Be Marry

This is my grandma's wedding dress! I was so excited to wear this to school! I was waiting only for the right pair of shoes to turn up. When I saw these boots last weekend at an antique sale, I knew I had to own them, especially because I hadnt had cowboy boots since I was around nine years old. While I have been away, Lauren and I have both tried out for another dance team. I am so excited to see what level we end up on(I am hoping for advanced)! As soon as I find out, you guys will be the first to know!

While it is on my mind, I have started adding bracelets on the blog, so please check them out, and be sure to email me with any questions! I just have to share this story. A boy in my class was looking through my bracelets that sell for eight dollars, and just barely, I noticed that I couldnt find one of them. I opened the bag that was holding them and a dollar fell out. Can you believe him? I was wondering why he was holding a stupid dollar while he was looking through them. I was hoping he would spend that dollar, but on a bracelet that was worth a dollar!

I dont know why I have never thought of it before, but this is a perfect place to advertise the bracelets I make! So, if anyone is ever interested, please check out the bracelets tab I am going to put on soon and send me an email!

The Principal's Award

I wish I could say I had more faith in my drawing, but the picture I drew for the Principal's Award is not my favorite. I loved this drawing before I started coloring it in. The more I worked on it, the less dedailed it seemed to get. Aww, well. I would have entered another picture, but my other drawings probably wouldnt appeal to my principals, who are male, and wouldnt want a darker style drawing hanging in their school for the rest of forever. I will be sure to tell

you how the drawing places(if it places at all). I was sort of hoping not many people entered. After talking to some girls in my classes, it turns out lots of people with lots of talent entered, which only discourages me more.


Last weekend I went to George's. Lauren and I had yet another sleepover, and we really wanted to go antique shopping! My mom mentioned this place, and we had to go! I really had no idea how huge it was! It was two seperate buildings, and the area between them. There was such cool stuff, and I only wish I could buy the whole place! I bought some old door locks and I am in love with them! I will have to work on getting a display for them, so everyone can enjoy them as much as I do! I will make sure to post pictures of them!

I can bet you so much money that they had over 1,000 doors! I cannot wait to get a job this summer so I can buy all of the incredible stuff I find!

Lauren and I wanted to catch up, being that we havent been relatively close lately. Wandering and taking picturs seemed like the best way to do so! And so, off we went!

A St. George Easter

My family spent easter in St. George with my grandparents aunts, uncles, and cousins. Here are some pictures from the trip! I had so much fun! Dying eggs with my cousins was probably my favorite part. Dying eggs is always my favorite part of Easter!

look at the design in my grandmas cupboard! Does it not look like a pair of eyes!? I will post this again when I use this for a drawing!


I was bored, so I took some pictures. These pictures were taken last month, so, again, I am sorry for being behind.

Welcome Back

I am sorry to any of you who actually noticed my absence. I was grounded, for a less than acceptable grade in math. You have to love Algebra. In the meanwhile, I will attempt to narrow down all of the posts I owe you into a few catch ups. Please note that I will try to make it up to you guys by more frequent posts!
