Snow today so I've been under covers ever since I got off work. There's been talk of a photo shoot tonight...we'll see what happens. I made two dresses that I just cannot decide if I want to sell or not. They're pretty much the best things I've ever made and you might think that I could just keep one of them but I can't even decide which one. My life is in turmoil over this. The woes of a seamstress.

Maybe I'll have a vote? It's not like I can rely on myself to make this decision.

I found out about Poladroid and I've been changing pictures into Polaroids ever since. Of course it isn't as satisfying as the real thing, but I'm into it. I am.

Tonight I'm Reading

I must say I have been decently productive lately, what with putting up pictures on etsy and officially having my store running...although not quite selling yet. I even made two skirts for myself, but they were experiments so the one I'm not sure if I'll ever even wear it. What can I say, it's the holiday season and no matter what I do - there is always so much more to do. I spent the night contemplating all the things I will do tomorrow, but who knows what will really happen. Probably naps. Maybe two of them.

Anyway I did organize all of my teeny tiny sewing items into a great big sewing box that my grandma gave me last weekend. There is still a lot of space to fill, but I have decades for that to happen. I also found a book that I had forgotten about (I love when that happens). It's called The Tightwad Gazette: Promoting Thrift as a Viable Alternative Lifestyle. Great stuff, especially since I am officially on a budget - which is the positive way of putting it. My real problem is I will celebrate the fact that I did so well not spending money. I didn't spend any money at all for about 3 days so I went to Border's and bought a craft magazine. Unnecessary to say the least. And to make it worse I haven't made anything out of it yet....which Nick said he knew would happen.

There is one thing that really did make my week though. My good friend Steph asked me to be her maid of honor in her wedding next year! I started thinking of good websites to look up how to make centerpieces and the other fun things you need for weddings...and then I remembered I GET TO PLAN THE BACHELORETTE Party!!! Soooo exciting. I also need to look up how to be a good maid of honor, because I really know nothing about the position. Any advice? It was ridiculous how many times I wanted to say that I felt honored to be the maid of honor, but yeah I really did.

cool stuff.
