Random Inspiration...

Fifi Lapin:
The most fashionable little bunny I've ever seen! Lives with her adorable dog Stella, kisses her romantic boyfriend Sonny Hare, and hangs out with her best friend, Ruby Gatta. To top it off, she has an amazing fashion sense. Visit her blog at fifi-lapin.blogspot.com OR buy her drawings/cards/photography at iheartfifilapin.com

Finger painting:
I've had this sudden inspiration to start... finger painting. Call me weird, but I still have a love for sticking my fingers in paint and slabbing it on paper. So, I sent my mom out to get some acrylic paint and canvas paper (NO paintbrushes). Once I get going on my new hobby, I'll take pictures of my paintings and share them with you all!

Bringing my designs to life:
I have this purse pattern that I've been meaning to start sewing. So, I'm going to get my butt down in the basement and start Once I get pretty good, I'll see if I can learn how to make my own patterns. But, I'll start off easy and start bringing my math grade back up to an A.

That's all for today, folks. :)

I have to get ready to go to my friend's house to watch the premier of JONAS!

200th Post = Yours!

Here is a peek into the lives of my friends. (In order of when they commented)

Date Written: April 27th, 2009

Heyy! So...nothing is really happening in my life. I just ordered some stuff from ShopBop and Juicy Couture. I had an orthodontist appointment at 2:00 today...and...umm...I'm on Polyvore right now! [actressca11.blogspot.com]

Um I don't I don't really have an interesting life right now. I will be posting on my blog any minute now so just check it out to get the scoop. [diaryofafashionfreak.blogspot.com]

Heey! I posted on my blog and have been on Polyvore. My brother and Bob are watching some Da Vinci special on T.V. I have a science quiz I REALLY have to study for too. Math STAR testing is freaking me out as many of you know-I've complained enough! I started my new farewell phrase too. You'll see it at the end of the post. Today was fine. There are ghastly winds outside. I'm afraid a tree will fall over! I have 2 hrs of math tomorrow, aah! We have the block schedule for 3 WHOLE WEEKS!!! I have to go or my mom will start complaining soon. :-)

kiss kiss,
dara [poofalicious.blogspot.com]

Hey, It's me, Madi! Umm . . . right now I'm obsessed with listening to music. There are no important loves in my life or any tattoos I currently have. Wow, this is hard. Oh, I know I have a new best friend, well, friend . . . her name is Victoria. She's super awesome and should totally be the head cheerleader of her school's football team in high school. YAY Victuoria! Also, were doing STAR TESTyING right now, talk about tedious. Yup, oh and I'm going to save the world and become a billionaire by the time I'm 13. How, you ask? Well, in Current Events we had to invent something to help e-waste(unrecycled electronics) get recycled properly. That's my story. Soon I'll be able to put my Nobel Peace Price next to my huge collection of a total of 4 trophies. Pathetic, right? L8r G8r [sugpower.blogspot.com]

Make "Just Keep Swimming" Your Blog, too!

I have nothing to write about because everything in my life is either WAY too personal or just plain boring.

So, YOU write! Make a brief summary of what's happening in YOUR life. Make it short and sweet!

It's pretty simple if you have five or ten spare minutes. Just comment below with your blog post and I will post it in my next post. You have three days to accomplish this!

-No cursing
-Nothing inappropriate
-Good grammar, punctuation, etc.
-Write well! Most of you are in my grade or older!
-No personal information
-Remember to say your name and (this is optional) your state

Have Fun! They will be posted ASAP in one big post!

I found this.

My dad and brother with Twiggy in November.
Thanks for The Memories.

I ended up having a really fun night on Saturday and even more fun the next morning. :)
