I think my picture might er on the blurry side. I took it late in the afternoon, with too many shadows coming through the window. Perhaps we can look past that. Here is a small snap shot of what I am doing right now. I bought a copy of Wildwood, a magical woodland adventure aimed at the young (at heart) and created by a very cool husband and wife writer/illustrator team. I saw their story on Etsy a couple of weeks ago (there is a little movie about co-creating the book there) and I was smitten by the care they took to collaborate and create together. And it looks mysterious and a little sinister. I can’t wait to read it, especially as it gets rave reviews from Lemon Snicket, the (pseudo) author of the Series of Unfortunate Events (I own and have read all 13 of these!).
I have finished my first EVER crocheted thing. It is a triangle neck scarf. A big thank you to Kristen for teaching me how to crochet, and then subsequently re-teaching me at every Craft Group since until I finally, sort of got it.
I got some cute tattoos in the post from Tattly. I ordered the Julia Rothman watch ones. I would have put them in the picture except I have miss placed them since this morning. So in its place is a cute freebie that says ‘Love what you do’. I am going to wear it tomorrow.
I also got some very nice postcards in the mail from Etsy seller mrseliotbooks. They are graphic and modern and remind me of the work of Max Bill, who I am learning all about in class. He was a Swiss Modern Graphic Designer, from the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Small girl and I bought some flowers. They are called Blue Buttons, and they are tres sweet. All floaty and not really blue, more magenta. But we are not fussed.
Watching lots of New Girl. Enough said about that. We love Zooey. Almost as much as we love Maggie. I think it pays to have a kooky name in Hollywood.
And I got a 78 on my first assignment. Happy. Busy. Tired.
