2o13 .. one little word ..

.. one little word .. hmm .. it is really hard for me to choose only one OLW word for 2o13 .. 
there are a bunch of „popular“ ones out there .. and for me .. hmm ..
I think in 2o13 it should be all about being HAPPY .. which includes automatically SMILE,  SHINE  and SPARKLE 🙂
so .. one little word with three little subwords 🙂
Do More of What Makes You Happy 



first layout in ages ..

.. yesterday, while hoping from one blog to another it hit me ..– +geez, haven’t made a layout in quite a while+ .. that’s when I grabbed one of my favorite photos from my Mexico trip and decided to work with it 🙂

I used the cool sketch provided by My Mind’s Eye for their current challenge and the inspirational photo from PaperSmoochesSparks challenge made me finish my layout 🙂 every PP is by MME (I love the paper with the clouds and stars – it’s from the Lime Twist – Fly a Kite collection) and the cute little stars are free PaperSmooches digital stamps 🙂

As you can see I went crazy with distressing the edges and my sewing machine 😀 aahhh how I loved creating this page 🙂 I really like how it looks even though it’s rather monochromatic 🙂

Challenges:
My Mind’s Eye – Sketch
PaperSmoochesSparks – Picture Perfect
CardsGalore – Anything Goes
TheStudioChallenges – Layers

3 t’s :) and 25

Two Tiny Tissueboxes 🙂
the boxes are so handy and really easy to make – I found a tutorial here 🙂 .. perfect for tissues or other stuff 😀 and the best thing is – I’m using up all my old paper .. well, not ALL of it but I try not to use my new stuff haha .. let’s see how that works out 😛 here is used some Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket PP ..  it’s really hard to decorate the boxes – it should look cute but not overloaded because it might come off when it’s bouncing around in a woman’s purse .. oh well, we’ll see if those little rhine stones and buttons will stick to it 🙂

btw .. it’s my 25th birthday today .. yep, that’s right .. 25 years ago my Mom squeezed me out of her uterus .. oh well .. 😀 I’m old now .. haha .. 
here’s a glimpse of my yummi birthday breakfast and the cute little bouquet of flowers she got me 🙂 and a picture of me and my Mom I love her :)))) I’m so thankful to have her in my life – she’s my hero +felling blessed and pretty sentimental right now+ LOL ♥ ♥ ♥ 

Halloween

I’m owl obsessed – we all know that – so that’s what I wore on the 31st 🙂 aaaallll owly ♥ ♥ ♥

 and I went out for dinner on Sunday looking like this .. Wicked Witch? – yeah, kind of haha .. but just my regular style 😉

never .. never ever ..

what I’ve learned this summer? – easy: never ever settle for anything less than everything .. it’s definitely not worth it .. 



being happy is so darn important .. I always thought that happiness is overrated but it’s not .. I’d say it’s underrated because it is so crucial in life .. oh well .. I’m sentimental .. BUT I’m happy 🙂 I really am  I have a bunch of amazing friends and a great family – which means a lot of support .. I love going to school and I really like my job .. I’m glad I have a wonderful hobby that I can share with my friends and that is all that counts besides .. what’s more important in life than being surrounded by your loved ones?

  ❤ I feel so blessed right now

I love San Francisco 🙂
even though it is SOOOOO windy and cold – it is fantastic 🙂 I’m a little bit sick though, so I’m kinda weak and can’t eat what I would love to eat but I try to enjoy myself as much as possible 🙂
Today I went on a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge .. it was really cold and almost stormy, but I’m so glad that there was no fog and that I was able to see the bridge 🙂 later on and walked around some stores .. I didn’t buy anything though .. oh well .. that’s a lie .. I bought PJ pants – navy blue with strawberries 😀
