the project that never ends...

i have a combined final creative project for two of my classes that is dragging out into eternity.
but today, i finally finished part of it...the felt board!
i am seriously indebted to mike who helped cut out little animals
+ didn't mind when i came over with a huge bag bursting of felt + hot glue guns.

however, i still have so much to do...
i realized today that this little calvin + hobbes snippet basically sums up my attitude towards school work:

Calvin: I work better under pressure.
Hobbes: Actually, you work only under pressure.
Calvin: That way, the work time is more miserable, but there's less of it.

well, best get back to work! ciao! 

ps. thank you for the birthday wishes yesterday - it was a lovely day! i will post pictures of mike's romantic little birthday surprise for me soon...


  1. Good luck with your work! Love the felt board - you and mike are so talented. It reminds me of the felt board my mom has (she's a second grade teacher in Maine)! Also, thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, friend!

  2. YES oh my gosh those quotes completely summarize my life right now!!!

  3. Oh Calvin and Hobbes. So funny and so true. Lovely work! I love the little house with the clothes line.


    p.s. Did you happen to enter my giveaway yet? You don't want to miss this one!

  4. you are so talented.

  5. That is the most adorable felt board...probably that I've ever seen. Aren't bf's who help out the best!?!?!?!

    ps my post was about my brother, Matt, who is serving a mission in Uganda, Africa for our church. Missionaries are gone for 2 years, and although it seems like a long time, it's probably the best two years of their lives. He absolutely loves it there and the time has honestly flown by. We get to talk once a week via letters and emails. If you have any other questions just let me know.
    you can send them to


  6. wow you're so talented, I love that!
