Winter Wonderland?

winter wonderlandAlright, I wouldn’t call it a winter wonderland… Let’s face it, anything that has the word winter, snow can not be considered a wonderland, in my opinion. Snow looks pretty from the window but from outside it is a different story.

I had time to paint last night for the first time in quite a while. This was what happened. Maybe sometime this weekend I’ll get a frame so I can get it up on Etsy!

 

M.C. Escher LEGO Recreations

I love M.C. Escher. A lot. When I saw this I had to repost it. Ohh my, the geekery is coming out!

Artists Andrew Lipson and Daniel Shiu were inspired by M.C. Escher who is most famous for his “impossible structures”. They wondered if it was possible to recreate the drawings in LEGO form.

Andrew and Daniel took 16 shots, zoomed in on specific parts of the models, and glued them together as a mosaic panorama.

Also, if anyone finds an email address for these guys would you please send it to me? I would like to let them know that I posted it but I can’t find an email anywhere. Thanks!

DIY Candy Cane Vodka

Okay, I’m not usually festive. I’m kind of a scrooge when it comes to holidays so, I’ve decided to work on that. This is my first step… Candy Cane Vodka! Yummy! It is very easy to make and I assume that it will taste amazing. I’ve never made this before but I have made cherry and watermelon Jolly Rancher vodka and that was pretty good.

What can you use this for you ask? I recommend pouring a small amount of it in your hot chocolate on a cold day. That would be pretty good. Maybe it would taste good in your coffee (I am definitely not suggesting that you to indulge in an alcoholic beverage before work), and maybe sprite. If you come up with any other ideas let me know and I would be happy to add them!

Things You Will Need:
Mason jar
Candy canes
Unflavored vodka

Step 1:

Break up a few candy canes (I think I used 7) and drop them into the bottom of your mason jar. The more candy canes you use the more flavorful your vodka will be.

Step 2:

Pour in the vodka.

Step 3:

Let the jar sit for a a few minutes and shake it up.

Put it in the refrigerator. Shake it periodically. When the candy canes dissolve it is ready to drink!


Happy Monday!

ENJOY! 🙂

Who Says Hair Makes You Beautiful?!

I have had long hair for as long as I can remember. In the past two years I’ve MAYBE had it cut 3 times. It was easier to braid it and be done with it.

My hair was about 24 inches long… until today.

When I was a senior in college my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Watching her go through that was very difficult for me. This was someone that I talk to every day, someone who used to braid my hair for me… and now she was losing hers. She has since recovered (YAY Mom!) and is doing very well.

I decided to donate my hair to Locks of Love. So today, I told one open-minded person that I was going. If I told more people they probably would’ve talked me out of it and I didn’t want that.

I went to the hair salon and got 11 inches chopped off.

I don’t particularly like it but I don’t hate it either. It will grow on me. I know that I made a good decision and that is what makes me happy.

If you have long hair i highly recommend you donate it. Here are my top 10 reasons:

1. Someone else would be more than thankful for it

2. There is no better feeling in the world than helping someone else

3. When women lose their hair it is a serious shock to their system. Our culture puts so much emphasis on “hair is beauty” that women feel very insecure without it.

4. It constantly gets pulled

5. It gets caught in the car door

6. you can’t do anything with it but pull it up. Even then it probably falls out of the ponytail

7. It is heavy

8. It takes FOREVER to dry

9. You spend a lot of $$ on shampoo and conditioner

10. You can’t curl it because the weight pulls out the curls

BONUS: It grows back!
