all nighters--ha ha--get used to them...but remember that sleep deprivation causes you to work harder, forget things, and become accident prone...you might be better off getting some sleep and starting fresh--you will have a clearer head and studying will take LESS time than when you are groggy!!

and, uh, remember that procrastination is not a good thing...I know, cos I am a mega procrastinator!! hee hee

My first three semesters of college were completely made up of only sleeping on the weekends. After realizing my grades were actually suffering because of working through so many nights I vowed to never do all nighters again, and try to start my work before last minute. And it's weird, cuz sleeping regularly actually made my grades so much better.

ps-fizzledimpulse are those lip balms those blistex spa things? I love those! How can a lip balm be so smooth and clear?!

well i did end up going to bed at 4 am but this one guy didn't go to bed at all. but he is known for not going to sleep till 6am cause he was playin video games and such.  arg. i try not to procrastinate but i keep thinking i can do it later. i'm the bomb. and then nothing. Sad
someday i will get over this phase i hope.

college is rough.


i've eaten two 12 ounce bags of chocolate in the past week.

love the fabrics!

"just keep crafting, just keep crafting"

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks for posting pics, Mimik- the very night that I was going to take pictures we ran out of batteries Tongue and haven't gotten out to get more. Crazy week.
The candy is... gone Grin, the fabrics are GORGEOUS (I especially love the green and brown floral stuff! It will be a purse.), and I adore all the goodies- the gold pillow has "peace" on the other side and hangs from our bedroom doorknob and has been doing a great job reminding me to relax in the evening and stop stressing about school. I can't wait to do the embroidery, and I've never seen velvet ricrack before! how fantastic is that?
But, you didn't post a picture of my favorite item- the beautiful TREE-FREE cards!! They're absolutely stunning and when I saw the back and read that they were tree free I almost cried. In my religion trees are sacred so I try to use as little excess paper as possible and I didn't know there was such thing as cards not made of trees. It was so thoughtful of you. Thanks again!!

Ha Ha - Yeah, I don't think I took pics of everything b/c I just kept adding and adding...so glad you loved those cards.  I was looking for something w/ trees on it and could only find the deer fabric, but I couldn't find something that was all about trees.  Then I remembered these cards and I thought, if I can't find something w/ trees, how about no trees at all.  Aren't they the coolest?  They are made out of a plant called "kenaf" and I can't tell any difference between these and tree-made paper.  Here is a link to the cards I sent (I believe I sent one of each of the Dragon & Butterfly design...they have many more beautiful designs)

Yesss! I received from ClauRose yesterday and, let me tell you, it was a good day.

I got a cute little green address book (green is my favorite color) and a -gorgeous- scrapbook/album with an embroidered cover (I love embroidery!):

I also got three scrapbook kit things with paper, cut outs, stickers, etc and they are totally awesome. They've definitely inspired me to start scrapbooking again, I can't wait to get started!

I also got the Blistex Spa Effects lip balm and might I just say, SCORE. I consider myself to be a bit of a lip balm connoiseur (I'm almost positive that's spelled wrong) and these are AWESOME! So soft, so smooth, so deliciously scented! I love, love, love them. I can't figure out what the red one smells like though, and it's driving me crazy. The other three scents were listed on the back of the packaging, but not the red one! It smells so good, I want to know what it is!

Thank you so, so much, ClauRose! This package totally made my week! You sent stuff that was absolutely perfect for me, you rock!
