Breast Cancer Awareness

I shared this on October 12th 2010. Just wanted to do a throw back in support of breast cancer awareness. So many women including my sister are battling this devastating disease. I received second place and donated the bra to a auction raised $272.00 for the cause. 
 Save the Ta's Ta's sponsored by Curves of Savannah.Yeah I was so excited to be able to make this to help raise awareness. Breast Cancer is one of the leading killers of women and men alike in America. I literally took weeks trying to figure out what i was gonna do to a bra.....There are so many "suggestive" options ;) Then it hit me..I am currently in my (blue) art phase so therefore it must be something blue and colorful, what better than the ocean. I made all the anemones , star fish , barnacles, clams,seaweed my self by either sewing something weird or cutting cardboard and covering it with stickles. Oh and the net ..I made the net like a little macrame project then coffee dyed it. Not to shabby if I say so myself.

We are focusing on being Grateful. 

With this in mind I think of dinners with loved ones and the anticipation of the delicious leftovers by nightfall, because, " we all feel weirdly hungry on Thanksgiving once the first meal starts to give us the tensiest bit of room". I love that!

May my applique napkin ring help to warm your thankful table.

Good Morning!

over at 

I am featuring more of the 

IT'S 2.0!!!

Ooohhhh and ahhas to commence

So using the refills in my original made me happy but adding those refill pages in a unique and fun way is what made this fun! 

I used 3 yards of my favorite seam binding in {peacock} color.

Punched equal holes on each front and back piece. Strung the peace leaving it very loose, then glued the strung pages to front and back and then tightened up my laces . 

I hope you try this as it is really a great way to pop that album right into the unique style that is specifically you")
