FRIDAY, I'M IN LOVE / november 11, 2016
Things have been so busy this week!
I haven’t posted much lately in the ways of dyeing, but I do still dye things! This week I had two separate dye projects going on. The first was for my sister-in-law’s baby shower and the other was a custom dye commission piece for a customer. Totally different ends of the spectrum, both projects not for me! I love the way the custom top came out. She wanted a purple-blue vibe. Something more geared towards the colder months. The color inspiration came from the blue skeins in the yarn packs I have up in my Etsy shop right now. If you’re interested in a custom dyed piece, you can reach me here.
2. Christmas Planning
With my newfound, yet total allegiance to bullet journaling, I have decided to incorporate a Christmas planner into it. Interestingly enough, I haven’t been able to find a lot of bullet journaling posts about it. It seems as though there is a bit of a divide between regular planners and bullet journal planners with Christmas. As a result, I have been researching any and all sorts of Christmas planners and then just adapting the pages, forms or whatever to fit my needs in my bullet journal. So far, I’m tracking gifts, Christmas cards and a separate to-do list page for decorations. I still want to add in project/gift specific planning pages, Christmas movie watch list, and Christmas cookie planner. I’m really excited to use it. Because I’m a Christmas freak.
3. Melancholia (and whatever other Kirsten Dunst movies are available on Netflix right now)
Is it on Netflix? Does it have Kirsten Dunst in it? If so, I have probably watched it in the last week while working on some sort of project. Money’s tight this Christmas, so most of our gifts to others will be handmade. Subsequently, I watch a lot of movies this time of the year! Not sure why I like Kirsten Dunst so much but her vibe has always really intrigued me, sort of apathetic-cool. Melancholia is such a visually stunning movie. Some of her other movies (that are available on Netflix right now) aren’t as good, but whatever.
If you follow my year-long daily weaving project over on Instagram, then you will have undoubtedly noticed all of my most recent entries have been done in this little pink art journal my friend Esther made me. It’s given me a much needed outlet for my daily weavings while simultaneously allowing me to hone in on a longer, more detailed project. I’m using a lot of vintage photos and random ephemera pieces she has sent me over the years in it and I love finding some way to incorporate weaving into each page.
5. Autumnal Walks
My husband and I have been walking practically every day lately and it’s allowed me to really notice the change in the season. Weather is still pretty mild here (hello Nor-Cal), but the leaves and dropping and turning and everything is looking more gorgeous by the day. I’m indoors most of the time and I love how this forces me to interact with the nature around me. Also, today I found a syringe by the courthouse parking lot. See? Nature.
What do you love about the changing seasons? Tell me below.
