the party saturday was pretty ridiculous, but we had a lot of fun, despite the fact that the bar was seemingly stocked by a 13 year old (3 different flavored vodkas, tequila, a handle of watered down rum and 1 bottle of red wine, with either grape "drink" or mountain dew, haha) but we took a ton of pictures, avoided fights, made new friends and enjoyed a generally awesome debaucherous night in a crazy part of philly. we stayed over saturday night and i finally got more than 5 hours sleep in a night. then, after the obligatory stop for smart water & a buttered roll at the halfyway point quik-chek on the way home, i pretty much spent sunday as a total couch potato recovering and catching up with some internet.
then i took a little break for some correspondence (the real mail kind i.e. my fave) and rediscovered this quote i had fallen in love with on a card that i was sending out; "friend you are a divine mingle mangle of guts and stardust" and i wanted to keep it hanging around for me too, and not just in my random notes book, like so many other quotes, so i made a little hanging with a shaped page i had leftover from a prima clear acrylic album. it was so fun to make that i ressurected another quote from the random notes book; "if you're quiet, you're not living. you've got to be noisy, colorful and lively." and made a little hanging for that one too (not pictured).
last, i started adding journaling and pictures to my "summer fun '08" acrylic album. i taught a couple of sessions last week and i figured it would be easier for people to use it as a sample without pictures. i do love how it's looking with the squares of square pictures and woodgrain tags on each page. now that i've started using the woodgrain tape, i can't stop. i'm a little scared to open the back of the label maker and see how little is probably left! there are still two blank spots in the book, so it looks like i'm going to have to have two more adventures before september! (p.s. to look at all the pages in the mini album, just move your mouse over the picture and arrows will pop up!)
