delightful doilies

/ eejay design necklaces /
i suppose it was fitting that i found lots of jewelry that i loved at craftzilla from a crafter called eejay design :) i did buy a piece that might wear for the wedding, so one more tick off the list! i'm looking forward to getting a lot more ticks next week - only 3 days of school left!

cherpumple

/ the mighty cherpumple - click for description /
when looking for a wedding cake, i suppose we could have been distracted by this beaut, but no. we were sensible. instead we have opted for some delish cupcakes from sweet as cupcakes. what flavour you ask? you'll just have to come find out ;)

craftzilla

/ via alt.shift.craft on facebook /
i miss crafting. i enjoy it but haven't had much time for it lately. i think that will have to change once school finishes because i have a wedding to craft up soon! hoping to get some present inspiration (or check off my list) tomorrow night at the craftzilla event.

post-craft shopping i'm hoping to share a bottle of pinot gris with some of my ross ladies, hopefully the weather will be as nice as it has been today!

sleeping beauty



went to see rnzb's sleeping beauty a couple weeks ago. the costumes and sets were gorgeous, but the dancing was the classic choreography so nothing i haven't seen (or danced) before. i know the classics are classics for a reason, but it would be great to see some of these big story ballets remade once in a while! i admit the fire-breathing dragon was unique and quite cool :)

every morning in my house



yep, this happens pretty much every morning at 5:30am.

treeless christmas



got a little packet of homemade christmas decorations today. i decided to just go ahead and give the cats one of them before they tore them off the walls. we won't even attempt to put a tree up...
