28 things - thing 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27

I actually probably hate the word more. Yuck!!

19. I play the drums...on a sparkly purple drum set. I'll show you a photo one day.

20. I often don't buy things because I think to myself "I could make that". Whether or not I end up actually making it is another story.

21. I have two large puppets. Their names are Ricky and Lucy. Sometimes I think I am really funny and I make them do silly things like pick their noses.

22. With a lot of things I am either a perfectionist or a total disaster. There is kind of no middle ground.

23. I am a 'jack of all trades', I sometimes wish that I had one thing I am really good at.

24. I would love to be in a sitcom. I think I should be the new Michael Scott on the office. Only problem is...I am not a good actor.

Mine is the purple one. Ivan and I got these toothbrushes on the exact same day.

26. I can play the trumpet. I learned in high school and about a year ago we bought a used one. I'm not as good as I used to be but it's still fun!

27, I'm sure I have mentioned this before, but I'm a total hoarder. The new part is that I have a plan to make my hoarded items more organized so that I can call them collections. Good plan?

eep! only one thing left to share tomorrow!


thing 1 ... thing 2 ... thing 3 ... thing 4 ... thing 5 ... thing 6 ... thing 7 ... thing 8 ... thing 9 ...thing 10 ... thing 11 ... thing 12 ... thing 13 ... things 14 - 17

ps. Susannah just started her own version of 28 things! Check it out :) so fun!!


  1. the toothbrush.. mine looks the same hahaha!!!

  2. does that mean you hate the band chore too?

  3. The "I could make that" is something I can relate to, but I usually don't make it afterwards, which is a bit sad actually.

    Your toothbrush comparison is awesome ^^

  4. Oh my gosh! I love all of these, this idea was brilliant! #28 YOU'RE A GENIUS!

  5. thats so cool and random that you can play trumpet!

    Steffys Pros and Cons

  6. hahaha @ your toothbrush! that's what mine looks like.
    ps. 3 days or... 2 DAYS if you don't count today! Eeeep!! I'll email you back later today. :D

  7. Hahaha did you name them Ricky & Lucy after Trailer Park Boys (that was my first thought)

    As for the toothbrush... Jackson & I are the same, except reversed. I've always been a gentle brusher due to mouth pain from braces!

    Yay for being a jack of all trades. I wish I had one good talent too.

  8. I definitely do the same thing about not buying things because I know I could make them. Though I almost never do!

    And I am totally rough on my toothbrush too! I like to call it being thorough about my dental hygiene.

    Also, I feel like most crafters are hoarders at least a little bit. I'm going to school to be an art teacher, so I hoard EVERYTHING with the thought that little bits of string might be used for a future art project for my students. It's a slippery slope!

  9. anonymous, is that you alex? ;) haha. the singular 'chore' is not so yucky to me. it's that 's' that drives me crazy!

    danielle, haha, why thank you!

    kaylah! ya!! i'm so excited!!

    becky, yes it is a slippery slope, haha.

    jenny, no i got them when i was a kid (before trailer park boys). and i actually have only seen that show like once! am i a bad canadian?

  10. Have i mentioned that I love your blog? Well I do! Numbers 20 and 22 are totally me! This is an awesome way to share about yourself. :)

  11. I love that photo of your toothbrush! I have to get a new toothbrush often because mine always looks like that!!

  12. 20. I often don't buy things because I think to myself "I could make that". Whether or not I end up actually making it is another story.

    I do this all the time! Whenever I'm out with my bf I say this and he goes "BUT YOU WON'T!" lol, either way, if I wanted it bad enough I would.

    Also love the jack-of-all-trades fact. I feel like i'm good at everything but not incredibly awesome at anything. urgh.

  13. i've cut back on my hoarding since we've moved a few times in the last year and are going to be moving again soon. i do hoard stuff like pictures and bookmarking things on the computer. hence i am now addicted to pinterest haha

  14. oh my god Elycia that toothbrush is horrid!!x

  15. I love reading these. You're so relateable! The toothbrush one cracked me up.

  16. I am the same way about the toothbrush thing! haha! :D

  17. ha ha i think it is funny that you do the same thing to your toothbrush as Paul does to his. i have never seen anyone do this before! i hope you are having a wonderful day!
    much love,

  18. Woah we have numbers 19, 20, 22, 23, 26 in common...Scary stuff!

  19. I also hoard things. I work on it and I work on it but it only gets worse because I keep thrifting. Also, I hate being a jack of all trades, too. I'm a writer/designer/marketing whatever at my job, and I hate it sometimes. Why can't I just be a wizard at sewing and that's all? Jerks.

  20. I can totally relate to no. 20. Love the toothbrush picture!

    ♥ sécia

  21. Ditto on the toothbrush thing... I am really loving this series!

  22. Trumpet players unite! I played in high school too, I miss it :'(

  23. i do that "i can make that" too but then i never do because i never have time to make myself anything..i should change that! you have to share a picture of you and your drums, i would LOVE to see that! i feel like i am a jack of all trades too and often wish i was super awesome at one thing..oh well, i love doing all the things i do :D

    yay, one more..that means your birthday is coming up!!! :D


  24. Hey Elycia,
    Had to break you some news from Australia.... silverchair have announced their 'indefinate hibernation' with musical careers.

    That is a link to an aussie radio station with the ABC who were responsible for their launch into stardom. I've been pretty lucky and have seen them live heaps of time from frogstomp right through to neon ballroom. really cool guys.

    Rock on 'the chair'.

  25. linda! i heard!! so upsetting, and right before my birthday.

  26. Elycia.... this should cheer you up! Cat collages! funny aussie photographer and collager... i stumbled upon on etsy. cool cat pics.

    hope you had a rad birthday! x

  27. Your toothbrush picture is awesome! But maybe he just doesn't brush enough...

    Hey, I emailed you. Did you get it?
