Ah, art… :)


You know what else is like diets?  Art.  Creativity.  At least for me.  I always promise myself that I’ll get to it soon.  Soon soon….

I have a list as long as my arm of art projects I want to do.  These include:

Make a wire cup rack for my awesome collection of Einstein Bros Bagels mugs! (they’re only $2.59 at the shop on campus, AND you get 99cent coffee thereafter, so they’ve become a surrogate for the shoe fetish I never had)

Making my awesome collection of sarees into wall art (I bought a ton of them in India this winter w/ my fiance’s family, and now they’re just sitting on a shelf! Ugh!

Making a shower curtain out of plastic bags (yep, you can totally iron plastic bags together to make tarp-like material! Free shower curtain!!!

Making potporri

Making more chapstick (I made this in ’09 w/ a friend and we had chapstick for a year! It was awesome!

Using up my huge supply of tea tree oil (my grandmother gave it to me, but I just don’t have much of a use for it! dang!)

And not last and not least (but the last I remember at the moment):  Making things out of he old books I get for free at the UChicago library book sales.  Yes, they’re old and they’re beautiful–some of them are from the early 1900s and even the mid to late 1800s, but still, what the hell am i going to do w/ all those books?!  I have so many!!!

Anyway, here is my inspiration for today:

Things to do with old books
