Well, hello Friday. Today is the first day of my weekend, and I am antsy to go and start some chores so this evening and the next two days can be relaxing and creatively productive. I’m also excited to resume my Friyay posts, and give you a small sampling of some things that have made me happy this week.
I’ve often though about decorating some glass Dollar Tree vases, but not really considered polymer as a viable medium with which to do it. So when I saw this tutorial on my timeline, I was thrilled. I’m looking forward to designing something (the leaves are nice, but it can be literally anything) and giving it a shot in the coming weeks.
To Watch/Get Hype About
So I don’t know who else is a Steven Universe fan, but I am a huge SU fan and I am so excited for the movie (still a little salty that Teen Titans GO got a theatrical release and SU is relegated to TV, but you know what? Let’s not dwell, right?) This is kind of a silly trailer, but it makes me happy some stuff is finally getting released about the movie, and with San Diego Comic Con coming up in the next couple of weeks, I’m hoping more info and more sneak peaks will be available soon.
(Two very different things.)
Poetry: “Woman with Button Earrings,” by Lily Hicks (Age 14). Rattle is my go-to poetry source, and I love when they feature and profile young poets. This poem in particular is very much my aesthetic — and was, even more so, as a teenager — and evokes the kind of imagery and atmosphere that I longed to be able to produce myself at 14, and rarely could.
Fanfic: “Archangel of Healing,” by Nnm (Good Omens). Ugh, my fucking heart. I will consume, at any time of the day or night, literally anything in the “Crowley was Raphael Before He Fell” tag, and this one was recommended by Shippers Guide to the Galaxy, and is well worth the read.
What’s lifted you up this week?
