As it turns out,

PBR does not sit well with me. No matter how many times I liken the cheap beer to winning awards (every bottle cap comes complete with a blue ribbon!), it doesn't live up to the standards I set for myself. So I'll just stay away from it for a good while (forever).

On the bright side, I managed to get Nicholas to pull over on the motorcycle twice yesterday so I could puke on the median. WITHOUT GETTING ANYTHING IN MY HAIR. (Like a boss.) My hair and my helmet were pristine. Though I can't say the same about my pants. But who wears pants anyway? 

(I still think I deserve those blue ribbons.)

Today will be more productive. On Saturday, after working on the bike, Nicholas was nice enough to build me a bookmaking cradle. So today I'll be making sketchbooks, and maybe a special surprise for Mia.

Stay away from cheap beer, folks. And Happy Monday.


  1. Hi Michaela! Reading your blog just made my day! Seeing all the cool stuff you've made has inspired me to get my sewing basket out. LOVE the merit badges!

    Stay cool,
    Claire [Marks]

    1. Claire, I'm so glad to hear from you! I'm glad you like the merit badges, because I plan on embroidering more all day today :) And if you end up taking out your sewing basket (which you should), tell me what you make! Good luck with your major!


Thanks for reading about some things I made today! Feel free to leave a comment here; I love hearing from you!

Love, Michaela
