Two of my favorite new things-




So just a couple little things that I am loving at the start of this cold chilly season. A couple of reasons to relax, stay inside,be all cozy and chill in my apartment in Chicago...

1. Learning how to, yup... knit!!! I am so excited about learning this new little craft (well, I can already tell by just by the beginning of this, that it can be huge). My good buddy Danielle and I spent a Sunday night this past week watching movies and making pretty stuff for barely any moola$$! Being crafty. She worked on these fabulous feather hair accessories that would make Anthropology jealous. Wish I had pics to post. And she also patiently taught me how to knit!!! It's so cool. So relaxing. And you can do other stuff like talk up a storm and watch movies while making your fabulous little design. I am currently working on a rich berry/purple squishy long scarf. We will see what happens! I am already over a foot and a half in. Totally fun.

2. The TV series "Mad Men". Holy cow... My hubby and I are soooo addicted it's not even funny. This is a fabulous, fabulous show. The writing, the story, the acting, the clothes, everything. Reminds me how happy I am that I am living now, and didn't grow live in the 50's, don't think being a professional graphic designer would have flown so much. Apparently, women in the biz were pretty scarce during that time. But anyway, love this show. The hubby and I have been watching the blu rays non stop. We stayed up til 3:00 am the other night because we just had to watch one more... Yup, it's a good one. Good thing to watch on a cold night.

Anyway, that's my little rant about a couple of fun things that I'm totally digging right now. Check ya laters. Gotta go watch "Mad Men" ; )
