staying sane

In order to keep myself sane, I decided that I am going to do some sort of DIY at least once a month. It is important to do what you love every once in awhile – we tend to get caught up in school work and real work but the things that keep us sane are the things we love to do and NEED to do. My thing is DIYs. I remember the first time I discovered what a “DIY” was… It made my fashion designer dreams a heck of a lot easier. My DIYs involved cutting pants into shorts, and gluing patterns, studs and fabric onto them. I turned my ugly or not used shirts into something cute and trendy. Any trash I found, I wanted to revamp it. I would go to the mall and see what was trending and see how I could turn what I own into that piece so I didn’t have to spend money that I didn’t have because I didn’t have a job. I have a job now but still don’t feel like spending money on certain things. This is a great transition into this months DIY. I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw Shannon Barker in the CUTEST SWEATSHIRT EVER – I had to have it. So I looked it up and found the great Mink Pink sweatshirt – it was $80 and I was like HECK NO I COULD DRAW THAT MYSELF. Then I realized, I can draw that myself… So that’s what I did.

Pieces include: fabric markers in black, yellow, and pink and your sweatshirt of choice from wherever in whatever color you want! – the brilliance of DIYing – it’s all up to you.

And here is the finished product… TA DAAAAAAA

Stay tuned for next months DIY πŸ™‚
