I've been working on a project where I wood burn small wooden tokens with positive messages and leave them for people to find. Yesterday I turned one of my tokens into a pendant! www.somewhereoutthereproject.com
I spent the last two weeks (after work and during weekends) doing some graphic design for an awesome project called Tickleberry Place--a new eco-friendly indoor play gym that will be located in the community of South Los Angeles. It was one of the submissions for the LA2050 Grant Challenge that I voted for.
I'm proud of how the designs came out! What do you think?
I spent the night creating more of what I call my 'smiles'. I wood burn small tokens with motivational messages and then I leave them in random places for people to find in hopes that it will make them smile. I will get to put them out around Madison tomorrow.
I try to learn something new once a week! I've joined painting, calligraphy, plushies making, and baking classes. Not only did it help me get out of a rut I was stuck in, I gained a lot of skills in doing so. Plus it's very fulfilling to be able to accomplish things we didn't think we were capable of doing.
After about a year of periodically writing one or two sentences, I took this opportunity to fiiiiiinally finish writing my first spoken word poem. If you aren't familiar with spoken word or slam poetry, I highly recommend checking it out. Writing in itself can be an extremely cathartic process, and I always find myself wishing I wrote more rather than actually taking the time to sit down and put a pen to the paper.
