Time is flashing by at the moment. Seriously, my days are blurring together like crazy. I always feel this way in Autumn and Spring, I suspect because they’re “in between” seasons. Hopefully with Winter starting I’ll be able to feel like I can relax. So, what in this last week has made me feel all warm and glowey inside?
Wreck This Journal! I think I’m addicted. I keep on checking the tag on Tumblr. I’ve been making posts about my one most days and I have a need to do things to it all the time. I’ve been carrying it around with me. I stopped in the street the other day and collected fallen leaves to paste in. I’ve been adding more four letter words, and putting my favourite songs lyrics on blank pages, and and and. OK, I’m pretty sure you’re sick of hearing about it, so I shall do a competition. If you want to win your very own Wreck This Journal, with a note in it from me (or a wrecked page maybe..) then leave a comment on this blog post. Mention something you’d do to wreck a journal artistically and I will select my favourite answer. Comment to win!
Patchwork. I made another patchwork wristlet for my mum, I’ve been making tiny quilts for use in doll houses which was awesome fun, and I am eagerly anticipating my latest order from Spoonflower so I can continue making my science fiction quilt.
Honourable Mentions: Watching Gilmore Girls because it’s adorable, yummy hot food, wearing my hair in weeny little braids, texts from friends, being honest with people, fries, drinking with people on Saturday, making new friends and my trackpants.
Captain Jack Harkness.
Adele, Rolling in the Deep. A seriously epic song, a beautiful, talented singer and an awesome, weird video.
…And the new world record for lipdub music videos, the whole town of Grand Rapids collaborated for this epic 9 minute single take version of American Pie. I always get a little overwhelmed with these things, everyone working together for such a fun cause. Loved it. Also watch for the line “as the flames climbed high into the night”.
