after my post about projects inspired by free people this morning, reader krystee sent me these photos of some of her crafts and they’re so awesome i had to post them right away! check ’em out, along with her description of how she made them:
“the stool was inspired by your vanity stool you used to have in the FP store. i went to purchase one and they were gone so i did a lil twist on small decorative one for myself. i used some fabric from and old scarf and beach cover up and extra yarn from my crocheting, and added the flowers to give it that bright enchanted garden feel.”
“i found the bookshelf in my dad’s shed so i painted them and appliqued on fabric and added the yarn and flowers to make it pop.”
well we have come to the end of our first book club selection, jack kerouac’s on the road.
i’ve read the book several times, but this time i really took notice of the writing style. kerouac got a lot of criticism for his skill as a writer due to the fact that it was written in a creative burst over a span of a few weeks, in one continuous scroll. however, the content for the book was gathered from notebooks that he kept throughout the duration of his travels, and personally i think that the hurried, frantic nature of the text perfectly suits the subject matter. it captures the impulsiveness of the adventures that Kerouac and his friends embarked on and the freedom of being on the road without any real destination.
i leave you with this…
“our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. but no matter, the road is life.”
p.s. we’ll be picking the next book shortly, so stay tuned…
