X marks the spot!

Yay! I finally took a break from school work to start a project! My mom got these great Halloween patterns in Solvang. I have been dying to make them! I took a nice trip to the craft store, picked up some new thread and began!

I can't wait to find more time to finish it. Then start on the cute spider! happy fall everyone!

10 days ago?

Wow. Time is seriously flewing by! (yeah i said flewing, it's something called morphological sophistication. little kids do it and it's on my test on Tuesday!) Can you tell I have completely immersed myself in books?

It is (almost) Sept 15th! What happened to the last 10 days of my life? Where did they go? My days have become weeks have become months. I don't have a break until Oct. 2nd! And even then it won't be the kind of break I want because I have a test the day I get back! YIKES!

In some respects I hate that I don't have a chance to breathe. My "weekend" consisted of an hour out last night with my sister. I am not used to this much reading, or not having any time to relax. Like exercise, craft and have drink out with some friends. Let alone time to watch TV.

However some of my stuff for school this weekend was fun, like my seminar 9am-4pm on Saturday about Autism. I also went to the Mexican Independence Day festival today and interviewed a really nice guy from Guadalajara! I also like that since time is flying by that this program will be over faster than I know it! I don't have time to freak out over how the hell I am going to get everything done, it will just happen. I don't know how....but it will. When finals are over, I will look back and say, "What the heck!? It's December already? I made it!!! SWEET!"

I even attempted to craft tonight. I got out my cross-stitching supplies! However, I don't have the colors I need! How that is possible? I don't know. I swear I have so much thread but never the color I need! HA! I promise I will have something craft to show off soon! I desperately need to stitch at some point this week! Just to keep me sane. :)

Have a good week and hopefully I will be back before another week passes.

ashley you got creative and i thought it was cool

so i copied your idea of a header for your blog! :) it's a form of flattery! I was having a bad evening and I saw your page and wanted to do that too. I didn't even know you could do that! your handwriting is your own though, I traced mine. Not as crafty as you in that sense AT ALL! :( I am so jealous of your pretty writing. I need to work on mine. Anyways thanks for the idea and helping me destress via crafting.

i want to escape!

I dream of running to some far away place where all I ever do is craft. I have these awesome halloween cross-stitch patterns. They have been on my desk looking and me and just begging to be made.

however, I don't have the time. I have my first day of clinic today. I am nervous but bascially I just want to get it over with!! I want the awkwardness and the unknown to be out of the way so I can move on with my life. I hate stressing, but I feel like 50 minutes is a long time to keep a kid entertained. Normally I am totally fine being with kids, but not today! I bet they are going to be nice and it will be fine!

*sigh* wish me luck, I need it.
