Decades Day!

Spirit Week!

But my school celebrates spirit week haphazardly.

“I’m representing the 21st century” “I don’t own any neon!”

And our spirit days were

Monday: Blackout day. Dress in all black! I was surprised that more people didn’t participate in it because it’s so easy. And a completely ridiculous day 1 of 5. I wore white, intentionally.

Tuesday: Neon Day. Or bright colors. I positively hate neon. (realization: saying POSITIVE-ly HATE. Oxymoron.) But I wore bright colors.

Wednesday: Decades Day! A lot of 50’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 21st’s.

Thursday: Celebrity Day! I do not want to dress as someone else. And I didn’t participate.

Friday: Class Colors Day! This is always our Friday spirit day because we have a pep assembly.

This is my decades day prep.


PIN CURLS! part deux

Curls brushed out…

This dress is 30/40/50’s, from Goodwill. I had to repair the zipper, but it fits like a dream.


my AP tests are next week. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.

Apples to Apples

First off:

Do you like my temporary tattoo?



Who: Me!

What: A bracelet made of cards.

When: I made and finished this the day finals were over.



  • 2 Cards
  • Jump Rings
  • 2 Clasps
  • 2 pairs of needle nose pliers
  • A crocodile
  • Scissors



This is what a crocodile looks like. Use it to punch four holes in each card slice.


Instead of jump rings, I took apart a charm bracelet and used the chain bits.


Attach the jump rings through the holes until it reaches around your arm. Then attach the clasps.


And: It was a really fun craft to get my creative mojo back.


A Wednesday post? An on time, scheduled post? It’s been a long time hasn’t it?

I spent my last day of winter vacation making this collar. I used a tutorial on Casey’s blog. Quick and easy.

It’s the Hat

I am not feeling inspired with my posts.


My favorite picture ever:

I promise you that whenever I see this picture I will grin. No matter the time or the place.

And I got my permit!


Efficient Sunday

It sure has been a while since I last posted. This week has been busy. A lot of studying, testing, and stress. There was a lot of fun too, but as I’m in the studying mode I can’t think of anything else.


Friday and Saturday were my days off. I did no homework and it was great. I sketched, put up Christmas decorations, we got our tree, and relaxed. But as the day dragged on, I got more and more stressed about the amount of homework I needed to do, and the lack of days I had to do it. So I made a schedule.


I have it all planned out on a piece of paper. Get up at 6:45, get dressed eat breakfast. 7:00-8:00, read chapter 19 for history. 8:00-8:10, break, eat, get dressed, get set up. 8:10-9:00, do chapter 19 online homework. 9:00-9:10, break, computer, get set up for math. Etcetera, etcetera, you get the gist. I live for these 10 minute breaks. So far I’ve been spending the little time I have on this post, typing as much as I can before the 10 minute mark is up.

And I’m listening to Mozart at high volume on repeat to stay focused. After going through my playlist at least a half-dozen times, it’s starting to lose it’s effect.


DONE! I’ve reviewed chapters 1-4 and I’m ready for my final Tuesday/Thursday! I still have to make flashcards, and memorize them, and do a few practice problems, but I can do that tonight.

On another note, here’s some necklaces a made a little while ago. I could make these all day. But I don’t because making these necklaces is a very long process. First, whenever I find a shell or rock on vacation I save it. And it sits in my suitcase or coat pocket for months until I find it and set it on my dresser. It remains on my dresser until I get a burst of inspiration and turn it into a pendant using wire. And back onto the dresser it goes because I don’t have a chain for it.

Here are the lucky few that made it through the last obstacle.

I might get back to my regular schedule of posting 2X weekly by Wednesday, maybe. You can count on it by winter break though.
