April: Week 1

This month on Instagram, I'm doing a Photo-A-Day challenge

01. Something Purple 
  Pretty Roses.

02. In My Hand 
 Painting!! I have a super fun project I'm working on, and I'm definitely going to share it with you all once it gets a little closer to being completed. :D

03. Shapes 
 It snowed. Again.

04. Good Together 
Packing for the weekend, and I couldn't decide which necklace/earrings to bring.

05. Not Mine 
(I do however own a similar Russian doll.)

06. A Taste Of Spring 
 ...Minnesota Spring, anyways. 
I did see some green grass today while we were collecting maple sap, so maybe Spring isn't as far off as it feels. (I also walked through snow so deep it went down my mud boots, but that's irrelevant. ;P ) 
 You can do it, Minnesota! Fighting!!

07. Where I'd Rather Be
I'd rather be Adventuring in Narnia. ;D

high-low // a skirt refashion

I picked this skirt up at a thrift store a year or two ago, because it was free, and hey- who doesn't love aqua + polka dots? 

I ended up not wearing it very much after I got it, however; it's 100% polyester, so... it was kinda like wearing a shiny sheet, and in general, I prefer my skirts either knee length or floor length, and this one fell awkwardly in between. 

So I decided... I'll turn it into a high-low skirt!

Actually, I decided that ages ago, but I've only just been brave enough to actually cut it up, and now that's it's high-low I don't mind it being synthetic material quite so much. :D

What I'm wearing: 
Sweater ~Pout -Handmedown? (I actually have no idea where I got this sweater...) 
Graphic Tee ~Fang -Thrifted
Skirt ~Chaus -Thrifted/Refashioned by Me 
Leggings ~Bozzolo -Gift
Boots ~Bernardo -Thrifted 
Scarf -Gift 
Earrings/Ear Cuff -Gift 

side note about my hair:
waves/frizz leftover from yesterday's braided updo
divided it in half from ear to ear, & put it into two ponytails, 
 then made two buns, and jabbed pins into it until it stayed up. :)

Upside-Down Dutch Braid Tutorial

: one year :

So... this time I have a legitimate reason for dropping off the face of the earth.

My laptop DIED.
It had been working totally fine, and then one day I went to turn it on, and nothing happened. Black screen of death.
Well then, aren't you glad you have an iPod? you may be thinking.
The. Very. Next. Week.
My iPod home button = Broken.
(I really am careful with my electronics, truly!)

So, I sent my iPod in (thankfully the warranty was still good) and they sent me a replacement, and currently I'm using an old spare laptop that met with A Tragedy, which caused the screen to go wonky- but hey, it works! and the computer shop in town was able to pull all my pictures, writing, etc off my laptop, so that's good.

Other than that... I've been busy lately, but mostly with boring stuff- unless you want to hear about the various ways we've been preserving our bountiful harvest of tomatoes and other veggies.
But mostly tomatoes.

Also, today it's been one year since I chopped off 30" of my hair.

In Which I Share Pretty Pictures

After going roofing with my dad and brothers earlier this week, I got so sore and stiff, that I feel like an old lady- so I decided it was time to re-read Howl's Moving Castle. ^_^
If you've read this book- here's a few of my favorite fan arts for you to enjoy, 
and if you haven't, (WHY NOT??) maybe it will pique your curiosity.
Seriously. Read it.

I'm not really a huge fan of the movie, but there's so much fun fan art from it, so I couldn't help but include one...

(if you'd like to see more of my favorites, here's a link.)
