All music videos from now on until forever can just be dancing that makes me want to cry, thankyouverymuch.

I feel as though I have fully escaped the ocean of illness. My time is spent doing as opposed to staring. I am making golden animals for the play. I am also making a troupe of dancing briars and I'm excited about that. I am going to play with using foam and incorportaing a trick to allow the dancers to make roses appear. Gideon is in the dance, so I have all the info I need plus a willing(?) model.

Mat and I have decided that Friday the 13th is much more our speed than Valentine's, so we'll go to breakfast tomorrow and maybe do some thrifting. We might try to find Dracula Untold to watch (I expect it to be awful, but that is ok). Saturday we'll have a house full of boys. Maybe we'll make our own pizzas and watch Goonies.

I have been trying to wrap up a quick sewing job before a big exciting painting job, but I'm out of practice and ugh, knits. My machine is also awful. I have my MIL's here but got annoyed with it and put it away. I think I have to try it again.

I continue to giggle over Mat and Kat dolls. I want to get them iPhones, but I need to make sure they don't neglect their together time. Also, shoes.

Happy Thursday.

Gorgeous video. Did you see the clip from the Grammys where Annie Lennox joined in on this? I didn't watch the show but that part at least was brilliant.

My God, you're a creative powerhouse! I'd love to see in-progress as well as finished pics. Hearing about how you make all these things too, I love peeking in on someone's creative process.

We're doing an un-valentines day too. So much nicer not to brave the crowds or have to eat the "special" aka the hotel-buffet-style food that's usually cooked up for V-day. Plus we'll be at the Doctor Who convention with the boys for v-day. I did make H a hilarious Valentines day card you might get a kick out of since you're whovians too. I've sealed it up already but maybe I'll take some pics after I give it to him.

I did see that clip! And only that clip! Man, she was amazing.

I love in progress shots and I am so so bad at them. I don't know why! I want to try harder because I do think it is fun to peek in too. You are so good at sharing your incredible work!

I am thinking of diving in to foam for the briar costumes. I really can't spend too much money, but I think it would be the easiest material to convey the sharp angles but allow the kids to do a very physical dance. I'm thinking just harness/collar type pieces. I have to shop for materials this weekend. We used thin sheets of foam for Gid's Halloween costume armor, but I am looking into thicker stuff with some rigidity.

Ha, nothing makes you sound older or more married than when you want to avoid the lovey dovey Saturday night date crowd! I hear you. Doctor Who convention! That is going to be amazing, I'm excited to see all of you decked out and yes, the card! Did you see that Dr. Who Legos are in the works?? Toby is thrilled.

Superb dance!!! I, too, am overcome by dance vids. It's one of the best things about youtube...not the cats or the boys kissing...or the fanvids...but all of the dance that is now just at our fingertips!

Glad you're feeling better and back in the creative saddle!
