Here's a post for you


wow, another hiatus?? o can't believe that your blog is still so populat with all the infrequent posting and large beaks. you can't be that busy to not make a 1 line post saying you'll be on hiatus. jesus.

Okay. I understand that I'm not a very frequent blogger. I get that. As much as I love blogging, as much as I love receiving your supportive comments (minus this one), as much as I love hearing that I've inspired someone, there's something called lack of time. And I realize that there are bloggers out there who are busy (busier than I am, I recognize) and manage to post daily. More than daily, even. But, these are people who give more into their blogs. I wish I had that sort of dedication, but I never (even when starting) expressed any sort of goal to have a huge blog, or to update it all the time. The only commitment I made for this blog to myself was that if I had time, and if I had that motivation, I would post. Maybe not regularly, but I do try, so let's not make assumptions.

I don't beg for comments, so I'm sorry that you think that my blog has undeserved popularity. I comment on other blogs when I have time. I ask for popularity only if I feel I deserve it. Prior to my last post, I didn't comment on as many blogs as I could have, or should have, because I knew that I would receive comments and more hits on my blog, which I knew I wouldn't deserve because I post so infrequently.

So, I don't post all the time because of lack of time, and because it's not a priority to me as it is to others. I still dress up. I still like to experiment. I still sew. and I DEFINITELY still view my favourite blogs (please see side panel).

I'm sorry to disappoint, and I'm sorry to be on "another hiatus" but, quite frankly, it would be a little more civil of you, anonymous commentor, to at least commend me for the posts I have done, for the benefit of readers like you, and not to badger me. Can I infer that you are the same person who left equally irratating comments on my last blog?

I'm glad for the support, and I'm glad to know that there are those who enjoy my blog, but we're all people. We all feel like crap sometimes. I'm sorry if my absense has made you feel less than pleased, but your comment wasn't exactly the highlight of my day.

I hope I'll be able to post more in the future (I would like to post during the summer especially), but please don't wait on me. When I have the time, I'll definitely comment on all the blogs of those who have supported my own for so long.

Thanks a bunch, and I hope you can understand where all this is coming from!

(Sorry to the anonymous commentor for sounding spiteful, but I just felt like I owed an explanation that ended up sounding a bit rude....Sorry also for exceeding one line)

Thank you for those who continue with your blogs, I enjoy so many of them immensely!

Yours truly.




he's the attractive kind of ugly

Up! up! my Friend, and quit your books;
Or surely you'll grow double:
Up! up! my Friend, and clear your looks;
Why all this toil and trouble?

The sun above the mountain's head,
A freshening lustre mellow
Through all the long green fields has spread,
His first sweet evening yellow.

Books! 'tis a dull and endless strife:
Come, hear the woodland linnet,
How sweet his music! on my life,
There's more of wisdom in it.

And hark! how blithe the throstle sings!
He, too, is no mean preacher:
Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.

She has a world of ready wealth,
Our minds and hearts to bless--
Spontaneous wisdom breathed by health,
Truth breathed by cheerfulness.

One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the sages can.

Sweet is the lore which Nature brings;
Our meddling intellect
Mis-shapes the beauteous forms of things:--
We murder to dissect.

Enough of Science and of Art;
Close up those barren leaves;
Come forth, and bring with you a heart
That watches and receives.
The Tables Turned - William Wordsworth.
Analyzing poetry is so calming...
On an off-topic, You know those people who are attractive in that really ugly way? Confuses me too.

All The Way Down....

My Favourite Things...

1) Pokemon pajamas. No explanation necessary.

2) Pride and Prejudice OST. and my iPoodle.

3) Shoes from my mother's youth. The day when these become unwearable, I will hide under a rock and never come out.

4) My jacket. Oh my sweet, spring jacket. How I was longing to wear you all throughout the dreadful winter months! This is now my fallback outfit. So comfy, so beautiful.

5) Being stupid with my sister.


I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud...

5 Things that make me happier than Mondays...

1) FRIENDS. (the people....and the show)
2) Poetry. William Wordsworth = OMG!%^&#$
3)Reading. In general. I haven't read a good book in a while, and I feel so lost.
4) When people who don't normally talk, talk. It's the most exciting thing. It makes me shit my pants.
5) Classical Music.
Scratch that - everything makes me happier than Mondays.
PS (2 things)
1) I am going to start comiling a links list, please let me know if you would like to swap links! I haven't done so yet out of sheer laziness. (But I'm really trying to be a decent blogger!)
2) There is a school dance coming up. Yes, that does mean a bunch of sweaty teenagers in Hollister dancing to crappy music, BUT, it is also an opportunity to look like me in a crowd of depression. SO, look forward to some good sewing in the next couple of posts. I am excitedddddddd.
I have a great Easter post planned, THAT IS IF IT IS NOT SNOWING BY THIS WEEKEND (YES, SNOW IN APRIL), so stay tuned :)
If not before then though, have an AMAZING EASTER! (and recognize its importance!)


Big Cheeks, No Smile

Skirt: self made, Shoes: Payless, Jacket: Korea, Black shirt, Black tights, Assorted bracelets.

Things to learn from the past 10 days:

1) Adam Lambert touched himself too much last Tuesday.
2) Knowing had one of the worst endings I've ever seen. Ever. Creepy whisper people were scary.
3) One boy actually called dress-down days at school "Elisa (last name) day" Erm...?
4) Weardrobe accounts are laughably easy to make. I made one for the sake of entering the polka-dot contest - opportune timing. Fingers crossed?
5) Big skirts make for big conversation at school.
from the last post, I wanted to pass for 13 so I could get a cheaper ticket! Just to clear things up...I'm 14, by the way. :)
I had lots and lots of fun making this skirt! It just keeps getting easier, and so much more fun each time. I broke 3 needles in the process on the machine because it was so thick. Whoops.
Have a good week!
I get some questions in comments, and I'm not entirely sure where or when to answer them, so if you'd like some questions answered in a Q&A post, please post some!



Skirt: handmade, Shoes: Aldo, Lace cardigan: hand-me-down, Necklace: H&M


When trying to pass for a 13 year old at a movie theatre,

a) don't wear heels

b) don't wear lace

c) when asked for ID don't look at him like you're crazy

d) when asked for your birthday, do NOT say 1993

e) just don't try to pass for a 13 year old at a movie theatre.

Also, I need better jewelrey. I've decided that I can make clothes, and need only spend money on accessories...and apparently adult movie tickets.
