the future is alive today*

guys, seriously I'm so freaking inspired right now and I just want to make things into the wee hours of the morning. I want to create things and play music and eat licorice and

I need a studio full of colors and scraps and fabrics. pretties and trinkets and glue sticks for me to use. I want a wall full of paints and sequins and gems and eye candy. Mmmm. I want to make a HUGE mess and not have to worry about cleaning it any time soon because creative mess is the best type of mess. I need freedom. I need space.

i want to paint
i want to paste
i want to cut
i want to sparkle.

Let me just say that this incredible girl has captured me today and turned me around out of this not-so-much-with-the-inspiration period I've been going through. I'm serious. For our online class we had an all day crafting video chat and she was so cute and making amazing things and I was a part of it. and it was remarkable. :]

So this weekend the goal is to make things. and shop. shop for things to make things. :]
things I want to make this weekend:
*big bows and barettes
*camera strap cover with my new heidi grace fabric
*wooden toys ;]
*TAIF layout
*paper:08 layouts
*my mom's Christmas gift
*felt charms
*some Christmas cards

i basically want to radiate lovliness. <3

For tonight, I got only a FEW things done.
First, a layout for a new challenge site that I think I'm really going to get into. :] This is for the latest ad sketch at Ad This!

Alright, well that's all until tomorrow. I'm planning a trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow afternoon in addition to the one I did today, hahaha. Never too much. Today I got some label stickers, Kraft, and wooden toys for an Elsie*cake project! On the list for tomorrow: barettes, fabric, sequins. Hopefully I'm going to have PLENTY of time tomorrow. <3
