Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

No New Clothes Challenge: I Need Jeans

I am a whopping nine days into the No New Clothes For Six Months challenge and I already ripped one of my three pairs of jeans that fit. I need to buy jeans.


I guess I don't need new jeans, but the thing is I got a whole in yet another pair, and now what is a girl to do.

I would try to make some, because it's a no new clothes challenge and how hard could it be to make jeans. Actually I would say it is way beyond my sewing talents.  The fabric alone would cost me more then buying a new pair.

But alas, it is a challenge. I could just patch them, but inner thigh patches (Yeah that is one of the places they ripped) just look tacky.

So nine days down of the no new clothes for six months challenge, and five months and 23 days until I can go out and buy a new pair of jeans.

Since the goal is nothing new, only because we tend to over buy, why can't a replacement be allowed? Your net increase is zero.

Depending on the rip patching the inner thigh isnt that bad (I've done it) use something dark and soft.
Upcycle!!! if you upcycle someone elses jeans (friends, thrift store) they are NOT new!!!!

I love June idea - I really hope you will consider that - It would be fun and more meaningful than just buy a new one!

Rip holes all over the legs of the jeans and wear tights under it like this:

If you patch on the inside with something dark and soft. They should come out fine.

Great ideas guys. I am actually hoping to seriously pear down my wardrobe. See I actually have more jeans then I thought because I buy things if they are on sale and over consume. I am going to try and patch them:) because I like the fit.
