Recently I've been...

  • We recently found our new favorite place, the Music Box theater. It's a movie theater that was showing The Illusionist (french animated film. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE. It's amazing and so, so inspiring). It had the most romantic decoration and I felt like a 5 year old in a candy store.
  • My squirrels have a new home. A little wooden house that hangs on my knick knack wall!
  • My handsome boyfriend was given a haircut. He then shaved down his beard. Have I mentioned how much I adore this man?
  • I've been playing with clay and creating little creatures. The octopus (shown) has tragically broken in the middle of a pillow fight. No one said adults can't have pillow fights! Another can be made, it's okay.
  • Cheeseburger has been becoming more and more of a lovable cat. She just needed some time to get used to the home but lately, she's been jumping at the sides of my bed, onto my pillows, off onto the floor again, proceeds to run onto the hardwood floor in the hallway (slipping everywhere), and running in my roommates bedroom. Odd cat, I tell ya.
  • Our laundry machine has been out of order for the past few weeks so we went to the laundry mat, where I continued to have fun with my instagram (iPhone app).
  • Our home has been set up cozy so we can hibernate from the snow blizzard of 2011. Living room and bedroom now have candles lit and dim lights. Mmmmm... cozy. The Chicago winds have blown the snow to completely encase my car, which I can see where it WAS from my living room window.
Just in case you missed it, Bird Trouble had a shop update this evening. It includes some of my most favorite items that I've created. I hope you enjoy it!

That is all for tonight! It's time for me to dig myself into a bunch of blankets, watch some cartoons, and possibly do some sketching. If you're in the Midwest like me, be safe the next couple of these crazy snow days! If you're in the sun, don't forget to think about us while we waddle like penguins in this snow.

  1. That movie looks good. Maybe I'll check it out. We live in Oswego, IL and got 14 inches of snow and my little Ford Focus is buried too. What out for those snow drifts!
