cross my heart

2.24.2015
Look, look I embroidered this! I have been wanting to start embroidering things for a while and I finally made this! I am so excited about it. (If you can't tell, it's a heart with vines growing around it). Also I accidentally put it on the opposite side of my body but whatever let's pretend like I didn't do that. Also important: my beautiful powder pink matte nails and my Rocksbox ring from two posts ago.
 I feel like I have pretty solidly reached a "dgaf" kind of place in life and that's actually really exciting because I've pretty much proven I don't do things the traditional way and might not find a traditional job. But I like weird things and I like being different and I like making things and I want to continue on this path. I feel more myself than I have in the last year and I think it's because I am just embracing what I care about and realizing some goals are just not mine. 

Also for the last 24 hours I pretty much have been making this and watching the incredible miniseries Over the Garden Wall. It's a weird cartoon that I think I had a lot of influence on my heart design. It's amazing, watch it.

  2. Whaaaat, that heart is awesome! I definitely giggled over the fact that it's on the wrong side- that's something I would do.

    And go you for starting to slowly figure out what you want to do (or don't want to do). It's tough and takes a long time, but you'll get to it :)

  4. Excellent! It looks really wonderful! I just started embroidering too and it is so weirdly satisfying and calming. If it didn't give me a stiff neck from all those hours bent over my fabric I think I'd be doing it all the time! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
