The first thing I notice is the smell of grass.

Then I see it. In the near distance there's a clearing through the trees; a field of grass.
Then I'm lying in it. My nose is pressed into it. It smells like summer. It smells like happiness.
The sun is warm on my bare back.
Then I open my eyes. My head is on a desk.
A teacher stands at the front of the room. I don't know what she's talking about.
Disappointment settles on my heart.

I don't smell anything.

Ta daa! This is a tote bag I made yesterday from somebody's old shirt! I think it's a really great idea because they're so easy to make and they're perfect for carrying around books or your yoga mat or basically anything else. They're durable, too. I think I'll sell a few of them this summer.
The one with the raven on it I'm keeping for myself.. that logo is too cool!
(I hate the purple one. Not my colour.)

working weekend

I took these photos yesterday after school when I realized it just wasn't a day for homework. Well, it wasn't exactly a day for photos either (the wind was crazy, and my hands were numb by the time I was finished), but I hadn't had a date with my camera in a long while. 
This is a pretty basic look for me: boots, oversized shirt. Just about everything I'm wearing here is thrifted, as usual.

Republica Dominicana

It's been about a month since I was lying on the hot beach of Dominican Republic, soaking in the greatest sense of carefree-ness. It took me a little while to get unpacked, as it always does, and therefore I didn't upload my vacation photos to my computer until a few nights ago.
So voila, here they are. There aren't many of them, because I took four disposable cameras along with me and used those most of the time. I still haven't gone to get the photos developed. I know, I know.
