This was my week off, which was truly fantastic. I didn’t have to worry about deadlines or assignments or discussion boards, my time was my time. But when Wednesday rolled around I started feeling a scratchy feeling in my throat and I knew what was coming: a cold. I tried taking extra vitamin C and hoping that i would fix itself but sure enough by Friday morning I was a sniffing mess. I have managed to keep things under control with cough drops, day-time cold medicine, and a healthy obsession with orange juice.
My sickness did not slow me down on Saturday, however, because I got to have my crafting day and I completed one pretty cool project.
My nineties childhood dreams came true this week as something I ordered from Ebay arrived:
I was so excited when it came that I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I used this sweater as an inspiration, and this is what I made:
I purchased the sweatshirt used from Goodwill, then applied the studs using my new BeDazzler. After that I used a seam ripper to pull off the bottom ribbed cotton band for a raw edge (not pictured). I hope to take a picture of myself in my new sweatshirt soon. And even though the process was time consuming, it was crazy fun to do!
