It was a red and black weekend, apparently

12 Jul

This past weekend was quite eventful! First off, we had one of these:

I made a whopping…thirty-two dollars! Haha! Hey, extra cash at this time in my life is a welcome thing! (Correction: extra cash is a welcome thing at any point in time.) After the sale, everything that didn’t sell went straight to the Goodwill, where my old junk will now become someone’s new treasure. I love that!

That night, I went over to Heather’s for a final get-together with some of my closest friends (and we missed the ones that weren’t there!). Heather and Janelle are both exceptionally good cooks, so the food was ahhh-mazing, as usual!

It seems like half my group is branching out across the US! I’m going to Utah, Jaymee is in Hawaii, Liz is going to Atlanta, Val is headed for Seattle, Sarah is in San Diego, and everyone else may disperse at any given moment come the right job or grad school…iChat, anyone??? I’ve said it before and I will say it again: I LOVE MY FRIENDS!

Yesterday I finished a side project for six bridesmaids’ belts for a November wedding. It was a fun and creatively challenging project, given that I’ve never constructed belts out of handmade flowers before! I was lucky that the bride gave me the freedom to play with the fabric and create a composition entirely on my own, with a single photo to use as inspiration. Another project checked off my list…

Speaking of lists, mine is still about a mile long and I’ve got less than two days to wrap it up! I better get back to work!

P.S. While previewing this post, I noticed that the color scheme is entirely red and black! How strange is that? And how strange is it that my alma mater’s colors are red and black? Haha!

Christmas Party 2009 Recap

27 Dec

Things I love about our annual Christmas Bash:

  •  Lovely group portraits that make  for perfect scrapbook pages.

  • Lovely group portraits involving Heather showing off her best cat impression while everyone else smiles nicely. Makes for even MORE perfect scrapbook pages.

  • The customary white-elephant gift exchange (this year was so mellow! Next year we are going high-stakes!).

  • Reconnecting, laughing, divulging, laughing, gossiping, laughing, reminscing, laughing…

  • Food, food, and even more food…have I mentioned that we like to eat?

  • Playing our new favorite game, Telephone Pictionary. You never know what will come out of that game, but one thing is for sure: Heather will always be distinguished by her one-sleeved blue dress!

  •  Talking about knowledge.

  • Hot chocolate in the oven, apple bottom jeans and boots with the furs, kickboxing 20 times a day, crying because my Uggs are on fire…

  • The one time of year we are all able to reunite! Love you girls SO much!
