Today is apparently National Pie Day! Of course it’s a silly holiday but I’m always ready to celebrate, because we all need a bit more FUN in life!
Pie Day calls for a special pie themed outfit for What I’m Wearing Wednesday, of course! Unfortunately I don’t have a pie dress (YET!), or an actual pie (that’s crusty!), but I have the next best thing: a homemade PIE PIN!
It’s a delicious piece of felt cherry pie! Don’t you just want to dig right in?!
I’m usually a pretty simple outfit wearer: just a dress, tights, and cardigan. So I really love a couple of thoughtful accessories – as tiny little details really bring your whole outfit together and allow you to be ANYTHING! So I threw on my pin and my day was a slice! 😀
Here are some pics of what I was up to this week! Probably easier to share my craft-ventures in a sum up post rather than a ton of posts.
This was a good but very busy week… and it was FLIPPIN COLD here! COLDER THAN MINUS 40 celsius this morning with windchill (for the American folks conveniently that’s also -40 Fahrenheit!) Now I’m from Winnipeg, Canada, which has at times been colder than Mars, but that’s still not something you ever get used to! So I’ve been stuck inside most of the week (darn ;)).
Luckily that left lots of time for cleaning…
And did lots of creating:
Got a delivery of new yarn so I got seriously back into knitting as well this week!
Also did some decorating around my little pink house! Valentine’s decorating for most is my year round decor so I’m on cloud 9 stocking up on all sorts of goodies!!
That was a pretty busy week! Could’ve used an extra day in there for sure. Time to do it all again! 😀
What better thing than to remember and share what makes you the HAPPIEST! Then you can look back on it on the days that feel the gloomiest and look back at what makes life truly great. 😀 So each and every Thursday I’m going to share a few of my LOVES!
So the first instance of things I love should probably be something I really love…. HEARTS!!! <3
I was talking with people at work who were complaining a bit about how there is Valentines stuff out in stores already (I saw stuff on Boxing Day already haha)! But I LOVE IT! Even though I’m perpetually happily single, hearts fill me with warmth and happiness. Second to my Hello Kitty collection is my collection of HEART things so I look forward to Valentines season to increase my love of love!
I’ve been thinking of doing some weekly themed posts for some variety and to do something consistent here on the blog!! So welcome to the very first What I’m Wearing Wednesday!! I’m super ready to share some of the silly fun things I put on myself!
Like everybody, I’ve been eating SO MANY SWEETS lately… and have been enjoying every single one. But my tights are a little snug and my teeth probably won’t agree (rather terrified for the dentist next week – EEK!) so maybe it’s time to cut back a teeny tiny bit….
So instead I’ve exchanged my plates of cookies with dresses full of TREATS! This was my yummy outfit for work today where I dreamed of sugar plums perhaps a bit too much…:
Cardigan: Calvin Klein
Donut Scarf: Dollar Tree has them for Valentine’s Day 🙂
I do wish I could have got a full body shot without looking like a total dork (haha!), but I’m also wearing black Mary Janes, hot pink tights, and a donut necklace. I was on a sugar high all day today, so I’ll sleep well tonight!
(Can’t wait until the sun stays up a little bit longer so I can get a decent picture! I pretty much live in a cave without a lot of lighting so I need sunlight or I get fuzzy blur!)
This was a looong week! Maybe because it was the first full week back at work, or just the seemingly endless winterness, or just a case of the grumpies for some unknown reason, but it REALLY got to me!
My craft a day-ness suffered a bit because of it. There were a couple of days that I wasn’t able to do anything but knit a few stitches or glue a couple of pompoms and then did a proper hibernation and climbed into my cave at like 7 pm! Was just super sleepy!
But as soon as I escaped from work on Friday, I cranked up the heat in my house and threw on my most flowery dress and dreamed of green, flowers, and sunshine and I was BACK! This weekends’ accomplishments: bedazzled some photo frames, am relatively confident in doing a running stitch in sewing, made a LOT of new felt friends, organized my craft room (it was chaos and I kept losing Sugar in the mess!), polished off most of the remaining Christmas cookies (it had to be done :D), and walked a TON (to burn off the cookies and unwind)!
I was craving strawberries during my spring daydreams, so I made these guys out of felt!
Just have to keep remembering, sunnier days to come! 🙂 xoxo
