(2.) In college, I liked to tell people that my life's back-up plan was to relocate to the Arizona desert, where I would live in a tent, grow my hair long, and sell hand-painted rocks by the roadside. I would chat up passing motorcyclists and RVing families on their way to the Grand Canyon, and watch the cactus shadows stretch across the ground in every evening's golden sunset. Now that I've gone and bought a home in Western PA, it seems less likely that I'll need that plan B, but this student's bed-sized home in Arizona (via design ark) has me reliving the dream.
(3.) These animated gifs by Omal Lu have me swooning. They're so full of breath. I wish I could find a way to have them as little moving wallpapers on my phone and laptop--they would make me smile all day. The 24 Solar Terms (via the fox is black)
(4.) I really love paper. And I'm currently doing some wedding planning, with an intention to DIY as many things as possible. I've had these Audubon-lined envelopes pinned for a while now, and they're pretty every time I look at them. Not sure how smart it will be to line 150+ invitation envelopes this way, but...I've definitely taken on crazier crafting projects. (pinned from real weddings)
