green means go

March 22, 2011

i’ve got things to do and places to be today, but i had to start out the day right: some reading, some doodling, some brekkie, some music. i’m spoiling myself; i know that i won’t always be able to start every day so casually and thoughtfully.

on another note entirely:

one time, hannah and i went to the book store to kill some time while her parents were at the hospital. we sat in the children’s section for probably 45 minutes, eating scones and drinking drinks we’d gotten at starbucks, reading stories with easy words and big print. Β we wandered over to the art section, and lingered a moment among the clearance shelves.

hannah bought a lot of things and, at the point of sale, won 100% off of her purchase. happily, one of the purchases were these little cardboard mp3 speakers that you could decorate yourself. even happily-er{…}Β she presented them to me and announced that i could decorate them any way i wanted. joy.

that was some time ago, and i haven’t seen her since, so the speakers are sitting on my shelf by the daffodils from my mum-in-law.

{which are now dead [the flowers, to be perfectly clear]. which is beside the point.}

anyway, here they are, hannah, in case you’re wondering how they turned out. turns out, it is pretty hard to color on a cardboard cube with pencil crayons.

happy tuesday all. or else.

    The top doodle with the quote is my favourite yet. It could be my life mission statement!

    I LOVE THIS! I’ve never seen speakers like that. And as always I love your hand drawings! Prettiest speakers I’ve ever seen!
