Birth of a project

I was getting dressed for a friend's birthday party and I didn't know what I was going to put on my body. I looked in my closet and it seemed empty, unpromising. I've had these moments before; everything was old, ill-fitting, or blah. I thought to myself, "Ugh! I have NOTHING to wear!" Then I began rifling through my closet and saw a forgotten shirt I loved and many more, and I realized I was crazy. I had plenty to wear, and plenty to choose from. My closet was FULL of treasures! At that moment I decided I would take a year to explore my closet and to add NOTHING new to my wardrobe.

I would create a NEW outfit for each day in order to maximize my wardrobe and shake up my style.

Basically, I would try to "snap out" of my fashion rut, and appreciate what I have.

It was my New Years' project:
One Closet, One Year.

Weird Science!

I am subbing in science again, and no, it isn't weird, but I needed a title. When I was a kid I watched Weird Science a million times with my best friends Pollyanna and Sarah. We loved it, and we were in love with Ilan Mitchell Smith. At least I was. I think we all were. So cute, that one! To this day, I can still quote choice lines from the film, such as, "You're stewed buttwad!", or, "In your race for power and glory, you forgot one, small, detail." Why is it these lines come with ease, but I can't remember the birthdays of some family members?

Interestingly, we were working on tornadoes in science and that's just what my morning was like! Everything was a rush and a blur, and I grabbed this green sweater  and worked my way down. I am a tree today, mirroring the browns and greens of one of our earthly ancestors. My shoes also have flowers, so Mother Earth is my inspiration!

I just made that up, but I do love me some trees and Mother Earth!

Also, I would like to thank those of you who have been kind enough to look at this blog and share it with others. It really, truly, means a lot to me!
