January Obsessions.

Still no crafting for 2011, but here's my January Obsessions.  With the holidays just a couple of weeks behind me, I really don't have much I have been obsessing over.  But, you know me.  I need just 20 seconds in a hardware store and could give you 20 things I want.  So here we go!

Estee Lauder's Sumptuous Mascara.  I am forever trying to find the perfect mascara. Mascara is one of life's necessities for me.  I rarely do without.  My friend always gives me her free Estee Lauder samples so I get to try out different mascaras when I get lazy and run out before buying a new tube - which is how I discovered this mascara.  From the first use to the last, it keeps my eyelashes looking really...well, sumptuous.  Love.It.

Glen Hansard's Say It To Me Now.  I know I am totally behind on this one, but you can't deny it's an amazing song.  And, well, Glen Hansard is amazing.  I finally caught Once over the weekend after many, many attempts thanks to Anita + Apple TV + Netflix (a life changing combination I might add).  I've heard so much about the soundtrack to Once that I purposely waited to see the movie before listening to it.  Now that I have seen the movie, I am addicted to Glen Hansard.  Especially to this song.  If by chance you are one of the few people in the world that hasn't seen Once, you can check out the entire soundtrack here.

Basic Grey Micro Mono Stickers.  I love these stickers.  I've used them on several cards and can't get enough.  They are such a perfect size for cards and smaller projects and come in so many different colors.  Apparently, I am not the only one that thinks so.  They are never in stock!!

Soundtrack from An EducationLike I said, I got a chance to catch up on some movies last weekend that I've been meaning to watch.  For a long time. So please forgive me for bringing up old stuff here, but I absolutely loved the music in this movie. It's got an eclectic mix of artists including Duffy, Melody Gardot, and Madeleine Peyroux, which happen to be three of my favorite ladies.  The movie itself had me wanting to transport myself back into the 60's so I could wear all of those fabulous clothes.  I die.

Julie Chen, Book Artist.  I recently got to watch PBS's TV Series Craft in America. The series explores different crafts, artists and their techniques. And it is truly fascinating.  In the "Orgins" episode, Julie Chen's amazing work is introduced.  She is a book artist and she is spectacular.  Love her concepts and clean lines.  Check out her portfolio here

This weekend is already looking to be busy but I've got a project I'm trying to work out in my head that I hope to get to tonight.  Wish me luck!
