Cause I'm Crafty!

So this summer I have gotten into, what I like to call, a "creative kick". I have been doing so many different projects! From doing this blog to playing my violin, if it requires any kind of creativity, I'm in! Here are a few of the products of my crafty rampage!

I love to draw! This is my most recent piece. Of course, the subjects of my drawings are going to be my favorite boys! :)

I also love photography! This is my "little sister"!

I was hired to take engagement and wedding pictures for my sister's friend, Tabitha!

I decided I wanted a new makeup brush holder and thus this was born! It matches the new theme of my room! Made one for me and my sister!

Appleworks is the name of my little crafting... thing... LOL

So who hasn't been obsessed with feathers this summer? I really wanted feather extensions but didn't want to mess with getting them. Then I saw an earring on the cover of Seventeen magazine, and thus, this was born!

A doorhanger I made for my little cousin Mia! She loved it, BTW. :)

Those are just a few of my projects this summer! Have you been into any particular subject this summer?

A Little Old, A Little New

I have been a bad bad blogger! What excuse shall I use today? Vacation! :D (pics to come in the next post!)

Anyway, this past weekend was city-wide garage sales. I didn't plan on going because, well frankly, the town I live in isn't exactly the most fashionable of places... I live in a very country town you see. But Saturday I woke up and my first thought was, I wanna go garage saling! (is that even a word???) So I dragged my sister out of bed at 9 in the morning to accompany me. Such a good sister, right? ;)

Well I didn't find but a couple of things. I was actually surprised by how few garage sales there were. But I did pick up two jean pieces. This vest being one! If it's from the 90's, does that make it vintage? :)

I have been trying to find the perfect LWD all summer, and finally found it! Or two actually! And I didn't find them! My mom did!
