Life dump: October

So what do you do when you’ve had a heartbreaking month? (Like, hypothetically low grades and not being able to participate on a particular craft fair. Hypothetically.) I compile a list of good things that have happened this month to at least cheer up a hypothetically sad me c:

Meet “Obo” our (surprisingly!!) working DC motor. This was a requirement for school and thankfully my friend E really spent time on making it and she was being really OC and yay it worked! Also, the robot design is really cute, don’t you think?

Surprise cheesy greeting cards are the best.

And of course getting a free shopping spree c/o J c: And he was the one who insisted we go shop! Cutie. These are just a few things we bought. I think the chocolate shop shaped tin can was really adorable, not to mention I love these kinds of drawing styles. We also found giant pretty tape! It’s as thick as a packaging tape roll! Also birthday toilet paper. I should bust this out everytime someone’s celebrating. It’s so coooool. Allof these we bought in Landmark Trinoma c:

I also made this chubby panda (pattern here.) Three words: squish, squish, squish.

I also finally got around to doing a friend’s palanca stationery using my gocco! I… kind of want to keep these for myself because doilies + neon = looooove. at first I thought it was a craft fail because of all the carbon bits that stuck to the screen, but I guess it went better than expected.

While we were hanging out at the techprep room we spotted a few pages of an old, worn dictionary. Of course I had to get it, I love ephemera.

Oh and I think the best part of it was this:

Hihi, hello brother. This is why you should wake up earlier.

Maybe October wasn’t so bad after all. :)

10a Alabama, here I come.

I am jumping up and down right now.

 

Like, JUMPING UP. AND. DOWN.

Why? Because i’m going to my first ever craft fair this November, that’s why! Woo, okay I know I haven’t been posting a lot because life (school, ergh) is keeping me busy. But! I have a loooot in store, probably after the fair though, because I have a lot of work to do (and not a lot of time, honestly.)
