Art Journal Monday- How Not to Chase the Storm

Lay your head down, fables and coffee paper ships and coke bottles Lay your head down in my arms, art journal page How not to chase the storm, fables and coffee Art journals and mason jars Paper ships, fables and coffee I will not submit to- art journal page To the idea of who I should/should not be Pages and paper ships Right round lyrics on journal page You Spin my Head- art journal page Spin my head right round, art journal pages

Has anyone started decorating for the holiday season yet? Turkey day is almost upon us folks here in the USA and while i’m not actually doing anything for the day except sleeping in, I feel the impending pressure to decorate and buy more presents than is economically advisable coming on. I also managed to somehow to land a new day job that i’m pretty fantastically excited about (let me just tell you though, doing a final interview running on 3 hours of sleep is NOT advisable, no matter how well it worked for me) which means i’ll be having to brave the shopping malls for sensible office shoes and I don’t know, professional trousers of some kind. Is there a section in the clothing store aimed at people who feel most comfortable in pj’s and fuzzy slippers?

My minds been in flux all month it seems, and while i’ve given up on the idea of regaining a new sleeping pattern till after November is well and over, I remain thankful for ink stains on my forearms, the patience of friends and the kindness of near-strangers. And coffee, of course. Always coffee, but surprisingly, also tea.

Music on repeat this past week:
Here we go again– Milkman
Cameras– Matt & Kim
Combatiente– Mana
Para Alcanzarte – Sin Bandera
Kajra Re– Aishawarya Rai ( playback singer Alisha Chinai )
Right Round– Flo Rida
Landfill– Daughter
With or Without You– U2

And on that note, if anyone has any good classical or mostly instrumental music to recommend, please do. I’m going to finally start watercoloring this next week (swear to gods it’s going to happen…)  and while i’ve got a good playlist going, suggestions are always welcome. Barring that, Bollywood music is always welcome as well.
