FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE / october 21, 2016

I have to constantly keep reminding myself that yes, life is supposed to be fun (even in the times when you are tried and tired and ready to give up). If you can for one moment, find joy, then everything will ultimately be OK. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, now onto the list!


1.       American Horror Story (on Netflix)

I’m always late to the game on the hip shows. Always. Why did it take me so long to watch this? It’s amazing! I’m not much of a horror fan really, but the changing of the seasons makes me wanna get alllll creepy. We binge-watched like half of the first season while playing Sequence. If you’ve never played Sequence, you’re missing out! It’s one of my favorite board games. It took us forever to get through just one game cuz we kept getting distracted by how good the show was!

2.       Mascots (Netflix Original)

I love Christopher Guest movies. Dog Show, Waiting for Guffman, …Spinal Tap. I literally squealed when I saw that he came out with a new one. It’s good too. Not as good as Dog Show, but it’s good. I absolutely love Parker Posey and I love that they incorporated her character from Waiting for Guffman into it.

3.       Society 6

I just set up a Society 6 store (here) and I’m pretty excited about it. It’s something I had been meaning to do for some time, but just never got around to. It’s so easy! I have listed a few of my daily weavings (learn more about my year-long project here) as prints. Due to the varying sizes I work at (mostly small scale) I am unable to get large, high resolution images for shirts, etc., so for now, only prints are available. The process for uploading and editing is almost effortless and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to offer items with their artwork on it.

This is actually sort of clean for my desk. Yikes.

4.       Giant Ouija coffee mug

They had so much Ouija board stuff at the Spirit store this year. How does one not buy it all?? I caved only slightly and bought this mug (and a tablecloth). This thing is HUGE and holds way more coffee than I realistically need to drink in one day (but what the hell). I LOVE IT SO. While I personally don’t fuck with Ouija boards (“Hello operator? Demon calling!”) I love the concept and imagery. How has it managed to infiltrate pop culture considering how channeling and divination are so vastly frowned upon? It’s pretty intriguing to me.

5.       Screw Punch

This thing has saved my ass quite a few times. It’ll punch a hole through almost anything! I used it to weave through a book cover (here) and also through a wooden gift tag (here). It’s pink and comes with three different sized hole punches. I was looking at this particular one, but when I found this one in Tuesday Morning for cheap (I think I only paid around $6.99), I just bit the bullet. Literally one of the best tools I have bought in a long time!
