Quilt, Watercolor, and Flowers

Now for a demonstration of my three current loves that have been keeping me busy! I have been working on my quilt with my old Tee Shirts. I'm excited to see how it turns out and how warm it keeps me this winter. ;) Check out the squares that I have already sewn together. My goal is to get it done by Christmas.

I enjoyed painting a Disneyland Castle and portrayed how it would be raining near the castle at Disneyland. I also made a collage in class and then had to draw and paint it, and the dress with the cloud and bubbles is what I came up with it. I think my professor thought it was too "pretty." I however think it is totally me, and I like it.

Bri got me these beautiful flowers a couple of weeks ago, and a I snatched a couple of shots before they died. It was a really down week for me and I was very sad. I came home and these beautiful flowers were in my bathroom, and already my spirits were lifted! It's wonderful how gorgeous flowers and some one's thoughtfulness can really lift up your downcast heart. :)

Ariel - Red Heads VS Blondes

For Halloween, as I stated earlier, I decided to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I had such fun, except at the end of the day my fake eyelashes were itching, and my wig was heavy and itchy as well. A lot of my girlfriends now think I should be a red head, but I think differently.

Though it would be fun to be a spicy red head to ad to my sass, the upkeep is so difficult! I do like the spunk and independence that red heads bring, but who would defend the blondes in this world? :)

For me, when I have gotten red highlights in the past, they have just faded unfortunately. Besides, I am a blonde at heart.I can't go against my true roots since I was a little girl. Anyway, I wasn't able to make a tail for Ariel; I ran out of time. It was fun though being Ariel for a day. I kinda wish my prince was around so I could sing "Someday I'll be, part of your world!" Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I am amazed that it came so quickly. I can't wait to see my family and I yearn for the snow. I don't enjoy driving in the snow, but I love to see it gracefully fall on the ground. I like bundling up in warm clothing. I bought my first two Christmas Cd's a couple of days ago. Notice how I skip right to Christmas already...Ha ha. To me Thanksgiving and Christmas get lumped together, and in my mind I like to celebrate them together. Holidays and celebrations here I come!
