To end the nights festivities, the beautiful 22 year old Miss Venezuela,Dayana Mendoza, was crowned Miss Universe 2008. However, this is not the only story energing from the pagent. As the evening usually progresses from bathing suits to evening wear on so on, we witnessed a deja vu moment in the evening gown competition. Miss USA, for the second year in a row, fell by tripping on the train of her evening gown and landed on her behind. This mishap happened just as the judges had narrowed the 80 contestants down to 10, of which Miss USA, Crystle Stewart, was one of the contestants. But the jarred Crystle gracefully got up, smiled and waved to the crowd.
I feel bad for next years Miss USA because of thi trend that will make her no doubt more nervous than usual. The dejeweled gowns were beautiful, but I predict shorter ones next year.

I took these quickly in my room before heading back to Ottawa. I know they are not very artistic, but my camera was dying so it was literally 'turn camera on, snap as soon as possible before it dies. Turn camera back on, snap...etc.' But I love both of these and am so glad I
was able to snag them!
It has been eating at me that I do not spend enough time regularly updating my blog. I seem to say I will do something and do not get to doing it for a few days. I really want that to stop, even though it is hard to keep this regular when I have a 9-5 corporate job, and am busy at night. I am going to make a big effort to keep this regular.
I started a skirt a few days ago and just finished it last night. I get a huge sense of accomplishment when I finish something to the end. Most of my other clothing projects are half done or have come to a halt because I chose the wrong material or took on something that was too complicated. I will take pictures tonight and post them in my new 'What I Made' section shortly!
