my heart is beating fast.

Every once in a while things just fall into place so perfectly that there is no other way to explain it except that there is someone bigger out there – someone who has your path all planned out for you. (for the record I am so thankful for that person and the things he is doing right now.)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         This past February I made this layout and this past week I was offered a spot on a team that is going to India next summer. I of course, accepted!!

Ever since I first saw pictures of it I have been in love with the country and longed to see it for myself. I am beyond thrilled that this time next year I will have been to India. The team is going for at least three weeks, with the possibility of staying for up to 8 weeks depending on funds etc. While we are there we will be working with a variety of organizations doing health care and increasing awareness about global health as well as some sight seeing (eeee!).

I am still kind of shocked about the whole thing and am so so thankful for this opportunity. The next year is going to be tough. Busy planning our trip as well as trying to raise funds for the trip as well as figuring out how I am going to make ends meet during my last year of school (since I will have at least one, and potentially two months next summer when I am not working). Despite the work that it will be in planning the trip and the following year – the risks far, far outweigh the other factors.

I will keep you regularly updated. On the 13 of November I will find out more about the trip at our first official planning/information session. I want to thank all of you who sent up little prayers when I asked for them over the past couple of weeks – I truly believe in the power of a prayer or a positive thought and therefore of the fact that all of you had an instrumental part in my being a part of this trip. So thank you for that.

xoxo, your very excited friend,


oh. new followers! There has recently been an increase in the number of you and I am flattered. I want to personally welcome you to my little blog and thank you, thank you, thank you for sticking around. You literally mean so much to me.

ps, i love you.

October Eye Candy






I’ve said it before and I’m sure to say it again but Tim Walker is pure genius. This shoot he did for Haper’s Bazaar is so amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo of his that I don’t love.  Check out the rest of the shoot by clicking the link above – it is magic!!

Today, I am waiting on news that will potentially change my life. So I was asking last week, but especially tomorrow, your thoughts or prayers or whatever would be  very appreciated. Hopefully I will be able to let you know what has been going on with me over the past couple of weeks very, very soon.

I don’t say it enough, but thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings – for those of you who blog yourselves you know how much it means, and for those of you who don’t blog, you’ll never know how much it means until you start your own blog. So seriously, thank you!, jeremy.

ps. i love you

Running Through Fields of Hitchikers

Recently, me and my sweet friend Vanessa and I did a little’ol swap-a-roo. I put together a cutie little kit for her including some of my favourite scrappy things. I also made some handmade Sassafras inspired little woodgrain fawns. looove.

P9016056 Basically, I had the funnest (i know its not a word) putting together the kit – dream job a kit maker. Not a packer per say, but picking the stuff that goes into a kit – that would be so. much. fun.

I also put together a little playlist for her.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         I think I had even more fun putting this together than I did putting the kit together. I handpainted the album artwork and then added everything else in photoshop. Aaaah I loove it. I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you, but I needed to wait until V got her package before I could share.


I have listened to this playlist soooo many times. I looove it. And lucky for you here it is!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones!

I hope you like it. I couldn’t get all of the songs, and I made a couple of substitutions/additions. Tell me what song or songs are your favourite. pleeaaaase.

It is good to be blogging again.

xoxo Jer

ps. today there is something very exiting going on for me. something is in the works right now that i can’t talk about at the moment, but if you’re a prayer i could really use some over the next couple of weeks and especially at 4pm today. i hope to share more about this with you in the near. near. future. veeery exciting.

Well I Do Declare

Golly it has been a looong time since I last blogged. Not quite a month, but just about. Ha. Anyways, I’m back (for tonight anyways) with at the very least a few uninteresting things to share with you. I hope however, that some of them will be interesting to you.

First of all, update. (Disclaimer: I feel like most of this will be uninteresting stuff, otherwise I would have blogged  Run for the cure was a couple of weeks ago, our team raised juts over $1000 so yay! I am having a really hard time getting back into the routine of school I’m just not feeling it this year for some reason. I found the most delicious restaurant last week when one of my very best friends came to spend a couple of days with me (ps. she is moving out west and I am going to miss her terribly. for real though). It is called Veg-Out and it is the most delicious vegan restaurant. If you ever come to visit me in London we must go. MUST. (yes, that is an invitation to come and visit me). I scrapped a  simple, fun layout and have had one sitting on my desk for a good two or three weeks just waiting to be finished. Here is said layout:DSCF1435 My dear London posted the DT work this week for her lovely buttons, so check that out here. I had a lovely thanksgiving weekend with my family – however i don’t have any pictures since I forgot to take them of the camera.

Speaking of camera’s I need a new one, I really  want a DSLR however I don’t think that is going to be possible right now since I just don’t have the money. So two things:

a- If you have a DSLR that you are trying to sell for a good price hit me up.

b – If you know someone who is selling one or know of a good deal somewhere online link me up.

c- If you have any suggestions of a good, reasonable point and shoot tell me because that is likely what I’m going to have to go with.

OK so that was three things, sue me. Speaking of money etc. here are a few things on my wishlist at the moment:

with which to make things – like forts



Ok. That’s all I have today. Tomorrow I will post a fun playlist. yay for being back blogging.
