Thursday, July 21, 2011
I've recently realized that I should probably started blogging again here because sometimes Tumblr just feels too cold and teen angsty and there's all of those gifs of galaxies and anorexic people smoking and it's all just too much for me! Also, sometimes I worry that "Quirky & Co." is a stupid name, but I am learning to embrace the choices of my eighth grade self and so should you!
So here's some exciting things going on in my life: I am done junior year, I waitress at an old folk's home(LIVING THE DREAM!), and I started an Etsy shop to sell vintage because I have been hoarding stuff that I find at thrift shops that is aweso
me, but doesn't fit me and it was only a matter of time until my mom called A&E to come help me.
NOW, what I have been doing with my summer, in iPhone pictures:
I made a crop top out of this awesome fruit themed tablecoth I found at a local thrift shop. Tutorial forthcoming! No patterns required! (FUN FACT: My mom
informs me that the thrift shop where this was purchased is on the same compound as a drug rehab and in the 1970s, while shopping, a patient tried to steal
some tube tops from her hands!).
I successfully made donuts from scratch for the first time. I have now learned how to deep fry donuts and french fries and home and my life is so much better.
I turned a Mrs. Roper muumuu into a slightly shorter Mrs. Roper muumuu.
Got my hair cut. Look how windswept and cool I look! It's like you can't even tell that I'm sitting in the outdoor eating area of Chipotle!
And, finally, some hot young adult fiction to read.
How is YOUR summer going? I want to hear all about it!
