We were invited to join in a thrift store challenge over at Creator's Studio by Rust-Oleum. We were challenged to make a $10 thrift store item new and beautiful again using Rust-Oleum projects.
We loved the challenge and couldn't wait to get started!
In 2013, I moved back to Tallahassee to be closer to my family and especially my two young nephews (and now niece). I had been living for 7 years in apartments in Orlando. I knew I wanted to buy a house when I moved back.
One of my best friends’ mom is a realtor so I knew I wanted to work with her. I called her and she walked me through the whole buying process. She was so kind and honest with me. She worked very hard to help me find the perfect home.
Here is a 5 minute version of my 365 videos :)
A year ago I bought a new iPhone and challenged myself to make one short video each day. It didn’t matter what it was about, it just had to be shot on my iPhone 6 and edited all in one day. As the year progressed, I allowed myself to miss some days but I continued to keep up with the challenge.
I have loved video production ever since I took a TV Production class in high school. My parents saw the passion and potential I had and invested in equipment for me. Since that time I have done freelance production, worked for numerous organizations, and earned a BA in TV Production in college. It has always been a big part of my life. In the last couple years I found myself not getting the joy I once did. Production started to just be a job and brought stress and pressure.
My hope for this challenge was to get back to my roots. Years ago, I started by recording and documenting the world around me. I wanted to allow myself to make a fun video (that I would not have to show anyone) and didn’t have to be a big production.
Recently we had the opportunity to give a gift to a friend leaving the USA for a year to live as a missionary in Nicaragua. We wanted it to be something she could use right away & wouldn’t have to store. A trip to Whole Foods provided everything we needed. We found a variety of useful items & healthy snacks she could use on the plane & once she landed. Next was finding the right gift bag that was useful even after the contents were gone. We decided to transform a t-shirt that was meaningful to her & make it into a bag.
There are lots of t-shirt bag tutorials out there; most are no-sew which we think are a lot more trouble & time consuming than sewing. In our version the bottom is sewn on a machine & given a little more shape with a bit of tailoring.
