*** scratchcards ***

Another obsession I have always had is one for scratchcards. There is something deeply soothing, but also exciting, in scratching a scratchcard.  It's not much unlike the need I feel to push an elevator button before other people do...  I came across a 'how to make your own scratchcards' blogpost today and felt the desperate urge to share it with the world.

1. You will need cardboard, your 'ticket', glue, contact paper, silver acrylic paint, dishwashing liquid
2. Stick your ticket onto your cardboard
3. & 4. Stick the contact paper over the scratch part of your ticket.
5. Mix dishwashing liquid with paint (1:2 ratio of liquid:paint)
6. & 7. Paint over stratchy part
8. Hey presto.

So superduper amazing.

*** hello kitty ***

I have mentioned in a previous post that I am increasingly regressing into a state of liking girly things, such as the colour pink and heart shapes.  Lately I have developed some form of fetish for hello kitty things. Recently my (lovely) parents financed a new laptop for me, which I am absolutely adoring.  Oddly enough though, I was, not quite but, almost as excited to find a hello kitty laptop bag for my new 'shiny' as I was for the acquisition of the splendid machine itself.

Yesterday I saw this more-than-magnificent hello kitty sandwich maker. I must have one... I feel sorry for my children, if ever I am to have any- I'm sure a lunchbox filled with hello kitty sandwiches will not only be cause of extreme embarrassment, but also drastically decrease any popularity points they may have during their teen years...

*** getting work done ***

I've been a bad, bad blogger.  The past month I have barely had time to eat I'm so busy at university, so I have neglected the grand total of my 29 followers... Oh the stress of it all. End of this week is deadline day, which means a superstressfulweekfromhell, but also a light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait.
