Dance Concert

My school's annual dance art benefit is this weekend. Each year the dance program and art program team up to put on a show/gallery. And since I'm in both, I was able to design the poster/tickets, etc for the event (see above picture). All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity, so i drew the silhouettes of dancers make up a house. Here are some of my favorite songs that we are dancing to:

1. Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap
2. Hi - Psapp
3. Breathe Me - Sia
4. Dice - William Orbit
5. Stay or Leave - Dave Matthews
6. Headlock - Imogen Heap
7. The Words - Psapp
8. Tic Tac - Elisa
9. Hard to Concentrate - Red Hot Chili Peppers
10. King Without a Crown - Matisyahu

Also being raffled off - a statue I made - inspired by the Futuristic trends:

Cardigan Junkie

I don't know why but i have an obsessions with cute and different looking cardigans and button up sweaters. They are my staples. I like mine to have a patterned or cool buttons - something quirky. I had this plain ice aqua one that I kinda reinvented (it was long sleeve and boring buttons before).
Here are the directions (got this from last April's Teen Vogue - taken me time yet?):
1. Remove buttons from a long sleeved cardigan and line with grosgrain ribbon.
2. Sew vintage buttons on using needle and thread
3. Cut the sleeves at the elbow and fold them 2x; sew cuff in place
4. Stitch one big button to the outermost point of each sleeve cuff
