Best of February Roundup
In case you're new around here, once a month wraps up, I always like to take a quick look back and highlight some of my favorite projects. It's nice to see where I've been up to, and it also makes it easy for y'all to catch up on any posts you may have missed.
Let's take a look back at February!
I had fun experimenting with and repurposing plastic spoons to create this Valentine's Day heart garland. If there's a next time, I think I'll actually buy plastic spoons in the appropriate colors to avoid the mess of having to paint plastic (or buy some spray paint made for plastic). Hand painting was fine for this project, but if it needed to be durable or "chip-proof" at all, this certainly wouldn't have been the right paint!
I flexed my typography muscles and created some DC-shaped art for the city I love and will be leaving all too soon! If you love DC too, you can buy one of the prints from my Etsy shop.
Speaking of leaving DC, I detailed our next adventure in this state of the blog address. We're headed to Philadelphia this summer! Hello cheesesteaks and American history!
Y'all seemed to dig this round up of photography tips I pulled together in February, so I'll keep my eye out for more of those for a future post. I'm always eager to learn more and improve my skills, and apparently y'all are too!
I love the little West Elm-inspired makeover I gave my bedside table for the Be Bold Challenge. I'm so glad I took a risk on making the little wood tiles - they turned out even better than I imagined!
And finally, I showed off one of my tricks for keeping my office organized and my workflow efficient: magazine files! These little things are really hard workers in my tiny office area.
That wraps up February's favorite posts! I'll be back tomorrow with my favorite links from around the web this week!
