Happy Holidays!

I have been making things to my heart’s content but unfortunately I can’t share them until all gifts have been given! No spoilers here. So I’ll leave you with this and I’ll be back in the New Year!

Our Charlie Brown Tree. John and I have been collecting yearly ornaments, this year we still have to pick one. One is still at his parents home in New Jersey so that left just one ornament for our tree! We bought some fillers at Walgreens and will add this year’s before the season is over, but for now Baruchatar is star of the show. (Baruchatar is the dinosaur we bought at the AMNH last year. He is inexplicably sporting a glitter yarmulke. John is good at coming up with fitting names for things.)

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy New Year, and Happy Festivus for the rest of us! If I left anyone out, consider yourself well-wished.

See you in 2012!

Temporary Art Installation

My apartment is still too fresh – too many things on the floor leaning against the walls, too many empty nails from the past tenants. I’m feeling kind of under the weather today so I decided to stay home and make some holes in the wall of my own.

These are just some things I’ve had hanging in past apartments: a warhol poster from college, a ascii snoopy from “Prudential’s Roseland Office, 1974” picked up at a flea market, the approval matrix from New York magazine in which I am “lowbrow and despicable”, a few photos including one of my grandmother in her prime, sent to my grandfather during WWII. A lot of little things that mean a lot to me! I know I’ll likely rearrange, or, you know, frame things instead of hanging things with paper clips. I hear adults frame their art?

Maybe one day.

Good evening Upper East Siders

I’m moving to the east side! Bye bye C train. 6 train, you and I are gonna be fast friends. Stay tuned for apartment pictures and photo documentation and tutorials of the many DIY projects I’m sure to tackle. Maybe some of them will work! Maybe some of them will fail hilariously! Only time will tell, friends.

Until then, “you know you love me. xoxo…” – gossip girl
