I love summer for so many reasons. The sun (duh!), the freedom, the lack of school, chilling with friends, family... I think my very favourite part about summer (even better than the good weather. Which, by the way, is really starting to suck around here...) is time. I love having time. During the school year, I often find myself wrapped into some activity or another - homework, extra-curricular, sports, homework, procrastination, science homework (dropping science next year - amen to that!)... I love the feeling of "having nothing to do." And during this time, I love to fill it with little projects that I just don't have time to work on during the school year.
Here are two projects that I'm currently working on...
1) Sewing this pink, ruffled skirt. It reminds me of a cupcake. (Ignore my drawing - I'm trying to be "professional" by doing "sketches/flats." I fail.)
2) Painting these $6 Old Navy (hooray for 50% off clearance sales!) skinny jeans. Each leg side has a different theme - city, space, underwater, sky. So much fun to make!
Stay tuned, as these little projects will be making bigger appearances very soon!

While my parents eagerly thought that I looked "very Asian" in my outfit (um, hello? I am Asian), I decided that the silhouette reminded me of the 60s. Therefore, I was singing "Welcome to the 60s" all day. Therefore, I had to pretend I was in a Broadway musical. Obviously, this is normal behaviour... Really, I swear I'm normal!
^ If I had photoshop, I would photoshop me into a stage with huge hair and big speech bubble that said, "Welcome to the 60sssss. Dooodoooodoodododoodooo." Please use your imagination.
Matching tights with shoes. I'm kind of pretending this is a trend right now, so I don't feel like a loser going out in matching tights and shoes. I think it looks kind of cool, but I'm also getting this feeling of "Hey! It's a flamingo."
Well, I think that's it, folks! (I've never said that word before in my life. This is the first and last time I will utter the word "folks".) Hope you are have a sunny day! Because it has been raining here, and at least someone deserves good weather. So let's all hope for a sunny tomorrow! Unless, of course you like rain, in which I hope you have a rainy day... But if not... Okay, this is getting too confusing. Toodles!
