I really like my new nail polish color;

it is very pretty.
I'm trying really hard to grow my nails out right now. Hopefully the new colors I bought this week will help make that happen. It'd sure be nice if it did.

I am very excited for 2011. I suppose I go into every new year with a positive mindset, but there's obviously a few reasons I'm especially looking forward to this upcoming one. I'm also very excited that I don't really have to come up with any new year's resolutions. There's still a lot of goals I haven't accomplished yet, so I think working on this list will be good for me. Most notably, 16. Run a half marathon, is going to happen.
now I'm distracted... more later :)

christmas break

So I've technically been done with school since Monday, but now that I'm done with graduation it officially feels like break.

I am super horrible at keeping gifts a secret, and I hate having to wait extra time to give them to people. Therefore, Emily already got to open part of her Christmas present (which was hand-crafted, of course).

Emily's SWECA Letters
I first covered all of the letters with spiffy Mizzou colored paper and used my exacto knife to cut them out.

Here are the letters with the scrapbook paper.

I then added embellishments to each individual letter.

And this is the finished product that will be displayed in her office this semester. Success.

This doesn't have anything to do with Emily's Christmas present, but I had to take a picture of the heart sushi arranged in a four leaf clover. So here's a bonus picture:

Michelle, have you been crafting again?

Why, yes. Yes, I have been.

Since Alexis has threatened to steal my owl artwork, and I had her for secret santa, I decided to make her one out of scrapbooking paper.

Alexis' Owls

I had intentions of finishing some other projects this week since my finals ended early, but that hasn't happened. That's okay; it's been a good week otherwise, so I'm not going to complain.

Life is getting interesting. Four weeks of Christmas break should be {insert one of the many adjectives that it can be here}.

I've been stumbling pretty frequently lately. Which is a horrible, horrible, horrible waste of time right now. But I've been finding some great stuff.

I've also found an excellent site for delegated chores amongst roommates (much needed!) and site to make lists and earn points for completed tasks. 10 points FTW. now I just need to accomplish the other 12 points of tasks I have for today...
