To the left or to the right???????

I have spent a lot of time and money over the last few months on some hobbies that I have really enjoyed- but I am at a crossroads again.
Are they taking over my life or am I just adjusting to the new normal?
I honestly don't know.
I'm evaluating the direction I should take in the coming months.


I have lots of clothing that has been altered and I'm still making plans for new soap scents and colors! Both are so much fun and very addictive!!!!!

It appears that I will have some care taking responsibilities in the near future , in addition to my regular routine so I have to take account and decide what to whittle out.
I admit I'm not good at figuring it out because I have spent the last 25 or so years teaching school and not having to make these decisions.
In the meanwhile I keep on working like a crazy woman!!!!
I'm also managing to drag a few friends along the way with me!
Marilyn and I decided to do a design challenge today-
here's the deal- She bought these two linen dresses to use in a re-design project.
We decided to make it a challenge.
Here are the 2 BEFORE we alter them!
Stay tuned for the after pictures. Im thinking it will take a couple of weeks.


This is Marilyns challenge dress before she jazzes it up and here's mine!


Both are linen and nice quality with good elements.
Stay tuned!

Hello Autumn,

Altering clothing has always fascinated me..I'm not sure you should give this up! hehehe

Thanks so much for dropping by to see me...since my blood pressure is hard to manage they are doing a consult with a Pharmacist to see what other med they can switch me to that will not cause me problems....I have a hard time keeping the bottom number below 90 which is really bad on your heart in the long run. I should know something tomorrow or Friday...meanwhile, I'm continuing to take a double dose of my current med.

Hugs to you,
Steph
