Snapchat valentines

Print your own snapchat valentinesNow’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.  Read on →

Painted paper trays

the-house-that-lars-built-painted-trays

Last week I featured our trip to Salvation Mountain over the holiday break. I was super inspired by colors and patterns of Leonard Knight’s painted mountain, which is covered with stripes and flowers and trees, everything my #CraftTheRainbow heart could desire. It felt like an explosion of everything going on inside my brain.

Like I mentioned last week in my State of the Blog Address, one of my goals that I’m choosing to focus on this year is keeping to my own inspiration, versus the floods of inspiration that come immediately from Pinterest or Instagram so I decided to put paint to paper after our trip. My sister had painted some plain papier mache trays out at my parent’s house and I quickly claimed them and applied some patterns and colors as inspired by Salvation Mountain (that’s what sisters are for, right?!). Because another goal of mine is to be more organized (like the rest of the world for the first month of the year) I’m using these trays for paperwork and such. I’ll let you know how it goes.Salvation MountainPainted paper trays
