I participated in my first ever miniatures swap with the wonderful Jennifer from Plushpussycat! She was a dream to work with and I was honored to have her collaborate with me for my very first swap. Jennifer suggested that we list some items that we would want the other person to make so that we don't end up with items we will never use. What a brilliant idea! Unfortunately, since I am not picky when it comes to Jennifer's miniatures, I told her that she could send me anything. This miiiiggghhhttt have confused her a bit. :)

Wow, two days in a row posting! I must be crazy! You will really think I am crazy after reading how long it took me to post this project. So remember back to last summer when I was in a small group for my church called Pinteresting? One project was making a yarn painting and I chose to do a chandelier. You can check out photos from that night along with some step-by-steps here. I didn't finish that night but I did finish about two months later (right before fall). Annnnddd then it took me until now, almost a year later to post the final results. Yikes. Time flies!

Ever since school got out, things have been super busy for me! I finished my thesis (almost 40 pages!) and have been doing errands nonstop. You know, all the things you don't have time to do during the school year. Yesterday (Friday), was the first day that I didn't have to set my alarm in the morning. And guess what? Since the poor kitties don't understand time and sleeping in and all that human stuff, they woke me up at the usual 6 AM for breakfast.

Mhm... Summer is almost here! I am so excited to be finished with school this year! We are wrapping up the last few days and clearing out our classrooms. On the other hand, summer brings warm weather. And by warm weather, I mean hot weather. I am not a fan of temps 80 and above. It brings that nasty thing called sweat. Anyways, here's a perfect summer recipe that will leave you feeling light and refreshed! Added bonus? Oh yeah, it's low carb too!

Several months ago, as in way before spring break, a coworker, Johanna, asked me to refinish a rocking horse for her first grandchild. She gave me free creative reign to do whatever I wanted, which was really nice. She only requested a fleur de lis somewhere on the horse and neutral colors. Way past spring break, I was finally able to get started on the project. Since then, I have been doing a coat here, a coat there- slowly getting the horsie finished. It is now mid-May and complete! Good things take a lot of time, right? :)

Hello all! Lately Todd and I have been talking about moving to a bigger place. Unfortunately, this will not be able to happen for a few years because of that darn thing called money. So in order to make the most of our small space, we, I mean, I have decided to redecorate and incorporate more storage.

Has anyone wondered where I disappeared to? Ah, the cavernous hole of grad school. Just sucks you right in and then you disappear from all social circles- in real life and blogland. But don't worry all; the end is in sight! Graduation is swiftly approaching at the end of August. (But at the same time, not swift enough... ) And then my life will be back to it's somewhat normal state. I mean, what did I do with all my time before homework?
