Confessions: Katy Perry & The Craft Bug

Jacob and I watched the Katy Perry movie last night.

Yup, it’s true.

And I actually enjoyed it. Anyone else out there who wants to own up to that with me?

I just thought it was so interesting to see her story–I’m a sucker for stories, people. And it was interesting, to say the least. I honestly appreciate her more now because I understand more of what she stands for, and I like it! She’s all about being you and sending the message to everyone that it’s great to be yourself, no matter how “weird” you seem. I think that’s a great message to send kids. Granted, I don’t really love her Peacock song (which I hadn’t ever heard before watching the movie)…. but I still like her and was inspired by her drive to make her dreams come true.

And for the record, I don’t think Jacob enjoyed it quite as much as I did :), but he sat through the whole movie with me… what a great husband!

On a completely unrelated note, Fall Break starts next Wednesday after class!!! Needless to say, I have several projects lined up for that free time and I’m getting SO EXCITED to start them. I’ve got plans for 3 currently bare walls in our apartment, and I’m ready to get cracking! I’ve been so excited that I started on one yesterday because I just couldn’t help myself. This place is really starting to feel like our little home, cozy and welcoming. Yay!

Just for fun, here’s a little arrangement I made a few days ago because, again, I just couldn’t hold off my craftiness until fall break…

 

These flowers were leftover from the other 3 arrangements I made for our apartment, so I just threw them together in this jar from our wedding so they wouldn’t be in a pile on the floor. It’s incredible how much more homey and warm flowers can make a room.

Now I’m off to Michael’s so I can use my 50% off coupon before it expires!
