12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / My mother is so incredibly impossible. on: May 02, 2006 09:30:57 PM
I need a mother's day gift idea, but by this Sunday, which is a week early, because we're celebrating early.  My mom is in her 50s.  She likes... um... cats... and cleaning things...

Seriously, my mom is so impossible when it comes to gifts, and she will never give me any ideas that aren't really pathetic.  Last time I asked her, she said "new dinner bowls from Longs".  I refuse to buy my mother dinner bowls (they were boring looking, and I wouldn't be able to make her cool dinner bowls, for the record.)

Cry.  Help.  Please.
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Work-appropriate clothes? on: May 02, 2006 05:08:00 PM
Hey everyone.

So, I just got my first real job in which I actually have to attire myself nicely, which starts in mid-June.

The problem?  I am, at heart, a jeans and tshirts girl.  If I have skirts, they're almost all minis, and I can't wear those to work!  I would really like to avoid spending a lot of money to get a wearable work wardrobe.

My dress code is basically medium or long skirts or nice pants (nice capris should also be okay, I believe) for the bottom, and dressy shirts or polos for the top.

I have tons of fabric that I got from a gal off of craigslist for free, but the thing I don't really have is TIME!  School is going to be a fulltime job for me right up until the time my summer job starts, so if I'm going to make myslef some clothes, they need to be EASY stuff!

Do people have some suggestions for me?  They'd be really appreciated.

I have a pretty good source of a lot of polo shirts that I will probably resize to flatter me more (they're kinda big, from an old boyfriend or from my dad's work), so I'm a big more worried about the bottom right now, and ideally I'd like to have more skirts because it is HOT in the summer here.

It's really cute, and I have to say, your face in the before picture is totally priceless.  Hehehe.

In my family, we're totally cool with being like "hey, not my style, can I return it and get something I like?", so in your situation I totally would've done that and gotten lots of money to go thrifting with.  Wink  That said, I know a lot of people's families aren't like that, so yay for making an awesome skirt  you'll wear out of an expensive one you didn't like.  ^_^

I love the collar... totally going to have to steal that idea to make a necklace... and some bracelets from the cuffs.  Cheesy

It looks very nice; good job.  Cheesy

I also have problem with most of my regular tshirt collar... my head is too big for most. Love the way yours turn out. I also have some old elastic lying around. Time to cut out mine and try your way. What a great idea!

Big-headed people UNITE!  Haha, I had to get an XXL marching band hat special-ordered for me in high school... Smiley

Is it possible to sand the edges down so they're not sharp and bitey?
