Pale, Pink, and Punctuated
______BornPretty sent me over these neat little punctuation mark earrings, and I think they're positively precious! Quirky earrings have to be my favorite accessories, because even if you feel like they're a little too much, you can always have them peeking out from your hair to tone 'em down a bit. But I was more than delighted to let these punctuated cuties have full stage. Plus, it got me out of my comfort zone with outfits and into the colorful tight wearing season.

______For those of you who celebrated it, I hope that your Thanksgiving was wonderful, and that you voraciously consumed unmeasurable amounts of gravy-slathered turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing until your stomach faced a glorious, carb-induced coma. Mmmm. May we all suffer together.
______I am thankful for many things that I am unable to list. I am thankful for my new car; although it is no longer a cute little beetle bug, it has much more amenities, is much safer for interstate travel, and can lug around all sorts of clunky art projects (and more dead bodies, as a friend so kindly pointed out). Now I have five extra seats and a trunk bigger than a mini-fridge to carelessly toss junk in. Fabulous!
______I'm thankful for the wonderful art teachers I've had this semester. Though the semester isn't quite over yet, I've learned an abundance of artsy knowledge, such as discussing the direction of my own work, conveying ideas on a deeper level, exploring potential career opportunities, and learning how art nowadays isn't about being able to render something like a renowned Renaissance artist, but rather (loosely) a practice that depends on how you do it opposed to what it is... which is weird.
______I am thankful for my bike and for my darling roommates, who are the best I've had so far in college.
______I am mostly thankful for my parents and how supportive they have been... especially over this break, since I have art projects spilling from one room to the next (specifically, one on each floor--one consuming the floor of our second-story bonus room, one in the main floor's study with colored pencils flanking it, and a decent sized painting lazing about my dad's basement workshop).
