“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” ~George Bernard Shaw


This Christmas break was my laziest and my most productive all in one.

The week after Christmas, Whitney came over for a craft night and brought over season one of Chuck. I never thought that would be a show that I liked, but it is really addicting! So, that one craft night quickly became a craft week and three seasons of Chuck!

Luckily, I actually got a lot of things done while watching Chuck! I finished a scrapbook of my trip to Paris (and it’s only been 3 months, so that is a scrapbooking record for me!), I finished a quilt that I meant to give Julie for Christmas 2 years ago (sorry Julie, I was so amazed that I finished it that I decided to keep it, haha) an apron for a friend’s birthday, and some baby clothes/hair bows to give out as gifts. Now, all I have to do is finish crocheting the edge of a baby blanket that I started when I was 15, and all my old projects will be completed!

In the midst of all our crafting, Whitney and I decided to make some crafts to send to Zami (Zane and Cami) since Cami is usually an integral part of the craft nights. So, I made them this little race cars to race with each other, haha.

2011 001 2011 002 This will sound weird, but I post these pictures because I kind of think that these little cars look like Cami and Zane! Seriously, my mom and Whitney agree!

Anyways, no more crafting for awhile since school has finally started! It looks to be my busiest semester yet, but luckily it’s also my last!

hahahaha - that's ok about the quilt, you were probably thinking I'd have a kid or 2 by now- no baby, no quilt. plus it took you two years to finish - you deserve that quilt!

Still don't know if I should take your comment about the cars looking like us as a compliment...haha. But we love them anyway!!
