The Hot Days of Homemade

I know on Tuesday I promised you more fashion advice for summer and I'll definitely get to that.  Later. Right now, I have a crazy summer plan I'm dying to share with you. I'm calling it...

wait for it...

Hot Days of Homemade!

Okay, you probably guessed that from the title.

Here's the deal. I seem to always want more; more clothes (for both Emily and me), more shoes, more accessories, more stuff to decorate my home. I also have a really long list of projects I'd like to tackle. Plus, I'm big on upcycling, recycling, and DIY. Finally, I want to increase my sewing skills. So I put all these things together and issued myself a challenge.

This means I make my clothes if I want new clothes, I make curtains if I want curtains, I gift handmade gifts, etc. For things I cannot make, I will buy secondhand. Do I seem completely crazy? If I do that probably isn't anything new to you guys.

What do you think?  Could you, would you spend your hot summer days joining me in this sort of challenge?
