Do you ever wake up at an unexpected time in the morning and find yourself looking at the clock and having absolutely no understanding in what you're looking at? That happened this morning. I usually wake up around 7:30 on my own but I have an alarm set for 8 just in case and this morning I woke up at 7:30, looked at the clock, turned over with the intention of just closing my eyes for a second and the next thing I know I look at the clock and simply can't understand that it said 8:45. Talk about a rude awakening. Apparently I wasn't ready to be awake; my boyfriend tells me the alarm went off, I turned it off and fell back asleep. So much for the alarm and so much for the boyfriend waking up. What happened to team work?! So I had to run out of the house without my usual turkey sandwich pre-made for lunch and with a stale toothpaste taste in my mouth because I forgot to rinse. Not to mention I'm on a new diet plan that requires lots of running so my knees are bit unhappy with me. So it was a tough morning, that's all I'm sayin!

Last night I started working on a prototype of a boutonniere, I don't have them up in my etsy shop yet since its not perfect but this is what I've come up with so far. I like it (If I may toot my own horn), it seems classy, simple. I used tiny flowers made from some sheet music I had laying around and little gems I picked up in the impulse buy aisle at JoAnn's (they get me every time!)

I haven't decided on price point's either. Like I said, underdeveloped idea but this is what I came up with in between Mario Kart rounds with the boyfriend last night. I bought him Mario Kart for his gamecube and he's been a happy camper, it's a lot of fun and a perfect little break between folding flowers.
I suppose its time to pay attention to my day job!

  1. I don't do it very often, but when I am really tired I will turn off the alarm in my sleep...and wake up 3 hours later! Not good.
