I Love Mondays

That's not a joke. I really do love Mondays, and I'll tell you why.
This girl doesn't have aaaaany classes on Mondays, or work, or any commitments at all usually. So I get to spend the entire day doing homework do whatever I want!
Anyway... here's some junk I like:

Not only do I think these hand-made necklaces are cute, but also by posting this I'm entered to win a free one! And I love free things!

(Enter the jewelry giveaway sponsored by Bumblesea indie jewelry / indie fashion blog.)

 2/ My Homework (also not a joke)
Currently I'm designing a how-to guide for children with diabetes who want to learn to test their own blood sugar. Maybe that doesn't sound like fun to you guys, but I'm actually having a lot of fun doing it. And maybe this is tooting my own horn, but I think it's turning out rul well (which is pretty unusual).

Test-Strip Steven, obvi
The how-to guide consists of about 20 cards and a poster. Some of the cards introduce the characters (the supplies used, above) and the rest illustrate the steps (below). Children can then lay the cards out in the correct order, helping them learn.
Very important step. Kids are filthy.

Then they could also put the steps (once in the right order) on the poster, below.

Makes you wish you had juvenile diabetes, right?
I'm still working out the colors, but I do kind of like the way it is right now...

3/ Pumpkin Spice Lattes
All of them, from anywhere. But today I learned that ones from Dunkin Donuts cost about half as much as the ones from Starbucks, and taste a little better.

    But no, I do not want juvenille diabetes because of you poster, good luck selling that one.

    I hate that you love Mondays because I hate Mondays.
