Spring BREAK DIY Projects

I found myself the last two weeks sulking over life challenges I have no control over. I was swaddling in my own bitterness and anger and had to snap out of it. I really needed a mental break and found myself counting down the hours until SPRING BREAK.
Often times I am so consumed with work and the kids that I forget about myself. I don’t want this to happen as I plan to remain “21” forever. When my kids’ father decided to finally give me a break (first time solo since the year started) by taking the kids for a few days, I WAS IN HEAVEN. I may get a break from them every now and again but I am still grateful. Even though I wished upon a star* that he could be MUCH more involved; knowing that they have a father around once is a while is better than not having one at all.
So I needed to get back to regular programming of MANY DIY projects that were in the works.
I wanted to created all the Easter looks for my daughter and a few for me. I made 2 headbands, 1 skirt, remixed a T, started an amazing white lace skirt, completed a Mommy and Me look and even made pillow cases for my son’s room. To top it off, I did a little spring cleaning as well.
So today I made this AWESOME top from a MAN’s shirt I picked up at Ross for $9.99.
I wasn’t too happy with the outcome of the sleeves but I felt like a million bucks. I really loved the look. I fell in love with Mimi G’s top and was so excited to create the look from her tutorial here. I rocked it with my converse gifted from a special guy with my favorite boyfriend jeans. Loving the entire look from head to toe.
Thanks for stopping by and can’t wait to share the Easter looks that I have been working on this week.
