with all that help, it was easy as pie to sweep up, mop up, organize, and plan/daydream about the upcoming changes i’ll be making to my apartment when i get back from the east coast festivities. in the works: a new bed! and duvet, and sheets, and big boxes that slide for under the bed to hold sweaters and pants. yay!
- ~ leslie harpold’s day 10 gif tags, featuring retro santas, snowflakes, and naked babies
- ~ from the diy shop ‘the walrus & the carpenter’, these gift tags are filled with color, monkeys, and argyle socks
- ~ robert sabuda, the really talented book artist that makes those gorgeous pop-up books for kids, has simple step-by-step directions on his site for making a christmas tree pop-up card, as well as a reindeer one.
amanda provided a great link to the site i used to believe, which collects people’s beliefs they had as kids, ranging from thinking seeds swallowed would result in trees growing inside bellies to thinking clowns ‘were born that way’.
my belief? “i swear on all that’s holy, until i was around 13 or so, i used to believe that really truly one day a dragon would just burst out of the sky, lift me up, and carry me off to the world i was really supposed to be living in. ” no joke, that. i still sometimes glance up at the sky, squinting and sighing.
a final declaration/confession: i have not bought or completed making a single gift and therefore am 0% close to being done with my christmas shopping.
