let the sun in!

after a weekend of nothing but rain, the sun that is currently streaming through our windows is so fantastic!

week 5: string art

This is something I'd wanted to do for awhile, but I'd just never made the time to do it.  Yesterday I decided I'd go to the beach, find a perfect piece of wood and get busy.  Once I picked the word I printed it out, taped it down and used it as my stencil.  Then I stuck in all the nails and started wrapping.  It didn't take long, and I can't wait to put it in my room at school!

Reading break is going by way too quickly!  I can't believe how fast time goes when you're really having a good time!  I've slept over at my friend's house every night except one since I've been home and we've spent most of our days together too!  All the fun times have meant that school work has been put on the back burner, but tomorrow that will change..  I'll be hittin' the books hard.

Hope everyone's week has been going well!  I have a few post ideas so I'll be seeing you again real soon :)

week 3 & 4: orders

I'm a bunch of days late with this post because I've been a very busy bee!  Last week I had a midterm - well a couple of midterms really, but that's a story for another day - and I also wanted to get a couple of toque orders finished.  The one on the left was for a family friend's daughter as a birthday gift and the one on the right is going to one of my dad's best friends.

The weather here has been incredibly cold the past few days so it feels good knowing that I've tried to help keep people warm and cozy.

I'm on reading break for the week and so far it's been fairly busy.  The past few days have been spent mostly with friends and it's been great having time to just relax and hang out without school work being the primary focus.

I hope that wherever you are, you are warm and happy and healthy!
