PANDAS AND AMPERSANDS

AmpersandWallArt-01.jpg

Hiya!

I hope you all had a great week! Here are some things I'm into this week. Let me know what you think and how your week went. 

1. Excellent article about the history of the ampersand. If you are into that sort of thing. I totally am. 

2. Right now I am reading: A portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce I am enjoying it very much so far. I am on an Irish trend at the moment. The last book I read was Angela's Ashes: A Memoir by Frank McCourt which was so amazing I want to read his second book 'Tis.

3. This panda tumbling video is so ridiculously cute. Enjoy!

Hiya!

I hope you all had a great week! Here are some things I'm into this week. Let me know what you think and how your week went. 

1. This time I sent Reed, Captain Phasma's Helmet and the phrase "On my Command..." How amazing is this? I LOVE IT! I hope he enjoys doing these as much as I do. 

2. The Drawfee Channel makes me laugh. Please check it out. 

3. You can now subscribe to my blog and get all the news, updates and discounts. If you are on a tablet or a computer you should see a box to the right of this post. If you are on your phone you should see a pop up box. I hope you decide to do it. So far I have 5 subscribers, 2 of which are me. It's an exclusive club. lol!

4. I have been spending a lot of time learning about marketing, a topic I know pretty much nothing about. I am trying to implement all that I have learned. I assume it will take some time to notice anything different. So I will just keep plugging away. 

5. If you like cat videos I am pretty sure you will like this one. I am not exactly sure why this is entertaining. It just is. 

Give me a comment below. I would love to know what you think. Have a great day!

SOME STUFF I'M INTO THIS WEEK 4

Hiya,

I hope you all had a great week! Here are some things I'm into this week. Let me know what you think and how your week went. 

1. Reed sent me the below picture. I am a bit afraid to respond. He told me he likes the dark side because they have more power. I am on the light side. What if this is the exact moment that our relationship takes a pivotal shift and doesn't recover. What if this tears our whole family apart? What should I do?

2. Hello Autumn even though it doesn't feel like autumn, it is 80 degrees. 

3. Very interesting article. Would love to hear your thoughts. 

4. For all my type loving peeps out there. This video will have an impact. 

I hope you all have a fantastic week! 

SOME STUFF I'M INTO THIS WEEK 3

Hiya,

I hope you all had a great week! Mine was fantastic! Here are some things I'm into this week. Let me know what you think and how your week went. 

1. I have been wanting to do a collaborative art project with Reed for a long time, but I was waiting for the right moment. Last week I sent him a drawing of Boba Fett's helmet (He loves Star Wars) and the words "The Sarlacc pit is..." and asked him to finish it and mail it back to me. I was so excited thinking about what he was going to do and he did not disappoint. What I received in the mail was pure magic! He even decorated the envelope with lightsabers. Stay tuned for next week's character.

2. Chris: The girlfriend of my friend at work found out there are puppies available for the breed of dog she wants. 

Me: What breed?

Chris: Bohemian Bavarian Witch Dog

Me: hahahaha!

Chris: It's a large breed so he needs a hatch back car. 

3. If you love shapes and/or ballet you will like this video

4. Fun arrows

I hope you all have a fantastic week! 

SOME STUFF I'M INTO THIS WEEK 2

Hiya!

I hope you all had a great week! Here are some things I'm into this week. Let me know what you think and how your week went. 

I just started reading Angela's Ashes. I am really enjoying his writing style but this book is so sad. 

If you love baking, this is the website for you. I have made a few of Smitten Kitchen's recipes and they are fantastic. 

I think Holly Exley is such an amazing artist. I could watch her speed paint all day long. Please check her out. 

The above picture.

I hope you all have a fantastic week! 

SOME STUFF I'M INTO THIS WEEK 1

AnimalLoverWallArt-03.jpg

Hiya!

It was pointed out to me earlier this week that my blog isn't blogy enough so I am going to try some new things. Please let me know what you think. I would really appreciate your feedbacks. 

This song just makes me feel all the feels, Thank you Nat King Cole. I never get tired of listening to your fabulous voice. 

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins. I am halfway through and I am loving it. 

Let's all use less plastic, ok?

I absolutely love Frannerd's illustrations. They are so cute and quirky. She is also a fellow cat lover. 

What a cool game! Monument Valley really challenges the way you think. The architecture is so beautiful as well. M. C. Escher would approve. 

The above picture.

I hope you all have a fantastic week!
