Pink Paris Girl

I guess it's that time of the year when you have to do some spring cleaning. I usually avoid it but I tackled the chaos that is my wardrobe this week. Granted I can't do much with the kid hanging around so I took opportunity on the day my hubby was home.

Let me preface this a bit. I have 7 cats and 2 dogs. They used to have free access to all the rooms in my home until that flea infestation fiasco and I kicked them out of my bedroom. It was hard because they're clever and know how to open doors. That said, they know how to open drawers as well as they provide a soft nest to sleep in. Long story short I had 3 full drawers of clothes covered in cat hair.

I cleverly skipped one since it was my hubby's and he can deal with it and one had all my socks and underwear in. Ok, I must say that these drawers didn't get used much, one (1.) because they were covered with fur, two (2.) because I have another set of drawers in the bathroom downstairs where I usually get dressed so I ignored this problem for a while.

Yeah, this task took me a couple of hours alone which is baffling to me because I thought I'd just throw stuff away. But when you actually go through the clothes you kind of feel bad for getting rid of them if they're well preserved.

I actually had an inkling once before to go through my wardrobe but then I opened it and saw that these are still clothes I'd wear today if they fit me. You know, all that "I'll lose weight and wear them" thinking. Safe to say the clothes are still there.

With their Pet

I hosted this particular swap once before and I loved the results it gave so I did it again. We had 2 columns. You had to choose a person or a character from the first column and draw their pet from the second column of animals.

I have a question for you today that I'd love for you to answer. What do you do on a daily basis that makes your life exciting? I feel like my life is very monotonous and boring and I'd love to change things up a bit to get some "fresh air" in my daily routine.

Favorite things Moley

February's moley journal for Zandradee on the theme of "things that make you happy". She also asked us to get out of our comfort zone in regards to the media we usually use and try to experiment. So I went for mostly collage.

My three favorite things here are travel, reading books (Pride and Prejudice still being my favorite) and Fennec fox. I couldn't repeat favorite things that others did before me, so I had to think really hard to come up with something else. Here is my list:
  • my baby boy (obviously I couldn't put photos of my kid in someone else's art journal)
  • baby animals
  • my pets (everyone's favorite thing a.k.a. cats and dogs)
  • listening to music
  • making ATCs
  • cake
  • tattoos
  • being vegan
What makes you happy?

Feathered friends

You know when you're dead set on something but then are thrown obstacles on your path? It's what's happening in my life right now. I was so sure of myself and positive I knew what I wanted but then realized I had no support whatsoever. Which makes it difficult but not impossible. However, when you try to find the best option, everything seems to be set against you. Then I wonder. Is this the right path? Or am I thrown these obstacles to change course? It's so confusing.

Then I start to reconsider all the options I threw away in the begging and thinking maybe they're not so bad. But then again these options were the reason I started to look for an alternative path to begin with. Why can't things just be simple? Why does every major thing in my life have to be difficult?

And no, it's not worth it in the end. I usually give up before then because if it's not easy, then it's not meant to be, right? When it's meant to be, everything falls into place. When it's meant to be, then everything lines up, the stars, the people, the schedule, the money and you make it happen. Or am I naive? Too optimistic? Or just plain misguided on how to live a life? I mean, I'm no teenage here. I should have this shit figured out by now.

Three different styles of mermaids. Above one even has glitter in her hair. Ariel below is obviously in Tim Burton style.

It's my birthday today. :) I'm getting old.
