A creative weekend!

I’ve been in a super creative mood all weekend. I’m not really sure why. Maybe because I’ve had such a laidback week so I feel like I need to do something productive with my time now. Honestly, I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten more sleep in the past week than the average college student gets in a month. It’s been pretty fantastic. I wish I could continue to do that for the rest of the semester but I’m sure at some point my late nights will start happening again. But for now, it ROCKS.

Saturday night we had cluster craft night! We painted mason jars. It was really fun and they all turned out super cute! Here is mine:

I didn’t really have a plan with it. I kinda just did whatever, but I like how it turned out!

I also did most of my homework on Saturday. That’s really unusual for me but it let me have a pretty relaxed day today!

This morning, my friend Kelly and I went to breakfast at the Windmill Restaurant downtown. I love Windmill so of course I was super excited to go with Kelly! They have two-dollar cinnamon rolls the size of your head and they’re fantastic. And look how cute and festive my cappuccino was! I honestly don’t have a lot of Halloween spirit, but I was still excited about the cute sprinkles. Tis the season!

After we went to church, I came back and finished my homework. Still in my creative mood, I pulled out my guitar and learned some new songs. I hadn’t done that in a while so it felt really good!

I have also been looking for a good planner for basically forever, but none that I can find have enough space in them for me! I finally designed my own (as I’ve been promising myself I’d do for the longest time) today, and I am so excited about how it turned out! I just have pages that I’m going to print out every day to use, but I love them! They have just the things I need!

I am super excited to finally have a planner that’s right for me. The search has ended! Later tonight I took out my sketchbook from my senior year and started drawing again. I forgot how relaxing it is!

OH! BONUS PICTURE. I totally forgot. My roommate is in Nykerk Play (more on that later!) and on Thursday night, a bunch of morale boys came and decorated our room for her! It was a little crazy but super fun!

There was yarn everywhere and we had a lot of balloons to pop, but SURPRISE! There was candy in the balloons. Christin was very gracious and shared some with me. I have such a nice roommate! 🙂
