Awesome Thing: 2

Having a Good Sense of Style

Wine Date

I love, love clothes and I'm super glad that I'm a cheep shopper. I can find A-mazing deals on top notch brands. My fave stores are Tommy Hilfiger, Banana Republic and Aeropostale. I love having a great sense of style for many reasons. The one being the fact that no matter what embarrasing thing I might end up doing, I'll look good doing it. I don't keep up with the trends n'all that stuff, I just like feeling unique and myself.

Having a good sense means dressing like yourself.

I'm not bragging but I'm being thankful that I was able to grow up with a mom who told me how to dress. I'm glad that she was there to tell me fashion don'ts and to tell me about all the great stores out there. But most importantly, she taught me how to bargain shop.

So I would pray that all of you would be able to experience a visit with the best fashion consultant- your mom/dad. They've been through it all- the good, the bad and the ugly.

Awesome Thing: 1

Today is the start of my christmas break awesome challenge.

Awesome thing number 1 is 

Mean Teachers Who Help You In The Future

In grade 10, I had this not so very nice drama teacher. Now, the thing you need to know is that I have stage fright. So what exactly was I doing in Drama. No, it was not an accident or the usual mistake that the school system can make- I made that choice to take drama class in grade 10. You see, I had to take an "art" to pass highschool and since I can't sing or draw/paint/use pastels, I was stuck with taking drama. This teacher would yell at you for making to much noise with your pencil. I know. 

But you know what? She was so mean that she got me over my stage fright. Like honestly. I can know do so much infront of a group of people without worrying. And why is that? Because no one can make me feel as uncomfortable on stage as that drama teacher would make me feel. 

Today, I performed at my highschool talent show with confidence. I did the song Don't miss it by Francesca Battistelli in ASL (American Sign Language).

River of Lights Holiday Show at Albuquerque’s Botanic Gardens.

I follow this blog/website Kevin and Amanda and todays post was amazing. As you can already tell by the title, it's about this amazing lights show. Here are a few photos a snatched off of her website and so all the credit goes to Amanda and her mad photo skills.

I especially love the bear on the rocking horse.
For all those music lovers. I think this is so cute
This is inside a lighted castle that was guarded by soldiers. "Spooky" as Amanda said. 

I will end this post with a song i heard at the christian club at my school. Christmas must be something more by taylor swift. Thank you taylor for making the message clear to everybody. I'm glad that taylor wrote this song since she is a huge role model in today's society and so many people will look up to her and here this message. Enjoy!

Book Of Awesome Trailer

So you all know that I've been posting about "Awesome things". Well here's the trailer for the Book of EVEN MORE Awesome. I really, really want this for christmas. Maybe this is a great idea for a last minute gift. 

I personally love this book because it helps me notice the little things in life that do matter and are there for a reason. I actually have made my own, very lengthy, list of awesome things in life. It took me 1.5 hrs while working at my dad's pharmacy (so that wasn't the only thing I was doing). You try it! Post your list of awesome either on your blog or.... leave one awesome thing in your life in the "comments". I will have an awesome challenge coming up that I will very much try to do during the christmas break. I will post about that later. And for now...

Want:Scrapbooking Need:Time Don't have:Time

Love these paper piecing ideas from Scrapbooketc.com

For more info on this piecing go to

For more info on this piecing go to

I'm also falling in LOVE with these scrapbook page ideas.

A great way to incorporate journalling into scrapbooking. Very cute. You can also full the rest of the page with more souvenirs and tickets/brochures.

Very cute and looks like a journal page with the "drawn" hearts and the nice font for the word smiles. To check out come really cool fonts check out Kevin and Amanda's website. 

I love, love, love cutting photos into shapes. It adds a lot of focus to a picture. I will definitely try this layout someday.

Play around with tapes and photo sizes. Looks fun and easy to make. 

Great for trips. I actually have a scrapbook paper pad with various NEw York backgrounds. I like buying my scrapbook pads from homesense and winners because I find them MUCH cheeper than the ones at Michaels. 

This one isn't anything new, I just think that it would be easy to make and looks professional. Minimal supplies needed,

Winter! Yuck! As much as I hate snow, I can't escape it. So while kids are playing outside in the snow, I think I'll be drinking hot chocolate and making this fun looking scrapbook page.

All photo layouts are NOT mine but found on scrapbooketc.com. I would recommend that every scrapbooker, whether beginner or advanced, should check out this magazine or at least the website.
