This is what I do with my life.

Today I went to a super amazing town near my house to get (a) fabric for my pillows (b) BRITISH CANDY OMGASDFGHJKL and (c) gluten free muffins – my mom’s doing.

I made some super cute pillows using some old pillows that we had on hand (shown in the picture) and a new pillow-form. I used the toaster fabric that I got a while ago and made shorts out of, and some stripy fabric, Paris fabric, and typewriter fabric. Yay!

Maltesers yay!!! (cuz you know… danisnotonfire said they were good so I had to get some… okay that’s an understatement. He didn’t talk about them… he poured a whole box of them all over himself in one of his videos)

Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ I totally forgot to post my weird dream this morning! I was going to lunch at my school and there was bubble tea (sometimes we have it, but it sounds more exciting than it actually is – it’s just really thick smoothie with tapioca bubbles – not the real thing), and this time they had jelly (yay! no more tapioca!) and I scooped a lot into my little cup and went over to get my smoothie put in, but my eyes wouldn’t open (it was actually really scary – it’s like when you’re super sleepy and your eyes legit can’t open) and so I kept moving the cup around and couldn’t get any of the smoothie. Then I walked down to the place where I eat lunch with my friends and THERE WAS A GREEN BABY RAM. Like, wtf?! And my friend petted it. And then I went to English class where I have a super scary teacher (who is actually really nice,  but she just has an angry tone of voice even when she’s happy) and I couldn’t keep my eyes open so she thought I was sleeping and I got in trouble. Yep.

P.P.S ~ Check out my youtube channel! Yay! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9OtEatbM7wnI2BxpcOZe8Q

Secret Santa and Delicious Tea

At my school, a yearly tradition is giving another student “secret santa” gifts. This year, the themes are “warm/cozy”, “tasty”, and “first letter of their name”.

For warm and cozy, I made a hat (snowflakes, if you can’t tell):

EDIT: I also knit a cute little bow tie! I’ll post a a picture sometime 🙂

For tasty, I’m giving her Starburst (her favorite candy) and some homemade snicker bars:

For first letter of her name, I compiled a bunch of “spa essentials” from Ulta’s Black Friday Sale (5 for $5) and from Target’s $1 section:

spa

Fairisle socks, snowflake socks, a face mask, red nail polish, a pumice stone, and Frosted Sugar Plum face wipes.

I also made some bags to package the gifts in – and for family gifts also. It was super convenient that Green Club at my school (which I co-lead) had a sewing party today, because I got to make 9 bags today. Hehe.

bags

I’m using the maroon shapes bag, the holiday lights bag, and the green holiday decorations bag.

Also, my dad got me some new tea! This is one of my very favorite teas, Market Spice Cinnamon Orange Black Tea. It’s super cheap when you buy loose leaf, which is great. I found this tea when one of my mom’s friends introduced me to it. Ever since, I’ve been in love with it.

C is for Cookie Exchange

This year at my church, we’re having a cookie exchange, and since I love to bake, I decided to join in.

I’m making these yummy homemade snicker bars.

And of course, I’m packaging them in cute homemade cloth bags, which I featured in one of my DIY projects.
