10-15 JanuaryI'm kinda excited about the paper-dolls; the nerdiness and and childishness of it really appeals to me. And the stats... monitoring my handmade wardrobe, what I am wearing, how I'm wearing it and with what frequency... omg; the latent geek emerges. Of course there are so many more important things in life to be monitored. But this blog has never pretended to be particularly d and m. Just the trivia, my friends, just the trivia. The fun stuff :)
Thank you for the compliments on my drawing, but seriously, y'know I really wasn't kidding when I said my drawing skills are not all that crash-hot. My paper dolls only look good because of the Fashionary .... you see, the figures on each page are already drawn in for you, naked, in very faint red dots. All you have to do is draw in your clothes. The line drawings on pattern envelopes can be quite helpful for that bit. Then you just dot-to-dot draw in the rest. And then colour in. Yeah. Everyone's opinion of my drawing skills is dropping dramatically, right?
I bought my Fashionary, and also one for Cassie here. And btw, this is not an endorsement; I received no freebies and I paid full price for both :)
It's been super humid and muggy here lately, a by-product of tropical cyclone Narelle off the coast. The weather girl informed us that we reached our minimum of 27C in the middle of last night and then the temperature started rising and was over 30C by 2am! Sooo hot! The rest of today was hideous, as you can imagine!
It's been a while since I wore these sandals and I love the brightness of the turquoise and aqua set off against the sludginess of my eggplant purply brown dress. This photo is re-visiting how I sometimes used to try to take somewhat arty outfit photos; looking down from high at my toes, trying to get all the colours and textures and the gist of the thing in one shot.
