1980s to now-
I am gonna do one!
Mom pulled this silk dress out of her closet...
And I couldn't help but take it to upcycle. How could I resist? I posted a picture of just the skirt, because it's gonna come off that black ribbed awfulness and be just a skirt. With a waistband.
It might be long enough to make a dress, but I don't know... What would I put with it?
It'll be neat to start making things I know will transition well out of college and into life. I know dresses like Sunset are lots of fun, but I don't know that I will make as many of them when I graduate, unless something falls out of the sky, hits me, and tells me to make it a career.... Right now that's not what I see myself doing, because I don't think it's what God sees me doing.
I don't mention God much because I feel sure that not everyone who stumbles across this site wants to hear my opinions on God. Don't get me wrong, I am a Christian and pretty involved in my church. I also happen to be very liberal, but no matter I am politically, I feel that God has a pretty big say in how I live... I know my purpose is to shine God's light. Right now I am on a journey to figure out how. I feel a very strong calling toward vocational ministry, because helping people through the questions I have faced and still face on a regular basis is something I feel pulled toward. Letting God work through me in such a way as to help others would be an honor, and be very fufilling.
It's something I feel that MANY aspects of my life have prepared me for, and the logic behind God's master plan is something I believe in, and know that the events of the past week or so have been a test. I know God wouldn't get me to it if I can't handle it, and I think I wrote this as much for my sake and remembering that as for anything else. Sorry.
But that's not what you bargained for when you saw the title... But I guess it applies to that dress and me. Both have been on a journey, our paths have just crossed.
