It's Christmas!

I haven't been posting much lately but I felt like I should at least wish you all a  MERRY CHRISTMAS! This month has been crazy busy with crafty projects and procrastination! A delightful, stressful whirl wind of a month! 

List of thoughts as of late: 
1- I've been thinking a lot about the meaning of Christmas. It saddens me that it's been twisted into commercialized stress of buying stuff for others. And not magical moments that it should be. 
2- This winter snow has been oddly kind to me this season. It's chilly and wet but I haven't fallen! I call that a win! 
3- I've been contemplating my new years resolutions lately. I'm quite excited about a new year and fresh steps to be had! The promise of tomorrow often makes today sufferable. 
4- My skin has been mad at me lately. Which is completely fair. Stress plus all the crap I've been eating, it was only a matter of time before the evidence popped up on my face. 
5- I've been working on the sketchbook for my dad for Christmas. It's been a long time since I was this frustrated with a project. Most of the time there's a little bit of a learning curve but my vision comes together by the end. But this time I've been flip flopping all over the place. It's Christmas and I'm still not sure how it's going to turn out. I'll have to share my results later! It's been humbling to say the least! 

I hope you all have a wonderful wintery season! Embrace the people, moments and feelings that get presented before you. Search and find happiness and peace! Thank you for reading my rants and randomness. I adore this blog as an outlet for crap that leaks from my being. I especially adore the few readers I have. I often feel like the luckiest odd ball around! 


November Art Journal

I'm very behind on posting my art journal photos, but better late than never right? I've been delightfully engulfed in Christmas projects and home made gifties that I've let my blog get behind. Yet again! On the bright side I'm feeling oddly crafty and getting back into my crafty groove. Despite the snow, anxiety and chaos this month has given me I'm feeling more like my creative self again! Which hopefully means I'll get better at blogging regularly soonish! Until then I'm just going to post when I can and find time! 

Song and Doodle #54

This weeks song and doodle is by the wonderful Noah Gundersen. He's weaved his way in and out of my Spotify playlists for a little while now. His music is very solid and you always know what to expect from him. Which in a way knocks him down on the rungs of "most played artist". Some it just starts to sound all the same. He definitely redeems himself by having heart wrenching lyrics. There is something very relateable about his songs. I'm head over heels for the song First Defeat. Its simple and straight forward, you know the story he's trying to tell.
It's the little things, that convince me to stay
It's your fingertips, and the music they play
To the beat of my heart, and the rhythm our bodies make
