Last days (this was written a week ago...)

Alo there, whoever you are, wherever you's Saturday, at least on this side of the world. I have no pictures to share, a half finished purse, decisions to make, and a rumbling belly. Oh, but above else I have God in my heart. That pretty much outweighs everything else. I feel Him even now holding on to me, and I'm thankful. Have you ever met Him? Do you know what He's like? You should get to know Him, He'll change your heart.

This is my last week with the sewing class I've been taking this semester. On friday is our "graduation day" where we present our projects and get our certificates. Also, we'll get dressed up for the day and eat great food. It's bittersweet. 

We're in December...December...December...the year's almost over and it seems like it just started. If you haven't started yet, I suggest you do; start living the life you've always dreamed yourself having, the life you've worked for, the life that will make you feel like you're living and not just existing. The life God has in store for you, the one He wrote, the one that's beating in your heart. He put it there, He knows, just ask and He'll give it to you. He'll also give you the courage to live it.

Go for it, 


p.s I guess there was a picture after all..the one you just painted in your heart.

On related news (to absolutely nothing)...

I had a masssiive caries that nearly took my whole tooth out! I kid you not!!! Even the doctor was apalled. I think he's still worried. Me? I just are three pieces of carrot cake and I feel like I could eat another..who knew getting your teeth fixed could work up such an appetite?! (Who's with me?).

DIM (do it myself) Reversible Tote!!!

And it was totes (insert awkward face emoticon) fun to make! I found this tutorial on this woooonderful blogggg!!!! It's worth shouting for, I promise!!! The cool thing about this lady is that she offers a wonderful workshop for kids and teens, and has another series for adults..I of course used the kids' workshop, because that's how much of a beginner I am..and a wuss!!! But behold, the wonderful world of learning to sew!! My own reversible tote! :) 

Look at me, ain't I pretty!

Now, I know what you're thinking..seriously? she couldn't have taken a better picture? Well, let me tell you something people, I could've, but it's late and I was too excited to show it off!!! But, I will take better pictures of it, I promise!

Honestly, this is an easy, fun, wonderful project to take on if you're a beginner sewer, or a veteran that wants to learn something new or reinforce their skills! Anyways, I'm pretty pumped about this (cue fist pump in the air) and will look forward to making more!!! Stay tuned for more pictures (I did that with my television voice..thought you should know...(awkward face)). 

Mucho love,



I've had a really good weekend so far. Up in the mountains, eating tostones, sewing and being with family...all good! :) Also, I've re-started reading The Starch Solution. So GOOD!!!! So informative, so eye opening and convincing. We're doing so much harm to our bodies and we're not even conscious of it.

Now, to the love/hate part...I love/hate you ModCloth. You know why..your vintage-y, flowy, perfect clothes and shoes and handbags..(sigh)...I'm done.

For my soon to be here niece!! :) Must buy! (link on picture)
