mellicious: pink manicure (HP - Phoenix)

I was going to write something about "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" - which we saw twice, once the weekend before Thanksgiving and again on Thanksgiving Day - but I can't figure out what to say past "I liked it a lot and so did Rob." This may have more to do with my state of body/mind right now - I feel kinda like crap, honestly - than with anything having to do with the movie. Obviously I'm going to have to come back to that topic later.

Man, I hope I'm not getting sick.

Well, here, I'll throw you a couple of random holiday-related pictures. I found a paper-chain kit at Target last week, in the $1 section, so I bought three of them. They came color-themed so I bought one of each in red, green, and gold, and I alternated them when I put them together. It's not something it ever occurred to me that I needed a kit for before, but now that I have paper-chains draped all across the living room, I think they're pretty brilliant. It was just pre-cut strips of paper and some stickers to hold them together with.

It doesn't say how long of a chain you're meant to get, but with three kits' worth, it wraps most of the way around two sides of the living room. I estimated I have something like 18 feet of chain, altogether. Here's part of it:

I just taped it up and so far it's holding fine. I think it's kind of awesome, really.

(I'm all into creative use of tape, lately. Late one night I used most of a roll of flashy purple mylar tape decorating the edge of my computer monitor, and you can also part of see the results of that in this picture.)

Thus far the only outside decoration I've put up is my big silver wreath on the balcony door. I'm sure I'll get around to doing some more of that later.

That's so neat! I haven't seen that in Targets yet. But this makes me want to make a chain also. I've a blank wall in my room, and that would spruce it up a bit.

The nice stuff about the kits is that it's pre-cut and it's made from really nice heavy paper to it hangs well. However, we used to make paper chains - from wrapping paper, I think - when we were kids. It was one of the items in my mom's neverending well of craft ideas!

I gave a peak at one Target, but had a kiddo with me and was in a rush; didn't see it. I think I remember making paper chains as a kid. I bet it'd be neat to get some of the glitter scrapbook paper and make them to hang also.
