Tech-less Crafting Weekend :)

A few weeks ago, I embarked on a brave new journey. I decided to stay at home and—wait for it—not use my phone or my laptop or even the tv. *gasp* All year, I've been connected more than ever, with emails and alerts from my school or professor stressing me out, group projects to be coordinated, and  all my best friends to be kept in touch with.

Suddenly, it really started to feel like too much after all. So, I cleared my schedule, stashed my tech in an obscure cabinet and settled down with some Vivaldi, Austen and a list of crafts to be completed. Bliss.

Here's what I created during my tech-less weekend…

A pretty quick and easy update of a run-of-the-mill clutch. Pretty much just removed that boring old button and superglued some robin's egg blue (broken) earrings in its stead.

I usually hate nail art but, this once, I gave it another shot and voilĂ ! I fell in love with with style I found on beloved Pinterest

And that's a quick (not really) garland I made from dusty old flowers someone brought to the hospital when my brother was born, an age and a half ago!

Also, I had a darling friend over for tea. That's right, a good old fashioned tea! We made some surprisingly good mug cakes—desserts I am determined to perfect and master.

So, in conclusion, I'd say I'm hardly a technophobe (I am a millennial, aren't I?) but I must admit, there were more than a few moments where I wanted to snap up my phone or to log onto Pinterest or even just catch up with the news. But, I resisted and oh, it was so worth it!

Will I be trying this again? Heck yeah!


  1. I need to do this myself. A weekend away from technology. Good idea!

    1. Do! It is so refreshing! (And makes for a great personal experiment) :)
