Hello Kitty amigurumi for a friend | Random assortment Hello Kitty amigurumi for a friend | Random assortment I've been thinking about making an amigurumi Hello Kitty for the longest time but I always ended up making different things.

Sewing

I will never live long enough to read, learn, and do EVERYTHING I want to know about and experience. That anxiety may be why I have an incredibly hard time just sitting and doing nothing for fear of wasting a precious moment of opportunity. Even when sitting, something has to be going on....reading, writing, drawing, creating.... That being said, you can imagine I am about the worst passenger on a roadtrip in regards to contributing any sort of lengthy chatter...unless of course, I'M driving. I actually look forward to being locked in the passenger seat for a few hours knowing that I get that window of time to read, write, draw, create without any chance of getting pulled away to do something else. The setup in your car can serve as quite the workbench, my friends! courage to create: July 2009 courage to create: July 2009

Always Chrysti - Always Chrysti - 100+ Ways to reuse your old sweaters! The (probably-somewhat-boring) Backstory: My Friends, I have been posessed. Over the last week, I have been bitten by that nagging-can't-stop-myself-until-it's-finished-doesn't matter-how-many-other-things-are-going-undone madly organizing, cleaning out every nook and cranny bug. Some of you may think this is a good thing - but truly, it's overtaken my life. The things that have pressing importance NOW, have been woefully waylaid. Stupid OCD.

Julie Ann Art: Tutorials for Recycling T-Shirts So way way back, in June, I wrote this Studio Organization post, about starting the process of organizing my studio by cleaning out the closet full of junk. Well, it's September and...let's just say the closet is a work in progress. Some of the things that are taking up space in the closet are shirts that I never wear anymore.

With new pets come new sewing projects! As much as i'd love to make everything out of wool for our new guinea pigs, it is just not practical for all the washing these things will need to endure, so I made a bunch of fleece accessories. Fleece at the fabric store can get expensive, but the thrift stores are full of fleece, just waiting to be upcycled! I found 2 different big double layer (twice the fabric!) Resweater Resweater
