Okay! So with the passing of the show I usually am inspired to get creative. Not only that, some of the great tutorials others are kindly sharing online light the fire of creativity in me! And so I thought I would post online my list that I can look at and hopefully inspire me to get working...
- Finish my cross stitch (that I started, oh about 10 years ago!!)
- Make a few necklaces (addicting once you start)
- Make a high-waisted dress (McCalls pattern)
- Drape a tulip skirt (use those skills I learnt last year!)
- Make a dress for doing balloons in (I already have the rainbow fabric)
- Finish my army jacket refashion:
A work in progress
Online Tutorials I MUST try:
- Grograin ribbon belt (have rainbow ribbon and will have gold stars as the 'buckle')
- Bouquet Tee
- Layered Ruffle Skirt
- Long Sleeved Shirt Tutorial
- Ruffled Bib Singlet
- This Shirt Tutorial
- Mens Shirt to Ruffle blouse (not a tutorial)
- Refashion the Ruffled T-Shirt Bib
as for other craft projects;
That's about the list of *want to do* for the moment. I'm sure there are things that I've forgotten or shouldn't of left off... but that is a whole lot of creativeness to conquer! If you've got a suggestion for one that should be added.... Let me know in the comments!

I had high hopes for my balloon dress, sadly it was not meant to be :( but I did win a 2nd for it. After having been sitting about for 5 days it looked worse for wear, but that's Darwin weather for you! Here is some pictures I took of my dress the night it was made:

Progress is slow, but I am getting there! I did find some payslips that are three years old, interestingly enough it's only $1.40ish less than what I earn now in the same job! Slow progress, but getting respectable haha.
My only purchase of the night

In a bit of news that is just pure awesome, I finally opened mail that I had been neglecting opening, and one of such was my certificate of completion from the last year spent doing Cert IV in Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft at CDU. Which was basically a fashion design course. Graduation will be next month, and I'm excited for the opportunity to wear the Regalia of hats and capes. Not fashion forward, but made of absolute awesome!
About blogging, from reading some others here and there, I feel quite selective in what interests me about them. For the most part I enjoy reading about ordinary girls / women (like me!) and their interests and what inspires them and gives them the motivation to fuel their blogging.
I think in order to be successful in this, you need to not be pretentious, but be yourself. Talk about what really interests you, and yet still have that something to appeal to others to compell them to read further.
Now I don't know if my ramblings would be seen in this way, but if I can make a few new online friends along the way I think that is fantastic. Nothing quite like the world getting to be a smaller and smaller place! I like to also think I am helping to boost the esteem of others by letting them know that there are indeed those out there listening to what you have to say and give them the heart to continue.

I used some of my free time today to create my first serious YouTube video. Nothing too exciting, but if you watch it I'm sure that it's understandable. If you are a balloon twister why not check it out? :)
Interesting fact: I've been typing this post for the last 3 hours.
Interesting fact #2: I've now made another YouTube video on how to do a balloon flower.
It was more addicting than I thought.
Please visit my channel if you get the time. Leave a comment, it'll be great haha <3

So my effort is only going to be to share those things that future me won't regret, but also hopefully only share things of interest haha. So let's get to it!
Costuming / Cosplay
Chances are if you read one of my posts it will contain something to do with the above. My favourite alignment of text is justified. Just about any document I create will have that as a feature (sorry that errs on the side of boring, right?) so get used to it! :)
How's that for an introduction? That just about completes the obligitory first post. I will plan an interesting 2nd one! haha. Please don't count on frequent updates, but I do hope that it will be sooner than the next blue moon.
