Because of a post about comparing yourself to "perfect" bloggers in blogland by Erika, I decided to show the state of things around here.
No make-up and hair up. (Whenever I wash my hair I let it dry in rope braids to make it wavy.)
If I ever sew (rarely) when Henry's awake, then it usually looks like this
I make lots of mistakes that don't always make it on here like this. I started with one kind of paint near the neck and then ran out. Then I started with another paint on the top right and went left. Two different colors and one side you can see the paint fading! Please comment with tips on how to fix it!
Well, I really love Erika and how she is completely real on her blog. She is open about her life, the good (her sweet daughter and husband) and the bad (miscarriages and losing her father). She also said once how reading so many craft blogs made her compare what she was doing, so she stopped following some. I realized I had the same problem. I was following so many blogs that it took all my time and took all my creative juices. Now I only follow a select few and have felt the creativity flowing back in.
Anyway the reason I brought her up is because I finally got to meet her last week! I've wanted to meet her forever. We met up to go thrifting together and had quite and adventure.
We both got white pants/capris to dye. I tried to dye them coral and them came out kinda red. (Sorry no before picture.) I'm hoping they'll fade a little, but I don't have any red capris so I'll still wear them.
I was worried that Erika would drive about an hour and not find anything thrifting, so I made her a little circle skirt for her daughter.
How have you been real lately?
