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

040512.1
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?
