That hiatus I took was even shorter than I imagined it would be. The days went by too fast. I have not accomplished all that I dreamed I would at this point. Oh, well. It's summer and I'm lazy. At least my desk is more or less clean! That is if you discount all the various art supplies strewn atop it.
I got back from my friend Regina's birthday party/sleepover an hour or so ago. We had watched Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Hercules and The Emperor's New Groove (while snacking on delicious, homemade rice krispy treats of course) as part of pseudo-movie marathon last night. We played a pretty fun game of Apples to Apples, too. I was not tired at all, and thus stayed up until about 5 am, talking and laughing with three other girls who had the same problem going to bed. It was great. The waffles, bacon and orange juice for breakfast were heavenly.
I made this Mockingjay pin for Regina because she loves that The Hunger Games books and I wasn't sure what else to get her besides dollar bills that I creatively packaged and then hid about her room. She loved both.
Now I want to make a pin for myself, or for other people, like Scarlett, who has recently fallen in love with the trilogy. Anyone else interested?
I will catch up with everyone's blog posts soon. I missed everyone, even though I was only gone for, what, five days?
P.S. I'm watching season one of Heroes on DVD. So, so good. Apparently season two is crap, though. Is that true?
