Working Away

Firstly thank you for the lovely comments and kind words you've given me. It really means alot to be open up and be honest and get such loving people wishing me well. Thank you.

Also kudos to all the blog love going on around here, there are such amazing people out there going through hard times and even more amazing people supporting them and sending them all their loving.

I'm just one monstrous final away from freedom and about 6 gifts away from my handmade Christmas finish line. So while I turn my brain to mush trying to remember how Shakespeare dissects the role female chastity plays in the foundation of social scripts in Much Ado About Nothing, Ill be thinking about how much fun I had making this baby Sunday night.


It just took some broken jewelry, inexpensive finds, $3 starter kit, needle nose pliers, MUSE blaring from my radio and about and hour and a half to make it! It's going to take a lot of self control to keep this in my white elephant gift exchange basket and not yank it out of a family members hands, pull it over my head and run around the house screaming "I MADE IT! IT"S MINE!!"

Here's to loving the giving aspect of Christmas more than getting, to finishing the semester, and to making it a more positive-love-filled world!
