i digress


1. time for change again
Let's face it. I can't really make up my mind about anything blog design. The no-title posts really appealed to me for a while, but lately its just been bugging me. So, I'm letting my creative juices flow with the titles. I'm hoping to alternate three or four post titles each time I blog. This one is where I digress, share my thoughts, and current events. Oh, and the fonts may change from time to time. {Please let me know if something doesn't show up, as I've been having a bit of trouble with certain font types.}

2. happy birthday to paper bird
My awesome friend turned eighteen today! Holy cow, you're officially an adult. You can vote now, get a tattoo, buy fireworks, and all that other fun stuff. But in all seriousness, you're one of the most thoughtful and kindest persons I know. Happy Birthday PB, love you girl.

3. never too old for fairies 
Okay. I realize I'm seventeen, but I've always loved this book. It's called Fairyopolis, a flower fairy journal. It's written like an old scrapbook, with lift the flaps, old photographs, & other tiny treasures on the pages. I love how vintage and unique it looks.


4. time to vote
If you haven't already, head on over to i heart faces, and click on my photo #171 to vote for me. I'd really appreciate it, and if you're under 18 - no worries, it's totally legal. c:

5. semester two begins.
School started this Monday. Eh, I'm having mixed feelings about it. I'm really excited to see all of my tutorial friends again next week. I loath really don't care for Spanish. Everyone says its the easiest language to learn. I think not. On a lighter note, I started Health this semester. So far it's been easy breezy, because it seems like doing a recap of Anatomy, which I started in the fall. And reading, well, it's always been my favorite. I got the complete collection of Edgar Allan Poe for Christmas, and am loving it. 

6. the origin of colds
"It's cold outside. That's why we get colds." Little S stated this as he wiped his nose for the hundredth time today. Yes, its just that time of year. A good excuse to drink lots of peppermint tea.



  1. Thanks for the shout-out M! You are too sweet, I didn't think about the fireworks thing:) I love that fairy book too, they have one for the Spiderwick Chronicles too, which is cool. Can't wait to see you Friday!


  2. Hi M! I just found your blog! I absolutely love it! Your photography is amazing, and I really like your header.
    Have a great night!

  3. Fairyopolis sounds and looks just magical!

    I'm so bad at titles and I just mainly write what immediately comes to mind. They either turn out boring or corny... :(

  4. First, Happy Birthday to your friend! I'd love to read Fairyopolis...i adore books that make me feel nostalgia for my childhood, especially pop-up and flap-up books :) And peppermint tea makes everything better! Hope your Little S's nose feels better soon :)

  5. Hi again M! I noticed that you followed me on my blog! Thanks SO much! I have been having tons of trouble with my url so I had to start over..:(
    Please, if you wouldn't mind, re-follow me on this url: http://daniellespaperheart.blogspot.com/

  6. poor little S. this may be self explaintory, but i still like fairies. okay, spainish isn't easy but french is harder:). trust me. you like poe but the book thief is too dark??? JK. I love me some poe. the raven of course, it's too famous not to like. but annabel lee is my most favorite poem of all time.

  7. The fairy book is gorgeous. My best friend Jen just started a cupcake business called Fairy Cakes : ) Isn't that the cutest. Wishing you all the best in 2011,
