Purchasing & Mending

D and I have spent the last three days searching and purchasing gifts for the upcoming family gathering and gifts exchange on New Year’s day. I used to dread this particular shopping activity so much. But I have learned that buying myself something small, fun or useful helps in easing the task at hand. 😛

When I am at home and not busy with gift shopping, I spend my time mending things. I have promised myself to wear my clothes till they literally fall off my back! When things are ‘unfixable’, I usually repurpose them into multi-layered textile vacuum bags. I do not want to ‘contribute’ to those horrible non-biodegradable textile piles in Africa and South America. Those images, they shall haunt me for life…
