I have returned!

Hello friends!  December is over and life can resume again.  Yikes.  It was a crazy month, and I feel like it's finally my Christmas break, even though Christmas is over.  My work schedule is much less busy and I should be able to get back into sewing, crafting, blogging and thinking up cute outfits.  Yay! 
 
So, you've all probably seen posts where someone takes an outfit they've found on Pinterest or somewhere else, and tries to recreate it with their own clothes.  It's such fun!  And that's what I did when I came up with this outfit a couple weeks ago.  I saw this picture on Pinterest, (original source) and liked the idea of the denim vest over the comfy cozy sweater.  I didn't immediately recreate the look, but I remembered it, and tried it out a couple days later.  I think my version turned out pretty cute!  That's always a good feeling.
 
The Pinterest version:
 
My version:
 

 
If you were looking closely, you might have noticed the little camera shutter trigger in my hand.  I finally got one, and I must say, it makes self portraits/outfit photos so much easier!  I don't have to keep running back and forth to the camera!  I haven't gotten the knack of hiding it in my hand yet, but that'll come.  ;)
 
Well, I look forward to rejoining the wonderful world of blogging.  See you again soon!

Hi Niki!
I found your blog shortly after you posted your "MIA" post, and have read several of your previous posts now. From your writing it sounds like you have such a kind spirit with just the right amount of spunk. ;) I'm glad you've returned to the world of blogging and I'm happy to begin following you!
