TWiP: The Last Week of the Year

This Week in Pictures, Week 52, 2021

I can’t properly express how much it pleases me to be ending the year on a Friday. For TWiP purposes, all weeks end on Fridays, so when the end of a week corresponds with the end of the year, it just feels so neat and tidy. How nice for my 2021 photo and video projects not to extend awkwardly into the middle of another week! I’ve learned a few things this year, photographically speaking, and will tailor my 2022 project accordingly 🙂

TWiP: Another Pandemic Christmas

This Week in Pictures, Week 51, 2021

Just like last year, we connected via video to watch everybody open their gifts from three different locations: the gathering at Mom’s house, my living room, and a quarantined bedroom. It wasn’t ideal, but I’m glad that we have the option of this type of alternate last-minute plan.

TWiP: Polymer Inspired

This Week in Pictures, Week 50, 2021

I wrapped up my ornament-making season this week, and then whipped up a few jewelry pieces, because I was surprisingly still in the mood. That’s not great news for my dining room table, but it’s good news for anyone who’s been thinking they’d like a new colorful bangle bracelet to go with that sweater…

TWiP: The plural form of Flax

This Week in Pictures, Week 49, 2021

It was a full week. I’m thinking about how to refer to multiple Flax sweaters in a grammatically acceptable way, because I finished one Flax and started another this week. I also made more family portrait ornaments, and moved permanently out of the office space that I used to occupy before the pandemic.

TWiP: Ornament Season Begins

This Week in Pictures, Week 47, 2021

Ah, Thanksgiving week. I have always loved Thanksgiving, both for the opportunity to gather with family, and as a harbinger of the Christmas season. But during years such as this one, where I have been gainfully employed, I have also come to appreciate Thanksgiving for the four-day weekend it provides 🙂

TWiP: Maple is the new Pumpkin Spice

This Week in Pictures, Week 36, 2021

Last year I declared that the rest of the world was welcome to their pumpkin spice addiction, and that I would instead be quietly hording all of the maple products, thankyouverymuch.

Well, it turns out the rest of the world wants in on the maple thing, too. Never mind that maple is actually a late winter / early spring product when it comes right down to it. Somehow it is becoming the Next Big Fall Flavor.
