Off the shoulder Tee- shirt dress:. Re Post.

I am looking back through all of my DIY's and this is
was one of my favorite DIY's that I have done to date.
I am dreaming of those warm summer days where this can be worn.
A little blast from the past.

This dress is an idea I thought would be cute and easy to make for summer,
It's made out of two plain black  T- shirt. You can dress this dress up for a fun night out or 
dress it down for a day of shopping or a stroll on the beach.
Very similar to the off the shoulder dress I did for Brassy Apple HERE 
but with a twist.

Double Criss, Cross Tee DIY.

First post of 2018 and I am really excited about this New Year.
I have been  feeling a little discouraged and not really knowing what direction I wanted  to go in with my blog over the last 6 months. The death of  my Grandmother effected me to my  core...

I finally have decided to go back and re-discover all the things I love. Incorporating different DIYs  like jewelry, clothes and of course T-shirts (My favorite.)  Getting back to my creativity feeds and heals my soul, Which is what I desperately need.   If you are  going though difficult times in your life; if you feel defeated, uninspired, depressed, anxious, not really knowing why your here what your life's purpose is, this is the advice I would give.  Take some time to regroup to try and identify the feeling under why you are feeling this way. Walk, meditate, eat well, read encouraging works, listen to encouraging people and song, seek professional help if you have to. Your spirit is trying to grow during this time, to become stronger; help it grow by feeding it what it wants. If you do not know what feeds your soul, do some soul searching.  Try and identify  what brings you happiness; Is it music, art, writing,  cooking, teaching,  nature, gardening,  what makes your feel good?.  Still can't find what you need?, think about when you were a kid, what was the one thing that brought you joy.  Your soul will know when you find it, cultivate that, work it into a job. Dare to dream for it.  You will come through it I promise.  It may take time, but it will happen.  You will be different and you will be stronger.

So now lets do this Tee Shirt.

The Grind of 2017 and the promise for 2018!

Going back to the beginning of why I started this challenge in the first place is bitter sweet for me. When my Grandmother passed away it was one of the hardest life experiences I have ever had to deal with to date. It put me in this unfamiliar place of pain, the feeling of helplessness, anxiety, insomnia, and a all over feeling of sadness that I just couldn't seem to shake. When I researched dealing with a  death of a loved one there were all sorts of suggestions, from therapy, meds, time.  One morning after a rough night and waking up not being able to breathe I decided that I had to make  change. I put on my walking gear and I have never looked back..This was kind of like prescribing myself medicine, but instead of taking  pills I decided to work out all of my issues through exercise and meditation. I would walk everyday for one hour no matter what. I cleared my mornings and started. No exceptions. No excuses. I was invested and determined and that's a powerful combination.  All of my anxiety slowly disappeared and slowly I became sane again Every morning for the last 209 days, give or take a day, due to Hurricanes, traveling to bury my Grandmother, or the latest which is a nasty, nasty cold  I have only missed about 10 days total.,
I have so many more goals for this 2018 year to push myself even further. To push this 50 year old body to its top potential: Mentally, Spiritually and Physically.

During  this journey I have lost about 18 - 20 pounds  regained my confidence and pulled though a really tough time. All in all I would say its a win, win situation.

Was it easy ? No!!!  but so, so worth every step...
Here is to many more goals to be met in 2018 including going back to regular blog post.. Which is over due...

Thank you all for  your support this last year,  it has meant the world to me and gotten me through some pretty dark days.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Love to all of you.
