Happy Sunday.

14 Oct

A few days ago I shared a picture of a watercolor thing I made and I finally found a quote I liked. I drew it up and was pretty happy with it then attempted to put it on my watercolor.

Since I had no way of transferring it, it turned out horribly. =[. I’ll have to work on that…

How well are your kerning skills?

Cool design blog.

Today I made stuff.

I’ve been looking for some old frames for quite some time and today I found one! There was a couple projects I had in mind for old frames. One was to put sticks in. Hah. I’m not done yet because I need to buy a more efficient glue.

Here’s the work in progress. No I did not spray paint it on the table, in our tiny studio apartment (okay, I tried..).

At the same cool/weird thrift store I was at I found this cool mirror.

Rainy days are best for..

13 Oct

Rainy days are best for sitting at home, drinking coffee, and attempting to get crafty.

Rainy days are best for finding strange stuff on Etsy.

Not that this lady didn’t do a fantastic job on what I imagine are shrinky dinks…..just a little creepy.

Rainy days are best for exploring new apps. Like Craftsy.

I don’t really do a whole lot of these types of crafts but I like to attempt jewelry stuff and i don’t know, maybe some of it looks cool. I just really liked the idea of the app. Youre able to subscribe to classes and then can watch videos about what you subscribed to. And it’s all free!

Rainy days are best for sitting down to actually finish a project. Something I rarely do.
Here’s my inspiration for the day..

You should definitely look at the rest of this.

All of these.

What are rainy days for you?

Terrific Tuesday?

9 Oct

I get television tomorrow after a horrible 5 month break. So today I must finish all my projects before I get super distracted. Probably won’t happen but here’s what I’m aiming to doing today..

I made this cool watercolor thing the other day just playing around. Now I’m looking for a quote to put on it. For some reason my mind keeps seeing it in the bathroom and looking for quotes the first one I saw was ‘quit slackin and make shit happen.’ Ha. Ha. My day has been too dull…

Here’s some stuff..

This is a very cool concept. ‘Wind Drawing’, what a creative way to keep track of the weather or something.

I feel the need to share this recipe. I finally made something and it tasted so good. Not that it requires any skill but you’d be surprised the things I mess up..

Watercolor under my nails.

7 Oct

Yesterday on Pinterest I saw these really cool watercolored business card so I had to try and I’m pretty excited about it.

20121007-091840.jpg
Not bad huh? But now I have all these cards I’m not sure what to do with…
Here is the original.

And for today I think I’m going to make this out of thread. Except I only have printer paper left so well see how this works out.

This project. Very cool concept to remind you walking is good.

This very cool DIY lamp. It’s made out of tape.

And a cool blog if you feel like surfing.

Just got The Elements of Graphic Design from my library. Graphic Design books are so hard for me to read. I just love all the pictures.
Going to go finish my breakfast and watch the rest of the sunrise. Have a good day!

Just kidding about the ‘A’ on the right. Started this yesterday. Excited to finish and upload my first font. It’s kind of harder than I thought but I’m having fun.

Now accepting font names..
