Hi everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. I have been trying to come up with anything and everything to keep myself entertained during this crazy time (as I’m sure everyone has been doing). So I thought I would share some of the fun thing I have been doing with you all.
Tie dye clothing has quickly become very popular right now. People (including myself) have been starting to their own DIY tie dye projects for a fun activity these days. Because of this a lot of places online are sold out/low on tie dying kits and plain white sweatshirts/shirts. Going alone with that there is bleach tie dying, which is using bleach to lighten a dark fabric instead of dye. This was the method I used. I took an old sweatshirt, and cut off the hood and bottom. The next thing I did was start in the middle and twist the sweatshirt and secure it with 4 rubber bands. Then I used a half bleach half water solutions, put it on the sweatshirt. The first try I didn’t work very well, I think the bleach was just too old. I found another container and that one worked much better. I left it on for about an hour and half, you can just keep an eye on it till it reach my desired color. I rinsed the bleach out with cold water and put it in the washer & dryer. I did make a TikTok of how I made it, if want to see how I did it (here). Here is how it turned out!
Pick Up a New (or Old) Hobby
In high school I took a lot of art classes, and I loved painting and drawing. I took AP art my senior year, and I had one or two pieces of of art each week. When I went to college, I didn’t really have time so I stopped. That is until about a a week and a half ago! I pulled out my old art supplies and started on a new water color painting. I didn’t realize how much I missed! I have also started baking and cooking a lot over the past few weeks. I have made banana bread, cookies, brownies, risotto, and chicken potpie. I encourage you all to try something you haven’t done in a while or maybe something totally new! Here are some of my paintings I have been working on.
Have a Photoshoot
I wrote a whole blog post about at home photoshoot ideas (here). As a blogger, its hard to be confined to my house for pictures, so I have had to get a little more creative. I have had a lot of fun doing these fun photoshoots, and love how the pictures turned out. I can’t to try out some more fun photoshoots! Here are my favorites, check out the post for more!
Start a New Show
Netflix and Disney+ have quickly become my best friends. There are some new releases on both of them that are really good. I thought I would share some of my favorites shows I have watched on Netflix
