It's been quite some time since I posted, but I promise I have some excellent reasons.
First, I got an opportunity to move into a new role at my company and have been busy doing both the old & new job for awhile.
Second, I have a sweet fella in my life and he's been in town a lot recently to spend some time with me (I'll be there in a few weeks).
Third, I have started assisting my hoops teacher at hoops classes on Saturdays.
Fourth, I have joined a vision group with some women based on principles in The Secret.
Plus, all my friends seem to have February birthdays and I just got a new computer and an iPod (thanks mr. fella) that I have been playing with! Whew...there is massive goodness in my life and there just aren't enough hours in the day. These are my favorite kind of problems.
I am getting a little bit better at balancing it all, so plan on hearing more from me and seeing daily pics on my photoblog.

taking the plunge

After taking a little break from blogging last week, I'm back and ready to officially commit to the Wardrobe Refashion challenge.

The Pledge
I, Heather, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoated, recylcled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings!

The Rules
1.No buying new! (handmade is excepted; So this allows for Etsy purchases etc!!) All clothing must be Recycled, Renovated, Preloved or Thrifted, or Handmade only for the term. Employment related and special needs clothing (ie sports, school), shoes and undies are excepted from the rules, although you are encouraged to have a go at making these.
2.In extreme circumstances, maybe a special event, or the worlds greatest and most amazing never to be repeated sale that you simply can not pass up, you may use the Get out of Refashionista Jail Free card. You are able to use this card once during the 2 month part of your contract; ie 1 for 2 months, 2 for 4 months etc. Of course you need to fess up on the blog and display the button!
3.You must post on the blog at least once a week to let the community know what you've been up to. This will not only give you brag points, but inspire and encorouge others! Of course you need to display the button on your blog and have copied the pledge in at least one post, and provide a link to your pledge under the button.
4.You need to be honest and admit when you've fallen off the Refashionista Wagon! Go directly to Refashionista Jail, do not pass GO and do not collect $200! Apply for parole once there.
