exciting news!

AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SHOW YOU! You won't be hearing much from me till everything is done. There may be some time over the weekend that my site is down. Don't panic. It's all for the greater good. You guys, it's going to be amazing! 

My lovely Google Friend Connect followers, I'm making the switch to Wordpress. This sadly means that you won't be able to use this way to follow Lazy Saturdays starting Monday. I apologize if this is an inconvenience to anyone. BUT I promise the switch from Blogger to Wordpress is a great move. I hope I don't loose you after the switch. You're going to love the new site. You still will be able to subscribe via RSS and Bloglovin'. 

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! We're trying to make this as seamless a transition as possible. Be sure to head back here Monday for the big unveil! I have butterflies in my stomach.

upcycled thursdays: printed shirtdress

This was such a fun upcycle! This purple dress has been sitting in my closet for years. Yes, years. I bought it from Target at some crazy low price thinking I would wear it all the time. Fast forward a few years and it hasn't been worn once. It was time to give it a new life.
I started by dying the dress with Rit dye. Then I created a polka dot template and used fabric dye to carefully paint each circle. It took a lot of time and patience, but I adore this new dress!
This was the first article of clothing that I've printed this way. I must say, I've become a fan! It was a ton of fun and now I have more projects racing thru my head. Have you ever printed anything?

23 weeks

Not a whole lot going on around here baby/pregnancy wise. Just enjoying the little kicks that are getting stronger and stronger. So while things are a little boring around here, I'm going to leave you with a not-so-boring video my dear sister-in-law Tamra shared with me... you will enjoy. I promise. I laughed so hard I cried.

a colorful tip

Every time I go into a home improvement store, or any place that sells paint, I grab a few paint chips that catch my eye. I now have a collection of paint chips in a variety of colors. Now whenever I'm working on a project, from home to apparel, and I need help deciding on colors, I whip out my paint chips and feel inspired. Best thing about this... paint chips are free! Hope this helps you add a little more color into your life.

a 20 week bump

Goodness you guys. I've hardly put any baby bump pictures up! These were actually taken a couple weeks ago. My belly is a lot more belly-er now. I'm at 22 weeks. On the downhill! And this little lad is growing like crazy. Which means I'm growing like crazy! More pictures to come. Promise. I'll stop being a slacker. 

Let's take a moment to talk about my pants. They're maternity! What?! Aren't they awesome? I got them from Old Navy and I'm sold on maternity pants now. Talk about comfort! I'll be wearing these to Thanksgiving dinner this year. {Yes, my baby is due in July. No, I won't be pregnant in November. Don't care.} I tried the hair-tie-thru-the-button-hole trick one time and felt like every one I saw knew that my pants were secretly bursting open and my gut was hanging out. That was the first and last time I used that trick. I bought maternity pants soon after. Anyway, these have become my lucky pants. They're what I wore to find out that it's a little boy in there and when I wear them he gives me extra kicks thru out the day. I think I'll pack these in my hospital bag for labor day. I know I won't need them, but I'll take comfort in just knowing they are there.

trashion show 2012

Things are moving at full speed around here! The trashion show is coming along and I've started fitting models for their dresses. The show is just over one month away and I CAN'T WAIT to show you my next round of trashion dresses! In the meantime, I do an upcycling portion for the show and you can expect to see some of those projects very soon on here. 

In other news, my blog redesign has gone to the Photoshop/Illustrator stage. It's moving slowly, but it's gonna be good. 

And in even better news, the little mister has started kicking me A LOT. Nothing makes me more happy right now than to wake up and feel a few little kicks before I get out of bed. I love the kid and I can't wait to meet him.
