Hello August!

Alright... so here I am, posting. Keeping up so far with my vow to post daily in August. Lately I've been feeling a huge lack of creativity and had been becomming very frustrated (I have been trying way too hard to force it), but last night I stumbled across this blog and was so inspired by almost everything this awesome woman does! She is the writer of "bend the rules sewing" - a book I coincidentally have been eyeing for a while now. I spent about an hour reading her blog (I love finding a really good blog and going back as far as I can reading it) and after that I had so many fun ideas swimming around in my head that I had to pull out a notebook and write them down or I would forget most of the awesomeness by morning.

So, since I joined the big blog challenge for August.. here is today's entry. We were told to go draw a house at This is my house and what it says about me.

Based on your drawing and the 10 answers you gave this is a summary of your personality:

You are sensitive and indecisive at times. You are good at making friends and when the joyful moment arrives, you make the most out of it. You love your house and family. You are a gifted artist as well. Once you have a problem, you need a friend with you. Your life is always full of changes. You are very tidy person. There's nothing wrong with that because you're pretty popular among friends. Your life is always full of changes.

You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. You see the world as it is, not as you believe it should be.

You added a flower into your drawing. The flower signifies that you long for love. It also safe to say that others don't see you as a flirt. You don't think much about yourself.

Interesting. It's fairly accurate for the most part. Funny that analizing a little doodle can tell you so much about yourself :P

Last night I discovered that as a free member on flickr I can only have 3 photosets, and I got pretty bummed because we can't afford the $25 right now for me to register... BUT! MATT GOT A NEW JOB!! He is going to be making *alot* more than he is now - almost Alberta wages. Plus, the hours are 9-6 M-F and he will get full benefits and RSP contributions. Faaancy. It's in the investment field. When he came home from the interview, they had given him a little tin of 'investMINTS'. I thought it was clever and based on that I decided they must be a very good employer. They had also given him a fancy notepad, pen and folder. When I found that out after seeing the mints, I was practically over the moon about this new job. Yes, I am obviously one of those people easily swayed by cororate bribery, no matter how insignifigant. Anyways, the point of that long winded paragraph was that SOON I can buy a better flickr membership and start posting photos like crrraaaazy! My plan is to buy a DSLR after our wedding.

Anyways.... much to be done around here... until tommorrow my friends ;P
