This Week’s Folded Squees

Fizgig Avatar

What’s not to love about Fall? Before I get to today’s list, I want to say “Thank You” to those of you who’ve commented and enjoyed my Letter to Humans Regarding Halloween that I wound up writing and cross-posting. I had a blast writing it!

Okay, on to this week’s squees!

1) Seriously, Pinterest. How many cool things are on this corkboard? WOW!

2) I’m trying to learn origami. The book of papers I picked up is for beginner’s, so it’s stiffer and holds its shape differently. Ah well, gotta start somewhere!

3) Kind of cheating here, but because origami is my New Thing To Learn, I found out that toilet paper origami is a “thing.” Amazing!

4) Discovered Room on the Broom via Turns out it’s a book, game, app, and has loads of activities for kids. Neat-o!

5) has a photo gallery and they’ve started to upload pictures of Halloween-inspired makeup and nails. This Halloween manicure is pretty cool!

6) Assembled (hopefully) the last of our replacement furniture. We’ll probably have to get another bookshelf though. Joy of joys… Still? It did NOT sit in the box and for a few hours I was an expert mechanical engineer!

7) And last but not least? Elsa and Anna have made their way into the land of Storybrooke on Once Upon a Time. I have to say, character-wise? Anna is a breathe of fresh, heroic air!
