Updating a plain hand-me-down.

My mom gave me this denim skort that had a rip in it to fix and keep if I wanted.  I love denim, and I am sure that denim must be God's most favorite fabric.  So... of course I am keeping it!  But it was a little (or a lot) on the blah side.  I wonder what could be done about that?  Silly me.  Embroidery of course!

I have a new flower design from Lynnie Pennie that I was just dying to try out.  I was reminded of this design by Just Jo's blog entry From Shirt to Skirt.

Here is the skort before any embellishment:

Then one flower:

But, I didn't think just one lonely flower would do.  So...

Now I have a new-to-me, fun skort to wear anywhere I want to make a cute fashion statement.  Maybe I could even call this "upcycling"?

This is my entry for
Transformation Thursday


  1. That is so cute! I'm useless when it comes to re-doing clothing of any sort!!!

    Don't be afraid of Mod Podge, it is soooo much fun. Once you start you can't stop, if my husband stands in one spot for too long he may get mod podged too:)

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
