my issue with ‘House of Cards’

my issue with ‘House of Cards’

So here’s the deal, I have a confession.  The television programming rocking my world these days is ‘House of Cards’ – unfortunately my viewing pattern of the show takes on the one-step-forward-but-5-steps-backwards approach.  I find myself all day yearning to get home, hop into bed and watch a healthy amount of ‘House of Cards.’  But by the time I actually get to it, my bedtime is creeping out…

I find that as I grow older I get this urge to pick up hobbies and skills I enjoyed in my youth. (In this case, youth = middle school.)  You know like taking gymnastics, re-learning how to read music, and cutting up my clothes.

While I can’t see my gymnastics career launching off or my music skills going further than singing in the shower, I did however see a future in cutting my clothes up. Well, cutting them up and putting them back together in a cute manner.

On no specific cold and blistery New York evening, I was sorting through my old clothes – distraught with the thought of throwing them away. They had traveled many miles and seen memories made, yet had rested in my drawers for a bit too long. I wanted to give these items – with ample life left to live, a fresh face. I proceeded to bust out my dusty Bernina, and fashioned these drab clothes into fab accessories! Thus was the birth, from the comfort of my Manhattan apartment, of Sparrow fashions – a brand created for the artists, the explorers, and the dreamers.

Each item is as individual and unique as my customers. I create each one by hand in my humble New York City abode, with the materials coming from clothes, crafts, and broken jewelry passed down to me from family and friends – giving each piece an identity of its own. I pride myself in turning one person’s (or my own) forgotten treasures into an individually hand-crafted fashion accessory.

Obviously I would love if everyone wanted to buy an adorable new hair accessory, but I know it may not be everyone’s ‘thing.’ That’s okay (kinda :) ), you can still help a sista out by liking my etsy shop, sharing it on the social media outlet of your choice, or just telling all your friends how much you like my stuff.  See, it’s so simple.

Below is a tiny taste of what I’m selling, and I’d love to hear what do you think!  Go ahead and leave your feedback in the comments section, pretty please.

Here’s to letting my crafty side show.

keep calm and…

keep calm and…

Keep calm and:

write a blog post, go to ballet, turn out, finish reading the newspaper, change my address, make my bed, ask my boyfriend how his new song is coming along, get envelopes, take more pictures, follow up on that email, fold my laundry, fix my shoes, finish that episode, pay this bill, follow up on the claim, daydream about my retirement home, wash the dishes, text them back, did I pay…
