scratch and sniff stickers

make the best tattoos :]
what a wild fourth of july weekend. i had sooo much fun back at home with my friends, it was a much needed break from the daily grind. but it's a new week, and there are lots of new things going on in my life...

i have a new roommate!
when school was over my two roommates that roomed together moved out - adee went back to L.A. and chelsea is traveling south america (lucky girl). so they've been desperately trying to find a sublease. after many many attempts, we decided on an awesome guy named glen. so far so good, we're housing some of his friends as well for a few nights before they head back out on their road trip across america. it's been so refreshing to have some east-coasters over, they've been wonderful.

i finally finished my IDSS pages! it's very very exciting :]
excuse miss "can't be bothered to move." her tail makes a cameo in the corner of each picture.
i added some doodles to this one and i think i like it better now.
the stitching on this one took forever, but i love the way it turned out.
this is an old picture of me and my (very tan) dad, i have to ask my mom what year this was. i'm sure it's circa 1988.
i re-discovered color pencils doing these pages. i've fallen in love all over again.
these are the grand plans, with blank spaces to add things later.
i did this page about my roommate, monica. this is our last summer as roomies and we are taking every opportunity to make it the best it can be.
this will be my 23rd summer. i kept this page simple because i looove this photo (trying to not sound narcissistic), the color of my hair looks really vibrant here. i'm so happy with the finished product, the class was amazing and i'm so happy i got to be apart of it :]

also, i'm taking an amazing travel journal class with kim right now, she is brilliant. i've been so inspired lately, i wish there were more hours in the day to be able to catch up on the bazillion scrapbook projects i want to do.

i'm trying to catch up on my 52Qs (i was doing so good in the beginning, what happened?!), writing down my answers each week and hoping to put together my pages at some point. perhaps later on this week? there's just so much to do.

i finished reading catcher in the rye last week.
i liked it a lot more the second time around. i think i was just in a weird place in high school or something, because i had absolutely no interest in reading that book. maybe it was the language that turned me off. i don't know, but i ended up relating to it a lot more than i thought i would. that's two down, eight to go!

also, i'm working on a little something something for my upcoming anniversary! in less than two weeks daniel and i will be celebrating our one year anniversary. i can't believe how fast time has flown by. putting together this *thing* has been so great, and if i say too much more i will spoil it :]
