tomorrow is my friend nat's birthday, and i've been so slack; i've been meaning to make her a pair of earrings for the last 2 months, and i still haven't. guess who's making jewellery tonight? also a card, and i have loads of ideas, but why do i always leave these things til the last minute? i had plenty of time to make things last weekend, but did i? of course not. i always see pretty embellishments for birthday cards and i tell myself not to buy them until i have a specific person in mind (or else i just end up buying too much stuff that goes unused & forgotten for years); but i knew nat's birthday was coming up this month. slack, slack, slack. i have to get up early tomorrow morning to make it to work before she gets here, so i can decorate her desk - balloons, confetti, streamers. i can't wait because it'll be fun to make it all festive looking; i just hope i can pull myself out of bed early enough. today i slept in until 7:15. i had my alarm set for an hour before then.
eek. busy night tonight then. i brought the crystals for the earrings weeks ago too, but it still didn't mean i did anything with them. i hope i can make something nice, i haven't made earrings for a couple of months now. i haven't been very crafty at all lately. but i've been writing a lot, so i think that's okay. as long as i'm doing something creative (and/or thought-provoking).
a penpal of mine wrote to me and said that i "can really weave magic with [your] words". i think that's about the nicest thing that has ever been said. it nearly made my cry. i wish i could believe it sometimes, but i'm trying.
