As if I didn’t have enough on my plate (the son’s Non-firmation party in May (and sewing my outfit), the husbands 40th party this month (and choosing the outfit), my shop, writing instructions for the tee, oh and the full time teaching job, the t-shirt project, the garden, running 5k, the everyday cooking and cleaning) I have decided to participate in the Me Made May ’12 challenge hosted by Zoe.
The reason? I want to challenge myself into trying out different outfits (it’s easy to get stuck in a jeans-and-tshirt rut when teaching middleschoolers!) and also discover where the holes in my wardrobe are. For instance. I think I need a kind of skirt, that I’d be able to wear with flats to work. Any ideas for that?
So the plan is to wear something self-made (sewn, knitted or re-fashioned) every day for the month of May 2012. It can be just a pair of socks or a t-shirt (and since I have so many of those already sewn, it might actually be do-able) And also to get pictures taken every day. And to try out new outfits once in a while.
So here we go:
‘I, Maria of MariaDenmark: Wool and Weeds, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12.
I endeavour to wear at least one item of self stitched (sewn, knitted or re-fashioned) clothing and take pictures each day for the duration of May 2012. I will also post all outfits to my blog at least once a week.’
I am actually looking forward to it. It’s going to be a challenge to really think about what I put on in the morning (because I’ll know I have to share it with you guys!) – but it’ll be fun!
Are you participating in Me Made May, and if yes – where can I see your outfits?
Here – to get into it – is a parting pic of what I looked like when I was teaching today – It was cold today and raining a lot, so I was wearing my teal boat neck sweater (me-made!), jeans and wellies!
Happy Tuesday! :-)
Well, the busy get things done right? I might have to think about doing this. I’ve wanted to dive into this challenge before, but it never materialized. Now I actually have enough me made things to make it work the way I’d envisioned it.
I love 5th graders! That’s such a fun age.
Oh, do it, Elisabeth! It’ll be fun!
I love teaching the 5th graders.
They are motivated and fun – but demanding. Then they turn into 6th graders, and it seems like their brains turn off for about a year or so…
