What’s Your Superhero Look Like?

Thursdays are the day my mom, sister and I attempt to get together for crafting (and by crafting, I mean “art journaling” like this blogger). We’ve successfully managed to do this two out of the three times we’ve planned for it, which seems to be a good trend. I’m a total dork who takes the whole idea way too far, and so of course this past Thursday I showed up with an established prompt for the night, as well as some words and phrases I printed out for inspiration. I love my family, and I love how much they totally got into the whole thing. My mom and my sister both took the prompt and ran with it in completely opposite directions from each other, and from me. It was awesome!

What does your superhero look like?

I wasn’t too serious about it, and just had fun with the magazines we were cutting up. Have I told you guys that’s one of my favorite faux-arty-thing to do? It’s true. I love buying magazines and then cutting them up into itty bitty pieces without even considering reading them. I mean, I read the titles, but just to see if I want to use part of it for a project. My collection is stored in an old card box and has spilled way out into a big jar and several baggies.

Oh, also, I wore clothes. I’m getting back into my rhythm with clothes. I liked this particular ensemble a bit, although I’m still iffy about adding in the gray tights. Those shoes, though! Look at my shoes! Would you like to know how much they cost me? I’m not one for the bragging and money talk, no not at all, but they were $6 at Target. Massive clearance. It was exciting.

Shirt: Romy | Dress: Macys | Tights: gift | Shoes: Target | Necklace: Thrifted

What kinds of things do you like to do with your families? Any good suggestions for next week’s prompt?

Sequins: Sunday Musings

This post is later than intended. One of the rattas fell of their play area (which is the top of our heater, which is turned off and unplugged), and is now hiding inside the heater. It’s been an interesting day so far >.> That being said, here’s what has my attention lately…

This challenge has been a ton of fun, and I’ve been horrible at keeping up with it. Sundays are turning into my catch-up days. I’m still about a week behind, but I figure it doesn’t really matter, since I’m digging the prompts. Here’s one I worked on today

I’ve been way way way sporadic in my reading, which is super unusual for me. Usually I’m a two-books-a-month kind of girl, but lately I can’t focus as well. I have been reading this book, though, which is holding my attention. Ready for me to reveal my true depth in nerdom?

Which leads me to my new favorite website, PopMatters and also the tv show I’ve been watching on Netflix whenever I’m working on art projects

Buffy is a classic, and I love it. I love it so much. Even Monsieur is getting into the show as I’ve been rewatching it, which is funny, since he’s not a big fan of most of what I watch (and by most of what I watch, I really mean I watch pretty much nothing at all and he likes most of it).

Oh and slightly off topic? I think Stripes & I would look pretty bitchin’ wearing this necklace as our BFF necklace

One of my favorite bloggers, Kaylah from The Dainty Squid, is doing a a super cool giveaway. That I want to win. Which is why I’m getting myself an extra chance to win by sharing it with you here. See the giveaway? See how cool it is?

Oh and I’ll do a full post about it later, but just as a sneak peek, I had a blast on Saturday with the Carpenter (from our Tea Party). We took our cameras to the best spot in our town for a fun photo shoot.

Hope everyone else is having a good Sunday! Wish me luck wrangling my silly goose of a ratta.
