i'm not as swift and suave as you. i get it. i guess maybe you don't think of it as a form of flattery, just a form of annoyance. everything, everyone around me. right now: annoying. people are stupid. like it's something they don't want to and are so unadventerous and don't want to step outside that little box they call home. well here's an update for you: by being as precautious as you are, it's no wonder you have never had a relationship outside of your mother and your friends. baby steps and stop, look and listen will not get you anywhere in life. and you: i don't even know where to begin. you annoy the crap out of me with some of the things you do. there's not even a category or words for what you do. and finally... you. i love you to death but sometimes you drive me crazy because you don't understand that sometimes i need help and i'm not a good as you. maybe you aren't as good as i think but who am i to say. but no one cares! no one! no one is sorry and no one cares about anyone else even when they claim to. they don't. seriously- think about it.
whatever. i don't want to talk tonight.

i vow

i vow to brush my hair more often this quarter. i vow to go to bed early and get more proper amounts of sleep. i vow to eat healthier and maybe even lose five lbs or so. i vow to go running more often.. twice a week if i am lucky. i vow to start my 8 am's with a cup of tea, a smile on my face and a song in my heart. to play with jasper at the humane society and know that i can't adopt him and to be happy when he finally has a home. to be careful yet more adventurous. to learn all the words to bennie and the jetts, ain't gonna hurt nobody and ain't my type of hype before my 21 birthday so i can perform them half intoxicated. and lastly, but it should be first, i vow to like love my artwork.

some good advice

if traveling through an airport, wear socks. you have to take your shoes off at security so they can make sure you don't have any knives or bombs hidden in your soles. want to guess how many of those people had funguses?

i should have majored in printmaking

i am in a printmaking class right now and this is what i am doing for my final. i have four relief prints and they are acting as pronto plates- the final image is less flat and i get to use lots of color!, so i'm a fan. i pulled my first proof today and it wasn't amazing but hopefully tomorrow when i get back in there things will click together. and i have decided that mixing ink can take all if your troubles away.

ps- i am not at all interested in my photo final. i don't know what i'm going to do about that.

dream wedding ♥

i was browsing snippet & ink and found these photographs and tid-bits from this couples wedding. i assure you that mine will incorporate a lot of these ideas, including all the yellow!

each bridesmaid wore a yellow dress of their choosing. all of the flowers were done by anne appleman.

guests could take home bundles of pencils printed with "allison loves mark loves allison..." The guest book was a scrapbook that mark found at a thrift store. allison pasted envelopes into it for individual notes.
buttons with different messages - things about ohio (where allison and mark are both from), the flavor of the cake (chocolate and banana), the title of their first song, etc. - served as conversation pieces.

allison bought books for $1 from strand books and used them to give height to centerpieces. she also bought quilting fabric from purl soho, which mark's mom sewed into table runners and tablecloths. they used fabric scraps to tie pencils and napkins.
