If the shoe fits…
Who doesn’t love a creative cat?
things to do instead of packing:
play with lite-brite
futz with Instax
remove all clothing
take dirty pictures
accidentally stand in front of open blinds completely naked in full view of the entire neighborhood
I really need to improve
at staying on task
and remembering to close my blinds
Today we celebrate with the religious conservative side of the family. When I was a teenager once I showed up to their holiday gathering with a fake lip-ring just to watch my Grandfather blow a gasket. (That joke backfired a few years later when I showed up with my first tattoo and he was sure it was a joke too.) Maybe today at the dinner table I’ll casually mention that I run a popular nakey-girl sex blog….
They’re not that hard to make.
It’s 4 folds and 4 cuts.
And even when you mess up (see the random tear drop shape in this one?) it still looks pretty.
I could show ya how if you wanted…
(P.P.S. Baking cookies *and* crafting…. at Christmastime self-care and preparing for a party are the same thing for me. Win.)
Heart’s Holiday Guide: Made With Love
There is nothing in the world quite like receiving a ‘one-of-a-kind made-just-for-you with heaps of love’ present.
For those of us with crafty hands and creative hearts it’s a matter of thinking of something thoughtful (within the realm of your ability) that your partner needs. Knit a scarf in their favourite colours (gold star if you make sure it goes well with their coat), create some art with their tastes in mind, have a photograph you took that might be special to your partner printed and framed. Build them something they need, personalize a collage, get crafty with your bad self.
If you were not blessed with creative hands but have a very big heart you can still do-it-yourself with a little effort:
Things you make with your own hands and heart carry a piece of you within them. Knowing you used your precious time and talents to craft them something unique will make your partner feel (rightfully) special. Hand-made gifts are things people truly treasure. It’s a tangible form of your love, and love is what the holiday season is really all about.
Oh. My. God. Can we get these? They are fantastic.
Of the above I still need to earn the shibari one and the high heel worship…. unless you count me lusting after my own feet in my fave heels… but I did make my husband undo my boots with his teeth during our first ffm threesome… and I made him undo hers that way too. Does that count?
