Gingerbread dough is in the fridge.  We can start rolling zombies in half an hour.  This is very exciting ;)

we just made black and purple popcorn balls for our Christmas tree.  we're considering gingerbread zombies...  R wants gingerbread demons, but i think that might make baby Jesus sad.

. the secret .

so, I'm reading this book the secret, have you heard of it?  i had.  for months, people had been recommending it.  people who seemed to have absolutely nothing in common.  eventually, i gave in and picked it up. I'm about half way through and I'm noticing some things...

to be fair, these are the types of things I'd been noticing sporadically for the past year or so, but for the past few weeks, it's been overwhelming.

more tomorrow [i think]...  it's just been too much. 
but kinda neat all at the same time.

Happy Halloween

Non-conformist, Visionary, and Independent

-1 Abstract, -2 Islamic, -4 Ukiyo-e, -10 Cubist, -4 Impressionist and -2 Renaissance!

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which exists independently of what may appear to others as visual realities. Western had been underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. It allowed the progressive thinking artists to show a different side to the world around them. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a 'new kind of art' which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. Abstract artists created art that was diverse and reflected the social and intellectual turmoil in all areas of Western culture.

People that chose abstract art as their preferred artform tend to be visionsaries. They see things in the world around them and in people that others may miss because they look beyond what is visual only with the eye. They rely on their inner thoughts and feelings in dealing with the world around them instead of on what they are told they should think and feel. They feel freed from the tendancy to be bound by traditional thought and experiences. They look more toward their own ideas and experiences than what they are told by their religious upbringing or from scientific evidence. They tend to like to prove theories themselves instead of relying on the insight or ideas of others. They are not bound by common and mundane, but like to travel and have new experiences. They value intelligence, but they also enjoy a challenge. They can be rather argumentative when they are being forced or feel as if they are being forced to conform.

crafting again

I finally [after years of searching] found a crochet pattern that I like for fingerless gloves. Most of the ones I'd come across were really bulky, but these are made with baby yarn, so they're soft and thin. Lion Brand Yarn has also come out with baby-weight yarn in black, so this little goth heart of mine is pleased. I started a set last night when Project Runway began and worked for about 1.5 hours. I had a few spare minutes this morning and then just used one of my often-wasted 15-minute breaks to put in a little more work. They are supposed to be 17 rows long. I'm at 19 and may keep going until they cover my entire forearm. I love the armwarmer-length gloves!! I may have a complete set to show you by tomorrow afternoon.

Squee :)
