Wedding Craft War (1st battle)

Those of you who don't know, my precious little sister-cousin is getting married! Needless to say, it is wedding warrior time. My other precious cousin, April, crafty ninja extraordinaire, and myself are getting to work on all the little projects for the BIG DAY. Here is one ADORABLE craft that the bridesmaids and flower girls will be wearing in their hair. She (Kara, the Bride) is going for a very "Anthro" wedding and I found this on the internet and immediately thought: 
          "WE could make that." 
                                   (picture from the internet) 
SO, HERE WE ARE.. ALL TOGETHER... CRAFTING TILL WE DROP. Here is a step by step guide of how I made it and the finished product. 

FIRST: We are using Peonies for the flower. (Silk)

Then cut the flower off the stem so it will lay flat. (wire cutters)
Take a 2" in diameter piece of felt and glue it to the back to keep the flower intact. 
Now that the flower is flat and the felt is glued, take wire and measure for the head. Then take the wire and glue it in between the first piece of felt and a second piece of the same size. 

After it dries, measure again and then cover the ends where the wire meets with floral/flower tape. (IDK what it is called.) And you're finished! 

Here is how it looks on: 

That's my hot mom.
Here are the ones for the bridesmaids and flower girls

Last night revealed something very important: always open your mail.

After opening the stack of mail my mother brought to me over holiday I found something from DPS in the state of Texas. My license has been suspended. For some VERY odd reason, I'm not really freaked out by this. (like I should be)
In any case, had I opened my mail on time I would have realized that the whole "Don't Mess With Texas" slogan was in fact very true and also applied TO Texans, not everyone else AND that taxes are a big deal too.
Apparently, even if you make like... NO MONEY but still have a job, you have to do something with your taxes. According to Suzanna I have to file something. Who knows? Well, long story short, didn't open that mail either and am in trouble for that as well.
Becoming an adult is probably the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I suppose it could be much worse. I suppose I could be in jail. That would be really terrible. Until I get all my "business with Texas" worked out I'll just lay low for a while and continue hiding from my criminal record here at good 'ol Oklahoma Christian! Spring Break should be interesting. Maybe my next blog post will be about my new friends I met in the joint while doin my time! (sounds pretty hardcore.)

just SMILE and DEAL with it. (Spring Sing brings out the worst in some people)

Hello friends,

It's been a while, what can I say... I've been busy. But last night (while having an emotional breakdown due to a freak out from my crAzy boss) I read my extremely funny and brilliant friend, Suzanna Sawyer's blog. It inspired me to post something.
(Here goes a pitiful attempt to blog.)

Spring Sing is upon us, (now almost finished) and I'd like to give a little shout out to all of the clubs for their hard work and... creativity? There's something about jumping up and down, waving your arms and screaming at the top of your lungs. Clearly Spring Sing is OC's artistic outlet. I mean let's be real, it's not like we had anything better to do than completely give up our lives for 5 and a half minutes of butchering pop songs and making random formations on a slanted stage. Never have I been so affected by "mob mentality" before in my entire life. For some reason I willingly wore white, elastic waist pants, a hawaiian shirt with a FANNY PACK, I repeat, FANNY PACK and a Grandmother Willow Wicker visor in front of the entire church of christ population in the state of Oklahoma. That, my friends, is Spring Sing.

Spring Sing is OC at its best.

Spring Sing is young men and women spending HOURS and HOURS of time creating something completely meaningless with no real value for life... at all.

Spring Sing is taking some everyday concept or character and desperately trying to make it interesting. For instance: Godzilla, Cops, Football, Tourists, Football, Miss America, Football, Minnie Mouse, Football, Football and Mummies. How can any of those things be interesting enough to spend half the semester dancing and screaming about?

Spring Sing is the only time at OC it is acceptable for guys to wear make-up, costumes, dance around, sit on each others laps and hold hands and NOT get "gay probation" for it.

Spring Sing is the only time at OC when a group of girls can pretend to be football guys and not get "gay probation" for it.

Spring Sing is the only time at OC when you can get away with dressing like a lesbian and not get "gay probation" for it. (IOTA COSTUMES)

As the great Lady GaGa has auto-tuned to the world: "whether gay, straight or bi, let's be a transgender vibe."

I can only wish that for this final day of Spring Sing performances. Let us bask in the glory of fun and fellowship and waste our time doing a whole lot of nothing in front of a whole lot of people.

A dear friend of mine (whom shall remain anonymous) said this of Spring Sing:
        "Spring Sing is one of those things that you can't over analyze or else you start thinking: WTF??"

Yes I have said some pretty horrible things about Spring Sing, but in truth, it is a completely harmless ploy to recruit innocent and naive high school seniors and in the process, we get to have a good time.
