Hello there! Sorry I’ve been a little less present here on my blog this week; it’s a huge deadline week for study abroad scholarships. Fingers crossed that the essays I wrote for my few applications win over the scholarship committees! Any little bit of money towards my trip abroad is a little more peace of mind for me. I also received my arrival information today for Spain which means I can book my flight! I’m hoping to have it booked by the end of the week. This is all becoming so real now.
I started picking out luggage for travelling to Europe… does anyone have a suggestion about how to get all of my essentials there plus my crafting stuff? Oy. I’m trying not to think about the packing process yet, but I leave only 2.5 months from now. I’m thinking I’ll take a really large rolling bag, a travelling backpack that holds a ton of stuff, a rolling carry-on and my backpack. Now to come up with the lists of things to bring.
I’ve been feeling a lot better this week as well: happier, on top of things and motivated. This is a great sign! Thank you for all of your well-wishes and hugs. You’re so wonderful.
In lieu of a normal card post, I wanted to share some of the things that are on my list from Simon Says Stamp right now. There are soooo many new things, and I can’t stop staring at all of them! Hehe. The Basic Grey Little Black Dress and Picadilly collections were just added today… hot of the presses! Here are some things that I’m really excited about right now:
I’ll definitely be purchasing a lot of these on my next checkout. Just hover over the images with your mouse to see what the product is if you need more details. :)
I’ve been really on top of things and have worked really hard the last couple of days, so I actually have an evening to do only a thing or two for school. The rest of the time will be spent photographing projects, getting ahead on DT assignments and *fingers crossed* filming a video tutorial for this week. Maybe I should rename Video Tutorial Monday to Video Tutorial WheneverIhavetime. LOL! Because everyone has been so loving, patient and kind, I wanted to share a picture of Trixie I snapped today. She’s been sooo cuddley and purry lately, and I love it. She’ll climb up in anyone’s lap and just sit there and pur. She didn’t used to do that, but I think with age (she’s a whole one year old now) she’s mellowed out a little and realized how much she actually likes us. Here’s Trix at her sweetest:
Yup, I can’t get enough of that face! She was born on the first of October 2010, so we just passed her first birthday. We totally forgot about it on the actually day, but no worries… we’ve spoiled her lots by buying her new toys and giving her catnip as part of her birthday month. Ha! Thanks for stopping by today. Don’t forget to smile!
