DIY: Sweater to Cardigan

(Currently packing for my screen writing retreat. Which means I will be MIA for about a week. I will try to update the tumblr and twitter. In the mean time....)

I got a request in my ask box on tumblr:

(The sweater they are talking about is here) So of course I had to do a DIY. Here it is done twice.

1. thermal sweater 2. turtle neck

2 ways to cut the sweater:

1. cutting a long a straight edge 2. folding in half & cut

2 ways to jazz it up:

1. sew on some buttons 2. with a turtle neck: make a collar

now wear and enjoy

Both sweaters were found at Salvation Army. The thermal was $4.50 and the floral one was $2.85

another time

Most people think the time they are living in isn't good/cool enough. That they wish they could live in another decade. I am one of those people. So besides Chicago during the 1920's I think I would of loved the late 50's early 60's.

Maybe it's because I am obsessed with Mad Men (or the fashion...)

breakfast joint.

I have many many many jobs. Four to be exact. And one of them is a waitress at a breakfast joint. It's a lot of fun actually. I love my co-workers, free food, the regulars are really down to earth. Sometimes it does feel like being on a sitcom.

It's a funky place. Usually, I don't really dress up for it because everything I wear gets dirty, but today I thought why not. It's the first day of spring. (But you wouldn't be able to tell by this Seattle weather...)

There's something seriously wrong.

I've been sick before, but NOT THIS SICK. My throat has been bothering me like crazy since I came back from Denver. Fever, coughing, chest aches. Slowly recovering. and I mean Very very s l o w l y recovering.

I am so procrastinating like crazy. I hate being sick because things begun to pile up that I need to do and since I am sick I don't want to do anything. This silly and stupid endless cycle. This blog is not the only thing I am slacking on. So please, excuse the absents.
