today i turned 25....i don't feel any older. i feel alone. i spent the whole day by myself and i didn't even really care. tons of birthday wishes flooded in yet i didn't see one person to spend any time with. the 25th year of my life will be a change for me...i will make it happen. i want to explore, design, and accomplish something incredible. 5 yrs and counting till italy. i marked this day as a starting point. now to just achieve this goal and i will feel as if i'm doing good in my life. happy birthday to me.

Last night miss Elsie from RVA had a huge update and i'm loving all the new things she has. Some of my favorites that i'm loving are....

Vanessa modeling this lovely vintage feather hairpiece.

Woodland raccoon creatures

Plushie soft Brooches

Searching for a perfect planner which i can't seem to find it is. The best kit for my scheduled days.
i love it so so much. can't wait to purchase this little baby.

Thanks Elsie for the great products.....

Happy Happy Happy Mail

Upon coming home from work today i checked the mail and what do i find...HAPPY MAIL! Come to my surprise there were two packages in my mailbox. One from the lovely Janel which included the mix cd she made. i won the give-away...totally shocked and so excited. i needed something to lift me up while i have been dealing with my diabetes and in the hospital. i love listening to makes me feel so comfortable. Second was my 3rd installment of Happy Mail from Tara. She sends the coolest things, things that i adore. i thank jamie for having such an inspiring blog friendly idea. i enjoy have this connection.

Me and Mr. Darcy

afghan crazy!, originally uploaded by makingchickensalad.

this makes me want to cozy up and watch Mr. Darcy and his lovely in love with afghans!


this is what i feel when i'm around you


i have finally entered the computer world..i probably am the last person in the free world to just now get a computer. i saved up my income tax money and decided on a laptop. i'm for the most part way excited to be able to reach out to all my blogger friends. i still don't have internet hooked up at the house so for now i'm currently using the campus library and the laundry mat. why not, it's free wifi. if i don't have to pay then i will use it to my advantage. i'm hoping to start blogging on a daily basis but who knows. thanks to all my blog friends who have encouraged me to find the daily inspiration.
