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!!
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! ♥
Oooohhhh! I can’t WAIT to see what you are going to make out of that jacket!!
Isn’t it fabulous??? I have so many ideas! 🙂
Such a great idea! Have fun!!!
I will!!! Thanks, Beth! 🙂
What fun! It will be fun to see what wonderful things you’ll create! 🙂
Thank you! I have L-O-N-G list of ideas! We’ll see which ones I can make work! 🙂
I’m really looking forward to seeing what you make…and what fabulous goodies I get back! 🙂
Have fun my creative and crafty (in a good way) friend.
I will!!! 🙂
Thank you! It’s fun that it all fell together like that! 🙂
I would be terrified of cutting up that gorgeous jacket. I know you will do it justice and then some. I can’t wait to see what you do with it.
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! 🙂
Fantastic… cannot wait to see the finished article
I think I can get LOTS of projects from this amazing fabric . . . we’ll see how it all turns out! 🙂
This is so cool! I can’t wait to see what great things you make from it! You always have such great ideas!
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. 🙂
oooh…..can’t wait to see what you create!!
Only one item so far . . . but my list is SOOOOOOO long!!! 🙂
I always know what you post will be another fantastic (no one else thought of) creation! Congratulations ~ Mary
Aren’t you sweet!!! 🙂 Thank you, Mary!
Oh what a fun idea!!! I love reading As Time Goes…Buy. It’s so nice the two of you are collaborating on this idea.
Happy anniversary, too. I can’t wait.
Thank you! I’m just now getting started, but I have SO many ideas . . . probably too many! 🙂 It will be fun, I know! 🙂
I can’t wait to see the results. What fun.
Wow, after seeing what you were able to do with the sun dress, I can’t wait to see what happens to this jacket! So much potential!
It’s pretty amazing isn’t it!!! I know I’ll have fun with it! 🙂
🙂 Thank you!
Gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see what you make !!
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! 🙂
Beautiful! and so cheery too! I bet you will find something fab to make out of this!
Can’t wait to get started! 🙂
