Dear charlie,

wohoo! 2 letters in 2 days =D ..so surprised when i checked my mail today!

I'm glad you're feeling more positive =D. Sad i don't like tea.. coffee is like a god to me though.. love coffe.. mmm.. coffee

haha your letter made me really hungry. .. i was like hm.. biscuits and ice cream.. and strawberryy.. *drool*

yeah.. i'll totally go see cars when it goes out on video, i watched the incredibles <3<3<3 when it came out in theatres, but i think it's so much better watching animated films when you're at home

I love reading! it's insane.. i like go to the library to pick up a hold and end up getting like 45 books. haha i seriously have a collection of like 20 library bags because i end up buying new ones every time i go. hehe just can't restrain myself. What are you reaidng anywyas?
hm.. recommend over holidays.. haha omg. i can't get over the whole different seasons thing..summer's here here, just have to go pick up my report card =D anyways have you read hte sisterhood of the traveling pants novels? i love those, and hm.. i was reading this really really good book a while ago.. but now i can't remember waht it was.. lalallala let's seeeeeeeee .. right now i'm reading the castle by frank kafka and nellcott is my darling by golda fried i thought was really easy to read and i finished it in one sitting. i love anything by Tracy Chevalier and omg.. hahah i love the shopaholic series..
then there's the fountainhead by ayn rand, which has some interesting theories. my favorite book for a really long time was The House Next Door by Richie Tankersley Cusick and omg.. let's stop blabbing about books for now because trust me.. i could really go on for hours. .haha booknerd Smiley

hey! this is like a week now! so u'll be in holidays now! awesome! i hope ur having a great time!

i know what you mean about the crafting.. i've been buys lately.. and havne't crafted anything for the longest time.. but now that sku will be over =D yay! i'll start crafting again

Dear Charlie.

holy crap this letter took a long time to get here! haha 23 days!

hopefully my response finds you better than you were a month ago. Of course I care about you and your life even though you're right, you don't really know me and I don't really know you.

I think it's the insignificant things that do make you crack, and if you have "cracked" by this time, I hope you're "mending those cracks" since that time. (yeah.. cheesy much? sry.. bad at explaining things). I hope your mom's feeling a little better and "mending" with you.

I'm sure you're fine at maths and you're just your own worst critic. and even if you truly do suck, hey, everybody has to suck at something, and i don't know about there.. but you can always take math at university here.

I pretty much am the like last person to talk to about relationship advice, because my "workign temporarily" but probably something i'll regret in 10 years technque is just cutting people who hurt me out of my life. So take in mind that my advice sucks crap pretty much, and the advice of ur friends is probably a lot better, but hey.. if your bf hates you for what you might have to do, you know what? he's not the right person for you. you deserve soooo much better than that, no matter how antisocial you say you are and like how sucky you are in your letters, you come across to me as an amazing person and someone who i would annoy to death until you became my friend.

I know that this response probably didn't help at all, but seriously, you come across as one amazing person and i hope your'e doing better by this time. if not, i hope ur coping and know that everyone loves you, otherwise your friends wouldn't say that they'd be there for you.

and don't worry, i woudln't show this to anyone, and it wasn't boring at all, and eww.. i can't belive you have to wear uniforms.. blehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

i love your drawings.

love always, friend

dear charlie,

argh.. i'm such a bad responder, sry! exams have been going on and i've been working a bunch, so i havne't had any time to make a response worthy of ur letters. I also forgot to recharge my camera batteries Sad but i'll definitely post pics of what you sent me when i recieve ur next letter.

hehe I love international mole day, i have like 2 friends who were born on that day.. and me being the lameass that i am.. go hahah ur a mole! even though it's a different kind of mole.. yeah.. haha i suppose you can run away now

+ of course everyone loves mix cd's.. after listening to one artist on one cd.. all the songs kind of sound the same don't you think? I love the fact that you included aussie music.. it has such a unique and like unproduced sound

I'm glad your friends are a lot better and oooooo i'm so jealous of ur laptop b-day present!

THere are so many times that i"ve felt like going burying myself in bed and just crying my eyes out, and i have done it too many times, because bleh.. i suck at not doing it. Who cares what ppl. say. Screw them, if you want to mope, mope. that's the only thing that helps somtimes. I hope you've been feeling better since may though.. *kicks herself for responding so late*

ps. I love your crazy rambling.. that's like me and my random talking.. haha this response probably ddin't make mmuch sense either

Love Always, Friend

but my interenet at home's screwed up so i'm just typing this at school, but now they're kicking me off, so i'm really really sry that this isn't a good response but i'll respond when *hopefully* my internet becomes unscrewy!

Dear Charlie,
When I first read your letter and you told me your birthday, I was like omg! that's the birthday of one of my closetst friends too! until i realized i had march and april mixed up in my head =D. Anime and manga are cool and I know quite a few ppl. who are obsessed with it but i'm afraid to start watching because I know i'll definietely get obsessed. I'm 16 and in grade 11 as well and hehe also taking chem and physics.

Your musical tastes are exaclty like mine! il ove movie soundtracks! i've been listenting to quite a few disney ones in the past few days. and the flute is awesome, i used to be in bad and play an instrument a few years ago, but i have no musical talents. Knitting is an awesome craft too.. i tried to teach myself and convinced myself i had taught myself to knit one (bad bad) purse but then forgot =D

If your'e comfortable sharing your situation with your close friend I would be only too happy to hear it. I'm not expecting anything from these letters. I would love to know anything that you'd be willing to tell me. I know sometimes it's easier to talk to an annonymous staranger than someone you actually know. I love mix tapes and cd's =D

and oh no.. i realize how long it's been since i've had your letter and not replied to it.. i'm sry!!! and happy belated birthday! and thx so much for the angel thigns! I hope your holidays went wel

and wow.. to see how long it's been that i've had your letter.. i got your other letter yesterday!

hehe i love being antisocial and yes =D i'm counting down the days until summer too =D.

i'm glad you're feeling better, and i know how you feel, so feel free to curse as much as you would like! venting helps a lot too, so feel free to do as much of that as you like.

ahhhh i love talking about the weather! i don't get why it's boring! here spring well. just being like 2 months ago and it's loverly loverly. I love winter too.. but winter without snow?Huh NO!!! that's the best part!

I love mulan! it was the first movie i fell in love with and it's the song reflection that started my love affair with music.

I love your lil crazy hair drawing =D

I hope you remain well and write soon Your letters cheered up a otherwise dismal day! and i'll write more um.. what's it called.. uh.... timely replies??

Love always,
friend

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / sock monkey craftalong on: March 19, 2006 09:15:03 PM
all rity, so i have a friend's birthday that is coming up, and i use the phrase you rock my socks wayyyyy too often.. so I thought I would give her some socks to rock. But ordinary socks would do no good.. so what better to do than waste time and make a sock monkey =D??

So I suggest we have a sock monkey craftalong. They're easy, and they can be personalized easily as well. I used a great tutorial in Super Crafty : Over 75 Amazing How-to Projects by Susan Beal, Torie Nguyen, Rachel O'Rourke, Cathy Pitters.
but there are also many other ones online which are basically all the same:

http://breezeb.tripod.com/crafts/sockmonkey.html
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51914.0


to start things off.. here's my sock monkey that looks like a cow.. and the other one that's just.. weird??
