  1. Ha! Don’t shop for clothes for whole year! Oh my….not something I could do, but perhaps I’d try if I forced myself to sew again.

    Hmmm….maybe that should be my own challenge as I get inspiration from you!

  2. This is a great idea Jen! I dont know that I could quit shopping at department stores for a year, I am a bit of a shopaholic. But its a good challenge to try! My husband would probably thank you. 🙂
