Our senses tell a story. I've committed to recording my 5 senses for the past week to explore my sensory world. I challenge you to do the same. If you choose to do so, just blog your 5 senses every Sunday & let me know, I'd love to read them.
I got a great comment on my sense-ational Sunday last week - Crystal said "I bet it really makes you appreciate your surroundings!" That comment stuck with me and I realized it really has. I am conscious of anything sensory that "creates a memory" during the week. Before I was primarily focused on what I saw and what I heard, but paying more attention to all my 5 senses has made me a better scrapbooker.
Also before I started, I wanted to give a shout out to Jen (Moody)
, Jen (Tillman)
who have regularly been doing Sense-ational Sunday posts with me. I'm going to start a section in my sidebar for Sense-ational Sunday posters, so let me know if you're up for the challenge & I'll add you to my links!
Meg again this weekend. She had classes to kit up at Luxe this weekend which means she come over & spent the night again. She has a new haircut (which she says has already grown out way too much) and these jeans. These are her favorite
new pants. While her parents were out of town she ripped and bleached them herself out of the closet (oh, I remember those days).
I've had Finger 11's song Paralyzer
stuck in my head this week (which is so unlike what I usually like, I'm at a loss). I've also started listening to Kidd Kraddick
on the way to work ever since Ashley's
husband Ben became their webmaster. It's a long story...but they've gotten me listening to Freddy. Click here to read all about Freddy & his saga
. Can you say young Billy Joel? Sweet...
, yum. Tastes like springtime. It's a light wine made from Orange Muscat grape juice just on the verge — halfway between wine and grape juice. The alcohol is only 4% (most wines are at least 12%) - so it's just my speed and it doesn't make me sleepy or goofy. It's really peachy with melon undertones and is awesome with fresh fruit.
The computer keyboard. Oof, I've been on the computer a lot lately. I've had lots of creative time, but it's been in illustrator building web components for work or working on button designs for ManHandled
. I'm aching to touch paper & paint but there just hasn't been time. The picture? I thought it would be funny to take a picture of me typing & while I was playing with my camera settings I took this...and, yes, I do have like a zillion flower rings now. What can I say? I blame Etsy
I SMELL:Lemony Flutter
. This stuff smells and is amazing
- and a little goes such a long way! Stacy
originally told me about it when we were out on a "teacher field trip" at ScrapBowl and I've made sure I've had some ever since. My skin is so dry & this stuff is great for rehydrating my scar without getting all slimy (like the vitamin E oil) - so it's been Lemony Flutter by day & the E oil at night.
