Jumping Beans!

Soooooooo I guess I am naturally not feeling like blogging as much with all my deadlines coming up! EEEEK I’ll be so proud to have survived October when it’s over!!!

On Friday I flew down to L.A. for the day for a meeting. I don’t want to say much until something ACTUALLY happens, if anything, but let’s just say the meeting went well, and they even provided cupcakes and kitty cat notebooks!!! 🙂

I also got the most rando little prezzie ever from my manager. Lord knows why he had them in the 1st place! Mexican Jumping Beans!

They started jumping around in their little container inside my purse, and I couldn’t figure out what it was for a little bit!

Since I can’t post any progress pics of what I’ve been working on, we’ll skip to checking out a few cute things today. You can click on the images to go the pages.

    do you now your holding larva? you should wiki it, the bug inside is what makes the bean jump lol

    • oh yes i know!

      i was just discussing whether it was cruel to let it dry up and die in there, or if i should figure out a way to let it pupate and become a moth (ecological disaster?).

  • WOW that silver prom dress is the best of the worst of the 80s! i love it!

    • it’s one of those things i just want to HAVE and not necessarily wear. is that weird?!?! hah

    OH Twink- you need to go to my blog (June 01,09 post) & check out my seafoam green/aqua metallic prom dress from 1987 that i just wore again to an “old people’s prom” (yes- i am proud i can still fit in it 22 years later!!). by the end of the evening we realized it looked like a giant metallic vagina in the front… pretty, i know!!

    • oh my goodness! the color is amazing!!! if you just got it shortened….i would totally rock it myself!!!

  • Justin


    Id like to think that by giving you this gift, we have given them a chance! plant them in your garden and see what grows 🙂

    • Growing dead larva!!!! For the most part, only one of them was moving. I think they are drying up 🙁

  • Justin


    awww.. they were supposed to make you smile – not creep you out!

    • it’s half and half!!! it’s really cute to hear them clicking around in my craft box, but then i keep thinking about how they are moving because they are too hot and drying out and dying!!!!! haha

  • Justin


    yes but if you plant them and water them then you can at least make believe that they will hatch… for gods sake, don’t crack them open!!!

  • dee


    the tea party dress is soooooooooo purty! >< and the prom dress is to die for! XD
