Maybe Manageable May!

Wow! Has it really been a month since my last post??? How did THAT happen?

Well, I guess I know how it happened, but I just hadn’t realised that it had been a whole month! Let’s face it, a body in motion tends to stay in motion, but a body who stops blogging tends to find it hard to start again, amirite?

Anyhoo, I had some (minor!!) exploratory surgery done earlier in the month, and was feeling pretty sorry for myself and tired and sore for a little while afterwards, although I did get a TON of reading, TV series and movie watching done, and lots of knitting, and I EVEN managed to get some of my spring sewing done too!

But then, before I knew it it was back to work (Boo…..) and Mr Cuckoo and I have spent the last two weekends decluttering the house (finally!) and getting rid of approximately 4 car loads of stuff, and we’re nowhere near done. These Victorian houses might not have a lot of floor space, but it appears that they sure can contain a shitload of crap!

With all this going on, I was still thinking about blogging pretty much all the time, but I never seem to have the time and energy to take photos of my makes at the moment, and I feel like there’s no point in me blogging if I’ve got nothing new to show, you know?

BUT. Tomorrow is May. And we all know what that means!!

‘I, Alexandra of Alexandra and the Cuckoo Clock, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear one handmade/upcycled item of clothing each day for the duration of May 2013’

So, now I really have NO EXCUSE not to blog, because I’m going to be taking photographs of myself every day for the month of May! I’m hoping that the frequency of having my photo taken will help me to get a little bit more comfortable in front of the camera… It didn’t seem to last time, but you never know!

Right, now please excuse me, I need to go and ransack my wardrobe for me-made items whilst muttering maniacally about having nothing to wear. (don’t look at me like that, you’re all doing it too!)

  1. Me-Made-May is so much fun, but it IS a bit of a commitment isn't it? I didn't quite manage to document all of my outfits last year, and I got quite annoyed with having to have my photograph taken every day! I'm hoping I manage better this year! I'm even contemplating having an unofficial challenge with myself to have my outfit photos taken outside/in public every day, to try to help me get over my camera-shyness!

  2. Oh yay, I can't wait to see your outfits! I can't lie, though… I woke up this morning and my first thought was, “Oh, sh*t!” I have no idea how I'm going to make it through the entire month!

  3. I know, I'm exactly the same! I realised that I have approximately FOUR wearable tops and the rest of my mades are dresses and skirts, which would be fine except I rarely WEAR dresses and skirts!

    I guess it'll make me think outside the box though! Looking forward to seeing your outfits too!

  4. I am going to post on Flickr, although I only just got around to uploading the first four day's worth (oops!) My user name is Alexandra Sian (I'm really imaginative like that!)

    I've also just discovered that any photographs I've taken with the self-timer action on my iphone are really low resolution…. SIGH. I have no idea why!
