triple C morning!

Chessmasters goes way back to a time much simpler than this: MIAD. 2007-2008. Fourth floor Illustration studios. *sigh*  We had a huge scoreboard and enjoyed our Triple C mornings (chess, coffee, and cookies), which has now I think been officially changed to CCN mornings (chess, coffee, and nuts?). Doesn't quite roll off the tongue as nicely, but I'm quite anti-sugar and anti-flour now, so that's where we're at.
Sorry, Pietro, I couldn't draw you winning that first game because I was just so excited to finally win myself!  To everyone else: I did not actually dance on the chair. Though I probably should have...

I heart music!

So, crazy random assortment of songs. And I have to reiterate: She Wolf is an amazing song and the video rocks my socks. I can't stop watching.  (And yes - I know, I know. Kesha is on this list... I really dislike Kesha, but that song has a good beat and unfortunately it's super catchy!)

christmas for the kiddos!

I have a nephew and two nieces that all got some homemade presents from me this Christmas - including some hand-embroidered felt ornaments! yay! And ever since my nephew was born (almost 3 years ago), I've always taken his gifts, wrapped them in brown kraft paper, and drawn on them with sharpie and paint markers, so now I do it for all of them. Beckett is the only one who's old enough to recognize the drawings, but I still like to do it. Love those kiddos :3
