Weavercat is a 22 yr-old female thing who doesn't know what she wants to do in life. A current art-student who has rediscovered her love of prehistoric critters. I'd like to be a scientific/medical illustrator someday.

Thinking about things I want

I keep seeing folks with nice brown paper or toned paper sketchbooks and unfortunatly: The Hobby Lobby, Michaels, JoAnns’, and Dick Blick don’t have them. This is all I want for Christmas/Birthday this year. 

The Utrecht one at 7x10 has 80 pages and while spiral bound (I honestly don’t mind spiral bound at all) would be nice. It’s only $14… it looks nice. 

Along with dinos and prehistoric mammal toys. <3 And tea. I wish for Gunpowder Green-tea. I’ve only had it once and it was incredible. I will admit that I am so grateful for dj-datass for sending me the little jar (using that as a salt jar now!) of Chai blend last Christmas and the teabag as well. I brought em to college and it breaks up the monotony of having Earl Grey every night. I never thought I’d be bored with Earl Grey but… I ran out of the Chai blend when I got here and yeah.

Must send this list to Mom now. Also, advisor is not getting back to me about classes. :I C’mon advisor, I need you to reply back soon. 

ALSO! On the ‘Expressive Beasts’ book (or I could title it Uncanny Beasts…) I have great ideas for False Facebeasts. Think predatory monster salamander. It’s neat. <3 All False Facebeasts are based on avian, reptilian and amphibian creatures. 

Warm Toes

This morning I discovered something amazing. My toes were so cold today and my socks were not fresh from the dryer so I improvised. The following is my way of warming up socks for cold feet.

  1. Place socks on a chair or sofa.
  2. Sit your butt** down on socks.
  3. Keep position for 5-10 minutes or until toasty warm.
  4. Put warm socks on cold feet.
  5. Dance for joy.

*- Preferably a clothed buttocks.

**- Can be performed with a cat if need be.
