DIY: Social Media Halloween Costume Idea: R.I.P. Vine

Vine Halloween Costume

A few years ago I made a social media frame costume that I’ve been updating each year to reflect a current social network at the time. A couple years ago I was Instagram (see that costume here), last year I was a Snapchat filter (see that costume here), and this year (after a great suggestion from my pal @ChrisHenderson) I decided to go as… VINE. DEAD VINE.  On Jan. 17,…

DIY Social Media: Snapchat Filter Halloween Costume (with Photoshop File!)

Snapchat Filter Social Media Halloween Costume

A couple of years ago I went as an Instagram frame for Halloween! It was a big success (it even got on Hootsuite’s list of clever social media costumes) and I think part of the success was because it suited my social media-lovin’ personality so well.  For 2016, I decided to be a Snapchat filter! There’s lots of different Snapchat filter costumes out there (lots of really cool make-up based ones!) but…

Edmonton Fall Home Show: Ultimate Upcycle Challenge (Cat Bed Chair)

Edmonton Home Fall Show - Upcycle Challenge

This fall I was invited to participate in the Edmonton Fall Home Show’s Ultimate Upcycle Challenge! I’ve been lucky to have been invited to try a few differentย DIY/crafty project challenges over the years (and hope that I’m getting better at it each time?) Recently I made a pretty pink wall hanging at a Make Shop Social workshop (and played in confetti). I’ve tried my hand at re-purposing a pallet supporting…

Bid on my terrarium at the 2015 Edmonton Home + Garden Show!

I am not overly crafty. Most of my creativity / work involves a computer / The Internet / a smartphone, etc. But I always love trying more crafty, artsy, hands-on DIY projects (even if it’s few and far between), so I was really excited when the Edmonton Home + Garden Show asked me to create a terrarium that would be auctioned off during the show (March 19-22, 2015) with proceeds…

DIY: How to make an Instagram Halloween Costume (with Photoshop file!)

For Halloween this year (2014), I decided to make my own Instagram photo costume! I had come across it somewhere online and thought, hey that should be easy to make (even for me! I’m not very IRL-crafty). I had looked online to see if there were any good DIY steps on how to make one and couldn’t really find anything great (most of them just showed photos of completed Instagram…

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean โ€œarmy stew!โ€ ๐Ÿœ Itโ€™s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (๐Ÿ˜), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I donโ€™t like beans so. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Love eating this with rice too!

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but Iโ€™m also totally comforted with any potatoes. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with โ€œangryโ€ aioli. ๐Ÿ˜ (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfireโ€™s bacon dish). Whatโ€™s your go-to comfort food?? ๐Ÿฝ
