Lorain Blanken, your Guide to DIY Fashion

Last time I told you guys that we would be bringing back handmade giveaways. Since then, our listing system broke down, but is now up and running, so I'll include some giveaways along with this week's news.

I've also been experimenting with bleach as a medium, particularly laying down leaves and vines on fabric, then spraying over them with a bleach solution. What have you been working on this week?
