Pinaholics Anonymous Meeting #10


I just want to take a moment to thank my DAD for raising me with so much love and patience.  He is my hero.  (sorry hubby, my dad is my number one man, always has been, always will be)   Since I have moved to the USA and my parents are in Hong Kong, I miss them soooooooo much that it hurts.  

I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day.  Treasure your time with your dad no matter good or bad, don't wait till it's too late.  

Today's Theme:  Denim {part 2}

I have posted some Denim Upcycling Ideas in PA meeting #8. Let's recap a little bit.

If this is your first time here, let me briefly explain to you what this is all about.  This is a series I  started to share what I have pinned to my boards on Pinterest that I find interesting and inspiring.  I will feature pins that may be tutorials, tips, tricks, or ideas (but I am partial to sewing tutorials!)
