Today was one of those days that I am just reallllllyyyy missing spring. I asked my cute lil’ sis if i could borrow her extra cute scarf, and snap some pictures of me at the end of the day. So here we are now, with some semi- blurry pictures in the freezing cold, near an old wood pile.  Lovely. Anyways, one may ask, ” Ziggy, why did you wear cuffed up jeans, and a spring scarf during winter? Are you crazy?” The answer is no, i just have a theory! (Don’t laugh… Zola did when I told her this and I will never forgive her, well maybe i will…) I am going to attempt to confuse mother nature, I will start wearing spring-ish clothing and Mother Nature will be like, “Wait, why is that cute girl wearing spring clothes? It is still winter!” She will then think she forgot to change seasons because she was to busy watching me suffer in the cold.  She will change the seasons and I will be the happiest person ever!

I hope you join me in my plot against mother nature, or whoever controls the seasons! What happens to be your favorite season? I’m sure you can tell that mine is spring!

Happy Wednesday!!!

Just another day….

So I have made it my mission to take full advantage of the excessive amount of unworn clothing in my closet.  With that said, I did something I don’t normally do * drum roll please* I wore a shirt that is longer then ‘normal’.  A shirt that could actually be considered a tunic… Pretty fancy huh?  Normally I don’t wear long shirts because I am not exactly sure how I like them… But, I did it and everyone in school loved it!  It always feels really special to receive and give compliments.  Now remember as you take a look at this outfit I threw together, I am certainly not a fashion-y person but I do try to get creative every now and then 🙂

Happy Monday!

30 Day Challange

Image

My Cousin took this picture while on his way to work one morning. One word describes it- COLD.

So I have took it upon myself to postpone the thirty day challenge for the week, and restart next Monday, it has been quite chilly here in my small town.  It is silly that I can not just suck it up and run in the cold, but four degrees is wayyyyyyy to cold.  Stay Warm wherever you are out there! 🙂

  • Tuesday I have a vocabulary test.
  • Wednesday I have an appositives test in English-my least favorite subject.
  • Friday I have a math test on inverse trigonometric functions. (what are those??? :/)
  • May 10th I have my AP English, and my AP Statistics exams… on the day of prom….
  • Thursday 4 dialectical journals are due on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

I am drowning in tests.  Oh golly…. Hopefully nobody pulls a pop quiz on me…

Luckily Zola and I are planning a kick butt surprise, and this cold streak is almost over! Yippee!

The best of luck to you on all of your tests 🙂

Like any other group of teenage friends, Zola and I get together to have sleepovers every now and then. Normally another friend joins us but she was M.I.A. this time. *cough Mishell cough* Anyways this past sleepover consisted of me staying up wayyyyyyy to late, Zola staying up even later (she is a night owl) and lots of laughing while brainstorming things to do and talk about on this good ol’blog. Any suggestions? And recipes you would like us to try out? Or projects? Or even challenges? Feel free to let us know- (we won’t bite ;))

Buncha pennies on a keychain

StamP Y0ur Luck

LUckY PennieS

Handle With (arePennY KeYChain

Up Up Must Have Been Lucky

We all stumble on that penny when walking through a store, or down a street. What if all those pennies are really lucky? This is part 1 of my penny project series. Today I paid my sister one quarter for her 24 pennies (i was ripped off…) and i took it upon myself to start the penny project.

I have a few penny projects that I will be completing over the next few weeks and here the first one!

You will need:

A metal letter stamp kit, like this one

Pennies, and lots of them

Drill with a 5/64 bit

Scrap wood (to place under the pennies as you drill, you don’t want any holes in your table)

Hammer

Crafting Pliers (and split ring pliers)

6mm and 9mm split rings

1 Key chain

Step 1: Lay all of your pennies face up and pound the letters LUCKY into them. It took me a few practice pennies to figure our how i wanted the letters to be placed. I started the ‘L’ underneath the ‘liberty’ and swooped the letters down, following the shape of the penny which led me to finish on the date. I found it is easiest to do on concrete.

Step 2: Place the pennies on a piece of scrap wood, and drill one hole into the top of the penny, i tried to get as close to the edge as possible. Be careful because the metal scraps that come out of the penny may look like innocent silver spirals, but are actually weapons in disguise, waiting to cut you… ;(

Step 3: Loop a 6mm split ring into the holes of all of your pennies (I used 12 pennies for my key chain)

Step 4: Attach three of your pennies (the ones from step 3) onto a 9mm split ring. (you should have a total of 4 larger split rings with three pennies attached if you did it like me.)

Step 5: Attach the split rings from step four together. I placed empty split rings in between as spacers so it was not as bulky.

Step 6: Attach to a key chain 🙂

I hope those directions made sense, it takes time and patience to make this keychain, so choose a rainy day. 🙂

Stay tuned for more penny projects and the best of luck to you!

Friday Morning

Love waking up to the bright sun, I may be temporarily blinded, but I can't complain.

Found an rather unhealthy breakfast waiting for me when i finally made my way to the kitchen.
