An Atomic Print To Call My Own

Who doesn't love atomic prints?
The only problem I have with them is that the fabric that you find is either sort of cheesy looking or way out of my budget. So I decided to use some of my long-lost drawing abilities to sketch my own atomic print.
After a couple of drafts, I scanned my little doodles into the computer and played with the arrangement on Publisher.
Here it is! All I ask is for people to respect the fact that this design is for a future business attempt. So please do not try to replicate it.

What do you guys think? Would you guys like to see this as a fabric print in the future?

Freak Weather Fun Days

So it is mid-March and we are having the most unbelievably nice weather this last week! It's really hard to believe that a little over a week ago, we had 4 inches of snow. 
Oh well, I am surely taking full advantage of it!!! 

-I am starting seeds for my new garden. So excited!

It's finally warm -enough for my boy and me to enjoy our favorite thing to do together. SKATEBOARDING! 
(Excuse the dorky stance on skateboard. Wasn't expecting pic)

I missed hiking at Glacial Park. 

My pseudo-model -pose.

 My first outfit post.

Highwaisted pants: made by me (more on that later)

Off-the-shoulder Top: made by me

I really hope everyone else is having as nice of weather and having a great weekend!

Rock 'n' Roll Art

I had originally planned on making this beauty a back patch, but the thought of having some drunk at a concert spill beer on it immediately made me decide to make it ART! 
The more I think about it, the more I can't believe it might have had another fate. 
The sucker is hand painted, embroidered, and appliqued. 
I think I might have gone overboard, what do ya think!?

Crazy Cooking Marathon

Phew, that was exhausting!
I have always found meal planning very appealing, but my impatience and organizational disabilities have always gotten in the way. So tonight I finally cracked and just cooked everything I could to throw together meals for the rest of the week, and ended up with a pretty good spread that happens to be completely gluten, dairy-free! 
Top to Bottom
-Apricot Chicken-
-Shredded Chicken Tacos w/ Homemade Taco Seasoning-
-Spanish Rice From Scratch-
-"Can't Live Without It" Enchilada Sauce-

I also made some Kale Chips and a Berry Spinach Smoothie for good measure!

PS- I hope some of these look good to you cause' the recipes are coming!

Everyone Has One...An Addiction

Well, here we are, after the mother-of-all unproductive weekends. I was really hoping to show off a finished motorcycle jacket, but between a b-day party, a car show, a concert, bowling, and hanging out with long-lost friends, somehow I couldn't find time to sew!
Oh well, its time to approach more serious issues.
What a mess, right! 
I am addicted to Salvation Army
Unfortunately, I am physically unable to not bring home an article of clothing that has lovely fabric. Even if it isn't my style, I always figure I can make it into something more loveable. As you can see, I have my work cut out for me!

Does anyone else have this problem?

Seam rippers, spatulas, and scissors! OH MY!!!
This is my official hop on the blog train. So if anyone is interested in this vintage-loving gal trying desperately to live a frugal, crafty, domestic life, please join me on this chaotic adventure.
