My name is Jennifer and I wandered in today to talk about my very exciting life! Well, moderately interesting life anyway. I work entirely too much these days and I have two very active little boys which doesn’t leave me with a lot of energy for crafting and reading but I try to fit it in when I can.
I do try to keep a couple of books on the go at all times. There are two books I’m currently reading. The first is Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. This is the second book in the Throne of Glass series. It’s a book about a young female assassin in a world ruled by a vicious king. I’m not sure I’m currently in love with the series but the first book was compelling and there are plot lines that I want to know how resolve.
The second book is a bit denser. I’m reading Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen. I am a chronic procrastinator and I’m always in search of systems that might make me less so. I discovered this system through the GTD Podcast and have implemented some of the system already. I’m not sure it’s actually helping but the ideas in the book, mostly regarding breaking everything down to an actionable item, are intriguing.
My favourite books include the entire Harry Dresden series and of course, the ever popular Harry Potter.
As far as crafting goes, I mostly knit and crochet these days. I’m trying to stashdown and have been working on projects that fit in my cargo pocket of my work pants. It’s kind of amazing how much knitting one can get done on work breaks. Mostly it’s been Christmas ornaments and baby hats for charity donation:
I’m always working on a variety of things including scarves, hats, slippers or whatever suits my fancy.
My current favorite finished object though is not a fibre art at all. It’s a costume for my youngest who demanded to be a marshmallow for halloween this year:
I mean, how cute is that?
