{project prompt} & {getting ready}

so i have a confession. i've never actually made anything for a prompt before. so that project that i mentioned yesterday (for the art is found) was a totally new experience for me, but yes, it did get done! in one day, no less (this is a rareity, but if it didn't get done today or tomorrow it wasn't going to get done at all). i wasn't expecting to like what i made, but surprises of surprises, i did! i was really drawn to the colors in the boden catalogs i saved (love love love!), so i decided to do a mini on my obsession with color. the hardest part, i think, was the button and ribbon, inspired by a journal i gave my sisses for christmas two years ago from ten thousand villages (which, by the way, is a totally cool company you should fully check out). so here are some of the pictures (the rest are on my flickr):
in other news, i went to target today to get ready for my trip! hooray, everything is finally falling into place. the most hilarious part of the day was how we decided to make my bed (since i am not going to get one there!) so that it could fit into my suitcase-we bought a floaty raft for my mattress and then a cheap throw pillow for couches for my head. at least i color coordinated them! *sigh* this is going to be a memorable trip. ciao.
