My week in pictures

We made color swatches w/ colored pencils in class this week.

I made a snowflake puzzle for our Women's Tea at church. Hand-drawn and hand-cut!
Carlita always deserves a picture. ;)

Once I got it in my head to giveaway some clothes, I had to go ahead and do it! My closet is much happier now that it only has things I actually wear in it!


  1. Yeah for purging your closet! I'm so desperate to do that I may just get rid of stuff right now. I'm at my smallest "self" right now, so if there's something even smaller or something that doesn't work for me now (and didn't work for me while I was nursing), it needs to GO! Thanks for the motivation - keep asking me if I've made time to do it. :)

    1. Yeah I've found over the years, that even if I'm not at my ideal weight at a certain moment in time, getting rid of stuff that you KNOW you haven't worn in years or that you KNOW makes you feel dumpy when you wear them clears space for things that actually work and make you feel good when you put them on.

      I've had friends who keep tons of clothes for "just in case" they get down to their ideal weight again. This usually keeps them in a rut of wearing clothes that don't quite flatter them as they are now, which in turn keeps them constantly in limbo w/ their weight b/c they're constantly feeling wistful about where they're not instead of trying to work with where they're at.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
