And as I read I fell into a fairytale...

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  I have a few things that I wanted to share with you, I hope you enjoy them!
 Rachel and I took this picture one night while we were out at our Grandma's lake.  We were experimenting with our cameras and we put my camera on the slowest shutter speed possible.  I love the way it turned out...it almost looks as if we are not supposed to be there.   
 The other day I made this little book.  It was quite easy, I simply cut out pictures from an old anthropologie magazine and I decoupaged them onto a miniature composition notebook.  Then I tied a bit of string around the edge of the notebook and put a little note card in the corner that says, "just a few words...".  I am going to use this to write down little inspirational things.      
Here is a watercolour painting that I have been working on.  Rachel said that she was going to share some of her watercolour painting, so I thought I would as well.
Before I leave you I wanted to give you something to listen to. Here is a song by Vampire Weekend that me and Rachel have been enjoying recently.
Off to spend the weekend at Rachel's house,
Erika=]

Special thanks to my little sister Emma for taking the book pictures!
