God Damn You SNL. What have you done to me?

I was talking to my friend Eliza on Skype last night and i've was telling her that I hadn't really been blogging a whole lot because I don't really know what to say. I haven't really been doing much all my friends are either working or travelling, god damn them! and I've lost my camera charger which is the most annoying thing in the world because it's now out of battery. So with a mixture of talking to Eliza and looking at tips from other blogs who say you should blog about stuff that's you know... you I realised that I had something to talk about...

I am absolutely obsessed with Saturday Night Live right now. To the point that I think I have a problem.

It all started when I got a months free subscription of Netflix and randomly decided to watch it when I was hung over one day and I've pretty much been obsessed ever since. Which is a bit weird because i've never been a particularly big fan of sketch shows. I think one of the main reasons is because whilst I watch it I like to pretend that I live in New York City living a sexy life. And I guess because it's funny too... I'm a sucker for Stefon, any political impersonations*-especially when Jason Sudeikis does Joe Biden- and obviously the digital shorts/weekend update/ anytime anyone dresses up as an animal. OH and TRIANGLE SALLY!

Needless to say I now feel like I MUST GO TO NEW YORK! My friend Hannah visited a few months ago with her boyfriend but said that she wants to go with girls so she can go shopping so I may have to make her come with me. I really, really want to go in the winter time, I wanna bundle myself up and walk around Manhattan. That's the weird thing, when I imagine visiting I'm never really doing anything in particular, just walking around in the cold with a (faux) fur coat on, maybe eating a hot dog.

So that's pretty much what i've been doing, watching SNL whilst making some cards. I managed to put a couple of listings up (which you can see here and here)... and pretending to live a sexy life in New York.

Not the most exciting thing in the world but a broke student can only do so much with her summer!

I haven't blogged for a while so I'm hoping a few pictures of cookies will make up for it.
My cousin Lucy came  over to visit and we did some baking! We just made chocolate chop cookies, which is pretty conservative for me as I usually like to try and stuff them with oreos and other chocolaty treats but the times I've done that they have gone a bit wrong so I thought we should play it safe! We ended up making a giant cookie, which would have been much better if we had sweets to put  on top of it but alas, we didn't... still pretty good though!
I haven't been doing a whole lot, just walking tattie and the neighbours dogs and having a go at paper embroidery (which I'll post about soon).  Me and lucy also had a go at making chocolate mousse which went well! and Lucy had the genius idea of crumbling up crunchies and chocolate as a surprise at the bottom! Also i've some how managed to loose BOTH of  my camera chargers so there's gonna be a lot of istagram photo's for a while.
Here's more Cookies...

Bear in Pants

Bear in Pants says Thanks!

Bear in (green) Pants says Thanks!

Bear in (blue) Pants says Thanks!

I got those thank you cards done. You may call me Mr. Productive.
I was just thinking, I've been selling cards to the states lately and for them pants are actually TROUSERS!
Maybe I'll have to make some American Bear in Pants cards...

YEAH! I opened my shop about 3 weeks earlier than predicted! I got more birthday money than I thought I would get so I thought I might as well spend it on some card supplies! I hope you like my listings! These are just a few of what I put up and I want to come up with some new ideas too. Also I completely forgot about thank you cards but i'll put them up soon.

Check out some more listings HERE!

Who knew hand ball was a sport?

Even though I was never going to be in London during the Olympics, I've been grumbling along with everybody else at the thought of it. So much so that I forgot that I actually quite enjoy watching it!
The opening ceremony was awesome. It had Mr Bean, James Bond and Voldemort in it and oh yeah, by the way... we invented the World Wide Web!
 I'm quite girly with what I like to watch, such as gymnastics and diving but we've been watching the swimming and rowing down here in Cornwall where team GB (and NI!) have been doing pretty well!
Speaking of NI, after wondering how many Northern Irish Competitors there are in team GB and we only have three! (I think) but alas we are a small country aren't we. So in that case I will  be patriotically watching the men's hockey when Iain Lewers will be representing us (yeooo!) and I was cheering on the Chambers' brothers in the rowing yesterday. 

In other news I completely went against my plans to be good with my money courtesy of East Magnolia Vintage! God damn them! 

But at least I have this pretty dress...

and blouse!
