i love this


Noell's life philosophy:

I’m a minimalist. I don’t need lots of stuff. All I need is good friends, good food, good music, good sex, and a way to be creative. Everything else is bullsh$t.

day 3

so inspired by Alice in Wonderland right now
I have gone down the internet hole...

I have fallen head over heals for Su Blackwell.
Her book sculptures and installations are out of this world!

fluff me

I am loving Oxygen's Jersey Couture show and their fluff me tips. I took their advice and got this compact mirror at Z Gallery a few weeks back. 

Go you, go you, go you, go you, go you!

Defying Gravity

"Every thought is a seed.  If you plant crab apples, don't count on harvesting Golden Delicious." -Bill Meyer (baseball manager,coach)

I don't like when people place judgement on others
I don't like when I judge others either
Today I am having a hard time keeping my mouth shut
Today I am having a hard time keeping my hands away from the keyboard
and expressing exactly how I feel
Today I am having a hard time keeping negative thoughts out of my head
oh the struggle
to speak your mind or not to speak your mind!
Reminds me of the lyrics of "Defying Gravity" from Wicked:

Elphaba - why couldn't you have stayed calm for once,

instead of flying off the handle!
I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy now
I hope you're happy how you
Hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you're clever

I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy too
I hope you're proud how you
Would grovel in submission
To feed your own ambition

I love this song

App Love

On my way to/from work
I have started listening to the Paperclipping Podcast
I like it so much I don't mind the long commute (so far!)
Today they reviewed a number of iPhone apps
I have fallen in love with the Plastic Bullet for iPhone app
it's been love at first sight
I really like what it does to my iPhone pictures
considering that they were never that great to begin with (no 4g here)
I think the pictues look so cool
looking at them makes me happy
I really, really like the old fashion look
I have a crush
wonder how long it will last...

"I get up every single day and I do my very best with what I am and what I have"

I almost cried when I got to 17:50
I want to remind myself of this, every single day!
I can relate to everything she said

like this:
"you have trouble seeing life as a journey
and you are more likely to see it as a series of final exams
that happen every single day that count for your entire grade
that's how I see life"

and this:
"we all long to have there be somebody who has solved life
as if live is some Sudoku puzzle
and there are people who get clues to it and they solve it
and then they spend the rest of their life glidding thru life
we dream of that....but every single person is familiar with failure and disappointment"

and this:
"our lives are journeys that nobody can take for us"

and this:
"Should I have gone to Art school?"
"Should I learn French?"

I am taking Claudine Hellmuth's "@home with Claudine" class.  I made the canvas on Week 1.

I am loving...

  1. mini-albums. It took me forever but I finally took the leap from chronological 12x12 to random mini-albums.
  2. Paula Best stamps. I met her a few weeks back at the Heirloom. Love them all.
  3. Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. Walnut stain is my all time favorite but I am adding more colors to the collection.

What is that?

Oh, I forgot about the sun. I think it's the first time I have seen the sun in all Junuary. That's what Mark and I are calling June; Junuary. Because it's been cold, wet and crappy here in Washington, feels like winter. The sun decided to pop out yesterday afternoon and on my way to my car one of my coworkers asked me "Hey Glynis, what's that?" referring to the sun. This morning the sun was out again and I took this picture on our way to work cause you never know when you will see this rare occurance again. Yes, I am a little upset about this weather and if I hear someone else say "...but the summers are beautiful..." I am going to lose it!

anyhow, I haven't posted much this year. I have meant to, but somehow wanting does not equal doing and January turned into Junuary. Based on this analogy I am still in January therefore I am not doing bad at all.

So far this year I have: traveled to the UK for 3 weeks, joined LA Fitness, got a personal trainer, lost 10 pounds (so far), started gardening, got a tempurpedic bed, finished a few mini books, started looking for a new is busy and good.

now I need to get a sweater because it is cold, Junuary cold in here.
