It is All About Perspective

Hello friends!

It has been awhile. Work is keeping me busy and wearing me out. I come home and crash, usually, so I don't have a lot of time for blog posts or anything really. Less that 2 weeks left before summer is here though, and you can expect to see me tons once that gets here! It has been an interesting couple of weeks. I was kind of having a bad run for awhile, but this last week made up for it all.

Although, I have the flu today, unfortunately. Boo! I was bragging that I was one of the very few people to not get it at work- staff and students alike. But yesterday it hit me like a ton of bricks and here I sit hoping it goes away soon.

But you know what? I don't care. You know why? I got my wedding dresses and shoes- 2 dresses and 2 pairs of shoes for less than 300 dollars! I love my first dress, and will where it for the ceremony and part of the reception but to be honest, I am much more of a short and fun dress kind of girl. I found the first one for so cheap, I was able to get a second short one to party down in! :) And then, I completed ALL my centerpieces and they are perfect...just what I envisioned. And I did all of them for less 50 bucks by buying everything at the thrift and dollar stores and making them myself. Very exciting! 

Best of all though, Kevin and I are getting our first apartment this June. My Uncle owns it and is giving us a killer deal. It is not huge, but it covers all utilities and it has 2 bedrooms so I get a crafting room! Woo-hoo. And since it is family, he is letting me paint it. AWESOME. I won't be moving in until after the wedding (we are old school kids) but you can bet I will be down there everyday painting and decorating it. So yes...it is a good week!

Anyways, enough with my yabbering. I still have nothing new to show because I have been so busy/sick/etc. and I am saving all the wedding stuff for the big day. So I thought instead I would show you this painting. It is done in my favorite colors, (also the wedding colors) and it pretty much sums me up perfectly! I title it "Different Perspectives" which is fitting for my post too. :) Have a great week everybody!

Rawr!

Hello friends!

Not a lot going on here. Well, actually there is TONS going on, but nothing I can post still. It is either for swaps or the wedding and I am saving them all. Work is dragging lately. After this week though, only 3 weeks left! I have mixed feelings about it though, because as great as summer sounds, I am pretty heartbroken that I am not going back. Who knows though, a lot can happen in a few months!
For now, enjoy these silly but cute monster plushies! I have sooooooooo many cute things to show you, I just need to get it all sent so they can be surprised when they see it. I am putting the final touches on Kira's and Audrey's packages (we all did a Facebook pay-it-forward pledges of making handmade goods for each other, and I am making their items tonight!!). So hopefully by the first of next week I will have something new.

In some good news, Meat Loaf, my idol and hero and favorite person ever (tied with Tim Burton and Walt Disney of course) has announced the first leg of his US tour for this summer, so I am (im)patiently waiting to hear when he will be here. Keep you fingers crossed for me that he come near me, guys! :D

Zombie Weekend

Hi there people!

Long time, no talk. I have been sooooooooo incredibly busy lately. A lot of ups and downs in life lately too, so not a whole lot of crafting, and what I have done is TOP SECRET swap stuff. 


I did just finish this commissioned piece of a girl and her family...ZOMBIFIED! I hope she likes it! Anyways, I just wanted to pop in and say hello. Let you all know I AM alive- barely. It has been a long couple of weeks and I am pretty drained. These zombies have more vigor than I do right now. That said, it is off to bed for me! Good night and happy weekend everybody!
