kate5kiwis: The Big Weekend


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

The Big Weekend

while Charlie and his Daddy
went on a boyz weekend - doin' freaky boyz stuff -
uuurgh uuuurgh -
the rest of us stayed home for a beachy day
and a Charlie's Angels fest -
and i wrote my second ethics assignment
until the wee wee wee small hours.
well - i mostly stayed up that late because
i find it hard to sleep
Bulldog's heartbeat next to mine.

today i started finding my mojo for my art journal -
oh how i love food colouring.
it's supposed to turn out like an altered book -
with *ahem* all of our *ahem* paintings in it.

well, as we all know,
i am NOT the scrapbooking queen,
so this is as far as i've got -
(recognise that piltdown man photo? c'est moi)
it's the front cover -
which still needs a little *jhushj* -
some fancy paper and some string.
or some glue would be a good start.
i followed this tutorial
to use up some of the overflowing
plastic shopping bags that've been
accumulating in my pantry -
to back the letters on.
because i'm insisting on doing
this project on the cheep cheep.

the tute shows ya how to make
a fabulous recycled bag.
and they use waxed paper to iron on, but i used
"white newspaper" and it worked fine.
try it, you'll love it.
you can even use up all your spare
seat belts for the bag straps.
i know. g-r-e-e-n.

so yesterday - i "Collected Images".
that's an Art Phrase, don'tcha know?
tomorrow i need to rush the drawings and paintings then.
i think i'll be needing Miracle Max.

"Charlie's Angels fest" - are we talking the Farah Fawcett year or the Cheryl Ladd era? I definitely prefer the latter!

Awesome, it's all coming together nicely. And if it didn't need a rush in the final moments, then it wouldn't be a true school project. Some of my best work is done seconds-before-due! Beautiful beachy day. It's very... autumnal... here (read: Damn cold) We've had to reroute the Easter camping trip into an Easter stay-in-a-house trip. Too cold to be digging your own toilets, much less using them.

Ah the weather still looks good with you too!

I don't envy you the late nights doing work though. I guess I'll be back to some of that when I return to the UK. Something I've not missed at all.

Sweet that you can't sleep when Bulldog is not around. I love to sleep alone - mostly cos I sleep like a starfish so it's none too pleasant for anyone who happens to be in the bed at the same time!!

Coolio, Katie! Hey, when you're done with Miracle Max, can you send him over my way?
