Broken Promise

So I've done what I swore I wasn't going to do with my blog...

...I abandoned it.

I will be back though! My life will finally be normal starting Jan 27th. Until then I have to get through Christmas, moving 3 days after Christmas, living on my friends' couch for a month, going to class 8 hours a day - 6 days a week for 2 weeks, then the biggest exams of life.  Then...NORMALCY! And what's even more fun is I will have a new house to decorate! I hope my landlords will let me paint :)

Anyways, I'm sorry everyone.  I still lurk around the blogging world daily and have a huge file folder of all my crafts I will make when I unpack.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

and...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

New House :)

I need some Christmas in my life!

I have a confession...
I really dislike the fall/winter season. I can't stand the cold, winter clothes, or fall colors.

So yesterday I started making my folder of Christmas decorations to make!

I really hope to make our own stockings this year.

Happy holidays!

Hoo Are You?


1.What was your favorite meal growing up?
It doesn't have a name, but it's chicken wrapped in bacon on dried beef with this white cream sauce.  My mother actually made it for all the meat-eaters at my first birthday as a vegetarian.  How mean was that? It was such a temptation! 
2. What's your favorite month?
August [birthday]!
3. What store is most represented in your wardrobe?
4. How many times do you go to the movie theater each month/year?
1-3 times a year
5. Fill in the blank- I've never been able to ___________________
Stay caught up on laundry!

I haven't disappeared!

Please don't give up on me! I haven't posted in a few days due to a conference the graduate students have to organize.  Now that it's over, I have to start studying for my Neuro/Motor Speech Disorders midterm on Thursday.

Sorry everyone!

Bathroom storage

...okay no, this isn't hung in my bathroom, but I'm trying to refrain from putting more holes in my walls since I'm going to start packing next month.

 I found this sign from Dollar Tree. I painted it black then covered it with gray fabric.

I just Gorilla Glued 3 mason jars on it and done!

I know one will have Q-tips, one with cotton balls, but the clue. Suggestions?

I know it will look so cute when it's hung up, but that will have to wait until February :(

Suitcase makeover

I love the look of painted suitcases.  I've had this one for awhile that I picked up for $2 at the SA.  I found a great friend for it at Goodwill and then some guy came up to me telling me it was his (when I watched him abandon it) after he saw me open it.  He told me didn't think it opened and now he wants it.  I was so shocked I didn't react, and just let him have it. :('s before

...and after

I like it! It matches my throw pillows perfectly (more perfectly than the paint I had Home Depot "color match").
