although I'm generally a bit of a control freak about the music I listen to, I've been really enjoying this site- a constantly updating playlist of mellow music to fall asleep to. I use it during the day when I find my own music distracting.

thinking ahead

sort of obsessed with the idea of building myself a tiny home.

of course, I'd never be able to marry, or invite anyone over, ever.

But in the meantime I've got it hard

more crafting...

I like switching from one project to the next- although in doing so my living room eventually becomes carpeted with bits of fabric and yarn and paintbrushes and glue. Anyways, last night I rotated between knitting, experimenting with covering cigar boxes with fabric (using a sweater did not work) and creating an odd little candle holder. I didn't set out to make a candle stick holder, I was just playing with paper (strips of magazines) and then more paper (rolls of telephone book pages from I project I'd given up on) and made this odd little useless cup, which I bound together with hot glue to hold one of my newly thrifted candlesticks.

Strangely pleased with it, but still feeling slightly crazy. The flannel-shirt cigar box is my new favorite...I almost sewed up my cozy old flannel shirt where it was ripped, but decided it was time to turn it into something else. It's life as a shirt was a good one, I was not it's first owner but surely it's proudest. It's been on a first date or two, and worn to many shows. It will live on in my apartment, probably holding more craft supplies.

still trying to make all my christmas presents.

oh, to bee a machine

at the end of the work week, there's something about this video that's so easy to relate to.
not particularly beautiful to watch, but far easier to take than 'bee movie'.

ok, back

now that nablo's over (and i blew it. ha!), I'll be spending a little more time over here at this blog.
I've been thrifting like a ninja lately, spending an embarassingly large amount of money on things I'm not even sure what to do with.
Yesterday I bought this lamp for 1.91. Ok, so it needs to be rewired...but there's a bulb on the inside of the glass part. It's going to glow. Now do you see why I needed it?
