Our sincere apologies! Life for Paula and me has been ridiculously crazy as of late, and as such, neither of us has had much time (well, okay -- read: none!) to do anything truly crafty.
So just to show you that yes, we are indeed both still alive, I thought I'd put together a quick post and introduce you to an amazing blog that I just love.
Jillian Owens writes a blog called ReFashionista, where she details how she takes thrift shop finds and upcycles them into really cool, funky pieces, giving them new life. I absolutely adore Jillian's creativity and her ability to see a "treasure" in what others might see as a piece of "trash". Not to mention, her bubbly personality and wacky sense of humour just sparkle right off the screen.
It also doesn't hurt that she's absolutely adorable, with a definite elfin vibe!
I have to say that Jillian is one of the bloggers out there who has inspired me to tackle some wardrobe refashions and thrift-shop finds. All right, all right. I haven't actually done any of those refashions yet -- I'm a little scared of completely messing up! -- but Jillian definitely makes me want to do them! :)
Be sure to set aside a good chunk of time to read through past posts -- I promise you'll be quickly sucked in!
Do you have any favourite "refashioner" blogs that you read? I'd love to discover more!
Thanks for stopping by -- we'll do our best to get some more content up soon!
