A year of re-styling

A blog by the name of A Beautiful Mess" is organizing a year of re-styling. It can be fashion to furniture. Take something you have, or purchase a used item and re-style it, giving it a new life in your life. I have signed up and would like you to join me. Do you have items in your closet, that you are bored with, a re-style might be the answer, what about shoes?, jewelry? etc.  This time of year you can pick up some great deals at year end clearances..I am just saying...$2-6 clothing items are pretty hard to pass up, if you like the color, but not the style,or if the size is a size or two to large, snag it, and let's re-style it!

 Check out the site, let me know what you think...are you in

Through out the year then expect to see some posts and possibly tutorials on the re-styling of garments and maybe some more unusal items...they will be fun and quick projects no doubt.

I just wish I could figure out how to add their button to my sidebar...can anyone help with this?

Some possible ideas to get your creative juices flowing...

Grosgrain another fabulous blog I suggest you visit just completed 30 days of embellished knits.  Every day for the month of Dec. she re-styled sweaters.  Lots of good ideas there, including the one you see here.

Stencil a skirt, t-shirt, a old pair of jeans, even a button down shirt.

Remember shoe clips? They are back in style, and a fun and easy thing to do to jazz up your shoes, and thereby your spring outfits as well.

Needle felting Reverse applique, or thread painting?
Any of these choices could liven up a tired garment.
