Impossible Things (In Progress)

Just to give you an idea of how my week is going: This morning I did something strange and actually decided to eat breakfast. I drizzled honey on some homemade sourdough toast and proceeded to eat it while getting ready for my actual day job for which I make a small effort to look like an actual human. Apparently I dripped a little honey on one of my makeup brushes (yes, I own makeup brushes, don’t look so surprised) and didn’t realize this until I was putting on eyeshadow and my lids started feeling a little… stuck.

That’s right, you’re dealing with a person who glued her eyeballs open with honey before eight AM this morning.

I also managed to kill my internet and accidentally zip-tie my hands together in the last 24 hours, because… I don’t even know. It’s better not to ponder these things too deeply.

Some weeks it is impossible to do things right, and instead of dwelling on it, I felt compelled to do this…


Basically when my life is a shit-show, I deal with it by drawing on things with sharpie markers. (See also: my bathroom wall.)

The cat deals with it by “helping.”


I’ve only got about half the 18×24 sheet covered with my impossible things…


Some of you joined in the fun on Facebook last night, but I’ve still got some space to fill, so I’ll make you a deal… Give me some good “impossible things” to add to the list, and when this is finished I’ll scan it and post it here so any of you who would like a copy can download and print one yourself if you like.

I mean, I’m not a great illustrator, there are probably misspellings, and a not-insignificant amount of alcohol was consumed during the making of this project (by the cat, obviously.)

So it’s not exactly a stunning work of art (the original inspiration of Things That are Awesome from Pinterest is though, so you might want to check that out) but it is fun, which is mostly what counts around here. Especially for those weeks when the simplest things are feeling a little impossible.

  1. Is your poster still going to be offered as a free download? I’d love to have a copy of it (that is, if you’ve had the time to finish it up). If not, totally understand — life is busy!

  2. Your style is unique in comparison to other folks I have read stuff from.
    Many thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this page.
