Pass time crafts: Memory Scarf and Wood Burning

Just a few projects I've finished during the summer in between work and sleep.

This memory scarf i made out of old t-shirts from everywhere between elementary school graduation to journalism convention shirts.

So I had a thin plank of wood and a burning kit, so I worked on a little thing there.

Photo Essay: "Follow the Signs"

I was driving one day to school when I thought I ran a stop sign. I suddenly became nervous, started to sweat and anxiously looked around to check for cops. It was early in the morning, the sun was barely rising, no one was out and there was no evident danger. I then realized, every day I take directions from all sorts of inanimate signs. I've been conditioned since birth to read and follow the directions. It may not always be evident, or necessary, but we all follow the signs.
