Creative New Year's Resolutions
I don't know about you, but I still succumb to the lure of new year's resolutions. Of course, making more time to be creative always fall to the top of my list. This year, I decided to really challenge myself and take part in a sewing challenge. I signed-up for the Wardrobe Refashion Challenge. Because I'm a wimp, I only signed on for two months, but I'm hoping to improve my sewing skills and jump start my creativity while I save a bit of cash. Not that I buy that many clothes for myself. I don't really like the way anything looks on me lately. Which leads me to my next resolution-get healthy (read lose weight). I think I've only had one year in my adult life when that wasn't a necessary resolution.
What are your plans for the new year? If you have committed to being more creative, be sure to check-out my upcoming newsletter as I'll be listing some of my favorite creative challenge websites. The newsletter will go out next week and I'll give you a heads-up when it does. In the meantime, what are your resolutions? Or have you decided not to play into resolutions this year?
By the way, here's my Wardrobe Refashion Pledge:
I, Laura Bray, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, and recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!
