long-weekend bliss.

5.21.2011

Two blissful days of no school lie ahead, and it's only Saturday. Oh, the joys of the long weekend!



Do you ever have the sudden need to craft? I quite often do, and it can strike any time, at any place. Seriously. The other day, it struck during school and I found myself folding up little pinwheels out of looseleaf. ^_^ Yesterday, the need just happened to strike a few blocks away from the scrapbook shoppe. Coincidence? I think not.

So, a couple of hours later, my crafting need was fulfilled, and I ended up with this:



Today was a roadtrip to the city, filled with raindrop-plastered car windows, a delicious green tea frappuccino from Starbucks, and a two-hour stop at Chapters. I didn't have much luck with books this time, but I did pick up the fifth issue of Oh Comely! Love, love, love.


Well, I'm off to go enjoy this beautiful weather. Have a beautiful day, my darlings!

PS. Book suggestions, anybody? I'm in desperate need of some new reading material.

  2. I love what you made! So pretty. And I'd like to read Oh Comely but I don' think they have it anywhere near where I live. :( Such is the case with a lot of lovely foreign magazines.

  5. I love your posts!! Those pictures are just beautiful. I'm going to go to Hobby Lobby and buy some crafting stuff now ;)
    A new book to read? Hm...well...it depends on your style. Have you read Ted Dekker? He's great!! Absolutely mindblowing. Or maybe you could do some Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte. To me those books just never get old. Hope this helps :))

  6. Wow, you are very good at crafting! :) And of course, the pictures are lovely.
    Book suggestions? Hmm. Well I remember you were reading "The Hunger Games", but if you already finished the series...
    I'm not very good with book choices, but I like Jane Austen, Sarah Dessen, and I heard "Water for Elephants" was good (haven't read it yet, though)

  7. I definitely think "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett tops my list of recommended books - I'm highly anticipating the movie version when it comes out in August! :)
