My dreams of successful Halloween costumes for the pets didn't really take flight this year, despite my creative efforts. I tried to turn Peanut Butter the rabbit into a PB&Jelly sandwich (pictured above), and boy was that a struggle!! So this Christmas, I decided to give them a break and take comfort in other people's festive pet costumes...Cheers!

This year, with all the craziness, I assumed my tree would inevitably look like this one (above), filled with post-its and scattered thoughts. Thankfully, my friend Karyn decided to have some special friends come and decorate HER tree and it got me right in the holiday spirit!! Check out this very well lit tree and Santa's little helpers:
Dakota poses with the duck by the tree!
Desmond gets stoked!
Final Product! Happy Holidays!! Xo

"If Drawings Were photographs – [is] the first ever zine published by It’s Nice That. The brainchild of designer Rob Matthews and Illustrator Tom Edwards, put simply – 'Tom gave drawings to Rob and Rob tried to make them into photographs.'" I'm loving the results!

Sketchbook piece by Tennessee Thomas. "It was inspired by a very old book Z gave me called "The Heritage of Dress" or something an Edward Gorey child may have dropped on a walk."
I've decided since my sketchbooks have turned into random image printouts with no really personalized artistic twist, I'll be posting more from other people's journals in hopes that it can invigorate me (and others) to pick up a pen again...

What a wonderful time to appreciate all the gifts we have in our lives. Perhaps you'd like to send a note to a friend telling them you appreciate them (while supporting amazing crafters)?!

I found this treasure in my journal today and it lifted my spirits like you wouldn't believe. No, not just because of my 31yr old brother's hilarious handwriting, but the story that came with this note. He had to write a speech for his best friend's party and said to me, "Sis, I'm just gonna buckle down and write it." When I came to check on him an hour or so later, this was what was on the page: "Thank you. I am honored to be part of this joyous event." And it wasn't because he couldn't find the things to say -- it was that he cared so much that he wanted it to be perfect. I just love that about him.
Actor Will McFadden lit up prime time TV this week on ABC's hit series, "The Forgotten" (episode: Prisoner Jane) Check out his scene with Christian Slater here online. I'll tell you one thing, his slam-dunk performance won't be forgotten!! I am just so proud!!!!!!!!!!
I still have this photograph on my wall from when I was in middle school. I can't believe I'm seeing him live TONIGHT!!
Ps. Do you have this album? With that one song Jolene:
"Well I found out the hard way, I've had my fill
You can't find somebody with his back to a hill
Those big brown eyes, they set off a spark
When you hold me in your arms things don't look so dark
Baby I am the king and you're the queen"

I haven't read this one in years, but it was like revisiting an old friend...and I could use some advice these days, so how about it -- any other goof book recs my friends?!
"Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong." -Benjamin Hoff
