The autumn "blahs"

I've got the "blahs", which are like the blues, but less sad and more just a simple lack of enthusiasm and energy. The blahs cause a lot of moping about wearing your PJs all day long, wanting to snuggle under a blanket and cravings for chocolate. I know it's all down the dwindling light and the seemingly constant drizzle that makes everything drab and wet. This season just doesn't agree with me, even if I do love the beauty of "ruska" (there isn't an english word for this, it means the the colourful time when the leaves turn) which has been especially splendid this year, getting to wear a lot of layers and drinking lots of hot coco.

Getting ready for Luv-able & Hug-able

I've finished my pieces for Luv-able & Hug-able, but I'm having a hard time taking photos of them, since there's precious little light now with the days getting shorter and shorter, and the dreary weather doesn't help one bit either. I don't think I've seen the sun make even a brief appearance these past few days.
I had a rather unsuccessful photo shoot today, which admittedly didn't do much to improve my already blah mood. I hope to have better luck getting pictures of my snowy quintet tomorrow. I really enjoyed making these five plushies; I decided to do something a little different and I'm happy with how it all turned out and I'm eager to get to show them off now!


FIVE plushies?! You're like a plushie machine! I can't wait to see them.
