Publish your own Magazine

Ever wanted to publish your own magazine? I have. When my sisters and I were little we would write articles and draw pictures and tape it all together and call it good. I LOVED it! So imagine my excitement when I came across this: where you can publish your own printed magazine. AWESOME!!!

Makes me want to start writing articles but I'm not sure what about...

Secrets don't make friends

Things you might not know about me...

I drink a pot of coffee a day...
I want to live in a tree house...

Singing loudly makes my heart happy even though it makes other peoples ears unhappy...

I have always wanted to visit Ireland and accidentally forget to leave...

I am utterly terrified of clowns... (I can't even post a picture)

I believe in fairytales and magic...

Went a Little Craft Crazy

My kryptonite is crafty places and good deals... and when the two are found in one place I'm in T.R.O.U.B.L.E! This tends to be the result:

I got all this stuff in anticipation for another snow day. So I think I've effectively made sure that there won't be another one. Isn't that just always how it works?
We made little pipe cleaner bugs and then I couldn't help playing around with photo editing. I think I'm addicted...

The Bachelor

Well the cat's outta the bag now, I'm a Bachelor fan. I am slightly embarrassed by this fact and I never watched the show until they had DeAnna Pappas as the Bachelorette, that's when I got hooked. I’ve been watching this whole season and we’re down to the last two girls and I’m disappointed. Jake should be with Ali. End of story. I’m sure the other girls are great but they don’t click with Jake the way Ali did. So I hope that Ali (If Jake doesn't end up telling the other two girls that he loves her and flys out to propose) is the next Bachelorette.

Think Jake's trying to hard? We know you're a pilot.

Snow Day!

There was no school today... AWESOME! The boys and I watched movies as the snow was fallen outside. I decided I would be a little crafty and let all of the laundry and vacuuming fall to the wayside. (Adults need snow days too!)
Made those Shortbread button cookies. Not being a baker (or one that ever uses the oven) I was SHOCKED at how easy these were to make. This was the recipe I used:

2 Cups butter softened
1 Cup white sugar
4 Cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter and sugar untill fluffy then add flour and vanilla. Mix well. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Seriously, couldn't have been easier. And they're good!!!

I found this book at Salvation army, ripped the guts out, and put my 2010 planner in :)

I made this fig leaf hair thingy. My mom liked it so much I made her one too. I sewed pipecleaners into it so that you could bend it around your hair and add a little extra strength to it. I think I'll add sequins.
Made a blog banner for my BFF. Check out her blog [here] It rocks and I like that I'm sometimes in it :)
All in all had a pretty awesome day!

Too Funny!

The Josie Special Value Kit from KI Memories [here]
I just love it when things have my name!

Also found directions on how to make these adorable shortbread button cookies that I will be attempting to make. I can't bake so we'll see how that goes. They're just too cute, I have to try!
I found the directions [here]

True Color

I did this simple little quiz to determine my color. It's yellow. The personality description is spot on ;) but the color's all wrong. I'm pretty sure I'm aquamarine...

Paramore All I Wanted Fan Made Music Video

Happy Painfully Single Awareness Day

Yeah, if you can't tell I'm not really a fan of Valentine's Day but I never have been. I still get my kids candy, make cards, and whatnot but shouldn't you celebrate love everyday? If there's a specific day that calls out that one emotion shouldn't every emotion have a day? Like Very Irritated day, Hate Day, Mildly Amused Day, Easly Distracted Day... I'm just saying...
I think Carol Lee's Hatemail designs are hilarious!
This year I decided that Sam Worthington (from Avatar and Terminator: Salvation) would be my valentine. Only I wouldn't tell him this and just admire him from afar... as on the big screen *sigh as knees weaken*
