i made rainbow cupcakes!!

so we have a staff potluck tomorrow and naturally i signed up to bring dessert. duh. hey fatty. [;

my new coworkers are a pretty creative bunch so i really wanted to do something creative, but not with too much detail and work and shopping, yadda yadda. so i decided to try these lovelies. it wasn't hard. AT ALL. it is a little time consuming.. but what isn't?

i looked at this page for details, but i pretty much had the concept without it. i was concerned more with how others went about layering the batter.

again, i apologize for the pictures but i did my best. that's what counts, right?

i had a lot of fun. [: try them sometime.


ps: i also entered a giveaway today from a CUTE blog.

looking forward to tomorrow.

tomorrow is the first day of my training. i'm super stoked.
i will be working for the city of hillsboro as an after school program instructor.
it is my career goal to be an art teacher, so i feel lucky to have an opportunity to at least take step in that direction.
hopefully this will be as rewarding as i hope.

the above picture is little alivia and i taking a breather in the middle of a tickle fit. [:

cute girls and moustaches.

three sexy spaniards i have the pleasure of knowing.

she was once a pup.

she's the cutest ever. and can't hold still.

she likes to sit like a human with her best pal, adam.

she is a leg-licker.
shins beware.

filler stuff.

so ... today was a brainstorming day. i started it off with cereal, which made me miss school a little. [:

miss elysecanfield sent me the blog http://fuckyouverymuch.dk/
...(pleased be warned that this site has adult content, and it is never my intention to offend anyone,
different strokes for different folks
which inspired me to start thinking of possible painting ideas.

i'm in between jobs right now (obviously) and absolutely loving the down time. adam went to seattle today to pick up a car for me. i'm now the payer-offer of an '01 civic coupe. great gas mileage, so nothing to complain about. [:

today i thought about how wonderful my man is for everything he does for me
and how he makes me feel when i'm with him
and how i hope we look like this at the age of ancient. [;

(i don't know where i got the image, so if you know the source, let me know.)

boredom & blogs blogs blogs.

since i have nothing of value to talk about, and there is no news on the condo, and i don't have a camera to take pictures of my recent work with, i guess i will just share a little blog love with whoever reads this. [:

ps: DON'T GET HOME LOANS THROUGH WELLS FARGO. seriously. just take my word for it.

ok, so here are some blogs that i have stumbled upon, literally, that i enjoyed.

this lady is just fun to follow, & also has an adorable etsy shop. i followed her dress tutorial and it was easy and adorable. (and affordable! bonus city.)

little miss elyse canfield. she is the loudest, skinniest, obesesser-over-skinny-cute-girls and all-things-photography&apple. and says thing like "i luh you". all reasons why love her face. she's currently in seoul, check her out.

this is a girl..? woman..? gal.. i went to high school with. we never talked much, but her blog is a wonderful photo journal of her life, basically.

la(zy)bor day.

i'm sitting on the couch watching cake shows and surfin' the interweb.

i'm hoping to get a camera soon so i can start being more regular with this bloggin' thing. tutorials, crafts, yummy foods, yadda yadda.. woo hoo. i'm also starting an etsy page. i'm pretty excited.

first, though, the man and i gotta move into our condo. it's been a gazillion days, and we were supposed to close on the place august 30th. we still have a couple more weeks. i want to decorate so bad. and i need a legit studio. right now i'm taking over one of my future father in law's drafting tables. at least i have a spot to go, though.

speaking of that, i think im going to go bust out some art. [:
