two for tea and tea for two.

when I first started crocheting I thought amigurumi stuff was pointless and kinda a waste of time. 
It does take time but I want to crochet everything! 
How cute are these tea cups that I originally saw here, on one sheepish girls blog.  
I loved it right away and needed to make my own so I found a pattern here and I was surprised how EASY it is to make these cute little tea cups. I havent mastered the latte one but I will keep trying till its perfect and I plan on leaving them at my favorite little coffee shop, cute tea cup yarn bomb type thing.

gloomy day, flower nails.

I was up super late last night so when my alarm went off for school this morning I was not a happy camper, but as soon as I was done I raced home, jumped in bed and spend the whole day in there watching netflix and painting my nailzzz

well I found this awesome nail polish blog this morning!
and she had a DIY tutorial on flower nails so i gave it a shot.

 I normally dont like my flower nails cause  i think they look like blobs. but I really like these flowers, they look pretty!

I want a puppy so bad!

this one makes my heart tingle.

-m4w - 29

I saw you for maybe a second or two.
I've read missed-connections before and wondered why people just didn't say something then and there. Now I understand... perhaps it's because the moment is extraordinary; containing a fullness of its own... and the thought that this person across from me is not a part of my everyday life, and at any second will disappear, didn't even occur to me... it seemed that we were in whatever it was together, and that sort of connection rarely, if ever, happens between strangers, so my mind was a little slow on registering that there would be no "some other time" if neither of us asked for the others phone or email.

Now, hours later, the ripples created by those few tender seconds still gently rock something within me...
and I become a missed-connections poster.

Would you be interested in having tea or going on a ride?

missed connections

I love reading missed connections,  I want a boy to write a missed connections about me. 

heart on my sleeves

In reply to MY FIRST COMMENT EVER!!!!!!
I havent mastered how to take the pictures but I have done a sweater with heart elbow patches, idea found 
here.  for my sweater I just used felt (29 cents at michaels) I bought a few sheets just incase I messed up.
I put the sweater on bent my elbow and put a piece of tape where the point of the heart would go then sewed it on, it was super easy!

I wear my heart on...

I saw these on pineneedle-collective diy heart tights late last night I was tempted to go out and buy tights at 1 am to make these. today was a day of DIY crafts. 
bought 2 pairs of nude sheer and 2 pairs of black sheer, set up my paint and went to painting these tights while they were on. 
it was hard and messy but so worth it! 

I made these nude tights covered in all sizes of hearts and I LOVE THEM.

but I think the knee patch hearts are my new favorite pair.
