click play on my little video first, and then the real snookie one right after so that they're playing at the same time.


so I started a tumblr... its very easy to post things on... I like it as far as "blog" layout... but its not really a blog.

it seems like the point of it is more like to get people to repost your stuff and like your stuff and then for it to go from there on out... see when people repost the things that someone else reposted...

you pretty much just have to talk about celebs and famous stuff in order to do that.

so even though there aren't as many people on blogger... i'm sticking to this.

Start of a Sewing Project

Start of a sewing project. This is just the color... Both of these pictures are of scrap fabric, so you don't get to see what it is until it's done! :)

WalMart is a mess BAHAHA!

So I work for Target. But even before I worked there, I was always faithfully against going to WalMart unless I needed to. So I was very gleeful to find the one at the beach in disastrous shape when I visited today :) All pictures and opinions of them are of mine and my family's as guests of the store. Not of Target's.

it was bad transition time:
and there was junk all over the place. This was on the water pallets, and they have hawaiian punch, a brush, some toys, bread, a bag of donuts, and after I saw all that there and realized they didn't have beach towels anywhere in the store (I asked a guy that walked me all over the store trying to find them), I added deodorant, a toothbrush, and some razors to the pile.
I'm guessing this is a planogram waiting to happen... with the bag of Doritos sitting on top of the baby bags giving the hint that it's been there for forever.
and my personal favorite, they definitely haven't mastered the signing.

and just to add on... jeans that are a mess. :P

To quote my dad, "That WalMart was a disaster! It was just terrible!". They didn't have beach towels at a WalMart at the beach the weekend of July 4th... when they should be expecting people to visit the beach. Or grapes, which my mom was disappointed about. haha.

i missed my gauchos.

So it's been said several times in my CARS classes that gauchos were a fad like four/five years ago. Well I loved mine because of how comfy they were! I still wear them around the house all the time. :)

I've seen some one piece outfits out and about that have gaucho-like bottoms to them... so I made my own and I'm back to being comfy and still in style!

You'll have to forgive the picture quality... It doesn't really show the shape of it.. It's actually pretty slimming. :)

Threads' Annual Fashion Show: Time Warp and Weft

The show had three sections: past, present, and future... I designed a dress for the future!

The one I'm wearing on the left was designed by Allison Sharpe and I'm working on my design, modeled by Molly VanDeventer

T-shirt Recon!

So Von is in a choreographed dance this weekend. His choreographer gave him two large boxy shirts to cut up and such. All the dancers had shirts to reconstruct. I helped him and this is the best we could come up with:

Brings certain lyrics to mind: "I'm like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage... ...everybody let go, we can make the dancefloor just like a circus!" :)

New Year's

It's a little late for a new year's post... but I didn't make any New Year's resolutions this year. I am just now realizing that I've had a more positive mind overall:

1) I have a great job that I am working hard at...

2) I have a great social life and I've spent time with cherished friends and loved ones...

3) School has some exciting group projects in store for me...

4) I attended Schmooza Palooza yesterday, which was very value-added for me...


6) I paid my car off the last day of last year... and now I'm working on building my savings up.

I know its just the beginning and most of the time people will start something at the beginning of the year and it falls off toward the end (I can see that happening with my savings account :P). But most of my accomplishments are things that have become a way of life for me, and I think I can keep it up. Wish me luck and tell me about your resolutions!
