Mondrian and New Orleans

Hi people,

I don't have much time to write today, because I'm just about to leave to go to the airport!  I'll be going on a service trip with my youth group to New Orleans, where we will be rebuilding houses and such.  VERY exciting, but I won't be around for another week.  Expect a huge trip-related post sometime after July 2nd.
Something I realized recently is that I have a BAD tendency to start projects when I really don't have time to finish them.  Yesterday, for example, I started painting unnecessary Mondrian on my ukulele case when I sorta should have been packing.

Weren't too smart, but it turned out nice.  I'm taking it to New Orleans with me, so now it will be pretty.

Sometimes I get this uncontrollable urge to PAINT THINGS.  Like, everything around me that has a blank surface (Mom, I'm sorry about that time when I was five and drew that dinosaur on the wall).  This case was so black and boring, but now it's cooooool.

Anyways, it's time for bacon and eggs.  Blogger, I will see you next week (probably with a sunburn and plenty of splinters)!
Don't forget to write.

Bubye now.

I And Love And You

The words "I love you" might be hard to say sometimes, but "I love this song" certainly isn't.

Brand Spanking New

Last week I took a trip to Joann's and found some navy blue jersey knit on the clearance shelf, so I brought home about 2 yards of it.  It was going to be a t-shirt (or several), but since I got so much I decided to make a dress instead, which I just finished on Sunday!  

Forever 21 belt

This is my new favorite dress.  The collar was MURDER to sew, and the inside is a bit of a mess, but that aside, it's sooooo comfy.  I can tell I'll be wearing it a lot this summer, and probably through the fall/winter with tights and cardigans.  Freaking yes.
I wasn't planning on wearing it without the belt, but it works well without it I think.  The silhouette is a little different from what I normally wear, but I'm liking it a lot.

This was also my first time tackling inseam pockets.  You can't see them in any of the pictures, but the lining is bright red.  O.o

I have a little more free time this weekend, so expect more fun things soon!  For now you can admire deleeshus pictures of my breakfast.

See you soon.
