Summer Getaway to Western WA State. Port Ludlow, Port Townsend, Boating, Crabbing, Hurricane Ridge

Earth Day is this week so I decided I wanted to share why I do what I do.  In college I took a sustainability class that I loved. We were assigned an eight week project where we had to lower our carbon footprint. While most of the class changed light bulbs […]

Refashions are one of my favorite things to make. I found this ginormous Hawaiian muumuu at the GW Clearance Center for pennies on the dollar. To make a refashion happen, it helps to pick out something with a ton of fabric. It’s always easy to cut away fabric, but much […]
