i want your crazy

I started working on a new DIY yesterday. Haven't finished it yet because my fingers were killing me and I don't use a sewing machine. My mom has this crazy closet in the house that's full of crafty things. Seriously you'll fund everything and anything. And literally on spur of the moment I wanted to update an old oversized sweater so I found already sewn strips of sequins. I just sewed them on in strips.
So far with one shoulder it looks pretty cool. I'm really digging the fact that it's white sequins so it really stands out. After trying it on my mom said I should put shoulder pads in it. And what do you know she whipped out old pads she's saved (can't tell you why) and some velcro. Now my old sweater is bedazzled and padded. Hoping to finish it sometime this week. Unfortunately finals are approaching so I'm on a time crunch. But that means graduation in 2 weeks...
None of my packages came yet so because of my impatience did a little bit of shopping. Bought the ring in the picture in multicolor that I just ordered in a solid color. The multicolor is cheesy but I figured I'd double it with the solid one when it gets here.
Just happy to have a double ring =). Wearing Essie Loophole polish (silver) with Essie Carnival over it. It's a clear with a ton of sparkles (you can't see it). I put it on top to make the silver look a little less space cadet.
