Just a few photos that I'm behind on posting from where we went out to eat before I came up to UC. Then check out my UNION tab to see what I've been up to!
I felt flowery today. So I made felt flowers. You can find tutorials here and here, although I'm not sure why they both suggest fabric glue. Hot glue gun is the clear choice. Anyway, I think I'm going to put them on the walls near my bed, or the blank sides of the cubes I built. I think the first photo does the most justice to them and the colors. That blue is more aqua than it is letting on, I promise.
These little guys are so cute, although they are indeed time consuming (although I'm sure much easier with hot glue than fabric glue!). I would just love to make more more more of them and put them all over the room (although I'd like to keep my roomie for the whole year. Wouldn't want her to think I'm flower-crazy).
Also, if you are interested to know, I made my first lasagna last night. Lasagna is not a food I grew up eating at home, only at other people's houses, and last night I just decided to give it a try. It was kinda fun to make and was pretty good. Nothing outstanding, but good. Oh, and for the record, the little apple pies were not really that great. Just in case anyone was wondering.
Within a week, I'll be all moved into the dorm. I decided to spray paint this little old stand to use possibly as a phone stand. Because, yes, I still have a land line phone that I use.
Cell phone? Nah. Just another way for people I don't want to get in touch with me to suddenly have a direct line to me at all times. Just not for me.
So, here's my vintage plant stand, all sprayed to basically match my cubes. This year is looking very promising.
Yes. It has been a long time. A very long time. But, you see, it has been a very busy time. In the last two weeks I've been working, packing, finishing working, and moving back to school. Yesterday RaeLea and I packed up all our stuff and my dad and I took it up to school to prevent a too-huge load next weekend. Plus, yesterday was freshman move-in day so lots of (very kind) volunteers helped us carry everything up. Luckily, we landed a room on 2nd so we have only one flight of stairs. We even got our carpet hauled up from the carpet dungeon, and my dad and I got it all laid out to flatten this week before we go. It was a very productive trip, and I'll be posting pictures next week on the UC tab. We are so excited to go back to school. Anyway, this weekend Mikey was in town after a long summer at camp, so on Sabbath afternoon we decided to try to make mini apple pies. It was... interesting. They looked pretty cute but the crust was pretty dry and didn't bake enough, and they were really hard to get out of the muffin tins. But it was a fun activity!
