A baseball stadium in my part of Oregon went completely up in flames today and everyone-about 1000 people-watching the fire mournfully sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and if that’s not the saddest thing ever idk what is
I’m not one to post something like this… but this guy has been one of my friends for the last 6 months… one of the first people I met when I moved to Oregon, and he’s been gone for 11 days now. If you’re in the Eugene Oregon area, and you have seen this person please contact the numbers on here. He and his girlfriend may be trying to get to the Salem/Monmouth area, but no one really knows, apparently the girl he was with was spotted near Sheldon High School in Eugene Oregon.
I’m not gonna be like “reblog this please”, but if you want to help, it’d be much appreciated. He’s a good kid.
MECCA, the creative reuse nonprofit I run is collaborating with St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County to host an upcycle fashion and art show. Tonight’s the night and I’m co-emceeing the event.
I made myself a dress entirely out of newspaper. There is a tutorial online that inspired me-especially the box pleated top. I stitched the top to a newspaper skirt in which I added big pleats in the back to mimic a bustle. I used my drop spindle to spin newspaper into yarn and used that for straps. I used the colored Sunday comics to create a cummerbund and to make roses for my neckline and headband. It’s all stitched, no tape or glue is used (except the hot glue to attach the roses). It’s fastened by Velcro in the back.
