everything IS beautiful..

i have finally finished Everything Beautiful by Simmone Howell. it was such a beautiful book...i really do recommend you do check it out, it doesn't take very long to read, so if you want a quick and interesting, light-hearted read full of love and odd friendships, read this. 'Riley Rose, atheist and all-round rebel, has been tricked by her father and his irritating new girlfriend into spending her summer at spirit ranch holiday camp. There Riley meets Dylan Luck, recent paraplegic and fellow misfit-on-a-mission, and together they turn the camp upside down. Truths are told, secrets revealed and Riley's dreaded week away turns out to have life-changing significance...'
ah so today was a sorting out day...trying to decide what things i need and what things i do not need!!! de-clutter my room so to speak. i always seem to find things of interest when i do this, whether it be old badges or old art work.i was reading through an old newspaper from the other day and came across this amazing artist. her name is Mari Kasurinen as she takes my little pony dolls and recreates them into something new, based on a theme or certain movie! they are brillant, just look at them!!! :) how funny and sute are they! some of them do not even seem like they could have been a my little pony doll!! you can find her work on her flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/marikasurinen/

That book sounds like it would be a very good read, I am definetely going to find it somewhere!
Those necklaces are great too.
I just decluttered my room yesterday..it didn't help much, I threw away about 3 things.
At least everything is piled up nicely :)
