Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket



It's a truth universally acknowledged that life can kinda suck. Especially nowadays, what with Covid, climate change, the Russian-Ukrainian war, and all the other problems humanity is struggling with, it's horribly easy to get lost in the darker sides of humanity, and forget about the light. So let's not forget. Let's remind each other of all the beautiful, whimsical, goofy, adorable, sparkly, touching, hilarious, extraordinary parts of life. 

Post random fun facts. Post cute pictures of your pets. Post artwork you've made. Post the fantabulous grade you got on that math test. Post what the sunset looked like last night. Post something, anything, that makes you smile. 

So when we can't see the light for the darkness, we'll make our own. We'll set the shadows alight with moonlight and sunrises and candle flames and fireflies.

Wow, how clever!  I really like this!  Did you come up with the idea yourself, and what book did you cut up?

Thank you! I was just messing around with random crafting supplies and came up with the idea of making a box. It's actually made from sheets of scrapbook paper, so I thankfully didn't have to cut up any books. (Though I was aiming for that made-of-books aesthetic, so I'm glad it worked).

That's a really good idea!  I'm glad you didn't have to chop up a book.  I balk at cutting up any book, even really outdated science textbooks and such.  You have inspired me, I like little boxes.

You know what would be cool? A box with book quotes on it!

Ohhhhh . . .  so pretty! I think that will be the type of fox I shift into occasionally!

Like a tortoiseshell cat, but a fox!

Positivity is important :) A lot of people need more of it in their lives. Thanks, Snazzycakes, for making this thread!
