Paring Down (and other thoughts)

I sort of re-evaluted some things in my art journal the other day. I’ve been feeling frustrated, some of it is due to not having a high enough dose of antidepressants which I fixed last week, and some of it is due to the fact that I can tell I’m quickly heading toward burnout and […]

warmth

FLEECE! I have a fleece jacket, it’s soft and warm, and makes me soooo happy. Because now I can go outside with a jacket and I’m not still freezing. I’ve been wearing a track-ish jacket for a few years because it’s small enough to fit under other jackets, but it wasn’t providing quite enough warmth. […]

Inspirational Wednesday

Earlier this year I signed up for an email list called The Brave Girls Club. Everyday they send me an email with a letter. I don’t read all of them, but sometimes (a lot of times) they write something that I *really* needed to hear and know about myself and it makes me really happy. […]

redecorating

I’m not usually one for rearranging or reorganizing often, lately, my office has been the exception to the rule. I’ve been on a quest to create a calm fantastical space for myself to create in, and for guests to sleep in. I’ve found that with the addition of new furniture (bookshelf, futon, chest) comes new […]

Yarn Balloons

Today I just wanted to watch a movie and do some crocheting. A while ago, I made a hot air balloon, and today, I made another one. This one is a little more frilly and whimsical…and pink..and purple. I took a picture of them both side-by-side. Now, all that’s left is to find a place […]

How to Make a Disaster (and then do something with it)

Yesterday, I spent all afternoon making a paper chain of rainbow hearts to put over the office door. Kind of like the bead things, but cheaper, because I had paper,markers, super glue and string. It looked fantastic I don’t know whether to blame the cat or the slightly open window for the chain-turned-distaster last night, […]

Anniversary Leave

Our 2nd anniversary is on Memorial day, so I probably won’t be posting until Tuesday. Today was warm, really warm – we might put in our AC soon – although now it’s drastically cooling down and we’re under a severe thunderstorm watch, so I’m almost shivering. I didn’t paint anything today, but I did exercise […]

I'm Better!

I’m so close to being back to normal, I’m really happy. Today I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and walked to the library to take out the Half Blood Prince, and then reserved the Deathly Hallows (on CD!). Can’t wait to finish the series, honestly. It’s moving and hits something that […]
