One Year!

One Year!! Holy moly!! 
I can't believe it's been an entire year already since the start of this blog. 
 I still have a ton to learn about blogging, but I wanted to let all my family friends, and followers know how much I appreciate them, and how much support I feel every single time I post something new. Thank you so much!

This blog all started when I started hand sewing a scarf, and  I  decided that I spend too much money on clothing, too often. This happened all at the same moment!
That gave me the idea to challenge and dedicate myself to not buying any new-off-the-rack clothing for a year for me, for my husband, or my daughter. I would either make it myself, or find it at a thrift store.

I can safely say that WE DID IT!!!!

Thrift stores, resale shops, and grandparents, and Aunties, were the only way we could have gotten 
through this past year!
As a family we saved money, got a little greener, and overall feel really good about this decision. It was tough at times, but it became easier when I realized we were doing something good for the earth, and our family.
Here's a little recap of some of my favorites throughout this year.

This dress was published in School Arts Magazine! Check it out HERE (page 55).

I hope you had as much fun as I did this year!
See you next time.
