Softies are fun!
I have decided to make the paper doll dress softie today. I went to Michael's yesterday to get supplies and discovered that they have a very poor selection of felt there and I also do not have a sewing machine so that is why I'm making this simple project. It's very cute though, so I'm excited! If you are at all interested, here is the book I am using for this project. It's absolutely fabulous! http://www.fredflare.com/customer/product.php?productid=3153&cat=244
I don't have rickrack yet or tiny pretty beads but I'm making do with what I have.
I was going to post pictures but my sister has taken my camera to camp and my parents are out with the other camera. Pictures will be up soon!
Personal Life stuff:
David (my boyfriend of 18 months) is leaving to go camping until Tuesday. This shouldn't bother me but I'm going to miss him terribly. I was invited by his family to come along (I did last year) but I turned the offer down because right now is my "time of the month" so I decided 5 days without a shower would be hell. His family won't let him come see me today either which is disappointing but I guess he has to get ready.
Today I had the babysitting job from hell. Oh man, I don't think any job has been more difficult than tonight! There was one family with two girls (one was 3, the other 6) and her sister's family (the boy was 1 and a half, the girl 5) and the parents were still in the house because they were having a wine tasting. The 5 year old girl wouldn't listen to me, kept fighting with the 3 year old girl, and kept crying about everything. The six year old kept throwing fits, going to talk to her mom in the other room, and would not stop whining. The other two were fine. I just felt so bad because their parents were in the other room and I wanted it to be as relaxing for them as possible. And you know the worst part? I'm babysitting all those kids again tomorrow!
I'm rethinking my major. I don't think Elementary Education is the right choice for me. I love kids to death but I have been running into so many bratty kids lately that it's becoming the last think I want to do. I don't know. I'm thinking about jobs that I can be creative in or deal with creativity like becoming a wedding planner, a graphic designer, or an interior designer. I change my mind all the time but that's what it is currently.
I think I would be great at being a wedding planner because I thrive on stress, I'm very organized and I'm detail oriented. I also LOVE weddings and everything in them (flowers, dresses, invitations, food) so I think it would be a good job for me. Graphic designer is a given if you know me ...I've taken graphic arts for three years, I got an award at my school for being one of the 3 top art students, and I got one of my pieces in the Jeffco Art Show. It would seem that graphic design is my calling, and everyone tells me that, however I just don't want to sit at a computer all day, I want to get up and interact with people and make a difference. I have no clue if I would be good at interior design, but I love to watch design shows and I'm a good artist, great with colors, and fairly good at being creative too.
I'm stressing out about all of this now though because I'm going to be going to the University of Northern Colorado next fall for Elementary Education. I know I have two years to figure out what I want to do but if I want to go to art school or Arapaho Community College with Leah (she's doing interior design there) I'll have just wasted a ton of money. You don't even need an education to become a wedding planner (if I was going to do that though I'd major in business). Maybe I'll just major in business and worry about the art aspect later. I don't know, we'll see.
Well I think I'm going to go call a friend and gossip about LOST because I still have not discussed that season finale with her yet. Peace!
