I have been alchemizing some things. Ok so yes, I am turning me and Joel into me, Joel, and a third person, but that is a very hands-free activity.
Hands-wise, in my spare time I have turned this pile of fabric
into this jaunty skirt
and this pile of fabric
into this sack-like dress
which I patterned after this dress
which I bought in Turkey and whipped on one day, figuring I could still wear it since IT IS A SACK, before realizing that even sacks have their limits. And then also this dress which I could never solve the boobs of
into this skirt, which has no boobs at all
and a bunch of bibs and babs into this necklace
and an old sheet into this pillowcase for my much-beloved body pillow.
And also, I've been lugging around my booze-bottles-full-of-change from when I worked at Red Robin, both because I liked the way they looked and because I was too lazy to roll them.
I always said to myself that one day I'd be poor and pregnant and have no money for clothes, and that I'd roll them then, and LO! Here we are. So I turned this (the birdhouse is full of quarters. Not full, because I used to raid it for bus fare, but full-ish)
and eventually into $187-worth of Things That Fit Me.
I am a freaking wizard.
