12 Days of Christmas Crafts: Day 5

.....and this, my friends....was what I gave to my lil nephew for Christmas: do boys like octopus? Well...he grabbed it immediatley and started to play with it and the awesome dinosaur (talk about blowing me outta the water...!!) that Z made for him...(I don't have a picture of it..so sad!)

I think it's kinda cute...he he

....in other news, watched Apocalypto the other night...anyone seen it? It was pretty awesome, even though we didn't have the subtitles (the whole thing is in modern Yukatan (spelling?) ...but I thought the words would've been distracting, anyways)...lotsa action..really, really cool art direction on the royalty and such. Cool...

...Also, in the process of opening an etsy shop. I've been on the fence for a while; looking into costs and shipping and networking oppurtunities....It will start teeny..and maybe, who knows..stay teeny...lol...=) We'll see how it goes. It should be up soon, anyway....=) You can expect sewing and I'm in the works of designing a few paper tags to go in there...fun, fun...

....I just can't seem to keep myself un-busy. Z and I should probably go out more...we're kinda homebodies lately: but it's so grey and yucky outside now...I can't wait for spring, cuz then we can go otu and enjoy the city....I find it impossibly hard to just sit at home and do nothing...in fact, I can't...even when I hang in fron of the tv I'm making something...it's kind of a curse...lol
...I got to play with the Dozens' some more on the weekend (these are my resolutions..they're hiding behind the photos):
...and this is an Ali-inspired canvas to go close to my scrap area, the quote says: "Dont's think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things, You simply must do." It about epitomizes the way I create stuff...And ironically, the first go at this canvas I made was overthought and horrible, so I ripped off all the letters and put down a fresh coat of paint and started again...ha ha....=)

Happy day to everyone!

I haven't seen that movie. That octopus is super cute. Wish you'd taken photos of him playing with them!

Its quite amusing how much you and I are alike. I can't be un-busy either and i always have to be doing something-even in front of the tv.

Love the lo and the canvas. Your style is so fun!
