busy / busy

L - Nikon / T - Nikon

I took an extra 2 days off from work for Thanksgiving and I have really taken advantage of it. I worked non-stop, almost, on new Christmas card designs for my etsy site, filled some etsy orders, and I'm making ornaments to list on there as well (check back later). Plus I got the lights on the tree, the wreaths on the windows, lights on the bushes, candles in the windows and have gradually started decorating inside. This 1st day of December actually felt like December. The temperatures were low and I enjoyed a fire in the fireplace all day long. I think kitty has enjoyed me being home - she's sleeping right here looking so cozy. It's too bad we can't have 3 day work weeks all through December isn't it. Imagine all we could accomplish in preparation for the holidays. It sure will be hard to go back to work tomorrow.
one of my final projects for photography is to create a zine. it's titled "a portrait of an abandoned abode" and i used film images of photos i took at the abandoned house. i worked on the layout when i was home and mom gave me some suggestions on how to put it together but of course i modified it to fit my needs. for instance instead of stitching it together i used black hair bands and i actually like the way it looks. i have to hand out 1o of my zines in downtown athens. should be interesting.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
