Friday Night Fab Five

Hi everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things I love during any given week. This week, well I don't think there's a theme...wait, maybe the theme is love because I love all of these things. sing*womp womp womp*/sing :P

1. Peeps


When I was a kid (i.e.-"Back in my day..."), the only time you could get Peeps was at Easter and you got a choice between a chick and a bunny in either yellow or pink. Seriously, kids. Not so these days where you can get your choice of color, during every holiday in multiple shapes and loads of flavors. Some people hate change but I say that having Peeps almost year round was the best thing to ever happen to this country. Okay, that might be an overstatement...

Art Journaling Tourists

Hi everyone!

Got a new art journal spread for you today. :D This one took me months to do (I'm like a creative broken record!) I started with the background and began my "glue down, walk away" routine but, as per usual lately, I walked away far more than I glued down. lol Also, I originally set out to do two separate pages, not a double spread but it happens like it happens I suppose. :)

Korea Loves Crochet

Hi everyone!

So my current obsession is the Kdrama i.e. Korean TV shows. Kdramas are a brilliant format: they run a set number of episodes and almost never go beyond 1 season. You get a complete story (well, most of the time) and they run the gamut from melodrama to romantic comedy to supernatural to historical and so forth. (Actually, I just finished one that was all 4 of those. LOL) I've watched a LOT of series in the past year or so. lol (You can find some Kdramas on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime although you can subscribe to Kdrama specific streaming sites such as Drama Fever, Viki and Crunchy Roll.)

One thing I've noticed, both in Korean dramas and movies is that crochet pops up quite a bit. Which thrills me to no end, I'm a hard core hooker and you typically don't see much variety of crocheted props or clothes, if at all. lol But since discovering Korea's vast landscape of dramas and films, I've spotted more crochet than I almost can count although I try to take pictures whenever it happens. lol Here's some of my latest hooked up discoveries:
