Pug Love

How could you not love a face like that?  Ruby gets away with murder because of those eyes.  I just can't say no.  I love my baby girl. 

In other news, I received a postcard from my other happy mail partner Tyler.  Thanks Tyler!  I love this happy mail thing.  I like meeting new people with shared intrests and as I've mentioned about a thousand times, I LOVE MAIL!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

Home Sweet Home

I love going on holidays but getting back home and sleeping in my own bed is the best!!  This past weekend, mom and I went to Edmonton to watch my cousins year end dance recital. While we were there, I of course made sure to go shopping at the West Edmonton Mall.  I'm such a tourist.  I've been there a million times but I can never get enough.  I love this mall!  We even got to see Two Toed Sloths:

Who knew they could be so cute?  They were totally performing for the crowd.  Hanging upside down and chasing one another.
And of course we had to hit Whyte Ave.  my other favourite place.  Among other things, I managed to go to a cool candy store:

and get my fortune told by Zoltar:

I also went to a cool cupcake shop called Fuss Cupcakes and had an outrageously good vanilla bean cupcake.  Yummy!  Funny how my favourite stores usually involve food!  I'm making it my mission to visit every cool cupcake shop in any city I visit from now on.  When I was in Vancouver in March I went to the Original Cupcakes shop and it blew my mind.  I'm thinking of dedicating a journal strickly to cupcake shop reviews and consumption logs.  Whaddya think?
Since I've been away for a few days my postcrossing cards have made it to their destinations so now I get to send out more!  I love mail.  Speaking of which, right before I left, one of my happy mail partners sent me a card.  Thanks Cristina!
Hope you are having a great Monday.

I finally got one!

So I've been thinking about buying one of these for like, 2 years, seriously.  I looked for them everywhere but they took a long time to get to Canada.  I had all but given up on it, until I walked into Canadian Tire last week and spotted this beauty.  Who knew that Canadian Tire carried Polaroid Pogo Printers?  I was still debating about whether or not to buy one, even though the price was half of what it was two years ago, and then my dear mother bought me one.  Score!  It prints cute 2x3 photos that can be used as stickers too.  I was (and still am) super pumped about my new baby.  I have only printed a few pictures so far but I love it.  The pictures have a grainy retro look to them.  I think they'll look great in my journals.  Plus this thing is just a bit bigger than a deck of cards so it fits easily into my bag.
Here's a peek at some of the pics I've taken:

my absolute favourite summer treat!  It's not just a creamsicle, it's an Extreme Creamsicle.  I think the people who own the corner store by my house have started to wonder about me.  I go in there with the correct change for my creamsicles.  They know my dirty little secret.

Besides playing with my new toy, I've been making envelopes out of recycled paper bags:

and I found this (still to be named) cutie at a craft fair this weekend:

and check this out:

Too cute right?

Now I'm off to watch the season premier of "Lie to Me", yay!

P.S.  I am super excited about Janel's 30 Day Journal Challenge.  You should definately check it out.  I am hoping it will help fill the void left by the end of the Tell Your Story class.
