Listening to: the Cave by Mumford & Sons.
Quote love: "Adventure is out there!" from UP.
This weekend I:
Painted) Last year I dug up two old canvases I had painted years ago, and reused them, painting quotes on both of the canvases. (I wrote about it here, if you want the whole story.) Yesterday I took a canvas my best friend had given to my sister, who, in turn, gave it to me. Previously, it had a painting of a few dolphins and other undersea creatures. It was beautiful, in its own way, but not what I wanted. And eventually, I decided to paint the same picture Ellie paints in UP. It's the house she and Carl live in, sitting at the top of Paradise Falls, a painted promise that they would go there one day.
Last night my beautiful sister Anna (she's in three of the above pictures, and it's a common mistake to think I'm her) and Ali, my best friend, helped me paint Paradise Falls on the old canvas. It looks amazing.
Knotted) You know those friendship bracelets? The round ones? We made those. We made them with rainbow embroidery thread, while we watched Prince Caspian.
Pictured) I took pictures of two of my lovely sisters. They're so photogenic...the photos turn out well no matter what! (by the way, if you missed the photo blog last time I linked to it, here you go: anewkindofstory.blogspot.com)
What have you done this weekend?
