25 Days of Crafts

The past two years I've done 25 Days of Crafts in December. This year I didn't really have time to do it. In 2012 I posted up my crafts everyday on Instagram and in 2013 I posted them up on here. I had a little bit of help last year. It was the first year I wrote out tutorials for each project, so it was quite a bit of work. Here are some of the tutorials I did last year. Click on the image and it'll direct you to the tutorial.

Catching Up

Anna Marie's 22nd Birthday Party - 2011
The semester is finally over and now I can relax. This past couple of months I've been quite busy. Since I got the flu last month I was trying to catch up with school and by the time I did, finales came up. Now that's schools over I'm catching up on life. 

This weekend I caught up with quite a bit of people I haven't spent time with in a while. I ate a lot of food, it was just ridiculous how much food I ate. One of my long time friend just got engaged, so we did a lot of wedding talk and organizing. I also caught up with a lot of house cleaning. I've neglected my house a bit, so there was a lot of cleaning and organizing I needed to do. Especially after the mess Alex and I made while finishing our Drawing finale. Alex and I also finally went Christmas shopping. I'm short one present, but I'm planning on getting it before this weekend. Stores are already getting packed and I can only imagine how it will be this weekend. 

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to decorate my house for Christmas. I feel like it might be a little bit too late to take down the Christmas tree. I'll think of something. The holidays are always the best time to catch up with friends and family. Who are you excited to catch up with this holiday? xoxo Alyssa.

Day Date

Yesterday our drawing class was canceled, so Alex and I had the afternoon off. I had to run around McAllen to take pictures of certain locations, but we decided to just enjoy our day. 
We stopped at Kaboom Comics in McAllen and it was our first time there. I've been wanting to go and never realized how close it was to school. It's some what under construction right now, so everything is kind of stacked in boxes and pushed to the side. However I did leave with two set of comics. JLA Leauge One and The Astonishing X-Men, I was hoping to get some Black Canary or Birds of Prey, but they didn't have what I was looking for or I couldn't find it. I'm still happy with what I left with tho. I plan on going back in about two weeks when they set everything back up. Everyone there is so nice and super helpful. 
We started getting hungry and stopped by this little shack in Pharr. I don't eat a lot of Mexican food, but lately I've just been wanting tacos. Alex recommended this place and said that they have the best Gorditas. The weather was nice and gloomy, so we decided to sit outside. I'm not a big fan of corn tortillas, so I wasn't too fond of our food. I was starving none the less, so I ate all of mine.

As soon as we got home I started reading the comics we got. I only let myself read one, because then I would of read most of them last night. Can't wait to go back to Kaboom Comics, so I can go through all their comics. Comics store + Mexican food = a good date.  xoxo Alyssa

Black Friday Shopping

Hey guys! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Did you guys go Black Friday shopping after you ate? I did, but I did my shopping online. I only bout two things this year. This Doily Collar Dress from Hot Topic and a Knit Skater Skirt from Forever 21.

I've been eyeing both of those items for awhile now. I saw both items were on sale, so I had to snatch them up. The dress didn't have free shipping, but you can get your item shipped to your local Hot Topic for free. I couldn't resist buying it, especially since it was available in plus size. Alex bought a new flat screen as an early Christmas present to himself and a couple of movies.

Can't wait till my items come in. Both items are still on sale. Forever 21 extended their Cybermonday sale and online only the entire Hot Topic site is 20% off.  xoxo Alyssa
