One of the reasons I write this blog is to get to know other bloggers. I love reading about artists and crafters and their projects but I also lovelove getting to know people outside of what drives them on their blogs and in their businesses. That's one of the reasons I include Life Lately or Life is Good posts or the like. Hopefully you get to know me on a level beyond "ohmygosh--I pinned microwaved eggs and then microwaved my own", you know?
Yesterday we went skiing with friends. Well, I ski, Leif snowboards. This was a big deal because it was the first time we'd been in TWO years since my main squeeze of a husband broke his tailbone in Montana. We managed beautifully! The day couldn't have been better. I swear, every time I'm on the slopes I gush that "This was the best day skiing EVER!" and I did that again yesterday. Either I'm not too particular, or every day skiing is the best, or they truly do get better and better.
Upstairs is my craft space and I usually do my 9-5 work downstairs where I can be near Leif when he's home and let the little Scotch dog out (and in-and out-and in again) but sometimes I find myself up in my artsy/craftsy space during the work day. The light is different and the vibe is different and I feel really at peace up there. I love having my packed happiness/inspiration boards around me when I work too. These are some of the things in that space that I delighted in this week.
Birchbox this year. Weird? For me, yes a little bit. I always think I need to work on the girly side of me because working remotely and not having to leave the house for work means I have to make a little more effort to look cute when I do get out. Not kidding! For some people it's a no-brainer. For me, not so much, so I decided to indulge a little and try new products and up the ante a little. I got my first box this week.
OPI collections last weekend . . . ? Girlfriends, I am making progress! How's life been for you lately?
