Shame on me

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:

  1. Dry red wine
  2. Deep, dark chocolate (we’re talking 75% or more cocoa)
  3. Extra sharp white cheddar cheese
  4. Chuck Taylors (these still might make it onto the board because I’d like a green pair)
  5. Booty shakin’ songs, like this and this
  6. Sushi
  7. Silly commercials like this and this
  8. Large silver hoop earrings
  9. Pretty office supplies
  10. Fuzzy creatures–particularly dogs

Thinking Cap

 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.
