She opened her eyes, and green
They shone, clear like flowers undone
For the first time, now for the first time seen.

Boy, was it ever hot and humid today! All these layers were most
unnecessary, but after getting dressed I was steadfast in wearing
this outfit (such a lousy idea). So, due to my stubbornness, I sweated
profusely all day. Now that I've painted you a pretty picture of my day...
Lately I've been seeing people rock vests with dresses and I really
like the look of it. My pining has put me in a conundrum however, for
I don't own any vests and I have yet to come across one that suits my
desires. Hah, that's the trouble with thrifting sometimes (or always);
it's a lot of searching and hunting, often through junk, to find the gold.
Then again, that is half the fun. So until I come across a vest that suits
my desires I'll have to make due with what I've got. I rummaged
through my closet and found this; I think it suffices, for now.
I'm excited to show off my latest DIY jewelry project: the leaf bracelet.
Being the hoarder that I am (I prefer to say landfill reducer) I have
a bunch of unwanted jewelry just sitting in my craft box, including
these large leaf tiered earrings. I'm big into studs and had no use for
these, so I took them apart and one of the things I created was this
bracelet. The leaf only had a hole in one end of it so I had to create a
hole in the other end. I have jewelry bits lying around so I created a
band a finished it off with a lobster claw. I think this has to be, by far,
my favourite DIY jewelry project to date, I mean you probably
thought the DIY project was the beaded bracelets, nuh-uh! (Yes, I
proudly patted myself on the back after this one)
