The Dreaded Muumuu!!!!

Ok so I finally got up the courage to work on the MuuMuu (sp?). It's by far the most feared dress of all nine that I bought. I tried using color remover to remove some of the color before I tried to dye it black and neither worked very well but I kinda like the end result of the black dye. It's slowly growing on me. After that I chopped and stitched and came up with the end result which was inspired by this gorgeous red skirt from ModCloth!
 
Here is the Before:
And here is the after!

I've also been uber, uber busy with the Farmer's Market downtown every Saturday from 8:30am-2pm. I've done relatively well. Here are some pics of my booth and my little lady who is, by the way, crawling everywhere now! I'll also try and upload the video of her moving lol!

Oh yeah sorry to make this so long but I'm in love with the sun hats I made for the Farmer's Market and for my Etsy shop!

Tattoos and Summer Dresses

Sooo I'm back again, sorry it's been so long. I've been uber busy getting things ready for the Farmer's Market downtown that starts on the 18th of June! Anywho my two new tattoos finally healed so here are pictures of them. The first one is my mom's signature, people ask why get that? Well, when I was little I used to always try and forge my mom's signature in my planner at school because I was the one kid who had to have it signed every day, which to no surprise I never did and always forgot. So its just something that I thought I'd do to humor my mom who LOVED it! Mind you it was so far the most painful tattoo and the smallest! The second on is of my first camera I ever got. I am really into photography believe it or not! It was my grandpa's camera and I use it still its a Nikon FE. I love it sooo much! Ok here's the pictures of them!






My tattoos were done by Justin Zaun of Independent Ink in Fargo, ND! Check him out! He's amazing and does amazing work.


Ok now I also refashioned another one of the dresses a bought a while back. I was inspired by this adorable dress on http://www.modcloth.com/ I love this site in general and get alot of my ispiration from it!
Here is the dress that inspired it:

Here is my interpretation of the dress:
