I’m not sure if I mentioned this before … the last three years, I have been in law school.  That’s one of the biggest reasons that between 2015 and 2016, I didn’t have any posts.  Well, I’m glad to say that in two short weeks, I will be done!

  1. You are so clever, I swear you could take someones’s wardrobe when they are bored of it and totally transform it with your refashioning creative ideas. Actually it could be a whole business plan! Love how you make this T shirt look made to measure on you and so much more interesting than the plain original.
