I love the summer because I get to read!!! Yay!! 😀

I finished 2 good books this week:

I don’t know if I’ve ever read this book before…I’ve seen the movie so I couldn’t tell if I was remember things because they were in the movie or if I had read it before. I’m pretty sure I haven’t, so I’m sticking with that…Anyways, it’s a really cute book 🙂

This book was just as amazing as The Walk – I couldn’t put it down!!! I would have read it faster if I hadn’t been also trying to finish my scrapbook! lol 🙂 I can’t wait for the next one (it doesn’t come out until next April though… 😦 bummer!)

That’s 2 more for my goal of 20! 😀

A Trip to JoAnn’s

May 17, 2011

So this past weekend I went to JoAnn’s! yay!

I think this is like the first time I ever went to JoAnn’s and didn’t by anything knitting or crocheting related! I got materials to make Flamingo Toe’s Antro Into the Woods necklace and some scrapbooking supplies.

Yes. Scrapbooking. I’m not going to lie, I never thought I would get into scrapbooking. I blame my friend Emily who made a really cute one for this past year at school.

So now I have 2 scrapbooks planned in my head. I spent like an hour or two last night picking out pictures for a scrapbook with pictures from freshman year. And I just spent 2 hours looking through almost 1000 pictures from my Italy/Switzerland trip from 4 years ago! …I managed to narrow my pictures down to 81 (well actually I took some from my sisters, so, to about 73) – pretty good, I think! lol 🙂

I just need to print them now….and get a big scrapbook for my Italy/Switzerland pics…I have a small 8x8in one that I’ll use for freshman year, but I’m going to need a big one for the other one because I want to write stuff and I have ticket stubs and stuff…

yay crafting!!! 😀 and starting more of my 19 goals!!

May 13, 2011

I finished my freshman year of college!!

Wow. I think that was the fastest year of my life!!!!!

I’m home now, missing my school and friends. :/ But I have an awesome summer ahead of me, so it’s ok. 🙂

I’m excited to do some crafting, too, and to cross off some of my goals! I hope to cut my hair soon…it’s getting way too long for my liking, but I’m not quite sure if it’ll be long enough to put in a pony tail if I cut it…. :/

Anyways, HAPPY SUMMER!!! 😀

I’ve been absent…

April 14, 2011

I know! And it makes me sad, however, I’ve just been super busy!! It seems that everything is happening in April! I have so much school work, fun activities and my parents are coming next weekend, so things are kind of hectic.

Anywho…just wanted to say that I won’t be posting until school is out…so like until May. Only 4 more weeks!!! O.O (I have such mixed feelings about this! I want to be finished w/class, but I want to still be able to hang out with my friends here!)

Well, have a great April!!! 😀

Purple Purse

April 6, 2011

Here’s the purse that I started over spring break!

It’s going to have some ruffles on it too….

I seem to have lost one in the shuffle of unpacking though… :/

I also have black purse handles that I bought from JoAnn’s. I’m excited to work on this some more….if I ever have the time! 😦

April is going to be super busy! Only 4 weeks left of class!!! And every weekend is booked!
