13 days of making | day two


I am having too much fun with this.

A couple weeks ago, I snagged some craft foam from a friend of mine. I had absolutely no plans for it, but the crafter in me wouldn’t let go. Then yesterday, I got this idea to cut letters and put a positive affirmation on the wall. Lo and behold – I HAD SOME CRAFT FOAM!

My favorite part of this is that the letters are completely freestyled and totally imperfect. For whatever reason, the backwards L felt right to me, just spontaneously and a little silly, and perfectly matching the saturated, primary school vibe of the colors. Also, aren’t kids the realest people you know?

BE REAL. With yourself. With the world. It is a mantra I live by and it felt important that these words reflected me: little skill in straight lines, a little goofy, and inexplicably bright. The type A in me tries to fight these not so perfect qualities all of the time. Even with this project, I agonized a little bit over not posting yesterday because this is supposed to be 13 straight days of posting. “Actually, it’s 13 days of crafting,” I had to remind myself. Full disclosure: I edited this post because I had a few more words on my spirit. I hope you don’t mind!

Check back tomorrow.



13 Days of Making



Long time, no? Well I’m finally on break from school and I have 13 days to do whatever I want. (get wrecked) Nah, I’m probably going to study at least half of those days, but I also want to challenge myself to put in hours making and what better way to track that but through the blog. Join me!

Day 1 – A few days back I noticed that I jacked up a cable more than a few rows back. Luckily some insta friends recommended I rip back only the cable. Never done this before, but so far, so good!
