Random Musings

I just want to say thank you for all your beautiful comments! They really mean so much to me. You're all amazing! I'm feeling a lot better, though still sad. I feel so much for my auntie and my cousins, losing husband and father. But I'm praying for them and us continually.

I thought that I would share a random list of happiness. Things I'm doing, looking forward to and love.

I'm looking forward to the new Narnia movie, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader! Especially because so much of it was filmed here in Australia. Plus as I've mentioned before I love Narnia and it's one of my favourite book series ever!

Via Amazon

I cannot wait for Mockingjay. It's the last book in The Hunger Games trilogy. As I've mentioned before I love this series! It's definitely one of my absolute favourites. Plus there is news of a movie! There have been some rumblings saying that this series is about to explode but I've been a fan way before any of that :) I wrote about my obsession with this book back here.

I can't wait to get this skirt from this lovely lady. I'm a huge fan of bows, in clothes, hair, jewellery.

I like the fairy tale journal I'm working on for Swap-bot. This is a sneak peak at the journal. It's getting so fat already.

My creative mess. This is so much neater than it usually is. It's a mixture of letters, journals and little earrings I'm making for Etsy and this event. As well as some mini note cards and other items that aren't in the photo.

Other things I love and make me happy...

* Fairy tales
* Pod casts (for Narnia and The Hunger Games)
* Watching soccer each night
* Cosy blankets and socks
* Buying things on Etsy
* Spending time with my family and laughing at anything
* Real Living magazine
* Travel books that give me a serious case of wanderlust

I guess that's it for now. It's a post all over the place. I don't even want to go into the last Australia soccer game. Too frustrating. Have a wonderful week!

Sometimes, you just feel so relieved by doing a very ramdom post. It's like releasing all the trapped energy of some sort.

I just happened to stumble onto your blog and enjoy reading it.

Beautiful your act to that charity time to women and to help in Manila. Will your earrings be sold there?

Portugal is playing right know with North Korea, I hope we can win!

Only to look to that photo of the journal I feel inspiring, I can't picture how many wonder are inside it, and the table full of materials.. I love it, I love that perfect mess!

Wow, I love that skirt! I'm always a little hesitant to buy clothes online, let us know how it goes!

Also, where did you buy your journal for the swap from? It looks really nice.

Wishing you and your family every strength :)
