{335} iLauren

totally obsessed with my iPhone. love all the apps. i still had my iPhone box so i snapped a pic of it to photoshop my name onto it. of course, you can't tell it's the iPhone box so it looks really plain. oh, well.

{334} doilies

yet another thing that i collect: doilies. i love their vintage look and especially love brightly coloured ones. i use them underneath my pyrex dishes to protect my shelves. see? they still have a purpose in 2012!

{333} monopoly deed

my favourite board game ever: monopoly. i had to use my name somehow! i wish now that i'd edited the whole card to read differently. oh, well. next time. ;)

{332} candy candy candy

how can i still possibly have room for more candy? all i've eaten is candy! i just can't get enough. plus, i thought these mint leaves and red gummy bears looked delicious together.

{331} kakuro

totally obsessed with kakuros of late. i find myself waking up at 4:30 a.m. and hauling another one out and an hour later i'm wide awake but know that i need to go back to sleep. it's ridiculous. i always get into these bizarre crazes.

{330} garland

almost out of christmas ideas and almost out of days where it still makes sense to use them! when i bought my first christmas tree seven years ago, i had a blue bomber themed tree and so i had blue and gold garland. now i've upgraded my style and didn't need that garland anymore. george couldn't help but get involved in this name for today.

{327} perry the platypus

my friends say that i'm in love with perry the platypus from phineas and ferb. i've never seen the show. i have no idea what perry's deal is but i know that i am nuts for his teal colour. i love teal and when i was in disneyworld and his face was plastered everywhere i knew i had to go home with something perry-related. so, i picked up this little guy. he helped me with my name today.

{326} new year's card

i was a little (okay, a lot) late with sending out christmas cards so i decided to do new year's cards instead. g and i got our "hair" done today and then my dad did our photos in his backyard. i rushed over to ss and got them printed just in time to hand out. :) my name is on it so it counts for this. :)

{325} expiry date

well, since it was supposed to be the expiry date of the world and all, i figured i ought to do something along those lines. so, i photoshopped my name as the "expiry date" stamp on this can of corn. :)

{324} grade school

remember when you used to have your name on your bedroom door and it would say "lauren's room--keep out!"? that's what i thought of when i saw these foam letters from michaels. i'd purchased them back in march but i finally prepared this name!

{323} rice krispies

i don't eat much cereal but i had this box of rice krispies left over from when i made energy bars (#252) so i spilled some out and shaped my name into the spilled remains.

{322} pencil crayons

phew! i just did a double-check to see if i'd ever done this idea before but i hadn't! it's so hard to keep track by this point in the project. i can't believe i'm almost done. i'm so stoked. :)

{321} blacked-out buttons

well, this is my third button name but i keep finding new uses for them to create my name! i saw this idea on another 365 blog (i apologize for forgetting whose!) and knew i had to try it too! only 45 names to go!!!

{320} my other name

i've done my nickname before but never how i'm addressed by my sweet nephew and niece. to them i will always be "auntie laurie"...not "auntie lauren". :)

december daily {part five}

{319} bulletin board

i have so many memories stapling and removing things from bulletin boards because my mother was a teacher. i spent so many afternoons after school helping her in her classroom doing this. so, i went old school and grabbed some of her old alphabet letters and stapled them to my own bulletin board.

{318} felt

i purchased all this felt many many months ago so that i could sew an iPhone cover (which i did and love). but, i'd never actually made my name from the felt. so, now was my chance! i would've loved to sew it on but i have been lacking inspiration and creativity lately. :(

{317} tampons

yeah, this had been on my list since the beginning so i figured it was about time i did it. :)

{316} twelve.twelve.twelve.

who knew that 12 was my lucky number? this morning i purchased $10 of silent auction tickets for our charity auction at work. then at 12:12 i took a picture of myself. two hours later i totally won a blue bombers gift basket that contained a $125 gift card! i think its a sign. :)

{315} rugelach

december daily {part three}

the next three entries for my december daily project...

{314} red solo cup

yesterday i went to a most awesome christmas party and we used these great red solo cups that had a peel-off label and you could scratch your name into it. no more accidentally drinking someone else's spiked eggnog! :) ps. how delicious is the mike's hard cranberry lemonade? yum.

{313} jelly beans

at our work christmas banquet there was this massive candy bar and we filled up on candy big time. however, there was still a lot of candy leftover, so it was brought to our offices. i, of course, got a big tupperware container and hoarded as many jelly beans as i could. then, this weekend, i took them all home and proceeded to eat them. :) i love me some candy. looks like george wanted some too.

december daily {part two}

the three most recent pages of my album...

{312} love actually

*sigh. my favourite christmas movie. i had lent it to a friend two years ago and she accidentally lost it so she ordered it online and it arrived finally! i immediately took it home and watched it! i cried and cried all over again. it's so freakin' romantic!!

{311} mom's baking

my mom spoiled us at work this week and brought in a huge tray of her amazing christmas baking. seriously. within ten seconds of me removing the lid, half the tray was emptied. we were hoarding the treats at our desks. it was awesome.

{310} christmas tags

i had every intention to print these, cut them out and attach them to a present before photographing them but then, out of nowhere, i didn't. :)

{309} christmas ornaments

i keep three pyrex bowls full of christmas ornaments as a centrepiece at christmas. love them. so...i emptied them out onto the floor and carefully put together my name. george only interrupted once so i only had to do the whole thing twice until it worked.
