Me Made May


Since I hardly ever post photos of my finished projects (bad bad blogger!) and yet I wear handmade nearly everyday, I thought the Me Made May hosted by So, Zo was a perfect opportunity to document some of my outfits! I'm not going to lie, I'm not trying to pose for picture perfect photos, but rather show you shots of me in my life in my handmade garments. While I like posed shots, I also get bored by seeing the same background in the same shots over and over again.

So, without further ado, here are my shots so far, which are updated daily on my Instagram feed (@christinehaynes) by the way... in case you are on there too! I see that I have some favorites in my wardrobe because in 9 days I repeated twice! Here we go...
