Around Here: November 2018

Hello, friends!  Here's a little bit about life right now:

What are you listening to?

Literally -- at this very moment of writing this blog post -- I've got my Pandora classical music station blasting.  I find that I can't listen to music with words when I'm writing.  It creates a conflict in my brain and I stop being able to think.

What are you wearing?

This coat. 

And I'm looking really smug in the photo because I moved the buttons all by myself instead of taking it to a tailor.  Me and my sewing machine are definitely becoming better and better friends!

What have you bought?

Technically, I didn't buy it. Steve bought it for me.  But I am love with this big wool shawl that he bought me when we were in Ireland!

What are you reading?

I finally finished The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing.  I've been reading it for MONTHS.  It's a really good book, but it contains a lot of tragedy and I kept having to put it down because it was upsetting me -- especially towards the end.  When I finally finished the book, I was in a public waiting room.  And I cried.  It was awkward.  Good writing can really move you.

Who are you stalking...er, admiring from afar?

Lately I've really been into Sarah Golden.  Here's a peek at some of her work:

There's a kind of effortless-ness about her work that I like so much.  It's quirky and colorful and I even find the flat-ness of her work deeply appealing. 

So, there you have it!  That's the scoop on life around here at the moment.  If you'd like more behind-the-scenes real life fun, you can always check out my vlog.  I post a new vlog to my YouTube channel every Wednesday!  This is the most recent vlog:
