New papercut banner and a selfie

I’ve been planning on making my own banner for this blog for the longest time and I was finally able to do it today!

Incorporated some DIY elements like stitches, DIY tools (pencil, scissors, a paintbrush) and my very own merbird and cursive handwriting. It’s also inspired by balloons because I like ’em and they commemorate my eternal state of hyperactivity. I’m hoping they’d remind me to stay hopeful and positive eternally too.

Inspired by Mansy’s self-portrait and that I Made Face app, I made a papercut version of mah face and my favorite expression:

I’m planning on challenging myself by making a papercut of one of my favorite quotes. To be honest, I’ve always had the worst handwriting ever, and it pulled down my average grade back in grade school because I always got seventy somethings in penmanship, haha :

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.“- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wish me luck!
