So after a well-intentioned spurt of posting around the time I signed up for Wardrobe Refashion, summer hit...and I was working on designing and helping to make costumes for a show (Bat Boy, The Musical), doing my regular job/research work, and preparing for an opera workshop that my group is doing next week...wait, actually it starts the day after tomorrow with a performance next week. I'm not singing or anything like that, just doing tech and programming/visuals/robotics help.
But in any case, I got a bit distracted from the whole crafting/refashioning thing. I'm going to get back to more regular posting and making. Most of my refashioning energy now is going into making one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from old, broken, and/or vintage jewelry and buttons. I even set back up the Etsy shop that I had opened a year or so ago and then never really did anything with. I've also developed a slightly worrisome Ebay habit, resulting in a number of beautiful vintage patterns, vintage trims, and random bunches of junk jewelry coming my way. However, that's stopped now. I have to now make some wonderful stuff with my stash! And then put it on Etsy and try to share it... I can only wear so many pieces of jewelry, after all.
For fun, a couple of pictures of some of the costumes I designed for Bat Boy (credit Jax Kirtley):
