If theres one thing that I’ve learned about myself this year, its that I LOVE GOOGLY EYES! I love sticking them on everything and giving them to my friends to help encourage them to see faces and personalities in inanimate objects. My most recent silly googly eyed additions include:tattoos

She’s Crafty!

8th February 2012

After years of lurking around on Cut Out & Keep‘s blog for crafty ideas, I’m really excited to brag that I just got featured on the site!

My tutorials on how to make lavender sandwich cookies, a $400 iPhone case, and a couple of Q&A’s can now be found on Cut Out & Keeps “Crafty Superstar” section.

I think this means that I’m one step closer to being allowed into Martha Stewarts house without fear of a restraining order!

11 Facts About Pee…I Mean Me.

11th November 2011

Everyday, I will encounter multiple things and places that spark a memory or an emotion that are uniquely my own. However, when asked on the spot about pretty much anything that defines me as a person, I constantly draw blanks.

The other day, I got a note from my amazingly crafty homemaker friend Bea asking me to share some facts about myself through Instagram. Although at that moment the request left me starring at a crack in the wall, trying to think of anything about myself that was even remotely interesting, I was excited about coming back to this self serving idea.

Even when I was just a wee emotional nugget back on the LiveJournal farm, no one had ever involved me in one of these silly survey-esque things. This was to be a new first!

So yesterday, when my alarm went off, I gathered up some supplies and went about my day of errand running with a plan. To stop along the way, write out personal facts that I was reminded of as they hit me, and take a photo of the fact along side the thing that triggered it.

I packed the following fact documenting items:

  • scissors
  • markers
  • composition book
  • photos that didn’t turn out quite right
  • artist tape
  • and a fully charged iPhone (& Hipstamatic app)

Since its now 11/11/11, and I’m pretty much an 11 year old with a bank account, I figure its fitting to share 11 random facts about myself!
