DIY: Custom Printed Dresses

summer colors woven paper dress

Maybe this is news to no one, but did you know you could have super cute dresses printed from your own photographs? I only found out over the weekend and it continues to blow my damn mind. Isn’t technology amazing, you guys? WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT?

Needless to say, I’ve been very busy ripping up construction paper and taking pictures to create my own, one-of-a-kind prints. Look at me! I’m a textile designer!

If, unfortunately, your calendar is wall-to-wall conference calls, Google hangouts, Skypes, in-person “pow-wows,” or whatever VR/AR/hologram group-communication technology the kids are into these days, please don’t despair. We made you some Conference Call/Meeting Bingo Cards.

They won’t solve the problem of too many meetings, but maybe they’ll make them a smidge more bearable? Maybe even a little fun? Perhaps you’ll look at them and think, “Ah, yes! I thought I was the only one, but another knows my pain. The burden is shared and therefore lessened.”

Follow Me To Certain Doom

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 1.52.58 PM

I have a new personal project. It’s been a rough sort of year so far, and I’m looking for ways to make my daily life more fun, more interesting, more ridiculous.

So, I started a new blog/game called Follow Me To Certain Doom – workplace challenges to make your day more interesting.

Each week, I’ll post a new challenge for you to undertake at work. I’ll provide rules and scoring criteria. I’ll even provide a spreadsheet you can use to calculate your scores.

I just posted the second challenge last night and, so far, the response has been awesome. Complete strangers have been sending me images of their challenge results for me to post to the FMTCD Instagram. EXCITEMENT!

Please check it out. If you like it, join the FMTCD Challenge Alert mailing list.

Twitch Felt Club

I’ve been teaching my colleagues – at a large, SF-based tech company in no way associated with crafting – to needle felt. They’ve been surprisingly enthusiastic and their output so far has been awesome. Pics!

DIY: Holiday Gift Wrap

This is my present for our office’s white elephant gift exchange. The content of the present is a story unto itself, but the wrapping is a tasteful affair consisting of post-it notes, scotch tape and a festive gingerbread man for an extra touch of pizazz. You’re welcome, internet.

The Wayback Machine – REPOST: OMG A Post About Shoe Care

To spruce up this new blog with a little content, please find below what proved to be a surprisingly popular post on my now defunct self-improvement blog which I started…oh, about this time last year. Ha…. That’s not gonna happen with this blog. No, sir. […shifty eyes…]

When I was a little girl, all I wanted to be when I grew up was 5 foot 9.

The first of many adulthood disappointments, I only grew to 5 foot 7.

To compensate for my shortfall [heyo!], I wear a lot of high-heeled shoes. As you may have read in a previous post, I really enjoy looming over others — just standing there, kinda menacingly but with no expressed malice. I am also keen on the fact that one’s shoe size remains fairly static, however one’s weight may fluctuate. In summary, shoes are awesome and we should all buy a bunch of them. Yay!

Anywho, in the dual interests of protecting my investments and making them bearable to walk in, I have assembled the following tiny arsenal of products…

Sanity Savers

Another day, another million little hassles. Paper cuts, shoe scuffs, running out of toilet paper — it’s a wonder you can overcome the paralyzing fear of what new terrors await you in the world and even get out of bed in the morning. I applaud you, ladies and gentlemen, for having the courage and perseverance simply to exist. Clap, clap, clap.

I, too, find everyday existence kind of a struggle. It’s the little things that get you, you know? Well, today I’d like to share with you three simple solutions to those little things that get you. These items help spare my sanity on a daily basis.
