It's the Little Things

  • This week was end of term.  It was sooo stressful!
  • I had a bug AP Art project due.  I stayed up until 3 a.m. finishing it.
  • It snowed on my AP Art project.  Now there's a mystery blob on it.
  • It snowed.  This is horrible!
  • I bought fabric for my sewing project I am competing with.  I know I said no hints but I will give you one:  SIX YARDS
  • My sister has her first-ever cheer competition this morning!  Good luck Avery!
  • I have kept my room clean all week.  This is huge for me on it's own but it is even better because I have been so busy!

What I Wore: 10-25-12

 It snowed yesterday.  It snowed yesterday.  I just wanted to crawl back into bed and cry.  As usual, Utah has found pleasure of skipping Fall for the most part and throwing me into a winter I do not want.  Can I just hibernate?

Weekly Craft: Crocheted Backpack!!!

 I really hope I haven't talked up my backpack too much.  I was just so excited that my very first crochet project is finished.  Yes, I finished others before this but...  This is the project I learned how to crochet with.
 It is just my style, too.  I love the colors and the fact that I made up the pattern on my own.  I think I have the bug because I want to make so many more!
 What do you think?  Do you like it?  I may be a bit proud.

What I Wore: 10-24-12

 I made a hat!  It took me only two hours!  Yes!  Today feels like a success.  Next on my list is slippers!  I found a picture I like but the pattern costs money that I don't want to spend.  So I will make it up instead!

My friend told me that it was supposed to snow yesterday.  I am so glad it didn't!  I would love the excuse to start wearing my vintage furs but the cold so soon isn't worth it!

What I Wore: 2-23-12

 Yesterday I got fabric for a 1950s dress pattern!  I am in FCCLA and I plan on competing in the clothing construction section with it!  Am I excited?  YES!  Do you get to see it?  Not for a couple months!

We turned the heater on in our house for the first time this season.  I am not sure how I feel about it.  I am excited to wear warm clothes and wrap myself up in huge blankets while I crochet and drink hot chocolate but... It is cold.

List of Ten

I want to share what T.V. shows I am currently loving with you guys!
  1. Mad Men- I cannot believe it took me this long!  I am still on season one!
  2. Adventure Time- Yes, I am one of those people.
  3. Project Runway- I want to be on that show one day!
  4. Gallery Girls- I think New York would actually be a super cool place to live. I like how it is about girls that work in art galleries but my favorite is to see the girls that own a clothing and art boutique.  I hate the drama!
  5. Once Upon a Time- Fairy tales rock!
  6. Bling it on-  It is a new show about a seamstress that makes crazy blinged out dresses.
  7. Victorious- It is a great kids show.  I have the personality of a child, therefore, I love it.
  8. America's Next Top Model- More fashion.  I love it so much!  It makes me wish I could be a photographer or model.
  9. Doctor Who- I saw it when my best friends Lauren and Lauren made me watch it.  I thought it was so stupid and silly that both of my friends watched it. I am an addict now.  
  10. Pan Am- The show got cancelled.  The show about 1960s airline stewardesses GOT CANCELLED!!!   I am so upset.

What I Wore: Grandma's Dress And A New Backpack!

 This was my grandma's dress in high school.  I think it is so cool that I can wear the exact same thing she wore at my age!  She gave me this along with a few others she saved with the one rule that I have to wear them to school.  Done and done.

I also made a backpack!  I actually sewed everything in my sewing class last year.  It has just sat in a corner of my room for all of these months because I never bought a drawstring.  I finally got a brain and realized that I could just crochet a chain and call it good.

I took this picture later when I thought you might want to know what the blob on my dress was.  It is a bug!

It's The Little Things

It was an amazing week for me!  I had so much fun!

  • I had Monday off for fall break and I got a second piercing in my ear!
  • I finished my dress in sewing class and got an A on it!  Pictures are coming soon!
  • I lost my phone.  This is not one of the good parts.  I am actually frantic without it.
  • I stayed up extremely late (2:30 am) to finish two AP art assignments.  I was so tired the next day.
  • My art projects turned out really well despite the procrastination!  I got good grade on them and they are in the school display case!
  • I have started one of my dresses for sewing class and so far it is looking good!

What I Wore: 10-19-12

Yesterday was so cold!  When I woke up I knew instantly that it was sweater weather.  This year has been about comfort a lot.  I haven't been super dressed up lately.  I should work on that.

Have I mentioned I got my ear pierced again!?  I love it!  I cannot wait to take out this silly silver ball and replace it with something cool.  Maybe I will put a flower in it like Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink.  She is one of my current obsessions.  Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, and The Breakfast Club, are all amazing movies!
