Version 2

 

making newly-revamped foldover clutches for upcoming markets and a Rifle Paper Co.-inspired weaving

cooking coconut-oil fried eggs for a late brunch with myself

drinking coffee with a tiny tad of cream

reading My Guantanamo Diary, The Alchemist, A Rope and a Prayer…and many more….

wanting my house to be miraculously cleaned out and totally organized by tomorrow morning & my 2015 taxes gathered and filled out

playing past & current episodes of Outlander, Scandal, Girls & Shameless

wasting time playing on my iPad and phone…so bad

sewing fabric + leather foldover clutches and pouches

wishing for a lot of things to be worked out

enjoying time spent at home this weekend with the windows open and making things on the agenda

waiting for…what AM I waiting for?!

liking the new season of Girls so far – Hannah Horvath is ridiculous. And the Sanrio lover in me wants to visit Shosh’s apartment stat.

loving getting caught up on my projects…and my new haircut

hoping for answers and directions to present themselves to me

marveling at how quickly shit can pile up

needing some everyday shoes that are cute, comfortable, casual

smelling wafts from my coffee mug

wearing lounging pants and a flannel…could not be more comfortable if I tried

following @clementinedaily, @historyphotographed, @smithsonianzoo, @cestlebrie

noticing daffodils popping up everywhere

knowing that I. can. do. it.

thinking about spending the day with one of my favorite people who took the day off to hang with me in Charlottesville tomorrow

bookmarking Whole30/paleo recipes, PSE tutorials, clean plants for the home

opening my new Crafters Box arrival!!!

giggling about the coffee shop photog session from last week’s Girls episode…so hilar

feeling kinda rested, comfortable, and happy to the be in this space again!

feeling overwhelmed and underwhelmed all at the same time.

filling in my most amazing planner to try and keep me on point with custom orders, projects, markets, and travel plans to keep those overwhelming feelings at bay. It’s helping a little, but this planner…omg….

remembering the fun and totally relaxing time spent at the Outer Banks with one of my oldest and dearest friends and her family.

wishing I was still back there

tearing through SO MANY BOOKS! I started Emma: A Modern Retelling while on vacation, after starting and completing The Rosie Project and Everything I Never Told You. Thinking about doing a mini book report post since I’m so crazy about books again.

planning our first Spring Market (see sidebar for flyer) on the farm on June 6th. We’ve added a few more vendors since the Holiday Market and excited about taking it outside to enjoy the warm weather. Let’s hope for no rain!

obsessed with the HBO series Getting On. It is so well-done, well-played, and overall brilliant. I don’t know what it is about it that makes it so worthy of pure infatuation…could be because the first episode was about protecting a turd for a study and then old ladies with their potty mouths…but it is definitely one for a nice binge. So good.

cleaning out so.much.stuff. and want to clean out more.

making space for ‘new’ to come into my life to freshen things up a bit. I’ve written about the before, but sometimes I feel like I am suffocating in my own space. I try to follow rules from books or articles that I have read to make it more streamlined, but I think what works for me is a constant box by the front door for drop-ins. For now, that’s what is working on a daily basis when it’s not my main focus.

buying herbs for our herb spiral we are making outside of the classroom. I need to get some before and after pictures to show – my little students and I are so excited about it and anxious to get it completed.

pre-ordering the new album from my buddy Langhorne Slim & The Law due out in August. New music from favorite artists is always welcome around here.

decorating my “new” bedroom upstairs with a new rug, a new window shelf for plants (and a fan), and selectively chosen items for the walls. I’m trying to decide if I want to do a large gallery on one wall or prints/hangings dispersed throughout the room. I’m leaning more towards a gallery…thoughts?
