Anyway, here is my belt!!
Awesome isn't it? I watched the whole season 5 of 30 Rock while finishing it, so that gives you an idea of all the time that went into it... I decided to put little hooks and eyes to tie it in the back. Oh and I forgot to mention, but the black fabric I used came from a old pair of pants. So the belt is from upcycled fabric!

And this last picture is a mandala I drew on my bedroom wall. The wall itself was painted with some special paint so we could draw with chalk on it. For the last two years or so it was sporting some huge flowers my mom made while I was in my old appartment ans I was tired of them... so I washed the whole wall and drew this with colored chalk. It took me a whole afternoon, and it's quite big, maybe about one meter wide (that's about three feet wide). It's supposed to be a birth mandala, I figured it would inspire me with my work as a doula and with all the articles I'm writing on my doula blog...
I'll take some pictures with my whole 1912 outfit soon, with the soes and everything, and I also finally bought some ribbon laces for my 1840 corset, so there's some serious picture-taking coming soon. I'll do that some thime this week. Stay tuned!
