As you know, I’ve been having tons of fun with my “What Can You Make With A . . .” series (see page in header), so I MUST share who inspired me to offer a “makeover” for my one year blog anniversary prize! Following one of my posts, I had the following comment conversation with my blogging friend Laura of As Time Goes . . . Buy:

Laura:  Okay, that’s it. I can’t take it anymore. Either you are going to have to adopt me or I am sending you all my old clothes so you can turn them in to cool new things. Of course you’ll have to send the new things back to me. :)

Me: Actually, now I want to do that!!! Because you have such a beautiful wardrobe, I can only imagine what fun I’d have! :) Send me an item you no longer wear . . . and I’ll work my magic and mail it back to you, and we can both blog about it. Okay??? :)

Laura: Seriously?! That is so cool! Now I will be up all night thinking about what I can send…but I have a thought. I’ll email you tomorrow. I’m soooo excited!! :D

Me: Yay!!! Can’t wait! :)

So, I thought if Laura would think this was fun, maybe someone else would, too. Thank you, Laura! And check out the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G jacket Laura sent (and click on the photo to see the beautiful embroidery!) . . . all the way from Australia to Kansas, USA! I’ll be posting on it sometime in November . . . stay tuned! ♥

    • I was, too, when I first saw it! I almost just asked if I could buy it from Laura! 🙂 But scissors have met fabric, so here we go! 🙂

    • Thank you, Julie! And I just checked out your new Craft Nighter’s blog . . . can’t wait to see what everyone creates! 🙂

      • Yeah me too, not everyone is into posting pics, but I plan to bring my camera and take pictures at the next craft night and I will post them. 🙂

    • I’m just buried with work right now (a situation to which I know YOU can relate!!!) so it’s on hold for a bit . . . but I can’t wait to go for it! 🙂
