Last week I ordered some sparkly hair pins to give as a gift to one of my friends, but unfortunately, the day they arrived, my mail was stolen! We lost the hair pins, a big (now cashed) check from a client, and who knows what else. PSA: Don’t steal people’s mail!
I’ve never made anything involving electricity before, and I didn’t really know how, but thankfully my dad is the king of all things circuits, wires, soldering, electricity, blah blah blah, and he was willing to help! After my dad helped me make the first lamp, I was basically able to make the second lamp on my own — giving me hope that I can make some more for my own home and hopefully explain the process well here.
I finally did the DIY I’ve been dreaming of for the last couple of months — I transformed a boring mini fridge into a retro-style pop of color! I have wanted a little turquoise fridge ever since they started trending a couple of years ago, and our very regular late night snacks (does 3am count as “late night”?) means we actually needed one, right?
Amidst my declutter frenzy the other day, I came across a little pack of elastic (or so I thought) and the idea dawned on me to try to make my own scrunchies! It turns out the pack I had found was just elastic-looking string with no stretch whatsoever, but luckily I found some actual elastic halfway through the project, and hey — glad the non-elastic string still sparked the idea!
It took me a couple of years of trying different editing techniques before I felt like "okay, I'm good at this." I remember even 3 years ago, Nathan had to convince me that Lightroom would save so much time (I was even thinking of editing an entire wedding in Photoshop -- what?!) and now I can't believe I even questioned him. I was just intimidated to learn a new program, though, to be honest. I've never been the best about getting ahead of the game on new software and technology etc.
Lately I've been seeing many posts on social media where people are upset that their videos have been taken down for copyright reasons. A lot of times it's people who have credited the artist and don't have any intention of "stealing" the song…
