i just made three skirts last week out of things i had at home.

now i have 3 more ideas but no supplies and no money for them.

whan whan whan.

school is getting awesome. our next assignment in the actual sewing class is this amazing high waisted skirt. hopefully we bring in our own fabrics and i can own it after.

also in our drawing class the final assignment is super fun.

we have to basically create two looks/outfits. determine what they will be worn for (cocktail party, work, night out) and then do a technical drawing. find photos that inspired it and then make a sheet with the fabrics and colors we'd use and whatever other garments.

i love mine. i will try and scan it before i hand it in.
weeeee

new wardrobe want!

leather shorts.

sorrrry

my lack of computer has really put a dent on my blog posts and tumblr and even twitter. i pretty much only check gmail and fb from my phone.
terrible.

i am in school and loving it. learning to make clothes. today we got to pick our manequins and set up the "bolducs" i dont know the term in english but its all those lines that show where to measure. i was lucky and got one that is almost my body measurments which means the things we make might fit me! how exciting.



i love life. everything is great. the only thing lacking is more time with friends but i usually get to see a few of them often enough. and now sergio and i have some game nights with other couples which is great. also i expect to see more of meaghan with our boys leaving us on tour together for a bit.

i am also hoping to get a new computer soon.

so many projects in the works. including making messenger bags with the boyfriend. the three size prototypes have been made and now its just a matter of some small details and we should be good to go, so much fun.

so yeah that was my quick update. in this case no news really is good news.
my mom is on her way back from the airport. she was shooting in paris and i cant wait to see the goodies she brought back.



ps. i dont think ive ever been this happy in life for no specific reason.
life is just good and im loving it.

a real post!

i realize tumblr may not always be the best blogging platform.
here is a real post that talks about real things and not just a cute puppy pic or some babe model.

i really liked olivia's "stay home" banner. as seen below.



so i had at first intended on making one myself.
but my machine is broken and i decided to treat myself and get one made by her friend charlie that made this one.

it seems almost a frivolous expense when i am pretty sure i could make one. but at the same time it works for me. mine will say "yes you can"
i can be pretty defeatist at times and the extra encouragement could be perfect and now its even better cause i wont have made it for myself.
only 20 something days till school. i really need to get the machine fixed. whats a seamstress without a sewing machine. not much, ill tell you that.

ok so last night i went to meet up with stef and laura to have some brews on the patio.
a friend of lauras joined us and he was with some guys playing a show here. this guy dean recognized me instantly from meeeting me 5 years ago. it took me a bit but i remmebered him. i am still stunned he remembered/recognized me.
what happened to my brain? i used to remember everyone.
anyways drank some more and went to their show. it was pretty sweet. poppy stuff. reminded everyone of the loved ones which is a good thing. there even were some pop punk jumps. which are awessssommeeee
and then i embarassed myself by introducing myself to some guy as his friends gf. which is kind of awkward. ah my life.

oh i will upload the phtos from last night when i get some food in my stomach. i managed to convince the office driver to get some bagels and smoked salmon instead of danishes this morning. i cant wait. ( iamhungoverfml.)

what a boring "comeback" post.
i promise, pics are coming.
