Today’s early morning #creative #project: I’ve been having lotsssss of feelings lately (mostly good, some bad), so I decided to #mend the torn #seam on my beloved #books and #feelings #tote #bag. Can you tell I don’t actually know how to #sew and sort of haphazardly followed a YouTube tutorial? I’m going to call this #frankenstitching. And yes, it’s visible on purpose because I had “don’t you feed me lies about some idealistic future / your heart won’t heal right if you keep tearing out the #sutures” in my head as I did this.

Things you do not expect to see (or squawk “hello” at you) while walking past factories and warehouses in #industrial #Brooklyn: a #cockatoo in a #cage on the sidewalk outside a garage selling screenprinted t-shirts. #parrots #birds #birdsofinstagram #putabirdonit #keepingitweird #sunsetpark (at Sunset Park, Brooklyn)

Well, I suppose if the doctor’s office is going to take forever to get you in to see a nurse and then tell you that you’re going to have to wait an hour while the doctors go take lunch, taking a walk and finding this view is not a bad way to pass the time. That little green speck underneath the big cloud on the right is Lady Liberty.

These #paper #flowers are seriously my new favorite thing. So easy too! Thanks again @gypsywidget for showing me how to make them. Used a paper towel and twine from the coffee shop to make this one on the fly instead of Kleenex and a stapler.  #crafts #handmade #papercraft #pretty (at Roots Cafe)

Needed a little #arttherapy this morning, so I decided to #draw and #paint a couple of my #nailpolish #bottles instead of actually painting my nails. Materials: #ballpoint #pen, #watercolor #pencils, #glitter/#holographic nail polish. I guess this is a different take on #nailart, huh?

#Sunday #Funday #Craft Time: earning how to make #tissue #paper #flowers with Jess (@gypsywidget) and Helena. So easy and pretty! (at South Slope, Brooklyn)

Ok, I’ll admit it. I totally revel in being that mysterious pseudo hipster girl drawing things by herself with her markers strewn about at a fancy hotel bar. The one who doesn’t quite belong but somehow happens to fit in unassumingly. (at The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York)

Girls’ Night turned into a #coloring fest after dinner. I let @longdebo work her magic on Ryan Gosling, who I’ve been neglecting, while I spent some time with Edward Gorey. Nice #color palette, Deb! A+.

Another impromptu #Indian #dinner! But this time a *much* needed Girls’ Night with @victoriaqnerdballs, @longdebo, @gypsywidget and Helena. Peas pulao, mung beans, and spinach with corn. #food #foodstagram #meals #cooking #madebyfarah

#TBT: my mom and dad’s #wedding. Those are my aunts in the background and, believe it or not, all my #cousins pictured have (or are about to have!) kids of their own. #family #mom #dad #beforemytime #colorful #indian #memories #pictureofapicture

I think I just found heaven on earth for #dog lovers. Have parked myself under a tree and am just going to sit here and read and color and write for a bit while these lovelies run around. #prospectpark #parkslope #dogs #love #happyplaces #brooklyn  (at Prospect Park (Nethermead))
