The daily card, week 42

Hi there! I am falling off the regular blogging wagon until the end of the year as I work on some other projects - but I will still plan to share the remaining weeks of the daily card project.

My favorite by far is October 24, which is a washi-tape recreation of the Anthropologie dress that I wore to a friend's engagement party. My least favorite - like, possibly of the entire year - is October 21. I like the concept but the execution did not work and it looks like a Claire's catalogue threw up on a graffiti wall. But the quote is from Elizabeth Gilbert's fantastic podcast and her advice to stay present and find inspiration in what's around you, however mundane. On a similar note, October 19 is inspired by the alt-text of this comic, which I think of when I get bogged down in stuff at work that probably doesn't matter too much in the scheme of things.

And for another creative playing card project, I recommend Austin Kleon's steal strategies.

As a creative challenge, I am decorating a playing card every day in 2015. More context on this project is here and you can see all past card posts here.
