Happy Christmas

Oh it's Christmas time! I have to say that right this second on Christmas Eve I'm not in the merriest of moods. My Christmas cheer was in short supply today. However, good things happened today.

1. I finished half of my very secret cool slippers made from granny when I say I've finished half that means I have one slipper made. Which is why there is only one shoe in this picture. I even put a lining in the bottom because granny squares are hole-y and that doesn't really work for house slippers. I'm pretty proud of them, well it.  I'm going to finish the mate after this Christmas chaos is over.

2. My friend Steph bought me District 9 for Christmas and I LOVE that movie. One of my favorite things about it is that the aliens have plain names like Christopher. If I ever meet an alien I hope his/her name is something easy like that because I like names that I can pronounce.

3. Stephenie's mom sent our family some cakeballs which are sinfully is all I can really say.

4. It's Christmas Eve and in about 8 hours I can open all my presents. I know what they are so I know how much I love them already! Like a pair of rainboots I could have used yesterday and today.......

Just for fun (and because I'm building my Christmas spirit back up). Here is a list of my FAV Christmas flicks!

1. Elf. - Love it, even when it's not Christmas!
    Fav. line = "Buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?" oh or...

2. White Christmas - Um, Bing Crosby, enough said. OH and it's my all time favorite Christmas song...just ask Jess about that some time.
3. Holiday Inn - Josh introduced me and I loved it! Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire...fabulous.
4. A Christmas Story - Such a classic! The leg lamp scene...oh my goodness.
5. How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Of course! (The cartoon not Jim Carrey) "You're a mean one Mister Grinch..." Ha it's just not Christmas without it.
6. Nightmare Before Christmas - Well, I love Tim Burton, no matter how weird he is. I have loved this movie for a long time. I'm pretty sure the first time I saw it, it wasn't even close to Christmas time.
7. Jingle All the Way - Okay, Sinbad and Arnold...HI-larious. I love it so much.
8. The Santa Claus - That little boy is so precious. And I totally wanted a magic snowglobe.

Okay...Happy Christmas everyone. I hope you watch a cute Christmas flick with your family and eat lots of food and make merry memories. p.s. It just started snowing! I'm excited but I hope I don't get stranded...or if I do get stranded in my own house I hope that Josh makes it here so he can be stranded with us lol.

Be crafty, be blessed, and have a fabulous Christmas

Just a Second

I'm just stopping by for a sec to tell you that I'm posting pics later of THE CUTEST hand warmers I made for my roomie! :-) I just finished them and I'm so I have 3 pair left to make.

I'm in the lab working on our film "Paper Box Time Machine" YAY I'm so excited we should finish tonight or tomorrow.

This is our time machine :-).

These guys were awesome, such great sports about everything (especially when they were sitting around during technical difficulties).

This is when they've just travelled back in time.

This cutie-pie isn't actually in the film but he was there everyday and he stole my heart. How adorable is he?

Be crafty!

Mamacita, Donde Esta Santa Claus

It's Christmas time :-)!! (P.S. Donde esta Santa Claus is one of my favorite Christmas songs especially the remake by Guster) This weekend was so relaxing and Christmas-y after such a nasty week last week. On Thursday, I got home a little before 6, fixed supper for the boys aka my dad and brother and watched the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert. It's four hours long and sooo good...I haven't finished yet. I want to savor every minute of it. Josh came to visit me after he dominated some Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and we watched this movie.

It's not a deep movie, it's not a holiday movie, it's has no cinematic value whatsoever...BUT if School of Rock and Almost Famous had a baby it would be this movie. I've watched it three times and I just laugh, it's hilarious.

Then, Friday my dad and I decorated our Christmas tree...I'll add a pic when I get home...I left my camera there once again. Josh came to get me and we watched this movie

It was my first time to see this one and I L.O.V.E.D. it! How cute are these Bing Crosby/Fred Astaire movies? My other favorite is White Christmas, another Bing Crosby classic. I DVR-ed it Saturday, so I'll be watching that this weekend :-).
My mom and dad took the fam shopping Saturday and I got a super cute pair of boots that I'll be wearing with some vintage 70's skirts I got from Miss Carol (THANKS!!) And I got new rainboots because my precious Japan rainboots have more holes than I can count...and that just doesn't work out in rainboots. :-(
We finished the day at J&S Italian Villa. OH MY GOODNESS, we only eat there at Christmas and it's worth the year long wait, how delicious. You should try it if you're ever in Hot Springs, your mouth will thank you!

Now, I'm back at school. I've taken two finals, worked a bit on our film Paper Box Time Machine, gave the HL blog a yuletide makeover, and now I'm going to work on some Christmas presents for my roomies. Merry Christmas!!

Be crafty!

Last day of Classes! :-)

Okay, I am so excited because it's the last day of classes. I have almost survived (Thanks Jesus!) BUT I can't stay here long because I literally have to go to lab in 5 minutes. I just want to tell you about our Secret Santa with the boys across the hall! It was so much fun, I love giving presents. I drew Josh's name, and through our many crazy times together I learned that if he was a super hero his name would be "The Chemist" and his super power would be flicking bottle caps with deadly force. SO I made him a pin out of a rootbeer bottle cap and modpodged a piece of paper in it that says "The Chemist" with a picture of a beaker and a graduated cylinder. He LOVED it. I love giving presents :-). My present was from Robin, we haven't really spent that much time together but he did an amazing job! A basket - o - goodies!! My personal favorite item is the bag of chai chocolate!!! I can't wait to try it. Anyways this has all gotten me into the Christmas spirit and I've discovered that I desperately NEED not just want but NEED a Jack Johnson Christmas amazing would that be?!? And now I must go because I'm late for lab.

Be crafty!

Happily Surprised.

So, I thought on Sunday night that this week was going to kill me or at least put me in ICU clinging to life by a thread, BUT happily, I was wrong :-). I finished two of my papers, and my early class and lab got cancelled today. So I spent a few hours last night in the library researching one of my papers and when I got back I finished up part 1 of my super secret project. It worked :-) but it looks like a true frankenstein :-( I mean it really is hopefully I'll improve greatly on part 2. Here's a hint, they comes in pairs. I should be able to work the kinks out in part 2 and then make a real product that I can actually let people see! lol I think one problem is my cheap stiff yarn. But i'd rather practice with it and then spend money on good yarn than mess up and waste a lot of good yarn on an ugly frankenstein. Anyway, I have homework to do so I'll get to it.

My friend from highschool just uploaded this on his facebook and it made me laugh out loud. So I hope you enjoy it with me today! haha

Be crafty (even if you think you don't have time!)
