karen carpenter

Hi  I've not been around a lot but I'm really busy with schoolwork and everything blah
But I'm also writing a fanfic and I'm in the middle of making a zine! me!
So sorry about that.

Anyway, over the past couple of weeks my obsession with the lovely Karen Carpenter has grown, she was just so wonderful and angel-voice-like and beautiful and uebwevdfsha.
I've been listening to her like every day and nearly crying because I wish with all my heart that she was still alive and I wish that she had recovered... See I'm listening to Rainy Days And Mondays which always 'gets me down' (get it?)
I really miss her even though I never lived in her 'time' if that makes sense. Why did she have to leave so young?

In other news, I've also been a tiny bit more creative than usual, for example I made another flower crown 

And some pipe cleaner things

Also why are they called pipe cleaners like it's not really an attractive name is it. They should be called bendy fluffy sticks or something because that sounds a bit more fun.

I have a friend who I hadn't seen for about four years until the other day, and it was her fifteenth birthday.
And I customised a little notebook/diary/journal thing for her and I hope she really likes it ah! She's called Gabrielle and she's all cool now she even has a nose piercing wow

I put like loads of pictures on  the ol' instagram of things I put in it but here's the back cover!

On thursday after school in the sweet shop I was lucky enough to come across some candy necklaces for 25p each so I bought two yay! had to bite them really carefully though because I just got a brace about two weeks ago and it still hurts, so although I couldn't enjoy them as much as usual, candy is candy and I will never stop eating it no matter what they stick onto my teeth.

I cried for an hour after watching the last episode of parade's end because I was just so unbelievably happy with how everything turned out! I couldn't resist drawing a picture of Christopher and Valentine in the middle of my french book, and I'll not leave out the fact that my teacher said she liked the drawing because it was cute, instead of giving me the modern day equivalent to the cane for 'vandalising' school property. Though I have darned my locker, schoolbooks and folders with lace and photographs etc already so I really don't know why nobody has gotten onto me about that yet.

That's really it I guess, so I'm going to finish on a very old picture of me and Eve (her being at the front) made up as Aladdin Sane one night.

Please don't hate me Eve.
