{Day 3} 30 Days of Creativity

A month ago, I posted a question on my personal facebook page for my friends:

There were a lot of great responses, but the one that stood out to me most was posted by my dear friend Laura, my college sorority sister and former roommate. She, too, has a passion for live music and I run into her at shows in the most random of places (Fargo, North Dakota). For those reasons, I decided to take her quote and turn it into a picture she could hang on the wall of her house or keep with her everyday.

{For Miss LBJ: I miss you to pieces and am so proud of all you have accomplished in your life. You are a bright and shining star and I can't wait to see what you do in the future. Cocktails on me next time you are in the Twin Cities. xoxo}

I would be remiss if I did not give credit for the wonderful photographer of this photo, Miss Shawna Carver. Living in Hawaii, she has the opportunity to photograph some amazing sunrises and sunsets. She's been more than awesome to let me use her photos from time to time. :)

If you're not familiar with this song, I highly recommend you take a listen and add it to your everyday play list: Awake My Soul by Mumford & Sons.


{Day 2} 30 Days of Creativity

I had a very unfortunate incident in late April {while I was interviewing for a part time job} involving a broken nail polish bottle, my keys, my wallet, cell phone and my purse. If you're reading this, imagine the worst, multiply it by 10 and you now understand exactly what happened and why I needed a new key chain.

I've been meaning to make a new key chain for some time, even before the nail polish incident, but kept putting it off. This was the perfect creative project for Day 2.

I present to you my new green and silver key chain:

When creating this key chain, many ideas went through my head, but one bead kept sticking out to me. This glass bead with green and gold accents. I wanted to fin something to compliment it without too much color, to still have the focus be the green and gold glass bead. After digging through my bead collection, I found this simple, unique clear glass beads and felt they complimented the key chain design perfectly. I added it to my keys immediately and have found it has been very easy to find in the bottom of my large purse everyday.

30 Days of Creativity {#30DoC}

While I was browsing through twitter yesterday, someone had retweeted this post by @CreateStuff:

I was immediately intrigued and poked around on Create Stuff's website. I was sold. I am going to participate in 30 Days of Creativity for June 2012. I have a number of projects lying around the house half-finished and many more that I have supplies for but haven't started.

For {Day 1}, I will be finishing my Minnesota Nail Art which was started in January.

I will be posting all of my creations to my 30 Days of Creativity Pinterest board as well. Look for my posting on June 1st for the final product!
