Stormy Weather

Wooo! Northern California is getting a series of intense storms this week. Today began the first of 6-7 storms. The blue sky is peaking out for now, but soon the rain clouds will come pouring back in.
I recently got a Flip camcorder for Christmas here is a video of the rain....

The dark clouds remind me of the Pixar short "Partly Cloudy" on the movie "Up!" if you haven't seen it yet, go watch it!!! The short was adorable and I just can't look at a grey cloud the same way again :)

Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010!

Well, I promised pictures of some Christmas presents, and now that it is no longer 2009 or Christmas time I think it is safe to post these beauties!

Exhibit A: The homework monster for my cousin Thea. He is adapted from an Urban Threads design. She is currently attended UC Berkley getting a double Masters! I feel her pain and made her the amazing homework monster. The best part is I made him bendable and magnetic!!!

Exhibit B: This is an old Speech Therapy card from 1974! I found it while doing my student teaching. My uncle's John and Garrett have three chickens I helped take care of. Thus, I thought they would enjoy this, I made the chickens true to life (Henny-Penny red, Pumpkin is Orange and Claudia is Black & White!)

I am currently on vacation in San Diego and did not bring my crafts with me so I had a chance to truly relax. However, when I return to San Jose school starts back up again with hurrican force and I am afraid I will not longer have time to craft :(

5 more months until I am done with school and will have more time and money to CRAFT! I can't wait!
