Ever since reusable shopping bags became available in grocery stores I have been buying them with the best intentions. Everytime I buy a new one I make a promise to myself to remember to bring it back with me the next time I go shopping. That's works out 2% of the time I go out.

The other day at work I saw the cutest foldable reusable bag. But the price was crazy expensive so I came home and started looking up patterns. Well I finally found the perfect one for me on the craftster website. So I made it and I think it came out pretty good. Of course it's not perfect but hey at least I have no excuse from now on. I will always have it in my purse and that way it will never be forgotten. But I think the best part is, is that it's washable!

Vampire Craze

Ok I really, really need to get this off my chest. I've tried too long to be polite and civil about here it goes.


First, I confess that I fell for this scam, I allowed myself to be dragged in. All the girls at work were going on and on about it so I read it, ok fine I read all four books. And yes I bought all four books too, wasted about $75 of my hard earned dollars on trash.
Secondly, you must be asking, if it was so bad then why DID you read them, no one made you do it. My answer to you is, I just wanted to see Bella die. Come on Edward just give the whining baby what she wants already. Let it be done....oh no wait....even then it STILL doesn't end..oh Lord.
Thirdly, ok, ok they are semi addicting, and for someone who enjoys reading more serious books, these were a nice break. This is serious "fluff". But what I don't understand is the absolute OBSESSION teen girls are having over this series. I work in a bookstore and these girls are dragging their parents all over the city to get these ridiculous books for them. Then getting mad when they find out that the series is sold out. Oh let's not forget the ridiculously overpriced hoodies, tshirts, BANDAGES, bookmarks, posters, stickers, bags etc etc etc.

Come on people wake up from your comma. I did. It's harsh.

Buffalo Soldier

Keeping with my handmade Christmas, I made a poster for my boyfriend's brother as a gift. Of course I put my Bamboo Tablet to good use (which by the way I'm in love with). He's a Bob Marley fan and so I decided that it would be the perfect poster to put together for him. I threw some textured background, a splash of colour and the lyrics to Buffalo Soldier. I think it turned out very well, but the true test is if he'll like it. I'll find out in a week when he receives it.
