...around the studio/home...we are going with a live tree this year: meaning, friends of the urban forest, a group here in sf, will drop off a live tree for your holiday and pick it up and plant in a neighborhood around these parts...! how great is that? no chopping down trees for us (although i have enjoyed that immensely in the past, and we were seconds away from doing just that this year) there is something in me that is quite joyously happy about our live tree that will continue to live after we are done holiday-ing & being super festive with her...we picked an olive tree - so pretty! i can't wait to get her and decorate her with all my funky handmade doo-dad ornaments!
...picked up this totally cool nature encyclopedia from the 20's today - i want to do a serious of these illustrations cut up and colored perhaps, and then destined for glass pieces...there are some really cool ones...i'm not near my camera or i'd shoot some pics for ya...later maybe (i know i promised pics before...sorry!)
...let's see...going to go out for roasted dungeness crab & garlic noodles this week...we have a house guest and apparently, we are super behind in things we were supposed to have already done while living in sf - which is eating dungeness crab and garlicky noodles...eh well...that's why house guests come...to make you do all those touristy things in your own town you never do...i'll let you know what we've been missing out on...
...got a good deal of wool roving sent to me by another crafter that had too much...i'm so excited to try and felt with this stuff - i got a book too - "simply felt" - which should help me nicely on my way...i love trying new things!!
...and let's see...i'm going to post links to fabulous things that i want for the holidays so you can see all those amazing indie designers that are out there...no, no, not so you can buy them for me, but so you can be green with envy too!! (tee hee) ...& once i figure out the linking deal, which thank you so much to my new u.k. friend ;) i should be well on my way to mastering this blog -- ha ha!
...that's all for now...hope the hols are shaping up to be lots of fun and not too stressful...in a perfect world, i know...
