i have a friend who really likes the french revolution.

like REALLY likes it.

for his birthday, i embroidered robespierre, leader of the jacobins. i dont know much about any of this, so you'd have to ask him for details. alls i know is this is what he looks like. I traced over it with a sulky heat transfer pen, then put it on some white fabric.

here he is embroidered. he sorta looks like george washington, oh well.

then i stuck him in a shadow box, and put a frame around him about 2 inches in front of the fabric. it creates a sorta peek in kinda look.

anyway, he says he liked it so im glad! im going to make one for me with gregor mendel. ive almost finished embroidering him.

my brother (^) is moving to France. Maybe I'll go visit him.

i made this envelope for a friend from a book called "Baby Animals" nabbed from the bargain section at Barnes and Noble. Giant glossy pages with picture of cute things are perfect for envelope making.

today was a really beautiful day. at about 12 am, i posted some secret fortunes in the classrooms and outside around my school. 

"i want to meet you"

"you should be a bit nicer to people"

"going to class isn't the most important thing in the world"

"college isn't the only option."

"in 10 years, you won't remember this class, but you might remember this note"

and as i was walking back to my friend's dorm, i saw this sign. oops.

i laid in my friend's bed until 4, and then i came home and slept for a long, long time. i had a dream that someone i was supposed to hang out with that night went out of town.

i met a friend for lunch. we stopped by a bagel store and i saw a girl whom i had read about on craigslist's missed connections. someone has a crush on her but is too scared to talk to her. she matched the description on the post. i knew it was her. i told her about it and i hope she checks it out. maybe ill go back sometime and ask her about it.

and my dream from the early morning came true; the person i had made plans with went out of town!

i think it's important to leave your roommate secret notes everyday. the more random, the better. today i went to Foods of All Nations. I was psyched because they have some good european candy. also, they have cadbury mini eggs - the best easter candy ever. not those gross creamy things, these guys have a chalky sugar shell and super good milk chocolate inside. i love easter. yet another sign that i might be jesus. lets add it to the list:

1. stigmata
2. meekly nice
3. love easter (for the candy)

1. not jewish
2. dont believe in me
3. dont have apostles - yet.

another reason to love easter is baby chicks. my mom used to get them in her easter basket. this has never happened to me. when i get older and have some money i'd like to have chickens and a goat maybe. you know what always cheers me up? saying PEEP PEEP out loud. go ahead, try it.

here is what's on my wall: it makes me happy
most people have photographs of friends or family. that's kind of boring. mhm.

this was a birthday present - and an awesome one at that - it's a linocut of a man and his bike in Amsterdam. 

i think bugs are pretty cool. i dont know though. if i saw these guys walking around my room i might feel differently. but i wouldnt kill them. no no no.

this is a photograph by my friend ellie (blog link soon!). it's a squirrel amongst nutcrackers. i was really impressed.

this is a shadowbox i made with some of my vintage buttons. my favorite one is the smoking one. resting on it is a postcard of souther salazar. he's amazing.

i'm sorry that i take such shitty photographs. I should learn how to do that...

on another note, id like to say that this weekend has been a pretty good one. i love listening to people talk about what they love. kate, thanks for talking to me about your epiphanies. they're beautiful. chandler, i loved hearing about reed. im so excited for you and jealous! james, hearing you talk about SAS is awesome.

does anyone else feel like going to class is making them dumber? i mean so far i've had only one teacher talk about the subject with passion. and it was an awesome class because of that. genetics and anatomy with pennybacker was awesome last year because he was excited about it.

i know that college is making me less creative.

it's important to have stickers of yourself. i put them on my letters so my pals dont forget what i look like. 
this is a letter to my friend kimbles. i drew pictures on the border of my banana pipe, my moccasins (and a cigarette heading towards them), and pb and j. 

this is the cover of the letter. more dwell cut-outs. 

i am very hungry, there's nothing to eat here. nothing looks good to me anymore. i just want seaweed salad from tokyo rose. mmm. 
i made these little envelopes from dwell magazine and glued them onto cards. i was inspired by martha stewart. 

they're for 2 friends' birthdays, who hopefully never read this. i mean does anyone?
i made this stocking for a buddy for xmas. he loves 80s/90s volkswagens. this is a mk 2 gti. i was happy with how it turned out. you may recall the one i made for my friend charlie last year. charlie still has it hanging up in his room. i thought that was sweet. 

i like nice people.

here is what my day consisted of:
  1. waking up at 11
  2. reading blogs
  3. eating banana cake with lemon glaze frosting that my bunny and i made together
  4. talking to my bunny on the phone about the redeeming qualities of cycling caps (it may have been an argument) and the merits of backing out or pulling through a rotunda parking spot
  5. planning dinner with my dad
  6. playing street fighter alpha 2
winter break is lovely, but i think i can stand for it to be over. i need more direction.
