a few things on Friday 1.18.13

1. Yesterday I took the time to organize my studio (aka my area of the kitchen). My arts and crafts had taken over. It was so nice to get rid of things I don't need. Washi tape and felt were not included. You can never have too much of those.

2. I want to chop my hair off. I'm pretty sure it should be something like this.

3. The boys received watercolor paints in their stockings for Christmas. Jack really loves it. He can sit for a very long time and paint. He's very meticulous. It's so sweet to watch him. It also makes me want to learn how to use watercolors. I think I will.

4. I'm really loving these. I gave a friend a pair and I think it's time I got a pair or two for myself.

5. For the past few days we have had very warm weather. I'm talking turn on the A/C. And to be honest, I was so happy for it to get cold again yesterday. Now if only it would snow.

6. I have yet to see this. Have you? Mr. Pen & Paint and I are talking about making it a date this weekend.

7. I am loving these colors. I already have two that are similar, I am just trying to find a place to put a third :)

8. I'm getting some of these to string across my mantel. I usually don't decorate for Valentine's Day, but they are too sweet to pass up.

9. I haven't really made any New Year's resolutions or chosen a "word for the year". I think I'm just going to keep this quote as my theme for the year and go with it.

10. I have finally signed up for Audible and I'm reading this book. Or at least listening to it. I'm so thankful for audio books. Now I can draw and "read" at the same time.

What's new with you?


  1. Oh man, please don't tempt me with cutting my hair!!! I've been growing it out for over a year, but I'm getting slightly annoyed with it. I absolutely love that haircut that you linked to!

    1. I have been growing mine out for 2 years. I said I'd never cut it again. Now it's driving me bonkers!!!! I have an appointment scheduled in a few weeks. I'm pretty sure by then I'll have mustered up the courage to go through with it ;-) we'll see!

  2. love using a quote as the theme for the year! great choice!

  3. love the hair! you'd rock that! watercolors are beautiful. still learning my way with them. wish we lived close, we could both sign up for a class. i think that's what i should've done. but i'm a born tinkerer. i tinker my way through things. happy 2013!!!!!!!!

  4. you'd Rock that hair cut. Those earrings are amazing and I need to find someone to go see that movie with me.

  5. Lindsay,

    I grow my hair out two years at a time so I can donate it. I say GO FOR IT! :)

    The temperature drop after our days in the 70s was quite a shock to the system for me yesterday. I don't think we're going to see any snow out of it though. :( My pups like to sled down our back hill with us so I was hoping we'd have just enough for that activity!

    Have a great day!

  6. i love all of your links, Lindsay and i think that hair cut would be adorable on you!! i'm debating on that movie, too... Happy Friday!!

  7. I think I'm supposed to go see that with my sister...she has a tendency to be forgetful though.
    LOVE that haircut. If you really want to cut it, go for it. It'll grow back if you decide you miss your longer hair!

  8. 1. do NOT cut your HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so shiny & BEAUTIFUL! You have been growing it out for soooo long!!
