So, I bought a colouring book of mandalas, in a bid to do something relaxing and try to quiet the noise in my head. It's a pretty lovely book, and I'm enjoying picking colours and making patterns in how I'm using the colours.

But I'm gonna guess that the whole "adults colouring is a good idea for relaxing and meditation" thing did not mean for me to be doing it while watching The Walking Dead.

On the plus side, it is pretty relaxing, and I'm finally able to tell Cameron that I watched Season One, which he bought me years ago and that I've never watched until now.

Onward to Season Two, I guess!

So I finally completed my December Daily album! I was finally able to convince my sister to send me the picture I needed to complete the final page. So, over two months later, here is the final page of my December Daily 2011 album:

Feel like I didn't do a whole lot yesterday, but I did - just not much that I wanted to record in my December Daily album (I started Aziz's present, and I was right, my sewing machine is messed up. I didn't get any further than cut out all the pieces. Hopefully Scott's mother can lend me her sewing machine).

Christmas Cheer )

So I put day 5 in the title of my last post, but didn't actually include it. Whoops!
Let's see if I can remember both this time )

Continuing on with December Daily: Day 4: childhood memory.

I should have been doing this all along! )

Dec 3, 2011 - One of a Kind Craft Show and Sale!

Dec 3

There were so many awesome things that I wanted to buy for myself! I did buy a few things for myself (a beautiful letterpress calendar! A fancy winter hat!), but I mainly stuck to my Christmas shopping list - knocked off some stuff for Scott, Stacey, Laura & Zaid, Mum & Dad, and got ideas for stuff to make for Stacey and Sue. We were at the show for ages, but it was pretty great.

I've got off to a good start with my December Daily 2011 project - I actually remembered to do Dec. 1 while it was still Dec. 1! I'm just trying to decide what will go in today. I've got Saturday and Sunday planned out in my head.

For the curious, here are crappy photos of the album cover and the Dec. 1 pages:

And...Day 1: Holiday Cards!

Dec. 1


And Day 2: a holiday haircut.

Just finished watching Closer. It was...okay. I was bored during most of it. I just couldn't bring myself to care about any of the characters, although the closest I got to caring would have been for Natalie Portman's character. My favourite part of the movie was the end. Not because it was ending, though. I liked how you get to see her passport, and find out who she really is, and then he sees the plaque, and finds out who she isn't. Stupid, smug Jude Law's character.

Now I will be creative for the other people in my department for tomorrow's theme day. Our "theme" is funky sunglasses and hats. I've got black velvet sunglasses, and my orange Pippi Longstocking hat for myself. I'm making sparkly things to attach to my co-workers' sunglasses, since they were all "I just have my regular old sunglasses", and I may make one for myself as well, since you can't really tell my sunglasses are funky unless you get close to them. And I may bring my kindergarten hat (it's blue, with Mickey and possibly Minney (sp?) Mouse on it, with my name embroidered on it. From my first trip to Disney World when I was in kindergarten). I don't think I have any other hats except for baseball hats. If only I still had the hat signed by indy car drivers and the dude who owns the company that sponsors them. Damn, I can't remember his name. I think it starts with R. But anyway, I don't.

One day I really will get around to writing the entries about things of actual consequence.
