My boyfriend proposed to me on Friday the 23rd! We went for a walk in a park and held hands as we crossed a bridge. Once we reached the other side, he got down on 1 knee and pulled out a heart-shaped box with the ring inside! *aaahh!* :D I cannot believe it! I love him so much and we now have a whole life ahead of us. One that will be full of adventures! Just a quick post to tell you alllll! :) Here is a pic of the ring, and once I have some good ones of us, I will put them up lol. :D

I have been pretty busy lately! Work has actually been giving me hours and when I am not working, I am researching and sleeping. I have a LOT of ppl to catch up with, and a lot of creating, yet to do. :) The Orange County Fair is coming up and I am going to have 4 entries this year. Quite different from my 12+ entries last year. I was creating just to enter! haha. Obsessions! This year, I will only be making 2 of my 4 entries. Going for more BALANCE, I guess. ;) :D Very exciting, none-the-less.
I have been visiting Los Angeles, well, just once. haha. I AM SOOO EXCITED to say that I am designing my engagement ring. No, it's not official yet, but I got the approval to seek out designers/lapidaries/gemologists to team up on my AMAZINGGGG PROJECT!! OMG. You will be sooo impressed, I guarantee you that. The ppl that I shared my vision with, in La, asked if I had my own shop, or a card, and if I am a designer. ;) Yeehaw. lol. I will show you once I have the design constructed in photoshop. Right now I just have the pieces. :D
Knowing that we are *that* close to making a huge step/leap in our lives, I played the kiddie card, being so inexperienced and all...I've never had a promise ring, so I asked my boyfriend if we could go shopping in quarter machines because I have always wanted one of those cute plastic gem rings. We went to a number of stores and found none. :( SO so so so sad. Instead, we hit up Claire's in the mall LOLOL and I found an awesome ring. It's already chipping, but I was sure to photograph it while it's still intact. ;) I freakin' love it. :D So yess, I am twitterpated and obsessed with all the research I can be immersed in, while designing the ring of my dreams. Well, just short of my dreams. I would have to win the lottery to get my $200k pink diamond LOL. No, but honestly...I am so excited. :) My poor bf's ears are going to fall off because I randomly start talking about rings every few mins.
*SCREAM* :) So.. :) I've been busy. :) Not exactly with the right tasks, but I am totally .. doing stuff. :)

Ok, so 3 hours after designing them...WOW. I have assembled my cards. :) I love them lots!! :) (Even though I had to cut, punch and glue every single one. lol) I hope you love them too, when you see them at Glitterfest on Saturday!! XOXO

I adopted a baby Leopard Gecko today! He's so cute! But he is a handful, he has a neurological disorder and he flips to the side a lot. He can't walk too amazingly, I heard that he doesn't hunt crickets too well, and he is not too great at sitting in one spot for too long. He gets up and starts to walk, always with a stumble. Poor lil guy, it's so sad. But I am going to love him and give him a cute name. Something like "Bacardi" or "Jager" or "Smirnoff" lol. Or maybe even "Tipsy", one of my favs. :) Can't wait to decorate his tank accordingly, once I figure his name out. My last leopard gecko was Cinderella and she lived in a pink castle. She would walk up the steps and even peer out the windows when she heard noises. :D So, here is to my "special" adoptee. xoxo lil man. :)

I have been going to www.Threadbanger.com for years and I am in love with it. :) While there, one day, I saw a needle felted dog, and have always wanted to try out the technique. Although very new to the concept, I was able to make a thing or 2. I plan on making more things, but for now, it's just something new and fun to try out. I am farrr from pro. LOL. :D

My boyfriend and I took Panda out to the dog park for the 1st time. I was verrry scared because she hasn't socialized before and this was a huge step!! We had to unleash her in a huge area with lots of dogs and I was panicked the whole time, lol. Shawn was very proud of her and he made my day because it was his idea to take her out. :) All smiles with a side of scare. haha. :D (She wore the school girl outfit that Shawn gave her 2 Christmases ago!)
