Iron Crane Curtain

You’ve really got to hand it to those Anthropologie employees for cranking out gorgeous art installations made (seemingly) of trash, discarded pieces of fabric, recyclable paper and various layers of paint. It’s not easy making fantastic, artistic feats; a realization I’ve placed some personal stock in during the course of the past few weeks. Yes,…

Improvements

I’ve been investing some R&R into this blog, if you’ve noticed the shiny new domain. For those of you with iPads, you’ll be pleasantly greeted with this image when you save my blog onto your home screen as a button. Behold: Pretty Huh? I’m almost done with my origami crane curtain. Here’s a little something…

Minimalism

The tiny house movement has inspired me to get a tiny bed. This is the first time I’ve slept in a twin since the third grade. It was the same bed I got for my 11 year old cousin actually, the Ikea Tromso bed. Bunk beds are cool and I’ve never had a sibling that…

Infinity Scarves How-To, Scarves in General.

Scarves. So necessary, a staple of fall. So the only thing I’ve learned how to knit. So annoying when you aren’t quite sure how to wrap it around your neck. I’ve devised a solution. I mean, other people have too. But I would have thought of it if they hadn’t, so it’s sort of like…

Several Things:

First: I really wish I were psychic. Or that Cheaptickets.com would tell me the truth. What do you think discount flight companies mean when they say “Last day to buy at this price”? Is it: “buy this today because tomorrow it WILL be more expensive” Or “buy this today because tomorrow it MAY be more…

Tiny Houses

A lot of attention has been devoted to tiny houses. And I think they’re adorable. They’re affordable and they speak to the true nature of what a living space should be. People shouldn’t live in absurdly large houses. It doesn’t foster intimacy. Let’s say you’re married or have a family, your children are physically far…

Stained Glass. The end of an era. #26 of Bucket List!

I feel emancipated. I’ve had my stained glass project from high school in my basement for the past 6 years. I was very excited to finish this in high school. I was the first person in my class to choose my pieces of glass, cut/saw them and copper foil them. It was like the rabbit…

Dream Board and the Universe, Part 1

Do you have too many old magazines!? Do you wish there was something you could do with them that’s fun for you and your friends? DREAM BOARDS There’s been a lot of talk about dream boards lately. The idea is: you rip out phrases and images from magazines and gluestick them all onto a board…

Death and Glory. And deadlines.

When I was 15, my friend Jessica and I decided we would make lists of things we’d like to do before we died. I really wish I had taken better care of that because I think I’ve done about half the list already! It’s actually on my livejournal, I just haven’t written in that in…

Yankee Punch Swap

My former boss who still works in the office, so, my co-worker, made a big fuss about us having a Yankee Swap because he thought it would instil animosity within the workplace. Feelings hurt, bruises, negative energy, etc.. Which is silly because we aren’t fourth graders. He also strangely suggested that if we went with…
