Balloons!


























There were people just walking around Mill Avenue with huge strands of balloons attached to their backs...???

Birthday Sweets from Smeeks!


























My Mom's Birthday was on Thursday, but we all celebrated it tonight.  I put together this box of candy from Smeeks and gave it to her for her Birthday.  I saw our photobooth picture while I was there...it made me smile. :)

Old magnet board



This is what it looked like before I redesigned it to match my Ikea duvet.

Raccoon & Owl



I made these guys last spring. You know, before I was in school and actually had time to do fun things.

BBQ Invitations





















My Mom is having a Barbecue on Sunday after the wedding for the families.  She thought it would be a fun way to end the wedding festivities, so everyone could see Megan and Dan one last time before they all go back home.  I made these postcards to mail to everyone inviting them.

Megan's Wedding Mailbox





















My Mom and I made this for the gift table for people to put cards in for Dan & Megan.

I'm so excited to turn this into some kind of Thanksgiving centerpiece.

2am Waffle House Feast

Close-Up of my button pocket



Yours are all someplace else, because they wouldn't fit...you can see them on the magnet board picture if you look really close, though :)

The extent of our Halloween decorations.



Actually there's also a plastic pumpkins. And all of them are Adam's.

Robot Keychain



I bought this little guy for myself in Christmas 2007. I loved him so much, but then the clasp broke. I hung him on my bulletin board because I can't bear to throw him away.

I've been summoned

Alice Plate



I'm going to put this on my Ikea bookshelf as soon as I get a plate stand for it.

For my dining room wall?





















I have to finish putting buttons on the middle frame, but what do you think?

PUMPKINS!


























I spray painted pumpkins with my sister today.  She spray painted hers gold and silver, and as you can see I went for something a little more brighter!  I am currently obsessed with spray painting.  I put these outside my apartment door.  I have two more in my apartment on my counter. : )

At the Rockies game



Adam promised me he'd buy me a foam finger if the Rockies made it to the playoffs. It's probably my most favorite thing I've ever had.

Moved some more stuff around


























My original idea was to put the locker here, but it was too big.  So, I switched it out with my green table.  That's the ottoman I spray painted the other day, and I just got that lamp at Ikea!

Because if there's snow on the ground...



you need to worry about keeping your beer cold. (True story: by the time that beer was nearly finished, ice was forming on the edges. It was like, 25 degrees and we were at a football game.)

Retro Locker


























Finally got the Locker into my apartment...I decided to put it in my bedroom instead of the living room.

Christina on the Sand Dunes



This is from my birthday. We went camping at the sand dunes in southern Colorado, and it was pretty cool. It's like being in the desert right next to the mountains.

An old one, but a good one.



I have had a lot of school work, so my picture-taking is pretty much not happening. Instead I'm going to keep posting a bunch of old pictures to make up for it. I'm sorry!

Anyway, I thought you'd like this. It's the birthday cake I baked Adam in May (his birthday was on Armed Forces Day, get it?). I got the US-shaped cake pan at an antique show.

A funny trio of buttons
