Daydreaming is something I’ve done since I was a little kid. It has always been one of my favorite, most relaxing things to do. It was something my siblings and I had to be good at, since we were outside for 90% of our childhood.
And since I’m MOVING OUT THIS SUMMER (!!!!!), I’ve been doing a lot of daydreaming lately….

Of course, these are all daydreams. But our house will be pretty awesome. I have some of the most creative, talented friends. And besides the two married ladies, I get to live with all of the beautiful ladies in this picture!
They are kind, considerate, encouraging, and extremely funny! And I am so pumped to get to live with them!

Spring is here! With only two weeks of actual classes left (and despite the fact that I’m taking summer classes) I can’t wait for all the fun that is bound to occur!
On that note, I’ve gathered some spring/summer inspirational freebies (by other bloggers) that I can’t wait to use!
These vintage graphics by The Graphics Fairy would look so cute framed!
Eat Drink Chic brings us some adorable Summer Floral Gift tags….
…And a party kit for a customizable “Make your own Sundaes” ice-cream party!

Are you planning any great spring/summer themed parties?
This past weekend, two of the most lovely people were married in the most lovely wedding! Joseph and Kayla Stagnaro are both loving, considerate, giving, kind, and encouraging people. Their relationship is one that our friends and I look up to. Their wedding was the perfect expression of their love and this new adventure in their life! Lots and LOTS of dancing and fun made it a great time! The Stagnaros will be very missed during their adventures in Europe! But I think their willingness to give this time in their life to serving others is a testament to their amazing characters!
I got to make the cake for their wedding. Considering that I’d never made THE wedding cake for any wedding, I was quite nervous. Plus I’d never done a three tiered cake with supports and such. I was surprised with how well it turned out! The inspiration came completely from KaylaBelle, I just executed the idea. It mimics the design of ruffles, which makes me even happier with it! Thanks for letting me make your wedding cake, Joseph and Kayla! (And thanks for having faith in me to be able do it)
I have no patience for projects that take more than a day. And I have a very short attention span when it comes to crocheting. Which is why it is a miracle that this project is even finished! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Ruffled purse:
It almost literally took me ages. I made it as part of a scholarship application, and it might eventually go on sale in our store (depending on my emotional attachment to it!). Either way, you will soon be seeing a whole new line of products inspired by these ruffles! I can’t wait!
I LOVE thrifting. Any of my friends can tell you that. I spend way too much time at Goodwill. It’s how you get all the good stuff!
I usually never shop in the clothing section of Goodwill, but I happened to glance at them as I was passing by the vests and a bit of crocheting caught my eye. I was curious so I stepped over and found what is possibly the best find I’ve ever had!
Well, apparently there are a lot of people that do.
I Love Charts is a tumblr where people can submit charts of any subject, and range from adorably cute to hilarious.
I’ve picked out some of my favorites!
I'm not sure this is a chart, but it definitely made me laugh

My heart is going to be broken 5 times in the near future when I have to give these precious babies away. I’m trying my best to find homes for them with friends so that I won’t have to worry about them. I’ve plotted ways to keep them here without my dad knowing, but I’m not sure that will work out too well.
They’re so cute right now! And they sleep like the dead. It’s creepy, I’ll pick one up while it’s sleeping and it will just hang limp. I was almost convinced that one was dead once. And they’re playing and fighting with each other. They’re too adorable.

- Embroidery thread
- Fish hook earrings (that match your split rings)

2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
That’s the entire verse.
In some translations, it’s even in parentheses.
Such a small verse, but the way it has applied to my life in the past four months is monumental.
For me (and a majority of the college students in this area) this was our first week back to school after the holidays. The delay was thanks to the Snowpocalypse (or Snowmageddon).
And since every semester is a new beginning for me, this Free-ness of the week is school themed! (sort of) Continue reading
