I’ve been thinking a lot about my vision board for the upcoming second installment of B4. I’m having a hard time moving my thinking away from things I already have and love. My tendency, it seems, is to just want a replenished supply of my favorite (often guilty) pleasures. But if this vision board business is as powerful as it seems, then I should use it for really incredible, important things that I don’t yet have.
So that those pleasures that will not make it onto the board are duly noted and appreciated, I give you Bee’s top ten guilty pleasures:
- Dry red wine
- Deep, dark chocolate (we’re talking 75% or more cocoa)
- Extra sharp white cheddar cheese
- Chuck Taylors (these still might make it onto the board because I’d like a green pair)
- Booty shakin’ songs, like this and this
- Silly commercials like this and this
- Large silver hoop earrings
- Pretty office supplies
- Fuzzy creatures–particularly dogs
After spending entirely too much time window-shopping on Etsy, lusting after gorgeous newsboy caps, I decided to find a pattern online and have a go at making my own. The first one–a gorgeous, soft, and completely impractical cream-colored one flopped. I was using yarn and a needle that were both way too big for the pattern, and I ended up with a floppy rasta hat (that I’m not nearly cool enough to pull off but that might someday find use in a costume or something. . . unless I become friends with someone with a REALLY GIANT head or really sweet dreds, in which case, I’ll have the perfect Christmas gift).
So I made some adjustments and tinkered with the pattern some and finally ended up with this. I’ll probably make at least one more because I still have plenty of that creamy yarn. . . and there’s still that gorgeous lime green yarn waiting to be turned into something fabulous.
I think I like it. And it’s one crafty thing I did over break.
