studio | almost makes perfect

i shared on instagram that i’m finally able to move into the studio! i’m moving in slowly and trying to figure out what furniture i need — but it’s soooo exciting to finally have my own space! my dad is coming to visit again this week, so i’m excited to have someone here to help me with moving. i’m also not into the superbowl but i’m into snacks so i’ll be doing a lot of that. have a good weekend!

guide to cabo san lucas | almost makes perfect

i actually wasn’t planning on doing a post on our trip to cabo because it was a family trip and we didn’t explore a ton, but then the other day i was like so what. i’ll share my tips anyway.

cabo wouldn’t be my #1 mexico destination of choice ( tulum is. duh. ) because it’s pretty touristy, but it was a really fun family trip because we were staying right on the beach and could do as many water activities as we wanted.

DIY gods eyes

DIY gods eyes | almost makes perfectDIY gods eyes | almost makes perfect

i’ve alwaaaays wanted to learn how to make gods eyes ( or mystical eyes? ), i went to summer camp for years and i somehow never learned! so i watched a tutorial video and i learned and it’s so easy and fun and kind of soothing too. then i thought — these would make a super fun galentines day activity (or gift for them). have your girlfriends over for wine and you just have to buy a few different colors of yarn and you’ve got yourself a real rager.

materials

  • yarn in various colors
  • wood dowels (you could also use bamboo skewers)
  • scissors

01. take two dowels and tie them into a cross with your first color of yarn.

02. keep them in place by wrapping your yarn around each side until they’re secured in position.

03. wrap over one dowel, and then around it — and repeat that. if you have a brain like mine, you might have to actually verbalize “over, around. over, around.” the whole time so you keep track.

04. when you’re ready to change colors, snip off the piece you’re working with, keeping a little length. tie it to your next color with a tight knot, and trim the excess off. do that anytime you want to change colors. if you feel like you can see where the colors meet, you can tuck the knots in at the end.

05. when you’re finished, knot the end really tight and trim the excess.

it’s totally a little kids craft, but i love it. it’s also super fun to see all the variations you can make with the same colors, so making them for galentine’s is like the best idea ever.
