crafty weekend

This long weekend has been well-needed and well-spent. The deflation of stress from my body (and healthy eating) has left me feeling creative. So, here's a compilation of photos taken over the past few days to show everyone what I've been up to. Isn't that what bloggers do?

I did some painting, and I guess it inspired me to show off my environmentally-friendly paintbrush wipe! Obviously, it's nothing more than a ratty tshirt. BUT, I wear it when I paint so instead of using paper towel, I wipe my dirty water and colours on my shirt. I guess it also works as a smock, so I don't get paint on my good clothes. (Good clothes, ha ha, too funny).

My boyfriend was nice enough to let me take this photo of him; testing out my secret home-made filter.

I don't know why I always look so angry when I attempt to take nice photos of myself. 

A little something I want to finish soon. 

Finally, this is my plaster owl. Because there was truly nothing else to do, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the Dollarama: bought fresh (and shitty) paint brushes, and plaster animals with google eyes. This is what mine ended up looking like after a day and a half's worth of work.

On an end note, I finally found a disposable camera that I've been looking for in all the wrong places! Thank you, Lisa. Because it's a good night, here's a gooood song.

I came home early from school yesterday because I really would rather spend my time doing something productive, like taking photos of myself in a pretty skirt.

Andddd, I went to see Les Miserables last night. Despite the singing, singing, and more singing, it was still a beautiful story and the acting astounded me. The movie had me crying in the first four minutes, and throughout the entire thing. For those of you who've never seen Les Miserables, see it. Maybe you won't like it, and it is long, but it's something everyone has to see at least once in their lives. It's culture.

orange juice pins

While cleaning my room, I came across a box of collage-decorated orange juice can covers. I actually made these at my cottage several years ago, so some of them are kind of dumb or they're just badly put together, but others are still kind of neat. If I could get some glaze or something that wouldn't ruin them, maybe it could be cool to glue pins on the back, and I could sell them. They may or may not look cool on a bag or on a denim jacket. I guess that would be better than having them lying around, anyway.

So here they are, in all their glory. I think my favourites are in the fourth picture down.
