it began between bookshelves

I know I am terribly behind with updates, and I have a whole bunch of things to share about what I've been doing and getting and seeing, but I wanted to share wit you something I made from a while back, in December in fact, for my English final project. We were assigned a 7-8 page paper on anything we wanted to write about, either a creative piece or an essay, on the themes for the semester. I chose to write a story, and I bound it up in a little book and drew in illustrations to go with it. I was pretty pleased with how it came out, although the writing wasn't necessarily my best, and I thought you might want to take a look? Sorry the scans are shoddy, I didn't want to unsew the binding and lazily scanned it in. hopefully I'll get around to scanning the text in too, just to see what you think!
(p.s. I hand-stitched some of the details, like the stars in the cover, the hearts on the tights, and the girl's tears. Oh, and I borrowed the names Hannah and Landon because I love them so much! The story isn't a very happy one though, so I don't think it has much to do with with either of them)


has it really been this long?

I really need to get myself in gear and remember to post; I was entirely unaware that it has been an entire month since I last let you all know I am alive and well! Can you believe it? I made a promise to update more and I keep taking these extended breaks...I need to get myself together here!
Forgive me for the long silence, I just seem to forget that time flies so quickly! I have lots of new and exciting things to share over here, tons of thrifting and little trips and films I saw and future plans I made, but right now I actually have to get my ass in gear and write some reports for work that I have put off for nearly two weeks (!!!). You see, I am just a terrible procrastinator, someone should really yell at me daily to make sure I get everything done that needs to be.
I will make a tentative promise that I will post a large collection of the finds of the past month come next weekend, but if I don't then I guess yell at me? Send me hate mail? Wait a bit more?
I don't ask too much, do I? ;)
