    Work always ruins everyone's fun... :( Perhaps you could eventualy sell your creations, and be creative all the time? :D

    I was thinking the same thing Soulless. I could so see her having her own store one day.

    Yeah I see what you're saying, maybe not being able to sew all the time helps the creativity build up to new levels then? :D Haha who knows... I wish I could have my cake and eat it too also... :( :rolleyes:

    I love buying stuff at thrift stores and remaking them! It's a great way to let out your creative side. I bought this whit lace skirt and a cotton off white. Then, I overlaid them and did some beadwork and cut it off at my knees (or right below) and I get so many compilments. It only cost me 2 dollars total! And my currect project is this pair of jeans. I have a stencil and I wrote "Left is Right" on the front of the left leg and "right is wrong" on the back of the right leg. Then I'm making this border at the bottom. Its kind of primitive styled I guess. (The bordrer) Any ideas for stuff to remake? I also made a quilt out of Tshirts, but thats pretty common.

    Need Ideas!

    I'm a Libra tooooooooooooo! I love all your stuff, Rar. I can understand about not wanting to sew for other people...; it'd just be so tedious and awful after a while. Good luck with all your goals and stuff :)
