Well hello there,
It was almost a year ago that I started this blog.
It’s hard for me to remember who I was, what I wanted, where I was going, what I was doing back then. This past year has been a B L U R. A lot of shit went down last year, but honestly, when does it not? I remember the major details – where I went, who came in and out of my life, the health dramas, the changing of apartment and the changing of job. It’s crazy how when you’re in school time seems to CRAWL by, longing for the end of the Term and impending brakes. Once that formulaic structure is removed from your life, it’s like a ball rolling down a hill. Always trying to keep up with the pace, trying not to fall (at least too hard) … it seems much easier to miss what you are passing by.
I still feel lost and unsettled. I still feel like I know where I want to be but struggle to enjoy the time that it is taking to get there.
But overall I have a pretty positive outlook on the past year. A lot of growth, a lot of change, and if anything my unsettling feeling keeps pushing me to seek out where I am running to.
With the pace of things, I HAVE been crafting. Nothing crazy, nothing like I was before, but things have been made my loyal subjects. So don’t take offense to me posting my Halloween costume blog in the middle of February, but I have a short back log of things to get through before getting to the new. Hopefully my creative road block will open up by the time that happens. So thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back.
The Black Mamba
I am so sorry my crafty adventures have gone unchronicled for two weeks now. Life has taken ahold of me and I’ve been delving into many different endeavors. Some crafty, some crazy, but all things that have kept me away from my dear computer.
I am working on some projects for a few special upcoming June Birthdays…doesn’t it seem like your friend’s birthdays always have to come in clumps?? Anyway, I obviously cannot post the magic until the unique gifts have been gifted, so stay tuned!
In the meantime I will leave you with an awesome new thrifting find that I found at a vintage store this weekend. Unbeknownst to me, this vintage store was literally in my backyard the whole time and I had no idea!!
I picked up two items, one I will share with you today – a great pair of high waisted plaid shorts. Totally Ralph Lauren but not. I’m assuming they hail from the 60′s based on the styling, fabrication, construction and tag. It’s been super chilly for June, so I accessorized with my candy apple red turtleneck and denim jacket.
So hang tight while I get things in gear, and in the mean time…stay crafty my friends
Welcome to my world
conservation – creation – relation – conversation – crafting nation
This blog is a little bit of this, but mostly of that…that stuff that makes my world go round. In a world filled with chaos and over-saturation, I choose to forgo all of that silliness for a world of crafty creation. It’s the way that I can feel unique, independent, alive and pay back my debt for grinding for the Machine for a living.
I want to use this well exploited media form to catalogue my (mis)adventures in the world of DIY for myself and for the rest of ya’ll on the Internets. Some of my most favorite past projects, anything new that I do, inspiration, and random musings will all be compiled here. Overtime things will get a bit more organized, so hang on through the growing pains…
If revenge is a dish best served cold, then I hope this brings chills down your spine.
