Ahhh...

Who doesn't love a crafty day? =) these are the days i live for, I think...he he...well, family days, too. Z has a 3D animation class Saturday mornings, so I laze around, make coffee, pull out the latest project and putz around. Sooo fun. (I mean, I still do that when he's here, too...lol). It's just a little different - I love to be alone. Odd, yes. =) I like to play my girly tunes loud and sing to myself and spread ironing boards and papers all over.

Today, my morning has been full of rich Colombian (thank you! ;)..)coffee, a new card design that's about to be printed, a trip to the library for some home decorating magazines - need them as inspo for some paper I need to draw today...(he he...sssh.) It's for a super-secret place, right now...he he. I have a bank appointment, but that's the only necessary evil today. I am going to draw some earring designs. I am going to play with shrink plastic. I am listening to some fab new songs I found - "Where I Stood" by Missy Higgins, "Sunset and Car Crashes" by The Spill Canvas, and some old stand-bys: The Sad Little Stars and City and Colour's "Hello, I'm in Delaware." (And those who asked about the song playing here, scroll to the veeeery bottom of the blog - "Samson" by Regina Spektor is the first must listen-to-it-over-and-over tune.)

Oh! And we watched "Rendition" last night - Love me some Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese. Is he a sexy analyst, or what? lol...anyway, the movie was great, but it was seriously disturbing that this 'rendition' law actually even exists in the USA - pretty much, the US government can deport and make people they suspect with no actual evidence disappear from the face of the earth if suspected of terrorist related activity. They literally delete records of people and take their identification and ship them off to underground torture prisons around Europe for interrogation. Disturbing. We watched a documentary that was also on the dvd, and I just can't believe it; the guy who implemented the program says that they do not condone torture, but what they need done can not legally done on United States soil - totally contradictory. Argh! Makes me so mad...I'm so happy I live in Canada!!

Anyway, sorry to leave you on that note! lol...go listen to some Missy Higgins, I promise it will make you smile...=) Happy weekend - enjoying sunshine, crafting, hugging your family..whatever you may be doing! Blog winner announced tomorrow - I'm waiting til Paislee announces, but I know who won! he he....Happy day!

I totally get mad too about that law! And about the US being the most contradicting country in the world... Land of the free - yeah right! I´m happy to be in Sweden! Have a nice day! (night over here..!)

Hello Michelle. I had a crafty day yesterday as well. And I looooooved it. Trying to learn how to draw, stitch, do felt stuff, scrap, and read crafty books and looking at magazines for inspiration also! whoaw! How fun is all that? Anyway I also wanted to point out that Colombian is spelled c-O, not c-U. lol. I see this mistake a lot but wanted to point it out to you. (I'm sorry, Can't help that my colombian genes tend to dominate me sometimes, lol...)

That sounds like a wonderful day!! How do you keep up with doing so many different hobbies - I have a "try this" list a mile long but it seems like I never get to do any of them!

I still haven't seen Rendition..... sounds like something that would make me rant and rave about the gov't, lol... may not be such a good idea!

Wow, that doesn't surprise me about the US as all. It is really quite sad. On a happier note, yay for having a crafty productive day. Wish I could have been working on some fun stuff. I was running around like a crazy chicken with me head cut off. Looking forward to all the lovelies.
