It's a beautiful day

I'm sitting here enjoying this amazing Arizona Spring day, about to head out to a little sewing group and an early Easter dinner so I thought I'd check in and give you a teeny tiny update: 

I'm a little late on posting this, but my Android-owning self hopped on the Instagram train the other day!! Find me using this screen name: @adie_ if you'd like :)

Happy happy happy Spring, and for those that celebrate, happy Easter!

Remember when I was freaking out about Titanic 3D here? Welp, I don't know if Danielle and I could have enjoyed it more. For those of you that have seen it too, wasn't it MUCH crazier in 3D? I have a strange fascination/mortal fear of large vessels inside and outside of large bodies of water, so when key horrible events were happening related to the above, I was seriously shaking in my boots (Danielle and probably half of the theater can attest to that!)
Aside from that, I also really loved that Danielle and I made a point to re-analyze the movie even though both of us have seen it countless times throughout our lives. I guess it was really special to re-watch it through our new life 'lenses' and see which heart strings were tugged now that we're older and have new priorities in life.

I'm making headway in Patti Smith's book, Just Kids. It's amazing, and I'm really going to hate the day I finish it. The writing comes across with such ease that it seems like she is one of my good friends. When I read books like that it really infiltrates my life. So much so, that I have to resist the strange urge to tell her life stories as if they are my own, or those of a good friend..."Oh, you're reading a Ginsberg book? Well, when I first met him, he thought I was a boy and bought me a sandwich!" ahahaha ;) If you haven't already, I really recommend it.

Mixed blessing alert! I didn't pass a placement test for school (for those of you that don't know, I'm getting my post-baccalaureate certification in Elementary Education...more on that in a future post) which would have allowed me to take my final 3 classes in the program. This means that I will have to push back those classes until the Fall, which is when I'd planned on finishing the whole shebang and when I'd hoped to be doing my student teaching...a big fat delay in my whole process. BIG BUMMER, right? 
Well, I'm just saying fughheettabooout it! I can' change it, so I might as well embrace it as a beautiful opportunity to work harder in the studio. So, I've decided I'm going to produce a Spring/Summer Adiemade update. Keep those beautiful eyeballs peeled, because I have a few great one of a kind and other special pieces in the works. 

I'd better get back out there and enjoy this beautiful weather! I hope you all are as well and are having the most amazing day evvaaarrrr!!


  1. Yay for spring! Happy to hear from you again Adie, I always love when you blog! I followed you on Instagram, and so sorry to hear about your test. How awesome that you're obviously making the best of the situation and searching for the silver lining! <3 So much love to you my friend!

    1. Thanks Caitlin! You are always such a great friend to me <3

  2. I think I had patty smiths book in my hand about 50 times already....even walked it to the cashiers...but then always set it back. It's one of those books I never bought but always feel highly attracted to. I've never heard anybody talk about it so I was always a little skeptical. Now I really want to read it :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!

    Bummer with the test....but I think It's awesome that you can move on and see it as an opportunity. I basically failed last semester too and I really think it was a good thing. It made me think about things completely different and I think I really learned a lot from failing.

    As they all happens for a reason and we all grow from failure.

    Hope I could keep my mind so positive all the time! ;)

    Hope you had a great day!

    1. Thank you, Mel! I think you are a really wonderful lady (just so you know) and I'm really loving getting to 'know' you here and through IG!
      Yes, failure is an opportunity for growth, just like success. There is a learning experience to be had in mooosssttt things.
      I also wish it was easier to keep our minds in the positive. Ah, the struggle.
      Hope you're doing well!!!

  3. I love your blog. I think we should follow each other!

    Much Love
