I bought a bunch of plaques over the winter because I thought I would make hanging loveliness for people for Christmas. I never got around to it, but now I have all these things I can make for my wall! One thing I made is this cat thing with actual yarn ball, inspired by Justin's roommate's vintage art. Here's picture of the original, and my version of the cat thing next to my favorite green shoes.
The other night, I helped Justin's roommate Nick with a V-day present for a lady and it is the sweetest thing ever! He saved up the ends of guitar strings for years, and I strung them together and added a clasp. It is brilliant. Then we ate some garlicy pasta and watched Mr. Show and went to bed. The best.
