Wrist Cuff Designs

While sitting at home, somewhat bored, I looked around to see what I could draw on. I had a burst of energy, artistically speaking.

Upon finding a plain, black leather bracelet (or, wrist cuff), I took out my silver marker and contrived the designs I thought would look best.

This is what I can up with...

Scars

We all endure tough times that leave painful scars, both on our bodies and on our hearts. Letting go of the past we despise is much harder than it should be. Learning our strengths and weaknesses is crucial to the process of moving on.

"Scars"

In my life, I've seen chaos and have experienced joy.
Through my heartache and through my happiness, I've also learned not to be a toy.

I've heard lies and I've told a few myself.
I've come a long ways with my feelings; never putting any of them on a shelf.

There will forever be a pain and a doubt that I cannot erase.
Regardless of what happens to my fragile dreams, I will always chase.

Looking forward is much harder than what I would hope.
The past smothers me to the point where it's difficult to cope.

My weary wings are too weak to fly very far.
Feeling alone in a crowd, I look at my many scars.

I remember too much and can't ever seem to forget the things I should.
If I could go back and redo some of what I regret in my life, I would.

People say you heal in time, but is it true?
The number of times I've recovered is too few.

Explaining the words my soul has to say...
It's not something that can be by the light of this day.

Collage Inspirations

In preparation for the upcoming county fair, I've sworn to display my creativity, whether it be a collage, poetry, photography, jewelry or clothing. I must put aside my feelings of procrastination and get started before time runs out.

I've found a few things on Tumblr that have helped inspire me with ideas for my steampunk/vintage collage. I plan to begin my artistic journey in making my collage today.

More Etsy Finds

As usual, I feel the need to update you all on my Etsy finds. Just when I thought I couldn't find anything cooler than what's already in my favorites, I end up finding more to love. For example...

I bought a new camera this past week with the tip money I saved up from my job. The camera strap I featured on here is something I'd like to purchase whenever I buy a bigger camera for various vacations in the future.
