Easter weekend // and thank you…

// 1000threadsblog.com
You guys… I’m not sure where to start, except to say that you’re wonderful and I love you all. Thank you so much for your kind, funny, heartbreaking, sincere, amazing words on my post yesterday. It’s not always easy to hit publish, but you’ve reminded me exactly why I do. So thank you, so much.

And to those of you going through a similar time, I’m always here if you need a talk or a drink or a big vat of ice cream — I wish I was closer to some of you, I’d bring you one right now. Feeling like a failure sucks a lot, but we all go through it, and it’s so much easier to pick yourself up and dust yourself off when you know you’re not alone.

Have a wonderful Easter/Passover weekend! I’d love to hear all about your plans!

Eye this bright, lovely home.

Buy something to save your lips — if they’re anything like mine, they suffer when the seasons change.

Make this sunny spring weaving for your front door or wall.

Bake some simple baked eggs (eggs, Easter… it all just makes sense).

I loved loved looooved Kate’s post about “should” vs. “must.”

Frank Bruni argues that women are stick stuck with an unequal lot that goes far beyond pay.

This dripped concrete planter is pretty brilliant.

So are these copper air plant holders.

And right now I’m seriously craving some of these.

    So much beauty here.

    And as for your post yesterday, you are wonderful and lovely and awesome and inspirational and don’t let anyone or anything stop you! Seriously!! I have had so many doors slammed in my face… but that only lead to other opportunities that I would have other wised overlooked. When it comes to school I’ve learned that you can’t take it personally. It all has to do with timing, in my opinion. I applied for the MFA program at the school I graduated from for my BFA. I had a great portfolio, experience, letters of recommendations from TWO professors who were also department heads at said school… and I was rejected. Everyone I told was shocked. I thought I was a loser with no chance at happiness ever again. But that isn’t true. I’ve had so many amazing moments since then. It even led me to get my MAE, something I didn’t think I had the strength to do. And I’m even thinking of applying to the program again within the next two years because maybe now it’s my time.

    And as for instagram, honey, I lose 123, gain 5, lose 12, gain 50. Don’t let the numbers halt you. The best thing to do is to keep posting for yourself because you love it and love expressing yourself!

    I know it isn’t always easing looking on the bright side and staying strong, heaven knows I need constant reminding. But if you have something in your heart that you know you need to do, don’t give up until you do it…

    To a big tub of ice cream and kicking their asses. Have a wonderful weekend, beautiful lady.

    hey laicie, I missed your post yesterday cause I’ve been busy at my aunt’s funeral over the last few days. but I just went back to read and boy did you strike a chord. thank you for the honesty! I smiled a little to myself when I read the instagram part, “where mediocre bloggers go to die” is what I’ve been thinking about my own ig account, and it’s funny that someone (you), whom I think has a great blog, struggles with the same thoughts. hugs about the schools, that sucks, but ice cream is good 😉

    I’ve been struggling with feeling like my creative journey (blog + design work) is not only stuck, but slowly sliding backwards. Just a constant two steps forward, three steps back. That’s on top of figuring out going back to school (on a gap year) and tearing my hair out over wedding plans. Every time I feel punched in the gut, I have to remind myself to learn that life is funny this way. Just because things seem like they’re in the bag, like everything is going to be okay.. well life just doesn’t work that way. And you’re right, I got to keep my head down and keep working on it.

    Maybe I’ll get to the elusive “there” some day, and maybe I never ever will. But I’m still going to keep working as hard as I can.
