crafting withdrawals

Oh dear, where has the month gone!? It's already August 26th and I am turning into a person who rarely blogs anymore. Sad.

I had graduate school orientation, a wedding in San Diego and then school started this week. My life has not been this busy in a long time. I am completely worn out by the time I get home. And yet, I am still awake doing work at 11pm. Smart.

I am utterly stressed, and usually I have time for crafting to de-stress me. However, my craft box is lodged deep in my closet. It WILL NOT be coming out to tempt me from my studies. At least not for a little while, things need to get straightened out with school before craft-mania begins again. I need to work-out to de-stress!

Also, I have been spending a little time every night (before I get too busy) to read the Twilight books by, Stephanie Meyer. I am obsessed and don't have much time to read them!!!

So much to do, so little time. I hope I update again soon with something crafty...like the stuff I made for the wedding.

I haven't updated in a week. Feels weird to be neglecting this page. Anyways I am on my way out the door for an orientation for graduate school. I have finished the room make-over and will post pictures later on this evening! :) It looks cute!

And I made something very cute for a wedding I am going too....but pictures will come after the wedding! yay!

let the redecorating begin!

I got back home to San Jose on Monday. Tuesday I began the painting process! Picked out a paint: Ralph Lauren Eggshell paint in the color- Wisteria. I was a bit nervous that it would be too dark for me, however I have fell in love with it! Thus, today Wednesday the room is completely painted! I did it all by myself, which is kind of crazy because it's like 100 degrees here in San Jose!

Here are the before and after shots of one corner of my bedroom-
1. I painted this back in 1998 the color is fresh cut.

2. Painted today in 2008-wisteria! (havne't taken the bright blue tape off the walls yet still drying!)

Now that the painting part is done i have to go through my things, throw a bunch of stuff out, or give it to goodwill and redecorate my entire room! Yikes, and i have to get it done by next wednesday! What do you all think of the new color?

Glitz and Glamour?

My lil sis in the sorority is getting married! My duties as a bridesmaid means that I get to plan the bachelorette party! So naturally I had to make her something to wear when we went out! She loves the little mermaid so I got crafty and made a great veil! Tulle, sticky rhinestones, and a stapler!

Here is the rest of the fun stuff I picked up for her! I think we are going to have a blast!

I have been staying at my boyfriend's today and he had this plant in his backyard. It looks like a squash? Pumpkin perhaps? but we can't figure out what kind!? I have to look it up!

In other news, I am moving to San Jose on Monday. I will be re-decorating my room at home completely. I am going to try to get it done before school begins. We will see. haha. I will take before and after pictures!
