Fashion + Trash = Trashion

Confession: I like to make things out of trash. Especially clothes. It makes my heart flutter. How did I come to find this hidden talent? you ask. Well, here's the thrilling story....


Once upon a time, there was a lovely lady that started an art gallery. I happened to know said lady. She invited me to be apart of the opening show! What! Me? Heck yes! I said. I skipped all the way home with birds singing behind me with visions of art show stardom in my head. Suddenly, I realized that I was a fashion designer and no one would really care to come and see a t-shirt in an art show. I could draw, but my drawing were definitely not gallery worthy. I smacked my head against the wall several times and cursed myself for jumping into too deep waters. What in the world was I going to do? I continued to smack my head against the wall till magically the picture of Marilyn Monroe in the potato sack fell into my hands. I said to myself, I could do better than that. And Viola! I had my art show idea! I entered my first art show and have not looked back. A few pictures in the paper, several more art gallery appearances and two fashion shows later I can safely say I still have no clue what I'm doing. But I'm lovin' it! And that's how I became a trashion designer and am living happily ever after.

Going Green

 I have two boring white sweaters sitting in my closet. Their biggest trick... staying nicely folded day after day. Time to show them the outside world.

Cue the green dye...

...and SHAZAM! It even dyed the buttons.

I wanted a little more zing to my sweater, so I puled out all my green buttons and embroidery thread and went to town.
