Best career advice that I can give: Don’t ever attach yourself to a person, a place, a company, an organization or a project. Attach yourself to a mission, a calling, a purpose ONLY. That’s how you keep your power & your peace. // Erica Williams Simon

One Fantastic Thing. The joy this interesting and whimsical Space Elevator post from Neal.Fun brought me was incalculable. Read it. Share it. Love it. Show it to the kiddos in your life.

Even if you’re not petite, Jean at Extra Petite always has a lot of great sewing and no-sew alterations hacks.  This Instagram video shows you how to fix straps that are too long with safety pins. Plus-size ladies should check out Mood’s alteration guide.

For myself, I keep a selection of safety pins in different sizes, iron-on hem tape, and the Microstitch gun to alter clothes on the fly.  When I travel, I put the hem tape and a few pins in my bag.
