Another decision... ear piercing!

Sorry for the long wait for another post. I've been so busy!
Well, it's my birthday on the 9th of November, so I decided I'd go and get my ears pierced.
For the first time.
Well, all I ask for is some advice, good luck and stories of when you got your first piercing.
Also, for your own information, this will be the first and last.
I do not wish to have another, but I don't take any offence to those who do.
You still look great with a trillion piercings but this blog isn't a monologue of my piercings.

the act of pulling out teeth

It was such a weird sensation, I got anesthetic in my gums and cheek, and this process took so much longer then the teeth pulling out. I was so nervous my legs were shaking, and afterwards I felt very faint. Weird. Now my mouth's all numb, and I'm talking like a drunk. If you were to see me, you'd laugh so much! I definitely have been!

Weekend project: I ♥ clouds

Good morning (those who are Australian) and good evening those who are not....
I am presenting you this weekends craft challenge:

I know, I know. Clouds may seem boring. I mean, we see them every day right?
Well, lets make them a bit more crafty. A bit more inspirational.

Ok. So if you're having some troubles, here's what I did:

Stuffed clouds
(can be used as a brooch, hairpin, cushion or mobile)

You will need:
  • cardboard or hard paper
  • scissors (paper and fabric)
  • white felt
  • white embroidery string
  • multicolored embroidery string (optional)
  • beads (optional)
  • tough string (optional)
How to make it:

  • draw up your pattern (this will just be a basic cloud picture) onto cardboard, hard paper or just plain paper
  • cut it out with your paper scissors
  • pin or hold onto your white felt
  • cut two pieces out
  • (optional: if you want to embroidery a pattern on your cloud, do so now)
  • align the two felt fabric pieces together, and stitch around the outside
  • make sure you leave a whole for the stuffing (and, optional: for some string to go through, if you want it to be a mobile)
  • stuff the stuffing inside (optional: and string)
  • sew up the gap
  • (optional: if you want to make it a brooch, sew a brooch pin on the back. if you want it to be a hair clip, sew a bobby pin or plain clip on the back. easy!)
  • now you're done!
Show me what you came up with this weekend!
Please feel free to post a picture of it in my flickr group:

I ♥ We ♥ it (doodle)

'heart' here
'french boy fashion' here

'untitled' here
Poisoned apple, here

Dear readers,
I am so sorry for the lack of posting recently. Everyone seems to be in an end of year crisis in terms of busy-ness, and I'm certainly in that realm at the moment. But, just to entertain you, and to produce a quick and easy post, I thought I'd show you my favorite 'we heart it' images associated with 'doodle'.
I love to doodle.
