Meet a Friend Monday - Claire

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Claire from Spinning Threads! Claire is a mom to two adorable little fashionistas, a master thrifter and always looks super cute. Say hi to Claire!

They say if you have a gift you should use it.  I'm not exactly sure what my gift is, exactly, but I do like to shop.  This was one of the reasons for starting my blog.  That and wanting to catalog my closet (something I've dreamed of doing since I saw “Clueless”).  And isn't a blog what all the kids are doing these days?  Or maybe it's just the mommies with kids :)  

The thing about having kids is you're always thinking on your feet...or in my case, wedges (since that's what I love wearing because they make my legs look longer and who doesn't want that?).  My almost 4-year old, Princess Sparkles, is an artillery of questions and my almost 18-month old, Pigtails, well, she's a runner (not always so easy nor graceful in wedges).


My blog may have started out as a place for me to play “dress up” but it has really morphed into something much different than that.  In the 6 months I've been blogging, I've been challenged to dress differently, to remix clothing and shop at thrift stores.   It's allowed me a place to document all the wonderfully funny things my little girls do.  And finally, it's become a place where I can communicate with people all over the world, to be inspired by them and to build relationships with them!

2 WAY TUESDAY – Remixing a Military Jacket


This is just an example of something I do on my blog...


Anyway, lots of thanks to Tiffany for letting me blog here today!  Tiffany is one of my blog twins and we share many similarities, including a closet full of Target clearance rack finds!  I'm always inspired by her and enjoy reading her posts!  Thanks, Tiffany.
