Loved this so much! I wear it as my latin/rhythm dress to ballroom competitions and it works perfectly!
I Must Have Aaltered Vision
I hope my Aawesome Aardvark shoppers notice the wide variety of things living in AlteredAardvark. It is a sign of either my infinite interests or my wackadoodle nature.
AlteredAardvark arrived when the Upcycled/Recycled section of my TangoPony vintage shop decided to run away from home. "Upcycled/Recycled" was a pretty boring shop name, so I went aawesome aanimal hunting. Guess what's at the top of the list?
Aardvark means "earth pig" but is also called "ant bear". It's already a thing that is something else. Aar-aar-aar!
I really can't help myself. Whenever I encounter an old, forgotten something, I hallucinate. I see that the old, forgotten something can become something else. I don't start out deciding to make something, the 'thing' always dictates what it is going to be.
I am inspired by the list of the 43 uses for WD-40 and my father, who taught me that creativity is not optional.

I am nine dog years old. In an earlier life I taught school, trained horses, drove an 18-wheeler cross country and taught ballroom dancing. Now I am a flamenco dancer, violinist and horse nut. Why grow up? Who says you have to decide what to be?
I love to make things into other things. Aardvark means "earth pig" and is also called "ant bear". It's already a thing that is something else. Aar-aar-aar!
I seek out the discarded, abandoned and given away. As soon as I see it, I can see what it can be. I think everything deserves a second chance.
If you still have questions after reading Altered Aardvark Policies, it will be my pleasure to answer them.
