Oh My!

Have I been busy or what? I finished my little custom order this morning and actually finished my goal for the day on my huge crayon roll order! I am really excited about that because it means I might be able to get a little ahead. My goal was to finish all 16 monster rolls in 2 weeks and I do believe I could finish a day early. I had forgotten how time consuming they are to make when I made the 2 week deadline but found that it would be exactly the right amount of time. I can get the last 8 pinned together today and, if not tonight, be able to sew them tomorrow thus finishing 1 day early, YAY! I am really excited about this project, not just because of the size of the order. It gave me some serious motivation to hit the sewing machine again. After having had about 2-3 months without creating anything new, it pushed me to start again and I am looking forward to working on some fun new projects now.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
