Now’s as good of a time as any to proclaim my love for Snapchat, or “The Snaps” as I like to call it. Up until I started to use it a few months ago I had only heard terrible things about it. Like it’s for teens to take nakkie photos of themselves. BUT, like all forms of social media, adults have slowly started to realize the joys of it and have latched on. And immediately, the teenagers skiped town (but maybe not. Paul just sent me this article. Ha! I think because he’s mostly ashamed of my antics). Whereas Instagram is a place for beautiful pictures, Snapchat is a place for not pretty pics ie: my hair when I wake up. To me, it’s my “safe place” for dancing, singing, karaoking, rambling, and showing you the goings on in the world of Lars. I say “safe place” because I don’t actually believe that people watch my videos, though I know they do, so I tend to act in a way that I don’t think anyone is watching. As they say “dance like no one’s watching” and on Snapchat, I do.
The other day I told my snapchat friends that I had too many valentines from all the printables we’ve been doing (Full House, David Bowie, Salvation Mountain, chocolate covered cinnamon bears ) so I told them I’d send them one if they sent me their address. As I started to think about it, I thought it would be so much for to give them the gift of my bedhead. There’s this thing I do where I take pic of my hair before I go to bed because it’s generally in braids all day with gallons of hair spray. This is a little taste:
And then when I wake up in the morning:
THEN I go to thinking how easy Snapchat really is to make your own valentines because 1) you can add text 2) you can add emojis 3) you can use their fun face transformations to create characters 4) you can save them and 5) you can print them off.
Here’s what I came up with:
And if you send me your address, I’ll happily send you one as well.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

EDIT: as I was searching for a way to link directly to Snapchat, I noticed that HGTV named me as a “Designer to follow on Snapchat.” Looks like there’s more of you than I realized…guess it’s not a secret spot.
