I am having too much fun with this.
A couple weeks ago, I snagged some craft foam from a friend of mine. I had absolutely no plans for it, but the crafter in me wouldn’t let go. Then yesterday, I got this idea to cut letters and put a positive affirmation on the wall. Lo and behold – I HAD SOME CRAFT FOAM!
My favorite part of this is that the letters are completely freestyled and totally imperfect. For whatever reason, the backwards L felt right to me, just spontaneously and a little silly, and perfectly matching the saturated, primary school vibe of the colors. Also, aren’t kids the realest people you know?
BE REAL. With yourself. With the world. It is a mantra I live by and it felt important that these words reflected me: little skill in straight lines, a little goofy, and inexplicably bright. The type A in me tries to fight these not so perfect qualities all of the time. Even with this project, I agonized a little bit over not posting yesterday because this is supposed to be 13 straight days of posting. “Actually, it’s 13 days of crafting,” I had to remind myself. Full disclosure: I edited this post because I had a few more words on my spirit. I hope you don’t mind!
Check back tomorrow.
