DIY while sick

Even though I was sick today, I went to Michael's to get some crafts for my "sick" day, by the way...it's FREEZING outside.

My mission this break was to make my room look nicer, well really only because Cellardoor Magazine had asked for some pictures of my room for their online magazine, so I needed to make my room presentable again! You can become a fan of them on Facebook, and see their recent issue of the magazine here. I'll let you guys know when my room makes it's first debut!

I made a cupcake wrapper garland -

I also redid my wall with pictures, and finally put butterflies I had found in my grandmothers thrift store in a shadow box, they look beautiful! -


I hung some of my polaroids with ribbon from lights I put around my windows -

and finally did the eyelash t-shirt I had talked about doing awhile ago, I think it came out really well. It's sparkly in person!

I would say my sick day was pretty successful!
pictures of my new year's eve outfit soon I promise!

oh, and thank you to Emily from Neutral Tuesday for the Haute Mess award! I'm supposed to say seven things about myself;
1. I'm obsessed/in love with polaroid pictures, I have hundreds and recently got a tattoo of a polaroid on my arm
2. I would die to meet Twiggy or Mary Kate Olsen...like really die
3. My goal is to become a stylist, and the show Styl'd on MTV is what I want my life to be
4. My little sister is one of my best friends
5. I can't wait to have my own apartment just so I can decorate everything from thrift stores
6. I love my dog Crystal
7. I hate when people whistle in general, in the car and especially to songs they don't know.

I'm definitely not that productive when I'm sick! Love your butterflies; dead ones behind glass sort of depress me, but they also charm me with their beauty...
