Happy Holidays!

Like my new earrings darlings? Obviously I was very good this year; how good have you been?

And of course that's hail outside the window not snow; after all it's the middle of summer here and storm season!

My wish for you for Christmas is that you enjoy this time as a child does - with wonder and an open heart.

Thank you for making my year lovelier through your support.

It's a wrap!

Hah! There’s no way I’d be able to do this! Maybe it’s the undergarments that help, or Mr Drapo's huge hands! I can’t even master a sari - purchased one recently and there was no way I could 1. get it to look right, and 2. feel confident that it wasn’t going to fall off at an inopportune time! Stapling could help...or maybe sewing myself into it. The closest garment I can find that seems like it would work, is the 'infinity' dress. This is a simple dress that can worn a multitude of ways. Etsy has a number of sellers selling this type of garment - see a few below. And the red, black and white dress was found on the Instructables website with really clear instructions to make your own. Safer than a sari I'd say. Photobucket
