1- I am/have been working like a madperson. This is good for the bank account, and the student loans/credit cards that I have to pay down before school starts again in the fall. This is not so good for the personal life. Sunday I worked 6-2 then went back in that night to work 10-6. From 6am on Sunday to 6am on Monday I worked 16 hours and slept for 2. Just for your info.
2-This is the layout I made for the Such Sweet Tierney DT this month. I seriously love London’s chipboard buttons and this project I made this month was so fun to make. I am totally inspired by Dina Wakley lately – and spray inks are my go to craft supply right now.
I used some of the buttons as masks for the glimmer mist – and just sprayed right over them. It worked better than I could have expected actually. Then I just went around the edges of the masked buttons with my black american crafts pen.
3 – I am soooo unbelievable excited about this. Enough said.
4 – I have been journaling a bit lately. I go through phases where I do it all the time and then another period of time where I may pick up my journal once a week. This is something that I am learning to accept. I used to feel like I needed to journal everyday or I might as well not do it at all – but that is just not how I work. Peeks soon? I think so.
5 – Ok that is not enough said about number 3. When Harry Potter first came out I tried to get into but just couldn’t. I then ended up being one of those “Ha! You read Harry Potter? Loser” Bullies. I never said that to anyone’s face, but I thought it. Fast forward to the end of grade 12. I needed something to read for the summer so I decided to pick up good ‘ol HP again. I was instantly hooked. What a difference a few years can make. I now have all of the books, plus all of the movies. I am definitely a fan and proud of it.

I have a dilemma, I am currently in the exact middle of The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards which took me a long time to get into, but I am finally getting into it and quite enjoying it. However I hear everyone reading Harry Potter and I want to so badly. Lets be serious, it won’t take me long at all to fly through it and refresh my memory – but I’m afraid I won’t be able to get back into The Memory Keepers Daughter. We’ll see what I decide.

I saw Transformers like 2 weeks ago. But before they showed the trailer for Harry Potter. It was the first time I had seen the whole thing, I had seen bits and pieces of it but hadn’t seen the whole thing. In the past I have been disappointed with the movies compared to the books (still love them though) but you have to admit, they make it look so good in the trailers.

Speaking of movies there are so many I want to see this summer. Unfortunately the budget does not allow for me to go to a bunch of movies. So I’ll just have to stay away from reviews (I hate reviews – I would MUCH rather go into the movie with no expectations) and wait till they are released to DVD. Here are a few.
9 – I’m so sorry this post has turned into a post about Harry Potter. Actually, I’m not sorry its about Harry Potter. I’m sorry you had to read through it if you don’t care about it.
10- Ummmm how gorgeous are these illustrations by Jennifer Busking.
OK. I have to work tomorrow at 6. So soon I will be heading to bed. But not before I watch an episode of 24 (sooooo good btw) (my parents don’t have tv so we just watch tv on dvd here when we need to watch something) and I make my lunch.
