Upcycle for Fun and Fashion! « 30 Days at a Time.

My friend and fellow blogger Shelley Seale mentioned the upcycled t-shirt that I wore to Community Yoga a couple of weekends ago.

I love Shelley’s year of blogging about her 30-day experiments. She’s currently doing 30 days of learning, and she learned how to upcycle an old t-shirt into a cool messenger bag by taking a local class. Click the link above to check it out!

My girly cut t-shirt with the front and back woven lattice work was something I picked up at Austin City Limits, at Drive By Press‘ booth. It has a screen print of a Victrola on the front.

This video shows how to do the cutting and weaving. I’m not usually that crafty, but I’m going to make myself some out of thrift store t-shirts. They’re especially great to wear over yoga tops before and after class.

And by the way, I take delight in posting a more profound post like the previous one about recovering from trauma and following it with a light-hearted fun post. Why? Because I can.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well, then I contradict myself.

New 30-Day Project: The Month of Living on Discounts (via 30 Days at a Time)

My friend Shelley Seale is doing a series of 30-day projects this year. She’s calling it “the year of living consciously”. She’s worn no more than 6 items of outerwear, eaten only locally grown food, meditated, practiced happiness and giving and living sustainably for 30 days at a time, and then incorporated what works into her life.

Now she’s starting 30 days of living on discounts. Can’t wait to learn more about living well frugally!

New 30-Day Project: The Month of Living on Discounts Today I start my newest 30-Day experiment – using only coupons, Groupons and other discounts on everything I buy. I already take some good advantage of things like Groupons, but this 30-day period I will push it to the limit to see if I can live for an entire month doing only that with everything I buy. A guy named Josh Stevens lived off Groupon for a entire year, and blogged about it. Keep reading for more rules and guidelines that I've laid out … Read More
