Today, I've decided to try something crazy.
I've decided to join dottie angel in her amazing and scary challenge.
I am committing to buy only handcrafted or secondhand goods for my home or my closet for 1 year. I'm also adding my 4 children to the challenge. They have so many clothes right now. I can mend, thrift, get creative, and do what I need to do to make sure nobody goes naked.
As I am typing this, I'm really considering how challenging this could be. I'm thinking: what about Christmas? I guess that can be handmade. My kids have too many toys and things anyway. Spencer's birthday on Friday. I don't have presents bought for that yet.
So here are my exceptions. I'm starting TODAY. But, I don't have time to get creative and make Spencer something for his birthday, so I'm going to make that my exception (unless I have some great idea before Friday). The other exception is, of course, any underclothing that may need to be purchased. Oh yeah, and diapers. I won't do cloth diapers. I just won't. Sorry. And the store isn't included in this challenge. I need supplies and can't get them second hand.
I will update my blog whenever anything worth mentioning comes up with this challenge. Wish me luck!
