Day 23: My fab-tastic friend Dolly Bee shared my day of creativity with me this afternoon. We watched another nature documentary, ate lunch and began cutting out pieces of fabric for a super rad bright blue polka dot dress that she's going to help me make. I've never used a sewing pattern before so I'm … Continue reading Scrap Fabric Framed Art
Day 22: Today I got a burst of inspiration and motivation to cook an actual dinner. I say 'actual' because lately, I've been so fatigued and distracted that I've been eating bagels and cream cheese, or cereal, or a random-selection-of-whatever-is-in-the-cupboard. It was rainy and a bit cooler out today so thought making something warm and … Continue reading Mexican Vermicelli Soup & Watermelon Granita = foodgasm
My late night snack as art.
Day 20: We had finished making dinner at work today and as we were starting to clear the dishes, I peeked out the window and noticed the trail of a plane through the clouds and how stunning the sky looked - so many different textures and patterns, with gloomy accents and hints of pink & … Continue reading The View From Here
Day 19: Our favourite show (half jokes/half serious) is OLN's Mantracker and we watch it every Sunday night. So to honour this love and to honour my love on this fine Sunday evening, I whipped open good ol' MS Paint to create this gem/mess 🙂 What's been your most favourite MS Paint creation?
Day 18: Today I made some lip balm. It's fun and simple to make, trust me. So much, that you won't want to buy it from a store again! I've made lip balm before, but thought I'd spice it up this time (ohhh witty). Here is a simple recipe from this awesome book if you're … Continue reading Honey Orange Spice Lip Balm
I haven't been home much these past couple of days, so my posting on time has really been sucking. My creative project for yesterday was a bit different and less tangible than usual - really, it was an experience rather than an object. My friend Charlotte called me up yesterday morning with a hilariously intriguing … Continue reading Try This: 90’s Style Murder Mystery Cocktail Soiree
Today involved a lot of sleeping and recovering. Even more exciting though, it involved more nature documentary viewing and making iced tea with my awesome partner in crime, emma! My day 16 is nothin' too fancy due to the first two actions listed, but it was definitely satisfying. We didn't have time to steep the … Continue reading Day 16: Homemade Peach Iced Tea
Yesterday was such a beautiful day (until I got too much sun + not nearly enough water = got really dizzy and sick). I made two trips to the market. The first time I randomly met up with a few lovely friends who I rarely see these days. I wasn't early enough to score any … Continue reading Food For Your Belly, Food For Your Skin
For day 14, I finally completed a project that I had started a few days ago. I had to give up on it because handstitching stretchy cotton fabric is the worst! I bought this really plain cotton dress last summer with the intention of stitching an applique to it to make it snazzier and add … Continue reading So very fawn-ed of this dress now 🙂
