Old But new again.

My kids NEVER WEAR OUT THEIR CLOTHES, I MEAN -N E V E R-. They grow so dang fast that if there is a hole in something, there must have been a mishap on the playground. I guess its nice. Wait, no its not, I spend so much more money on clothes than my friends do, it is really frustrating to me. One funny fact. Me my husband and our 3 kids in school, (12,10,&7) Have never been in a class picture where we weren't in the last row. I don't think any of us are awkwardly freakishly tall,... just tall..... Whats my point???

Highwaters.... yep I can't stand 'em. Its always been my pet peeve, if I can see their socks, I might as well stick a pocket protector in their shirt, then scrape my nails down a chalkboard. I have tried to turn it around for this spring. I am not going to buy this girl any more shorts or capri's, I am hacking off her highwaters, (that look like new cause I just bought them and then she grew). She modeled her new capri's for me the other day, and this skirt that I made from a pair of pants, and a ton of appliques. I love them, and so does she. She loves to be different

I am making a tutorial to show you how to make your own, but if you don't like to applique or sew on denim, click on my etsy shop I only have these made up so far, but like I said, I have plenty more I can make.

check back in a few days for my tutorial, and if you choose to buy one in my shop. Let me know if you would like a pair of earings or a hair clip, The sunshine makes me want to give stuff away.!!

These are great! Love that look, too. My girls are growing fast, too, so I'll have to try this.
