Back from Belize!

Helloooooo interwebs! I am back from my month-long rotation in Belize. I worked hard, traveled a bit, and most importantly, met some AMAZING people.

Warning: this is rather a photo-heavy post, with very little to do with crafting. I took my knitting down to Belize, but didn’t touch it all month. It’s too hot and humid down there for that shiz! I did however, do a little of this-

I traveled a bit, to places like these (for work)-

Tried a little of this-

But mostly enjoyed a lot of this-

As for craft-related- Right before I went, I cut the legs off this jumpsuit thingy I’d gotten YEARS ago before I went to the Dominican Republic for my sister’s wedding. I haven’t worn it since, having come to the conclusion that jumpsuits aren’t flattering to anyone, ever. I therefore cut those janky legs off and sewed on a half-circle skirt of super-soft brown jersey. It didn’t go perfectly, because I’ve never sewn knits before, but it was good enough for a casual, beachy dress. I ALSO still have the legs, and can wear them on my arms. I can totally just swan around my apartment like Blanche Devereaux-

Blaaaaaanche!

Anyhoodle, here’s the dress in question:

Well, I’ve got a LOT of blog-reading to do, now that I’m home (internet in Belize is pretty sketch), so it’ll probably be awhile till I get back to my pencil skirt (I’m both tired and uninspired!). I need a little rest and reboot of my crafty-craving. I’ve got some super exciting awards-posts to share, but that’d have to wait for a different day.

I loved Belize, but it’s good to be home! What’s your favorite place you’ve ever traveled?

One thought on “Back from Belize!

  1. Belize looks amazing! I’d love to go, especially to see the Mayan ruins etc! I love travelling, so it’s really hard to decide on a favourite place I’ve visited! Luxor was amazing, because I finally got to visit all the ancient Egyptian ruins, and Sri Lanka last year was awesome too. I definitely want to see some of Central and South America, because I’ve never been!

    Hope you manage to recharge your sewing inspiration batteries!
