Thankful




Wanna make a Thanksgiving tree?
Click, print, cut, write, glue. . .voila! 
Gratitude galore!

Of course I'm thankful for so many other things (peanut butter jumps to mind),
but this motley crew is at the top of my list.

How about you? 
What are you especially grateful for this year?

I think I'm the most grateful for the love and support shown to me by my family, friends, and even strangers, in this ridiculously challenging year. Every word of encouragement, every shared story, every act of comfort. 
Thank you.

Moons, Socks, and Things with Wings

In between bouts of pounding my head against this computer screen (learning stuff is proving to be more challenging than I imagined),  I managed to do the kind of thing I'm actually good at.
Aislynn here insisted upon a make-over. She wanted wings. (And really, who could blame her?) 
Here she is holding court. She's MUCH bigger than my usual fare, so the other goodies have no choice but to look up to her.
  
Emerald, the anthropomorphic pine tree, is generally unimpressed.
 Celeste and Harvey are just plain cute. . .
 . . . as is Honey Bee. She's a happy sort, but she promises to like you even if you're having a bad day/week/year.
Olivander, Oliver, and Olivia don't care one way or the other.
 However Percival, Oxford, and Princeton, are always cheering for your success. . .
. . .while Edgar and Allen have no qualms about laughing when you trip.
And this sweet oddity is Skellyfly. She's my favorite this week. I love her strange little buggy arm/legs.
And now I must return to things that are far less fun. Computery-numbery-mathy-type things. I bought myself some stripey socks though, as a reward for my perseverance. It's scientifically proven that striped socks make everything just a little more fun.

Hope you're all having a stripey-socks kind of day!

And speaking of learning something new. . .

I get to take a very cool class, and I got a scholarship! That's right, I'm officially a collage student once again. The class only meets once a month, but I get a student ID and stuff. Hey, discounted movies! And school supplies! Totally gotta get myself a cool backpack. . . Anyway, this is the class (the one on the left).
I'm gonna learn what the heck I'm doing here. At least that's the goal. And maybe I'll make some friends while I'm at it. Oh no, what if I'm the weird kid that eats her lunch alone behind the bleachers?? Shut up, brain. But I digress. As organized as I am when it comes to my creative goings-on, I'm equally as unorganized when it comes to business stuff. Numbers make me twitchy, paperwork causes hives. I gotta work on that. In the not-too-distant past I just handed all financial things over to my former partner, trusting that he knew what he was doing. Turns out, he really really really didn't. I'm learning that I can trust myself, and am more capable than I ever imagined. So yay for silver linings. Here I go, putting one foot in front of the other, trusting that the journey will lead to beautiful destinations.
In the meantime, you can find me behind the bleachers.
