Been held up in thee month of FEBRUARY with DIY projects I wanted to complete. But I just haven’t gotten around to them or I didn’t finish them up. BUT I promise to deliver by thee end of thee thee week.
BUT FIRST inspiration:
DOOR LOCK NECKLACE. I am going to purchase a door lock from a hardware store and some chain links from DOWNTOWN LA’s Alley. Add chain to thee mounting openings…voila!!
DISTRESSED DENIM JACKET. I started this project and will report it once I finished but basically I cut the parts of the jacket that I wanted distressed and washed it. via aPAIR & aSPAIR
EMBELLISHED VEST. Will be picking up some cool embellishments beads and such to add to a vintage vest. I also have a Letterman panel that I may sew on to thee jacket too.

While having a tough time with being HOMESICK and other things that has been clouding my mind my friend ASH came down to visit and we had a much needed GIRLFRIENDS weekend. We kicked it tough, ate good, watched all of “OUR SHOWs”. We even made it on time to a club lol. All in all it was a great PICK ME up and a wonderful way to end a hectic week and begin a fresh ONE.
SINCE the tradeshows in LAS VEGAS and making it back to LOS ANGELES catching up with work, much needed SLEEP, and school I am finally back to THEE HIPPIE FILES. I went to the tradeshows to represent for a online/print lifestyle MAGAZINE that I am working for called ILLSOCIETYwhich showcases the raw talents of LOS ANGELES in art, music, fashion, and photography. ILLSOCIEY will soon be available in various locations all through CALIFORNIA early SUMMER.
