All Is Full Of Love Notes

April 28, 2017     Like This Post!

As I’m sure I’ve shared before, everywhere I turn, there’s some form of wall art or graffiti that’s so photogenic. That’s one thing I love about this city. Lately it feels as if I’ve been coming along large mural-like pieces or truck graffiti. More so the truck graffiti but I rarely am able to snap a picture because they’re always driving by. Only when they’re parked.

Cool Links Via The Internet

April 24, 2017     Like This Post!

The Internet is full of so much greatness. I come across so many great links and videos that I don’t know what to do with – the type you just need to share. So here’s a small list of links and videos I recommend.

01. Saddest Calendar on the Internet: A Daily Tracker of Trump’s Damage – Pretty much self explanatory. This calendar keeps you up to date with the daily actions Trump has been making, which is frustrating but informative. It’s the kind of news we need to keep up with so we know what we’re fighting for. Everyday there seems to be something new we need to fight for. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get exhausted.

02. This Guy Turns OCD Hoarding Into Amazing Photos – Photographer Jim Golden photographs objects into collections in such an organized fashion. I love flat lays that are so organized amazingly like this. I appreciate how he groups similar items together. It’s just so fun…and so damn well organized.

The 90s was a great era for music. Emerging genres, movements, new voices, etc. It will always be my favorite music period. That’s for sure.

One of my favorite underground genres was trip hop. Never heard of it? I don’t blame ya, not many people have. Think of the House theme song. Massive Attack is a major contributor to trip hop.

Throwback Jean Jacket

April 19, 2017     Like This Post!

A few years ago, I remember attempting to submit a DIY project to this magazine. Can’t even remember which magazine it was, but it never got accepted. Along with passing due to my bad photography skills, I’m sure they also got loads of submissions. But I thought it didn’t hurt trying anyway. I try to remind myself what’s the worst that could happen? You shouldn’t hold yourself back just because you think you won’t get what you’re after. So I did what I could and submitted anyway.

Well, every so often I come across the folder on my computer with the pictures I took and I figured I’d share a throwback. Besides, it’s jean jacket weather and I’ve been wearing my jean jacket for a couple of weeks now, so this was a DIY that was worth it.

I remember buying this jacket with the intention of sewing something on the back. Just like usual, I gathered a bunch of material and winged it. I let the fabric guide me. 😜

Tarot To-Go // April 17 – April 23

There’s been a lot of nutty energy the last couple of weeks — life’s been one crazy roller coaster! Emotional highs and lows coupled with some major changes in our foundations have got many of us looking at clean slates. Basically every planet but Mars and Uranus was either in retrograde, about to enter it, or going direct which really amplified the WTF vibe. But I have great news, gang — this week is going to rock!

Let’s have a peek.

In the beginning of the week LOVE BEGINS. This is a fresh week and a clean slate, too, and the changes we have been afraid of making will start to look like hidden gems. If we can learn to love that which we resist, we’ll be golden! Just remember what The Rolling Stones said; you can’t always get what you want but if you try sometimes you might find you get what you need.

This To That // Round Wallet Paint Job

April 12, 2017     Like This Post!

I’m all about little fix ups here and there when I can find opportunities. Especially with fabric paint. I really swear by this stuff. I’ve used it on clothes, shoes, jackets, wallets, and even surfaces that aren’t fabric. The paint lasts long, and the squirt bottle is so useful if you want to use paint right out of the bottle. The only time this paint let me down was on velvet/velour fabric. It makes sense because velvet has a raised fuzzy texture that causes the paint to crack. But besides that, I’m obsessed with fabric paint.

So with that said, I bought this round wallet a few months ago. I’ve been into round bags and such lately; they’re so visually appealing. I didn’t like the decoration on this wallet though. I wanted to put a patch on it but in the end, I couldn’t commit to a patch. I thought if I painted my usual squiggles and whatever, it would still look nice.
