Crafty, crafty!

Sometimes, Katie and I find crafts online and try our novice hands at them.
And sometimes, those crafts turn out freaking awesome.
Not to too our own horns or anything.

Ok, it's not as easy as it looks.
First, we had to find a huge map. Good luck with that one.
Second, we had to cut out every single state.
Then, we had to trace every state on a piece of scrapbook paper, and cut them out again!

And ta-da!
A beautiful work of art!

Oh, crafting! How we have fallen in love with thee!

The one you've been waiting for.

Today was a beautiful day in Mesatown. I got to wear a cardigan for the first time!
But that's not what this post is about.

For almost 8 months now, I have been deeply interested in a book.
It was something I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that I would read.
But one day, on a large rock in a forest, I had an experience that I could never forget.
I could not let go of that small whisper.
So, against everything I had ever believed, I read.

After I read, I spoke. I learned. I cried.
I felt unbelievable happiness, calmness, and comfort.
I believed.

On September 24th, 2011, I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It's something I've been scared to talk about on my blog because of the way people treated me when they found out. But I'm not scared anymore.
I know I'm the same person, the same Brittany; I'm just much happier than I ever have been!
I know I belong.

Silly things.

I've been busy.
I've been doing a lot of things.
I've been doing a lot of serious things, actually.
So I'll start out with the silly, simple things.

Uno. Church activities sometimes result in making awesome delicious cakes and decorating them in awesome delicious ways. Yes, I like to use delicious to describe more than just food.

Dos. Working on fun crafts with my best friend. We've become obsessed with Pinterest and  finding cute crafty things to do.. if only we had time to do them all!

Tres. Sometimes your friends get sudden hulk-like strength and throw your guitar across the room in a fit of musical rage.. Or they just accidently bump into it during guitar class. I prefer telling people that the former happened, personally. It's more exciting.

Quatro. Harry Potter Puppy Pillow?

Cinco. I had my first Bahama Rama Mama. Oh my delicious. I'm so glad that Katie and I have nothing better to do than find sweet treats to eat on a Saturday night. If you've never had one, get off blogger and go get one. Now.

Ok, so that was just a bunch of random nonsense. Not only have I been bad at blogging, but I've been bad at picture taking as well!
But, October is my favorite month.
And therefore I'm making it a priority to be more creative and happy all month!
That includes taking pictures at every single activity I go to so that I can babble on about my boring life even more!
Aren't you excited?
