Monday, March 28, 2016



In case anyone was wondering how well I was doing with my 2016, ambitions, the answer is not too hot.



2015 BUCKET LIST

  • learn how to properly do calligraphy - I have a book! it's in the works. 
  • complete this ways to be more intentional with people list - er. I'm doing alright.
  • do all nineteen things on this list by myself   -  I'm doing alright here, too.
  • learn how to properly fill in my eyebrows - they still look awful.
  • make a new friend - this is so hard!

Life Updates

Monday, March 14, 2016



I know I haven't been posting very much but I have a really valid excuse : school.  Yes, I know I complain about it wayyyyyy too much (this is going to be the last time. I'm going to try really hard, I promise.)  Now school wasn't the only reason, but it was definitely the main one. Midterms were killer.

I've been stretching myself too far. I've had work; I've had school stuff (more than normal); I've had traveling; and  I've been working with cut out + keep again (!!!). I've also been trying really super duper very hard to change my major to graphic design. If I stay where I am now, it would take me an extra two years to finish college. No, thank you. If I transfer, it's going to cost a looot more money and my parents aren't all to keen on that.

Anyways, I'm going to stop complaining about school so much and learn to balance my time better. I will keep posting but maybe not as frequently as I once was. Or maybe I will. We'll see. I hope you all understand and can find it in your hearts to forgive me.

Oh! I'm trying to buy a real camera. It absolutely will not be a fancy expensive camera (college sucks your money dry), but it will definitely be better than a phone camera. Happy Monday, fellas.

DIY Wooden Box Makeover

Wednesday, March 2, 2016


     I got THE BEST presents for Valentine's day. A buttload of loose leaf tea, two clay cups, a kettle, and a tea pot. I decided I need a tea box to hold my bagged tea to match my new gear. I made the other box to hold my new fancy cups. 


materials
wooden boxes (I got mine on sale at Target, but they aren't sold online)
paint and paint brushes
(pretty) paper


step 1. spray paint the clasp any color you would like. I chose gold.

step 2. paint the boxes!  (be extra careful around the clasp.) I made my plum colored one  look streaky, and  I splattered the teal by brushing a paintbrush across my finger.
