neverland, please.

Um yeah, this is my first time ever participating in a challenge blog. I always check them out but have never actually done anything. When I saw that this one was inspired by Peter Pan I couldn't resist. I had actually just watched Peter Pan the day before (because I'm cool like that :] ...disney movies rock!) and was feeling particularly inspired.

Anyway, this is my take on the challenge:

this calls for a celebration!

I passed my boards today! Once I get the letter in the mail and pay for the license I will officially be ARRT certified.

Right when I walked out of the testing center I wanted to throw my arms up in the air and run around screaming.
But I restrained myself.
Until I got in the car. :]

Andy sent me flowers yesterday for good luck. They're beautiful and bright. They're just what I needed. They totally cheered me up.I swear, nothing could ruin this day.

Today was perfect. I spent the afternoon sitting outside in the grass. It was wonderful. The sunshine and warmth was very much needed.

I finished my baby blankets and burp cloths this weekend too. My mom bought the fabric for me a LOOOOONG time ago and I'd been slowly working on them. This weekend I finished the airplane set. They're my favorite. :]

I don't have much else to say. All I know is that I can't wait for this week to be over! I take my boards this Friday and I just want to be done! Ah! I'm so nervous! Once I'm done with the boards I'll be worry-free until school starts again in the fall.

Wish me luck!

happy friday!

Well well well...its been awhile since I've shown this blog some love.

First off, I just have to say that Google Reader is the best.

I'm in love with this man's artwork.

I love this swimsuit that I just got yesterday!
And sketchbooks rock. I just bought like four of them and I guarantee I'll use them right up. Right now, I'm using one for my quote/picture book. I love quotes and I've had the hardest time finding a fun way to keep them (somewhat) organized. This sketchbook does the trick.

I just mod-podged some paper on the front and covered the spiral binding with some fabric and voilĂ ! I love it!

Also, as of late, I've been obsessed with fabric. After much contemplating, I ordered this fabric that I've been in love with and I about DIED when I went to the mailbox today and found it waiting for me! Seriously, I've been in love with the Heather Ross Mendocino collection since it first came out. I finally splurged and bought enough of it to make a quilt with. I can't wait!
I had to control myself so I wouldn't buy anymore fabric...this store has the cutest fabric!
And can I just say that getting packages in the mail is the best! Its like Christmas all over again!

Well I'm out!

I'll leave you with my new favorite song at the moment!

i want her dress.
and i want to dress up in balloons
and white tights
and dance around in clouds of colored smoke. :]

Have a fabulous weekend! :]
