It's Thursday so here's my #thursdaythree (a selfie and three random bits, created by @rukristin). 1. Today was *SO* frustrating. From politics (I am baffled by Republicans' unwillingness to stop a$$kissing this dude and their support of such blatant corruption; their narrow minded shortsightedness is insane) to traffic (you KNOW it's bad if I'm complaining about it because I really try to never be road-ragey) to being interrupted 1 million times to cutting the fabric wrong on THEE last thing I wanted to sew and ending up literally 3" short AND the fabric store didn't have any more of what I needed to Kaleb's basketball game to my mac 'n cheese turning out grainy AGAIN...I was grumpy and frustrated and annoyed today. Sorry fam. 2. BUT, two good things: I got to see @kaleb._.sorensen sing with his school choir at the library and Jake & I had a good conversation about WHY the mac 'n cheese has been grainy twice in a row. We didn't figure it out but it was still fun to just talk to him. 3. I can't believe Christmas is in 13 days. I'm pretty good on shopping, but I still need to wrap, make some caramel (I probably won't make fudge this year though), figure out some picture gifts, and DECORATE. Yes, it's true: I am not even decorated yet. I have a few things out but I've been distracted by trying to finish the table topper in my selfie and probably knocked around by some grief and some depression too. I will get it done...but I don't think I will get out everything this year. And that will be OK, right? How has your Thursday been? #thursday3 #selfie #tellyourstories #yourstoriesmatter #December #quiltersofinstagram #quilter #quiltingselfie

Thursday totally snuck up on me this week! But I still snapped a photo for #thursday3! 1 // 40 is creeping up (like...um...Sunday) and I think I’m ready to hop on the horse, or the bandwagon? Whatever, just let’s get going so I can embrace my back brace wearing, night serum applying, favorite burner using, vitamin taking self and be free to enjoy the new skillets and pans I bought myself for Christmas. 2 // Christmas shopping is DONE! Picked up a few last minute things today and even grabbed myself some stocking stuffers! Now if I could just get a few solid hours alone I could actually wrap something! 3 // CURRENTLY: WATCHING 📺 Fuller House and the Garth Brooks documentary on A&E 😭😭😭 LISTENING 📻 70s and 80s Yacht Rock FEELING 😣 Like someone is stepping on and stabbing my low back and hips. PLANNING 🗒 to do a whole lot of nothing during Christmas break! EATING 😋 @choczero almond keto bark and I may have had a cup-o-noodles this week. LOVING ❤️ That all the delivery drivers are taking drinks and snacks from the bin we have out on the porch!

Hey ho, it’s #Thursday3 time! 👋🏼 @rukristin 👋🏼 1. It rains and rains and I don’t much like it. I miss the sun. I tried to go out between showers but I failed. 2. I’m working on my nephew’s year end photo book today, very late. He’s cute and still likes being in photos - long may it last! 3. I listened to the Deck the Hallmark pod discuss the merits of The Mistletoe Promise and the Office Ladies discuss Sexual Harassment. I still haven’t listened to the MDWAP finale! I’m reading Prince’s memoir. I have the 3rd audiobook in the Winternight Trilogy to start too.

I know this is a bit shocking but it’s actually THURSDAY and I’m posting my #thursday3 . Here’s my selfie and 3 right now facts about me: 1| I got my hair cut and colored today. I thought about having my stylist color it differently but ended up going with the same color and highlights I’ve been doing for years. I did have her curl it afterwards instead of just straightening it since I don’t usually do that. #stuckinarut #maybenexttime 2| This week I caught up on This Is Us. The storyline with Rebecca hit way too close to home. Not sure if I’m going to be able to watch it in January! #alzheimerssucks #mademethinkofmydad 3| I’ve been slowly chipping away at my long Christmas To Do List. I’m trying not to pay attention to how few days are left and instead am just focusing on crossing something off every day. Today I bought the tins I need for the teacher gifts and a couple gift cards I needed. #teachersrock #13daysuntilchristmas If you’re reading this please consider participating in #rukristin awesome selfie challenge! It’s fun and simple - just take a selfie, share it along with 3 right now facts about yourself, and tag @rukristin

#thursday3 time holiday-ish edition. Guest appearance by my guy. Selfie, three right now things about you, tag friends if you want. Let’s do this. 1) We are in Somerville at Brian’s work holiday gathering. I know a handful of these folks, and it’s good to see them once a year. 2) I just mailed out my Christmas cards this morning. I shoot for getting them out no later than the second week of December. Glad I’m on target. 3) Errrmmmm, I need to get a move on with my Christmas shopping. Good thing I have the day off tomorrow and I’m taking mom out to do just that.

#Thursday3 tagged from @lostinalibrary13. 1: Every day is a struggle, lately due to the hardest breakup I have ever experienced. 2: I'm focusing on my new job to avoid feeling things as much as possible. 3: I've been walking 2 1/2 miles a day and even my lease is up, I'll be moving closer to the city. Also, I am told that it's okay not to be okay, but I feel like it's only okay if you're looking for a solution. 😐 #LifewithLilo #onepicdaily

#thursday3 - do you still need the explanation? I’m sharing a selfie and three facts about me right now as part of my selfcare practice. I got the idea from @rukristin who thought it up in the first place. 1️⃣ I am ever so grateful for the amazing friendships that I have made on Instagram and YouTube. 2️⃣ We are adjusting to a new routine yet again. It is exhausting but everybody is chipping in so it’s not all on me. 3️⃣ I’m off work tomorrow and I plan on going down to the beach for some alone time before winter break. . #seemownaysthursday3

Hey hey! Back again to share my #thursday3 which was started by the awesome Kristin @rukristin . .Your invited each week to do self love and couldn’t yourself! Here’s my 3 right now: 1- Feeling pretty CONTENT with the messiness of life right now. Life is a rollercoaster but it sure is full of blessings. And ending the night with COZY cuddles makes all the hectic-ness worth it. 2- Making a LIST and checking it TWICE! Of my creative projects of course! Thinking about which projects to continue, what format and which projects to let go of. Do you reevaluate at the end of the year? 3- Determined to keep cleaning up my crafty area and begin to organize my GIVEAWAY piles! BONUS 4- OBSESSED with my latest book!!! It’s called KID GLOVES and it’s a brilliant look at women, sexual history of women, reproduction issues, getting pregnant and births that don’t go right. Loved it!📚 Thank YOU for reading ALL of this!❤️. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .> #selfcare #craftymom #contentment #momentrepreneur #awesomeladiesproject #growthmindset #growyourself #creativepreneur #creativegrowth #createeveryday #embraceyourself #thisisme #youdoyou #scrapbook #lovetoread

Hi friends! Happy Thursday. It’s time for another round of #Thursday3 with @rukristin Here’s my winter selfie and 3 right now facts about me. 1. It’s finally December and I am loving that we have snow this year. Trying to jam as many holiday things into the season as I can. 2. I am bummed that I haven’t had a free minute to work on my @decemberdaily album (yet). Hopefully this weekend I can play catch-up. 3. It’s likely I’m going to spend all season screaming at Odin to leave the Christmas 🎄 alone. 🤣 How about you? What’s going on in your world?

Time for #thursday3 by @rukristin Take a selfie, write three things, tag three friends. 1) Jake has been super on it taking the kids to the library lately and he discovered for me that they have a very good collection of recent graphic novel volumes! So now I’m binge reading The Umbrella Academy, Ms Marvel, and Spider Gwen. Was not expecting that. Thanks library! 2) I was definitely not feeling many of my creative challenges over the summer, but I suddenly have motivation. So other than prepping for Christmas (and caring for kittens of course), I’ll be doing a ton of cooking and crafting this month. I like using Instagram to track my progress, so sorry in advance for spamming you (like the algorithm shows anyone anything anyway 🙄). 3) I found a surprise community cat colony in my neighborhood last week just before a community cat clinic, so I spent a lot of time TNRing (trap, neuter, return) and Eliza and I volunteered at the clinic (more about that @nerdnestfosterkittens ). I needed more of a homebody week this week to recover! What are you up to @brandi_kincaid @carlaconroy @30daysoflists ?

Hey there Thursday! I am one tired mother but here I am with my #thursday3 - a project started by @rukristin and @the_awesome_ladies_project. Threes things about me right now... • 1. I am thisclose to being done with my Christmas shopping. Just a few small items left to go! It feels like such a feat every year. This year I’m lucky that my husband did about 50% of the shopping for the kids on his own. • 2. I’m currently soaking up all the Christmas contemporary romance novels that I can. It’s like Hallmark movies in book form. I love losing myself in them starting at some point in October. Anyone else? • 3. Tomorrow is my last day of my current workout program (#transform20) - well, technically it’s Saturday but that’s a stretching day. I’m actually nervous because the workout tomorrow is 3 times longer than all the others. I know I can do it though! I can’t wait to share my story & results with y’all (and no - I won’t try to sell anything). • What’s going on with you this week? Tag me or comment if you share! • #shannonthursday3

Haven’t done a #thursday3 with @rukristin & @the_awesome_ladies_project in the longest time, and I needed a #decemberdaily photo 📷 1) Guest teaching in Young Fives this afternoon, it reminds me of the curriculum I taught in Kindergarten. Kids are at specials so I have a bit of a breather. 2) Can very much relate to the article going around that says Mom’s are the magic makers at Christmas & that it’s exhausting. 3) I’m having a good hair day & for some reason that makes everything better . I tag @mnmarks @itsalexmarie & @mrsfleischmann because I think it’s been awhile since they’ve done one too! Please join us by taking a #selfie & posting 3 current things, if you’d like to do it too!

My Thursday 3 (photo documenting challenge hosted by @rukristin where you share a pic and 3 right now things happening in your life) ✨ 1) This is me last night living my best sparkling potion making life. A big change for me in 2019 was starting a new job and just over 9 months down the line I'm super happy there and fun nights out like last night are the cherry on the top 🥂 2) I voted in the UK General Election today and I have mega election anxiety. I am so fed up of the state of our politics here and whilst a small part of me can't give up on the hope that when I wake up tomorrow things will be different; I also have just lost so much faith and I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for disappointment. If you're in the UK please go and vote if you haven't yet, the polling stations are open till 10pm. 🌹 3) I am already in my pyjamas and looking forward to spending the evening with my art journal, cheesy films and takeaway. 🍕 Or 🍜 though, I just can't decide!!

#thursday3 1. I needed some sun today so I parked as far away from the doors to the grocery store as possible and walked in. Here’s my reminder for all of us to get our Vitamin D. It works wonders! ☀️ 2. I’ve been doing a ton of written journaling lately and I just have SO MANY FEELS. It’s all good work but dang it’s been a lot lately. 📝 3. Today is my first wear of this cowl. The yarn was spun by the amazing @alexcreates and it’s so cozy! 🧶 #crochet #crochetlover #crochetaddict #yarn #yarnaddict #yarnlover #crochetgirlgang #southernwomanartist #homestudiolife #studiolifestyle #creativewomen #artistsofalabama #womenartistsofinstagram #lifeofanartist #creators #createeveryday #journaling

Hey. Hi. Hello. It’s #thursday3 so I decided to share this selfie with my journal I took ages ago for Get Messy but never shared here. (There goes that online real-time illusion 😂). I love this spread btw. It’s so simple. Anyway, here are some things that have been weighing heavily on my mind:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☆ My word and intentions for next year. Usually by this time of the year, I have a clear-ish idea of what my "One Little Word" is for the following year and what my general intentions are. But this year--right now--I'm actually at a bit of a loss. I haven't a clue where I'm headed--or really, where I want to be heading. I lack a heading--I'm headless. 😂 But all jokes aside, I'm slightly annoyed by this…slightly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☆ Speaking of heading, I'm in that weird place where I'm not sure what it is that I want in life anymore. To be fair, I've spent my entire rational thinking life trying to find out who I am, what I want to be, and how I want to live. To be honest, I don't think I'll ever fully figure it out. I have this unrestrained passion for many things but at the same time long for something much greater than life. I don't know how else to explain it, so I hope that makes sense.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☆ On the bright side however, I think I'm going to start a selfie challenge for myself. I have this idea—it's a wild one, but I'm full of them—of taking a selfie a week—probably for Thursday 3—but filming the process of creating that selfie and creating some sort of video log of it. I'll definitely have to challenge myself to make these videos—and the photo—artistic and interesting--poetic even. IDK it's definitely a developing idea floating around in my head.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyway, that's me. I hope you are doing well. What are you up too?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tiffanyjulia #selfportrait #selfie

[no as, just support] Hello lovely people 💕 today I wanna join in @rukristin and her #thursday3 with a layout (and a picture of myself) I created a while ago. I sprinkled some sequins on top of it all just the other day, so hey, it’s almost „new“ and „Insta“ 😂 1) I’m totally into Christmas this year and my final goal of having all gifts until the 15th is accomplished 😍 maybe I’ll find some cute (and additional) stocking stuffers but that’s an add on. 2) Im still thinking about my OLW for 2020. bloom vs grow . It’s a hard decision... EMBRACE has been really hard this year even though I found it so easily last summer! Let’s see how 2020 goes... 3) my December Daily is almost up to date. I’ll need to pr not my pictures for day 10& 11 and add some embellishments on them, but that’s it. I love this project so much and It was the best decision to switch from an album I created by myself to page protector versions. It’s so much easier and so much fun! #thursday3 #fraubergmolchscrappt #memorykeeping #decemberdaily #funday #love #gettingcreative #scrapbookingpage #background #cutfile #cutfiles #livelovelaugh #cricut #cricutexplore

December 11: #thursday3 22. Allergies come around this time of year and really make me feel like poo - I don’t think I’m sick but I can’t breathe, I’m congested, I have a hacking cough and my throat is sore. The joys of Houston air! 🤧 23. Warm liquids make my throat feel better so hot tea and veggie pho it is! 24. I hate taking medicine but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. #thisis48💖 #selfie #decemberdaily #decemberdaily2019 #aedecemberdaily #eesdecemberdaily2019 #blackandwhite
