Kelly's Ghetto DIY

Wow...I almost put DUI there for a minute. That is just bizarre...lol.
For the last few days I've been technically not allowed to be on the computer since my room is...um..."less than clean" (*cough* a mess). My mom usually has let me get on the computer some anyway, but we've been going out shopping (after Christmas sales! wahoo! i got some great stuff! more on that later...) and getting back later, and my dad has been more strict about me not getting on the computer...
But right now they said I could get on to work on this story I'm writing, as long as I went to bed soon...soooooooooooo, I'm multi-tasking. :]

Ok, so here's the dealie: I have two awesome DIY projects!!! (well one's more like a kindergarten project...but still.)
1st- MY EARRING HOLDER!

Materials: HUGE posterboard to cut the white piece from, ribbon, markers, and random Hello Kitty things of a couple old Valentine's. no kidding. oh, and of course, earrings!

I did this about about a month ago because my earrings were EVERYWHERE and I just couldn't find anything! I really have a ton of earrings...because I still haven't put about half of them up there... Sorry about the crap picture quality, it was taken with a camera phone.

2nd - My lovely kindergarten project AKA a popsicle stick box!!!!!

look a random sticker on my hamper!
I was cleaning my room and found a BUNCH of popsicle sticks...so I decided to do something constructive with them! (I made a box like this for my dad once...in like 2nd grade. haha.) I'm not sure what I'll put in it yet...but I'm sure I'll think of something.

I also wanted to post pictures of a couple things I got shopping!!!!! (They're both from American Eagle, and I got a bunch of money off both of them! Gotta love sales!)

My Beautiful Orange Sweater!!!! Just a plain basic color, but it is SO bright, which I love.

I've wanted I shirt with ruffles down the front for a while and I finally got one! YAY!

I also almost got HOT PINK tights at Forever 21 today...but sadly all they had left were pink socks and the tights on a mannequin...which I even offered to buy...until I realized they poked a hole in the tights so this stick-thing that held the mannequin up could screw into the mannequins leg. I was REALLY sad...I may just have to suck it up, order them, and pay shipping. =[

Only one more day of '08 to go guys! :/ I'm really having mixed feelings about that...only 5 months until all my senior friends graduate...but only 4 months til I'm 16! wahoo! Watch out! I'll be driving!

I love the ruffly shirt. I made a earring holder once, but I never really wear earrings anymore. The popsicle box is cute...err, I mean ghetto. Have a wonderful new year!
