Life | The Leisure List

The Leisure List | Blackbird Darlin

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these because life got a bit non-leisurely. It’s been home-sweet-home a lot lately though, so I’m FINALLY catching up on music releases and my towering book pile!

1) I recently celebrated a birthday, and am now the happy owner of a Canon Selphy, thanks to the lovely boyfriend man. (YAY!) My biggest issue with Project Life pages and layouts is the frustration of uploading and then waiting for photo orders to get to me, so the instant gratification of this printer is already sweet. Also, I can’t get over how tiny and cute it is.

2) Did any of you have an Etsy Craft Party happening near you on June 6? I went to the one here in Seattle, and had a fabulous time playing with vintage photos, hanging with other crafty ladies (like Melissa) and drooling over the bins of washi that were set out for our crafty use. Definitely want to make this a tradition now!

3) So, my favorite band released a new album recently, (I can’t bring myself to post the album artwork cause it makes me cross-eyed) and that’s a super YAY! Still feeling it out a bit though…not a top favorite, but The Black Keys really can do no wrong with me, ever. (“Weight of Love” has been repeated an embarrassing number of times at this point)

4) I was only a chapter in of “Spin” by Catherine McKenzie before I wanted to knock some sense into this character…I couldn’t fathom doing what she did over the chance of a job like that, but that’s where the story comes from. I think her immaturity might continue to annoy me a bit, but I got totally sucked in to this book, and have been up waaay past bedtime to continue with it.

    Curiosity killed me to look at the album cover. Now I’m cross-eyed. Do like their music though

    oooo have fun with your self :D I think that sounds like the kind of book that would drive me crazy, but I can’t put down. You’ll have to let us know how it goes ;)

    Oooh, a selfie! I haven’t researched photo printers because I know if I do I will just want one even more!! But you have to tell me, is it awesome? :D

      So far I absolutely love it – it’s not at the same quality level of my Persnickety Prints orders (which I was expecting), but it’s still so good that I squealed and flapped my arms around when my first print came out…from my phone! Like magic!

      Space and portability is a big issue for me, so that’s a main reason why I wanted this particular one :)
