I'm in LOVE!!!!

You heard me correctly!  I'm in magical, sigh-filled, heart-warming love!  It all started when I woke up this morning to a beautiful day.  I slept in til 8:30 which is HUGE people!  My gorgeous husband made me coffee.  I laid down on the couch with Good Morning America and my computer and it was bliss.  

Side note:  Alexa Ray Joel was singing on GMA this morning.  I'm telling B how much she looks like her dad, Billy Joel.  He has no clue what Billy Joel looks like?  But more surprising, he doesn't know what her mother looks like...its Christie Brinkley.  I mean I even know that she had her last baby at 43 and named her Sailor.  ...I have lots of random knowledge...I almost said useless but I think it serves me well.

Then while I'm reading blogs I find on Cherry's side bar, I find my new love!

Its absolutely fantastic!  I'm telling you right now...I want to do all of this.  And in my naive, over-confident mind I can, despite only getting an A for effort in art, not artistic genius.  So once my life slow slightly...I know what you are thinking "She's crazy...that never happens."...But give me a little leeway here people, try not to rain on my parade and step on my delicate, push-me-too-far-and-I'll-go-crazy, too-much-grad-school-changes-you-for-the-worse mind.  I WILL have more time and 100 times less stress.

And...She's adopting from Africa!  So of course I love her! 

This is one of my favorite finds on her blog.

What do you think my chances of pulling this off are?  Slim.  I know.  But I might try one day.  I love to play the...if I had a house, what would I do...its easier to dream than to do.
But doesn't it look similar to these...

Why don't they just smack me in the face?

Can you believe it?  That is not in my fun money budget.  So maybe I can learn to make it myself one day.  I'm going to say I can.  Fake it til you make it!

I have a miniature project in mind now.  I don't know when I will find time to get it done since school is literally sucking out my soul but it will eventually happen.  I won't give a hint of what it is just in case I never do it...that way you guys won't know it didn't happen.  See how that works?  No accountability means no shame.  Works for me in the craft world.

Love you!  Enjoy your weekends!

  1. I probably looked at that blog last night for over an hour. I only stopped because my computer died unexpectedly and I realized I should go to sleep. Ryan was making fun of me for wanting him to look at all of it. Thank you. I am now officially inspired, in love, and want to create all of it in my own home someday.
