It is that time of the month (no, not that time of the month, god) where we kick off with some nice things. Just some good, wholesome, enjoyable, and perhaps inspirational things because it’s a nice way to start a new month. Allon-sy!
- First, let’s start with this incredible art work by Agnes Cecile. As I watched one of the videos of her making a piece, I was struck by an acute sense of WHAT THE HELL HAVE I DONE WITH MY LIFE I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING BLARGHRGIREUE. So, enjoy!
- A collection of some of Roald Dahl’s most heartwarming quotes. I particularly like the one from Fantastic Mr Fox and the one from James and the Giant Peach.
- I loved these illustrations by Philippa Rice so much, I bought the artist’s book minutes after reading that post.
- Knitted mermaid tail blanket. As if I need to say more. Click that link, do it!
- This song has been on repeat in my SoundCloud playlist lately. It reminds me of warm hazy nights in the summer.
- This lovely post by Naomi over at naomi loves about a gathering of friends getting together to make snail mail things. Hopefully I can tag along next time! Do you like snail mail? I do, but I don’t use it very often at all. Maybe 2016 can be the year of snail mail.
- Mmmmm gingerbread biccies…so good. I haven’t made these before but I might just bake a few batches for the people I work with. If they last long enough to make it out of the kitchen.
- And finally, what better way to finish off than with a festive post about eco-friendly ways to wrap gifts. I love the idea of using tea towels or scarves as wrappings. Not so sure about yoghurt containers though…
Dare I ask how you’re feeling about it being December? The last month of the year! I am planning on writing more about how the year 2015 has treated me and I it, but I will say that I am a little unsure of how we got here so quickly. I know I was talking about how fast the months were flying by in September (possibly earlier…) but I’ve honestly blinked and am now looking down the barrel at 2016. But I’m okay with it, strangely. What are you looking forward to this month? Do you celebrate these holidays?
