Happy Year of the Cow!

Andy was incredibly thoughtful and generous, as always; getting me a candy-coated Holga camera, a smattering of lovely vinyl toys, and Handi-snacks in my stocking.

Aiko & Yuriko sent me an amazing Shibuya 109 eco bag filled with magazines and flyers.
It was so generous; they included hakama + furisode kimono catalogs.

Noelle recently got me into the Mighty Boosh. If you haven't seen it and Little Britain or League of Gentlemen are your thing - you must check it out! As a birthday gift I made her these shoes, which are based on the opening title sequence.

Andy and I went to her birthday party this week. Theme: Dress Like Noelle, which I have to say was pretty boss since she's way stylish. I went as Mod as I could.

Every year we all say "I can't believe it's already a new year" and I'm just as guilty of that cliche'. It feels like only last week Andy and I were listening to Iggy Pop while driving 1300 miles to Iowa.

The snow outside is really lovely, and I'm currently positioning my easel in front of the windows.


it's a new day!

PS Candy

Every year Andy and I make something ridiculous out of Reese's for my mom at Christmas.
This year it was Dorothy's house and the two little candy canes are the witch's stockings ...

  2. hahaha, i love that thing with the reeses.XDDD i'm guilty of that cliche too, i dunno, it's just like...mmm, you feel fresh with all the new year's like a chance to make another year full of craziness without the aweful memories hunting you from previous years.
