You know what’s weird to say? Well, Hey, I’m on the cover of a magazine!, for one thing.
Yep. No matter how many times I’ve said it this month, or talked about, or showed it off, it’s always weird. But a good weird. Like a weird and humbled kind of weird. Know what I mean?
You may have seen the announcement if you follow me on Instagram, but I thought I should maybe blog about it too before the month is over and the issue leaves the newsstands. Not because I’m a braggart by any means, but because holy amazeballs people, how cool is this dress I’m modeling?? I’ll be honest and tell you that I am still totally geeking out that I was asked to model this amazingly fun paper dress.
The issue is all about repurposing, and the genius creatives at Today’s Woman made this fabulous dress out of their past magazine covers. I can’t think of anything more perfect for me to wear on the cover of a magazine.
Most exciting is that I am featured among many other local reuse and repurpose artists. These ladies have skill and artistry that is truly awe-inspiring. Like my good friend Lynn Quire of Good Garbage who has dedicated the past year to opening Louisville’s first reuse store and creating a non-profit where children are given the opportunity to participate in reuse art classes and educators have access to free supplies for their classrooms. I feel honored to be featured with such talented community influencers.
Oh, and hey look, I’m on the inside too, showing off one of my repurposed coffee sack totes. Yes, this may be first time I’ve ever had my hair curled and worn fake lashes, and no, you’ll never catch me wearing so much makeup again. This entire experience has been wonderful, and I’m so grateful for the staff at Today’s Woman for letting me be a part of their publication this month.
Happy repurposing, DIY’ers!
