You are the wind beneath my wings..........

Since I've decided to make my clothes from here on in, I thought I would troll the world wide web today for some inspiration.  I know that the title of this post may seem a little random, but honestly, who doesn't think of Bette Middler and this song when they want to be creatively inspired.

For the inspiration I checked out a few of the blogs that I follow in Google Reader (I have an obsession with reading. Books, blogs, the backs of shampoo.  I read it all and remember it all.  It's just weird really).

First, I stumbled upon this really cute idea to make a wine rack out of coffee cups.  Now, if you were the kind of person that could actually keep a wine rack stocked, this would be a handy idea.  My "wine rack" consists of a bottle of nice wine (that I haven't gotten to yet) and three bottles of two buck chuck that we bought for the weekend.  But on to the project:

seriously?? How cute is that??
The instructions to the craft are at http://www.realsimple.com/home-organizing/decorating/double-duty-decorating-ideas-00000000034283/page4.html

Next, I threw an eye over at Anthropolgie.  I just love that store.  I found a few cute things there that I would like to try to recreate for the summer.  Especially the tank top:

Notice a theme?  I must like ruffles or something.  I think I'm going to start with the tank top.  It's racer back, and except for that, the tank I'm wearing today kinda has the same shape.  How hard is it to make a racer back, ruffles and an asymmetrical hem?

But then, how hard is it to keep an apartment clean?  I keep trying, but I just can't seem to master that one.
