Christmas Playist

So I had planned on putting together a Christmas playlist for you, my friends but you know how time slips away, especially when your life is consumed with finals.

Aaanyways the reality is I’m listening to a lot of the same Christmas music as I did last year so I decided I would just share the playlists I made last year again.

So I present to you, for the second year in a row part one and two.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

So I am listening to all these lovelies plus  a lot of the Oh Blue Christmas album by A Fine Frenzy. I’m also listening to (probably the most) The Christmas Collection by Sleeping at Last (which is free, so go download it!).

Enjoy these lovely treats for your ears.

Jeremy :)

Ps. I Love You.

One of my favourite Christmas playlists out there right now is by my cutie pal Kara.

You can listen to her’s right here.

If you like mine you’ll like hers. So go treat your ears.

Uncut Christmas Vlog.

I always say I should Vlog about something but I never have anything good to Vlog about and I always feel like my videos are suuuper awkward after I shoot them. Anyways so when Kim asked me to be a part of a little Christmas project she was putting together, it was just the kick in the ass I needed to actually put together a little Vlog.

You can see Kim’s blog with all of the lovely ladies who took part here. Or right on my blog in my post from yesterday (GO!) Like I said yesterday, it is totally worth your ten minutes to watch that video. It is funny and heart-warming and just a lovely little video.

Anyways, I sent Kim over 5 minutes of me awkwardly rambling on about many a Christmassy things. Here, is that full video.

Once again, big thanks to the lovely people at YouTube for picking the most amazing screencap of me as the start image. And yes I know you can change them, this is the best of the three options I was given.

If you make it through the whole awkward thing congrats because I definitely can’t. I dunno, there is just something about watching myself on video – so strange. Also I had to cut out a ton of me laughing after the carollers comment. It was such a ridiculous thing for me to say and I cracked myself up.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy it. I always love seeing other bloggers do Vlogs, its a fun little look into what they’re like in person.

Inter-Webular Goings On

We are currently in the thick of finals period kids. During this time period it is common to find students all over the nation drinking coffee as fast as it can be made, with bags under their eyes, stressed and un-showered. This is including myself, as evidenced by this group of textsphoto Random yes. We were planning getting some supplies or Christmas dinner later this week.  And just for your information “And I shebang showered in days” is read “and I haven’t showered in days” ha. I was waiting for the bus, my fingers got cold and spazzy and my phone auto-corrected whatever I had typed to shebang. Classic autocorrect. But yes, I haven’t showered in days. My hair is disgusting and I’m keeping it contained in a hat and I don’t think that I’ve started to develop a smell so…

Anyways, there are some pretty exciting things going on around the interweb this week.

First, my pal London (holler!) of Such Sweet Tierney is currently hosting a 12 days of giveaways on her blog. Its currently day three and you can enter every day, all 12 days for a chance to win some really cool prizes. So go on over and get yourself some good swag.

Next, Vanessa blogged about the time back in September when I went to go visit her and crash the baby shower she was throwing for miss Katie. Here is proof that this little meeting did in fact take place. 6a010535b35419970c0147e098bd81970b Yay! it was fun to be reminded of the good weekend we had. I can’t say it enough how cute and sweet Steven and Katie are, and Vanessa was a wonderful, and funny, with a fridge full of boxed wine. Such a good hostess. Anyways, go here to read all about our fun weekend.

Finally, the lovely Kimberly Scott asked me to take part in a little Christmas Vlog she put together. So I got out my little camera and started to ramble on about all things Christmas. Here is the video that Kim put together – its super good and totally worth your ten minutes.

Check out Kim’s post about the video here to see all of the fantastic ladies who were involved. It was just the break from studying I needed to keep my sanity and I’m so happy I got to be a part of it. Thanks Kim!

Aaanyways, I am going to take the rest of the day off (I think) I may motivate myself to give this little apartment a deep clean but we’ll see.

I’ll be back tomorrow to share the full, uncut (awkward) five minutes of me just rambling on about Christmas.


ps. i love youimage This super pretty picture was in my email the other day in an email I got from Toast. Pretty right?

All I Want or Christmas – CT December

So last week the new Creative Type prompt went up and I thought I’d finally share my little project with you.

The prompt was “All I Want for Christmas”  and we had to use something vintage on our project.  Here is what I made... It is a little envelope in which you can keep all of your Christmas wishes!! I used some vintage fabric scraps and I used a vintage colour palate. I am currently loving the seventies olive and mustard combo. This is a fun little project that all of you can do too. Or something you can do with your kiddos on a snowy day. Just grab an envelope – I reused one that someone sent me some goodies in – and then decorate it all up however you’d like. Now go forth an make one yourselves after you check out what everyone else came up with for the prompt at the Creative Type.

Happy Weekend.
