Cool Things

I haven't been up to much crafty stuff lately, but in order to keep this blog alive, I decided to post some stuff (new and old) I have lying around that I like a lot!

I am going to be super organized this year because of this. It fills up most of my desk!

I like my keychains. The cat on the left holds my subway tokens, and the Tamagochi on the right was from a McDonald's happy meal.

My Sigg water bottle has my name in indestructible label sticker stuff!

Woah! This photo got rotated by accident. Anyhow, it's my old timey pencil case. It never stayed closed very well so I'd spill all my pencils and stuff almost constantly.

Now I use it for markers. It still has all these old stickers from when I was in elementary school!

Crafts from 13 year old Katherine

Last weekend I was cleaning out my old room at my parent's house. There was a lot of junk to go through, but in that junk I found some very funny things! I had to take pictures of them, since I wasn't going to keep everything.
This was a caption contest from Owl magazine. I didn't write the speech bubble, my brother Peter did. I found it so funny, that I kept it until now!

This is the front page of my planner from grade 9. It sure looks like I got a lot of use out of it! (I didn't, though. I never really used a planner until last year.)

The next several photos are from my picture frame making spree in grade 8. I went through an "orange and blue" phase.

This one is beads glued right on to the photo!

a cheapy little frame from Crayola that I painted.

This is my favourite one. I cut out the frame from cardboard, then covered it with old Easter egg wrappers. I even made a little star! Please note the orange and blue backing.

A little faded, but this frame was so good. It had a back and even a little stand.

Another Easter egg wrapper frame, but a little worn down. Side note: when I was cleaning, I found a whole case (a crayola case...) filled with cool paper scraps and a TON of Easter egg and other chocolate wrappers.

This one is just scribblies, wrapped on cardboard. 

I'll end this post with two colourful dividers.

 A Porsche?

And stripes!
