Me Made May '14

It's that time again!


Hosted by the fabulous Zoe, you can read all about Me Made May (and make your pledge) here. Last year I pledged to wear one item of me-made clothing every day during the month of May. With a few sketchy entries (sweatpants, underwear) I did it!

This year, my pledge is the same.

I, Beth, of 110 Creations, sign up as a participant in Me-Made-May '14. I endeavor to wear one piece of handmade clothing every day, with no repeats, for each day during the duration of May 2014.

I've been brainstorming how to make this year different from last year, and I haven't come up with anything. Anything attainable, that is. I don't have enough skirts/pants to try wearing two items each day. I certainly hope that I won't resort to sweatpants in order to meet my goals!

And now for a bit of business: part of MMM is taking photos every day. Last year I laid my outfit on the floor and took pictures that way, and posted a weekly round-up. Now, I have a tripod and could feasibly take photos IN my clothes, but that requires setting up and taking down a tripod every day.

Thoughts? For MMM do you prefer to see the clothes on people?

  1. I do like seeing the clothes on the body, but that set up/take down of the tripod each day for 31 days - kind of a hassle. Though you will get very proficient in the process. Maybe just do what works best each day. Helpful, yes?

    1. I could just link to the original blog post for each garment...I think that's what I did last year. Set up/take down is *so easy* (sarcasm!) when a 2 year old helps you :)

  2. Why not just take a week's worth of pictures on one day, if you know what you will be wearing, saves the set up time. Can't wait to see what you will wear. I may attempt this for June, seeing as my studio is almost finished being set up.
