The Creative Owlette

A place for my photography, crafts, makeup, creative outlet. All photos by me.

So excited that I caught up with the first seven seasons of Doctor Who and can now watch an episode with the rest of the world. Picked up this guy at the comic book store in honor of tonight’s premiere #doctorwho #Whovian

Our kestrel friend hanging out on my fiancé’s head

My fiancé and I took a walk this afternoon in our town (Salem, MA) and met this friendly bird - I think a kestrel? I noticed him sitting in the grass, watching me from not far away, which seemed strange. A bit later he decided he was going to hop onto the head of anyone who got close to him. Pretty cool to see him so close, but I wonder why it wasn’t more afraid of people.

I got a few close-ups of him on my fiancé’s head (I managed to keep him off my own!) but I’ll put those in a separate post

I kind of feel like a unicorn when I wear this (ginormous, candy-colored #shawl) #knitting

Beer Camp mix

Myron’s Walk - Sierra Nevada and Allagash

I forgot to rate this one at the time of drinking it…


Beer Camp mix

Sierra Nevada/Ninkasi Brewing - Double Latte

Strong coffee flavor (3.5/5)

Beer Camp mix by Sierra Nevada (and 12 collaborating breweries)
I love these bottle caps!

This is a really cool concept - Sierra Nevada collaborated with 12 different breweries to create 12 different beers. I usually shy away from cases of beer because I almost always prefer trying new beers to having an old favorite. This had only one of each beer, and I think the case is the only way to get each of them. I also like that it doesn’t seem to be overly hop-heavy (I’m not a fan of IPAs or anything else too hoppy).

On the bus to see my boys! I saw at least two other passengers in Arsenal kits :) (at South Street Station - Megabus)
So in love with these Mason jars, and the lid/straw combo! Not only are they adorable, but they’re great b/c I can cold-steep tea using the regular lid, and then swap it for the straw to drink. Twee AND utilitarian!
Current tea is Davidstea Lime Gelato - REALLY delicious cold!

My Lars and the Real Girl scarf

The pattern I used gives you something which looks pretty close to the one in the movie, I think. I also used a yarn which was similar in color to the movie version. It’s is a lovely blue/grey with some green shimmery bits, as you can see from the photos. It gives it some added interest without being too over-the-top.
