Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies...
OMG...I am in love! This weekend, I watched Across The Universe and it has to be my new favorite movie of all time. I never thought a movie could come along that would top Amelie, but this movie did it. If you haven't seen it, I HIGHLY recommend! I'm really not one for musicals, but this one was so different. Fair warning: if you're not into The Beatles, you probably won't enjoy this film. Myself? I love The Beatles! And, the remakes of the songs (the cast sang the entire score) were brilliant. I even bought the soundtrack...also amazing. And, I'm sorry but, move over Johnny Depp...I have a new celeb crush: Jim Sturgess. Gah! He's gorgeous, and so is his voice:
Here's a couple more amazing stills from the film. Very artistic, very colorful film. You gotta' check it out!
Moving on... I finally got some pictures of the puppies! They are only a couple of days old in this picture. Their eyes are open now, and we should have more pics soon!
This weekend, I finally tied up some loose ends on some projects that I had been working on. My Christmas banner is finally finished, and boxed up with the rest of my Christmas decorations for next year. The one I had made before was a gift for a friend, so now I have my own. :0)
And, I also managed to get that Hambly project put together. It's really hard to photograph where you can see the whole concept. The tree rubs and buttons are on one of the Clearly Heavy Overlays. Then, the overlay is mounted to the wooden plaque that's covered in the woodgrain paper. The overlay is raised off of the wood by about 1/2" so that it gives it dimension to the piece. It's really cool looking in person, but doesn't photograph so easily. I had planned on giving this as a gift, but this first one got a little fudged (it was hard to fasten the overlay where it laid flat, and didn't bow outward). Now that I know what I'm doing, if I decide to make another one, it will go together more easily.
Other than that, I did a little cleaning and a little organizing this weekend. I also made a run to the flea market that they hold every weekend at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh. I got a couple of choice finds, but I'll save those to share tomorrow. I hope everyone had a great weekend! :0)
