So, I fully intended on blogging about what I have been sewing all summer, but I guess I have forgotten how to keep up with a blog! =P Now it’s time for me to head back to school (and I’m pretty stinkin’ excited about that!) and I’m probably not going to have time to blog, so I’ll be taking a little blog break. I may post every once in a while, but we will see!


Hello Dear Blog readers!

Sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog! I have been busy finishing costumes for Music Man, working out on the Hager’s farm, doing homework for my online summer class, and getting ready to go on a little trip to visit my friend Hannah in California next week.

I have been sewing so pretty fun stuff through! Summer clothes mostly-shorts, tunic tops, and the like. When I get back from Cali, I shall post about them! My next project is an apron for my Grandma. It’ll be a fun project for sure-red and white check with back rick-rack for trim.

Oh! I also got a new little Canon point and shoot for taking pictures(Power Shot A3000 IS). I’ve really been wanting a small camera for a while that can easily be carried around for when I go places, and events and such. Now I have one, so hopefully it’ll be a little bit easier (and more motivating) for me to take pictures again. =] I love my Canon Rebel XTi, but it’s a little too big and bulky to lug around everywhere. =P

So for now, a little break from blogging! I’ll be back in a week or so!

Ready for some good ol’ summer weather in my new Saltwater Sandals. I loved them when I was little, and I still love them now! =]

Saturday, I went to the fort! It was so nice seeing friends I haven’t seen in months! It was a pretty laid back reenactment and we didn’t do much. We sat on the porch most of the day sewing and catching up on what’s been going on in our lives and such. The AI’s did some dancing and I joined in on one.

The highlight of the day–Anna, Cassie and I headed down to Owen Beach to eat our not-so-period correct lunch. It was a fun little impromptu picnic! We have always talked about going on a picnic and so we finally made it happen! People kept coming up to us and asking why we were dressed up, and so we told them about the fort and about the event that was going on. One lady even was so kind enough to take pictures for us.

After the reenactment, Anna and I did a little fabric shopping. Then we went to the mall to eat some dinner and we looked around expensive stores we never could afford to shop at. It was great to spend some quality girly time with Anna talking about school, summer, reenacting, sewing, and fashion!

Cassie looking wonderful.

All three of us.

Does facebook stalk me or what?

I went to write on a friend’s wall this afternoon, and this security code popped up. =P

“Let the word of Christ dwell within you with teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:16

The first week of my summer break is over and my second week is flying by just as fast!  It’s almost too hard to believe!

Last week, this week, and the next week or so I’ve been working on costumes for my old high school’s production of  “Music Man”.  Costuming 40-some people in less than a month has been quite the experience for sure! It’s an organized mess, but fun ever-the-less. Mom took this picture the other day when I was working on cutting out a costume for the play.


Let’s see, what else have I been up to. I’ve been working out at the Hager’s farm a little bit. Those kids are so fun (and so are their animals!). Mom and I got the garden all panted up. Now, for those seeds to sprout! Can’t wait to see what grows!

I’ve done a little sewing too. All modern sewing. I made a new top from one of my favorite patterns (probably going to make more this summer), remade a skirt that didn’t fit anymore, hemmed some jeans, and have a new skirt in the works.

Next weekend is a reenactment. (Oh, Fort Nisqually and friends, I missed you so!) Not sure what I’m going to wear and I’m hoping everything still fits right. But I know I really am in need of some new drawers. I out-grew my old ones the summer before last (despite the fact that I still wore them anyway). New drawers is frist on the list to sew this summer reenacting-wise.

I’m so not use to blogging anymore. I have forgotten to take pictures to share! =P

Guess what! My first year of college is over! It’s hard to believe that it’s over already–the year went so fast!

But oh, how I am going to miss Corban–classes, my hall, friends, I’ll probably even miss Aramark food. =P I’m sure to get bored before the second week of break is over.

So, what am I going to be doing this summer? Costumes for “Music Man” at my old high school, working at a friend’s farm three days or so a week (what a great summer job!), visiting my friend Hannah in California for a week, taking two online summer classes, and of course, sewing and reenacting! (Pretty excited about getting back into some of my old hobbies!)

Oh yes, dear readers, I started a new hobby here at college! Painting! I’m pretty excited about it; I’ve got quite a few works I’ve been working on the past few weeks and I plan on painting more this summer. And of course, I shall share my art there on my blog!

I know, I know, I haven’t posted in forever. =P  Just wanted to let my friends in the blog-o-sphere know I’ve still alive. *grins*

College is going great! I love my classes and this semester is going SO fast! It’s hard to believe that Spring Break is in two weeks and in less than two months, my frist year of college will be over. (No way! It goes so fast!) This semester, I am taking New Testament Survey of Bible Lit, Speech, Baptist Heritage, College Writing II, American Thought and Culture, Ed Tech, OPE I, and Choir.

This summer, I plan to post again on my blog. So, make sure you come back and visit in May, June July and August! I’ll try to get back into my posting habits of sewing, gardening, cooking, photography, reenacting and whatever else I happen to be doing come summer.

So, now I shall be off to do some homework!

Hello All!

I know, it’s been FOREVER since I last made a post! Over two months ago! So, I thought I’d write a little post in telling how college is going!

I so love it here at Corban! I love my classes, my professors,my dorm, my new friends. God has put some amazing people here in my life and everyday I feel challenged to learn and grow in him. I’m taking quite a few classes and my schedule is very busy! I’m taking Survey of Bible Lit, College Writing, American Thought and Culture, Intro to Education, Bible Study Methods and Choir. I am also in a musical! We are doing “State Fair” and we open next Thursday; it’s very exciting to see it all come together and experience theater differently than in High School.

I haven’t had much time between classes, homework, and rehearsals for blogging, so I probably won’t be posting here very often anymore. I’m not going to close down my blog just yet; I may decide to post every once in a while to let everyone at home know what I have been up to. But for now, I shall say farewell to blog-land! I have an exam in Survey of Bible Lit on Monday and I need to do some studying!

Thanks to everyone who have been praying for me!
