this past week – its a long one.

i don’t know what it is, but i always seem to blog on friday evenings. hmm. just an observation.

well i have been planning to blog literally all week. everyday i was like, hmmm i’ll blog today, but then didn’t. i always seem to blog on friday evenings. i don’t know what it is but that always seems to be my blogging day.

moving on. today i had lunch and spent the afternoon with this beauty.n509929199_449274_22 i had such a lovely time (and also a delicious grilled veggie sandwich but that’s beside the point). this is my oldest friend, we’ve been friends since grade one and it always feels comfortable, easy when we get together. we started by going for lunch and coffee. we both had chai lattes and then finished with irish cream iced coffees. we then browsed around town a bit with our iced coffees enjoying the sun. ps it has been so so nice here this past week. i think summer may just be here to stay for a while.

i scored some yummy thrifted yarn today as well as some good vintage fabrics (in yummy fall plaids) i have a few projects in mind for these things – more about this later.P8145878edit i was shopping specifically for nice fall-ish colours. i only got one teeny bit of yellow yarn and i would have liked some nicer, deeper, more mustardy yellows but hey, beggars can’t be choosers right? i did however get a ton of balls of grey yarn. i don’t know why but just kept picking them up, it is so pretty – grey yarn is definitely my favorite colour of yarn.

also this past week i secured my spot here:Untitled-1 i am so so excited and it is the reason for my fall yarn shopping and my fall fabric shopping. if you read this blog at all you know how much i loved the last class that rachel and elsie did and the projects look so amazing this time around i couldn’t miss out on this one. also, it is the fall class and again, if you read this blog you know how much i love fall. aanyways, the combo of those things plus the amazing experience i had last time made it very easy for me to dish out the money to pay for this class. also, if you know the font in that banner would you link me up? i love it.

this past week i also started uploading to the SIStv gallery again. i started my account back in the spring but never uploaded anything to the gallery. i started uploading again this week and i was very warmly welcomed. so if you are visiting from SIS welcome! and please come back any time.

also regarding sis my sweet friend jen got some lovely news this week. big congrats to her.

this week i applied for my student loan and this morning i payed my tuition. it went through this evening and i am now nearly $6000 poorer than i was when i woke up this morning.

this week i was watching jimmy fallon and saw this:

so amazing. i’ve listened to it too many times to count.

also on the youtube subject there is a new where the wild things are trailer. watch it here. it is even better than the first one. i am so excited for this movie to come out later this year. so so excited.

i have a new favorite blog – terrible, yellow eyes. it is a bunch of artists who are making projects in their medium of choice inspired by where the wild things are. it is absolutely amazing. some of my faves:peter


ana so magical. i especially love that last one. definitely following that blog now. i will be checking it every day, you can count on that. after all the where the wild things are inspiration today i went looking for my copy of the book, however i can’t find it anywhere so i have had someone read it to me here on youtube like 10 times today. ha! i’m a bit obsessed.

tonight, i will be rolling more yarn into balls (because its so much prettier than the rolls they come in) and i hope to do some scrapping. gooood night.
