I am in love with the way that Spike Jonze brought it to life. The sets are amazing. The soundtrack goe so well with it. And the characters are loveable. Especially Max, he's adorable. I love that he interpereted Max. Max is basically the kind of strange child in your class in elementary school, who is creative, imaginative, and curious about the world that no one seems to understand. I loved it. Some scenes, I have to say, were quite strange for a children's book. In fact, some of the situations might be hard for them to understand. It really hits the heart. My Mum said that this movie will probably become a classic, like Wizard of Oz, because no one really liked it at first because they thought it was too scary for children. But then over time people loved it. This movie was great. You have to see it.
I've been doing alot of d.i.y.'s lately and I thought that I'd show you what I've been doing.
These shirts, I actually created last weekend. It's really simple and easy. I got some plain white t's from Michael's and created these painted on shirts.
This first one is inspired by my friend Tyler. He had gotten a tattoo of the summer on one of his shoulders that says Pure Heart on it with a blck heart. I still haven't got that chance to see it yet but I love his whole philosophy on it, so I created a shirt for it. The heart design was inspired by an incredible artist I met over spring break, Jim Freeheart. Since his last name is "Freeheart," he starts every painting he does with the heart, and then it gets painted over. His artwork is incredible and I hope to own someday.

This shirt sort of reminds me of the Play Comme Des Garcons collection. I actually had a dream about a green sweater with the lovely heart logo on it. I also would like to own something from this collection someday.
I also had a dream about some very interesting clothing that I had never seen before in my dream. A future collection of mine someday? I hope.
Anyway, I also created shirt that says "KARL WHO?" Inspired by the famous Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel and Fendi. He has created canvas bags and shirts with this design. I might re-do mine with a thicker line.
Today, I created some necklaces. I love necklaces and you'll never see me without one.
This necklace was created for my friend fo her birthday, I hope she likes it.
I fell in love with this heart capsule the first time I saw it in August, and I finally bought it today. I love the colour. It's a great piece.
Today, I finished watching the Lifetime movie of Coco Chanel for french culture points. It was very well done and I learned alot about Chanel. I still have yet to see Coco Before Chanel.
Well, I still have alot of my last minute Sunday night homework to do including makin' some crepes.
So, I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog and I hope you all had a great weekend. Let's see what this new week brings us.
