01 February 2010

my dearest february...

oh how quickly you have snuck upon us. it is hard to believe that one month of 2010 has already gone by....please do not leave us as quickly. my gosh! as i type, i realize that my countdown is down to its final day. yes, february 2nd means the new and final season of LOST begins. you cannot even begin to understand my joy. february 2nd also means that my art club starts at school! for those of you who haven't read in awhile, once a week i will be having an art club @ LA that allows students to get their creative juices flowing. i am so excited. we will be creating art journals....you better believe i will be too. it is awesome to hear the kids talking about it. some of them begged for it to begin sooner!...i'm totally stoked.

....speaking of totally stoked. blessed. in awe. excited. yes, fill in the blank. today i met up with one of my "brides" (amanda) who royally hooked me up! so...even though corey and i still havent set a date yet, some planning has gone underway. we kind of have an idea of what we want and where we want it, etc. etc. this past weekend i was looking online for invitations and save the dates and everything i found was soooo expensive. its not that we weren't willing to spend it....plain&simple, i'm cheap. i am a DIY-megasaur. i want to and will do everything on my own....especially if i can save some gidas (pardon my spelling)...anyway, amanda had contacted me about confirming wedding plans (for her wedding) this summer...we had got to chatting about invitations and she told me to stop by the Y after work on monday (today). apparently some card shop went out of business and donated a TON of stuff to the Y....she told me i could have whatever i wanted because they were trying to get rid of it. there was a lot of interesting stuff....a lot of ugly stuff....then low and behold....there was stuff that i really loved. stuff that went right along with my "theme" (hahah) it was definitely a blessing from god. i mean, i took home bags and boxes full of stuff....expensive stuff. some of it needs that "danielle" touch to it....but my goodness...what a great launch pad! i just need to figure out how i want to get them printed....i really like the idea of getting a stamp made...but we will see....but ah! i was totally on cloud 9 today. what a total blessing! i will try and take some pictures of the things i think i will implement and post them tomorrow....

...want to know what else excites me? that tim burton's alice and wonderland is FINALLY coming to theaters in march. i have waited a very long time for this. if there is one thing you should know its that i am very fond of the creepy mr. burton films....especially when they are disney infused....and MOST ESPECIALLY when they are johnny depp infused. why yes, i love the oddball. i have loved the story through the looking glass for longer than i can remember. it honestly makes my heart happy. i have always been intrigued by the many interpretations.....whether it be through picture, words or film. i am just uber excited. if there is one movie i must see this year, it would be this one. especially since it will be in imax AND 3d. i am getting chills.....

well folks....i still have AM duty which means i have to be up EARLY. hope you all had a happy monday.
peace&love{danielle}
James 3:13-16 Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here's what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It's the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. Mean-spirited ambition isn't wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn't wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn't wisdom. It's the furthest thing from wisdom—it's animal cunning, devilish conniving. Whenever you're trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others' throats.

Hey Danielle! Love the picture on your profile! Congrats on the engagement! I hope planning goes well. If you need help with anything (although I'm sure you will have tons of help)just let me know. I have a few tricks up my sleeve.
