I finally tried making a sketchbook, using a great tutorial that I found here . I altered it a bit, making it bigger and using a great paper instead of fabric, and it still needs some fine tuning, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! This one will be a part of a care package for my sister, who starts college in a couple weeks. *Whoo education!*
I will leave you with this picture that I found on google. I have no idea where it is from, but it's super cool.
Today is mine and Phillip's two year anniversary! This time in 2007, I flew down to Georgia to meet Phillip for the first time. We spent a week making sock puppets, watching obscure movies, and getting lost in the backwoods of Georgia. I flew home, packed, and moved down here 2 weeks later. Now it's been 2 years and I can honestly say I'm the happiest I've ever been. Sometimes love finds you in the strangest places *cough* hotornot.com *cough* So, happy anniversary Butt-face! I love you!
Here's what he gave me today.
A halloween cookie jar! How freaking cool is this?! I filled it with candy, so it smells like Halloween when you open it.
And another cookie jar! I didn't even know I wanted a collection of these, but apparently I do! This one I might actually fill with cookies. :)
Yesterday, a friend and I spent the afternoon having some quality girl time. Which never seems to happen enough! We hit up all the thrift stores, got some lunch, and proceeded to wander around downtown Blue Ridge. Even though I live very close by, I rarely take the time to wander about all the little shops. One of the places we stopped is a little boutique called BellaEuphoria. And look what I got! The cutest wrapping paper ever. I got two rolls of it and am thinking of trying out some handbound sketchbooks and journals, with this as the cover. Phillip thinks that it's ridiculous, but I love the crap out of it.
I thought this was cute as well, the tag includes a little seed packet of forget-me-nots! Very clever and I definately won't!
I'll leave you with this image of a horrifying doll that Kayla found at a thrift store. May this haunt you the rest of the night. :)
I just recieved my package for an 80's Cartoon Swap on Craftster that I was in, and had to show off my goodies! Everything was so amazing and was a great way to start out the day. Here are a couple of my favorites...I got a LOT more, but didn't want to bog you down with tons of pictures. :)
A TMNT backpack! It is so gosh darn colorful, I love it mucho...
A MLP needlebook. The detail on this thing is stunning. This was the first thing I pulled out of the box. So pretty!
Ghostbusters x-stitch bookmark. Again...wow...
She also made Phillip this awesome etched Ghostbusters mug. Thumbs up!
Thanks, darlin! It was one of my favorite swaps ever!
