I probs wouldn’t. God, I’m funny.
But despite my newfound spacial glory, the torrential rain that has been occurring this week has driven the surrounding insect life to seek refuge in my cave of wonders. Whilst I try to embrace most living creatures, i believe that there is no place in our world for things that look tiny poos with too many legs. So naturally, I lined my garage with mortein, and continued on with my work.
Since doing this I have noticed that a few cockroaches and some other creepy friends, have been sent to the Baby Jesus. Whilst I am glad that they have past on, I feel that their deaths may have contributed to the creation of a slight pong…a pong that smells distinctly like wee. Whilst it could just be a musty rain smell, I fear that I have flooded my new space with the scent of death – and am obviously a little concerned. I’m considering a genteel, well perfumed exorcism.
But regardless! The real reason I started this post was to share with you all that I have discovered how to make pom poms. I want to show you all so you too can become crazy craft people. I found this clip on youtube and am, on a scale of 1 to pom pom, pretty excited about it. Have a lookie!!
Now don’t worry guys, I am totally ‘ON’ the whole whiffy garage thing. Airing it out and seeing to the introduction of air-fresheners, I am hoping that soon my crafty abode will smell like a daffodils armpit.
