happy holidays cuties of the interweb! so if you haven't noticed, the holiday season is here and it seems like everything and everyone around you is forcing you to feel cheery and happy!
but i'm feeling blue and i honestly don't know why, because i'm surrounded by such wonderful people, and i have a warm home to live in and i have my health etc. fortunately listening to Christmas Makes Me Blue by Simone White makes me feel like i'm not alone
the video is also really cute
so i've been trying to get into the holiday spirit by watching Elf, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Home Alone, and pretty much any other xmas movie you can think of. i also made cookies, and did an outfit post beside my tree (can you spot my pacifier ornament???? might start wearing it as a necklace when i have to take down the tree). i also dyed my hair back to pink since it's the easiest colour to achieve without having to bleach my locks again. i tried to do some serious posing but gave up sorry
|the skort (HA) is thrifted, beach house sweater from the show in october, glitter tights from Sears (???) and my yellow dr.martens from a local store! heh hey DIVINE I see you!!!!!!!|
since my mom's a teacher i went into her classroom to volunteer (weeee my exams are over!!!) and instead coloured with crayons oops
also i did some embroidery! it only took me 3 flipping hours to make a flower and a tooth. i feel like my attention span might be too short for embroidery
i went thrifting last week and picked up a photo album which i'm going to use to put all my loose doodles and collages in- since i usually just store them messily on my desk/in drawers
|my socks/newspaper clipping from when thurston moore came to ottawa|
|same sock print/roger waters drawing|
|diary entry/print of ashley|
|pictures for collages|
finally, i thought i would show my final project that i made fore my video/projection class. it's an extension on my piece on menstrual cycles that i did for my first assignment and instead decided to approach the subject through presenting it as a ritual. i placed 7 different objects relating to periods in a semi circle around a hanging bed sheet, and walked clockwise, collecting a piece of yarn that connected all of the objects. there's symbolic meaning in all of the objects as well as in the video projected on the bed sheet but i think it's more interesting to leave that to the viewer to interpret rather than have me give it all away!
|it's hard to make out with this picture but i'm cleaning a stained bed sheet with water in the projection video|
happy holidays thanks for reading!
