I've been sketching, trying to get inspired again, setting up the Christmas tree, talking to friends on the phone, listening to music, trying to find a gift for a friend of mine {anyone know something funny/awesome to get a 18 year old guy?} :)

I saw this on Paige's blog, and thought I'd give it a whirl ;) i think it'd be fun to do it once a month.

obsessing over:  painting on book pages {haven't gotten around to it yet though ;)

Working on: getting more stuff in my shop, getting inspired - I totally lost my 'oomph' a month or two ago... ;'( , growing closer to God, helping the homeless, and just having fun and being happy :)
Thinking About: my friends, re-doing our house, painting my furniture, what to get my friend for his 18th birthday....

Anticipating: Christmas! We're going to visit my uncle and aunt and it's going to be a blast!

 Listening to: Without You by Usher, Fire to the Rain by Adele and It will Rain by Bruno ;)
