Hey everyone!! So a couple of weeks ago I went to an art camp at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. I seriously can’t thank them enough for everything that they do!! I learned so much and I had so much fun and I found my long lost twin!! :D Seriously she has to be my twin! We both have red hair, we both like the same music, we both love art, our favorite stores are thrift stores...it’s crazy the list goes on forever! We had a slumber party the other day and did the photo shoot together which I will be posting later. :)
At the art camp I was given the chance to work with video, which I had wanted to do for the longest time! And I can definitely say that I LOVE it! It was a little tricky trying to film myself though. I shot everything on a tripod and used manual focus to film all the scenes. For the shots of where I’m up in the tree I taped my camera to a ladder with masking tape. I was so afraid that the ladder was going to fall…I had to pay my little brother in candy bars to get him to hold the ladder for me. Haha. I designed, drafted and sewed the sailor jumper seen in this video to create a nostalgic feel of the 1930s.
I want to make a very special thank to my AH-mazing Grandma!!! I seriously couldn’t have done it without her!!! :)
I hope you enjoy!

Hello everyone! Tell me all about your summer! How’s it going so far? Mine’s going great! I’ve been sewing like a mad woman! I love being able to just sew all day and not having to worry about homework!
Here’s a dress I made this week based on one that I saw on Glee, (yes I’m a Gleek.) I made it from an old lavender sheet that was lying around the house…no sheets are safe in my house. I painted the print on by hand using watered down acrylic paint. It has an invisible zipper on the side for getting in and out of and then has scalloping on the hem. Scalloped hems are really fun and easy to do. I learned off of a tutorial from the lovely people at Burdastyle. :)
I hope you're having a wonderful day! Happy Friday!
