Deconstructing Simple Tee's and Adding Spice to your Outfits

Okay, so I had the whole day off today and was feeling creative so I bought this neat big bag of random old buttons...sooo much I can do with these! I got a bunch of super cheap tee shirts not too long ago and they are boring! I needed to add something so I deconstructed this blue shirt by making a slash on the side and adding all sorts of cool wooden buttons and making simple holes with a knife. Another great tip is to add unique and obscure buttons to your sweaters/anything that has buttons. These really dress up a boring black cardigan to something a little dressier. Plus it makes your clothes different without having to buy expensive clothes or making your own.

Rock out in Cold Weather

Yay, I got some really cute cold items for the upcoming cold rainy wetness that is Portland winter. First off I have been craving a pair of these Dr.Marten's boots --http://www.drmartens.com/ since I saw the Style Bubble rocking them--http://stylebubble.typepad.com/. I decided on the original mid-calf style and they are not only pratical but very kick-a$$! I also got this superfuzzy warm hat from the Gap, I love the red color, its very cheerful.

Obama Wins!

Obama has done it! In Oregon he won by 78%, quite a lead. In May Dan and I saw the then senator Obama in Portland. It was a beautiful day by the water with sailboats and a beautiful shining sun. There were bicycles everywhere as you can see a bit in this picture. To that date it was the largest rally Obama had held, i think over 60,000 showed up. Here are some pictures and video when he came to town. Okay well video is taking forever to upload and I am going to eat a delicious breakfast with Dan so I will post some more later.

My mind may not, be at least my room is!

My mind is all over the place these days, but at least my room is tidy and organized if I am not. The loft like area that I live in is very spacious and we barely have any furniture but its nice to just have empty space sometimes. My favorite thing is my cute dresser and knick knacks on it with all my favorite stuff- pictures, jewelry, lotions, potions and candles!

What Have I been up to?

Hmm I have been up to lots of things. Spooky things, sweet things and well all sorts of random things. For Halloween I dressed up as Uncle Sam seeing as how my name is Sam anyway. For work I just dressed up in my hat, bowtie and beard but at a Halloween party with Dan I work handcuffs and had a toy gun. The party was so cute with spooky cobwebs, lots of great food- mini hotdogs, some kind of cheese with pomegrante on it and veggie platter. MMM i ate so much and we watched some scary movie and told ghost stories. Then on Halloween night Dan and I went to Frighttown in Portland were they had 3 haunted houses to go into. They were pretty scary, the creepiest though was a big fat hairy guy with a crazy claw. Oh I also made some really cute cupcakes for Dan's YMCA kids. I went and read to them and played 4 square which is a really awesome game I never played before or didnt remember I had. Check out my cupcakes!
