At long last, I present a tutorial for the tank dress I made a few weeks ago before the end of the semester blindsided me. I’ve been seeing these tank+patterned skirt all over the place lately, but frequently they were too short or too short-waisted for my particular proportions. After some googling, and studying the really excellent skirt tutorial and t-shirt dress tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff and the skirt with pockets tutorial at Freshly Picked, I decided that even my fairly rudimentary sewing skills could handle this project. And since I celebrated my height yesterday for Dress Your Best week, it seems appropriate to post a sewing project prompted by my need for a longer-than-in-stores dress.
How To: Give your old t-shirts a second life. Sorry dust rag pile! photos: kirsten for we heart this I love using simple materials to make something fun and innovative. The supplies for this bracelet DIY are really basic , so there’s a REALLY good chance you own all of them already.
In an increasingly globalized world, it’s still sometimes shocking to see just how disparate our lives are compared with other human beings around the world. A book of photographs by Peter Menzel called "Hungry Planet: What the World Eats" ("©Peter Menzel www.menzelphoto.com . Ten Speed Press, published in 2005) makes a relevant point with great irony: at a time when hundreds of millions of people don't have enough to eat, hundreds of millions more are eating too much and are overweight or obese. In observing what six billion eat for dinner the authors note, "Today, more people are overweight than underweight."
The right fragrance worn in the right way is the most seductive thing in the world—whether it's a light, flowery eau de toilette that seems impulsive and whimsical or a musky scent that's as sexual as it is provocative. The problem is that love, passion, and romance don't come in one universal bottle. To choose the flavor that suits you, first decide what you want to project and then wear it in a way that plays to its strengths—there's a big difference between the delicate trail of white flowers drifting through your hair and a spicy oriental on your décolletage.

By Dylan Thomas (biography in Wikipedia) Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
It's hard to believe, but it's about that time of the year when we start thinking of the holiday gifting! So like every year before, I'm looking for DIY's to keep from breaking the bank.

Now... the next step for me...to get a sewing machine!!!
giorgia-victoria-deactivated201 asked: have you stopped posting? I thought I had. I’ve at least taken a short break. I went out of town recently. My storage site booted me and that is mostly the reason why I have not posted. But I do intend to!
I made this thing. It’s pretty cool. It’s a convertible dress that’s basically a circle and two straps, so it’s really easy, inexpensive, and crazy versatile. It’s been around forever and everyone seems to love it (in fact, part of the reason I’m posting this is to answer some questions for people I’ve run into), and I can hardly believe how close I came to not making it at all.

Time never stops and so does our life. But still we sometimes find ourselves in some situations where we feel numb, the time stops for that particular moment. A photographer experiences emotions while taking a shot.

Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls.
Für Elise is a very famous classical piece of music written by Ludwig Von Beethoven in 1808. It is also known as 'Bagatelle in A Minor'. The opening part of Fur Elise is easy and fun to play. It uses very basic chords mixed with some single note lines.
The A Chord is the first chord we will teach you here at I Play Music. Is pretty easy and you will have no problem mastering it and feeling comfortable enough to move on. We believe that it is the easiest chord and hopefully you will too. The most common way to play this chord consist on having the first, second and third fingers all almost in a row in the second fret. Another way to do it is to swap your first and second fingers. We encourage you to try both ways so you can have a feel for yourself and determine which of the two is better.
