Hi, scarf lovers!!
How is 2012 treating you?? We’re loving it so far at the Scarves Dot Net HQ, and we want to keep the love alive by creating a 2012 Time Capsule!
I know, I know… it’s still pretty early in the year, but there’s a lot that we want to remember! We’re putting together our own internet time capsule of things we’re currently obsessing over, from celeb crushes to our favorite websites. We’re also doing this to help us remember what Scarves Dot Net was like at the beginning of 2012 — because big change is a comin’!
Hurry and check out what we’re throwing in, because we’re about to bury it — for five years! (Once the ground unfreezes a bit…)
How many times has Facebook changed since you signed up? I know I can’t count, so I’m including a screenshot of my Facebook page in the time capsule. It’ll be pretty cool in five years to look back and say, “Whoa, I totally remember when they launched Timeline! It seems like so long ago…” I’ve also thrown in “New New Twitter,” and our beloved AffordableScarves.com and Scarves.net homepages. ♥
- Maggie V is crazy for SEO Ryan Gosling. Actually, we all are!!
- Maggie T is showing off the new Facebook timeline. What will it look like this time next year?
- Molly’s loving Atlantic Pacific, and of course, fashion mags!
- Sarah H is showing off her super cute, super cool blog, TulleandTrinkets.com.
- Stacie loves a lot of things, and some of them are her blog Stars for Streetlights, HelloGiggles.com, and the adorable Zooey Deschanel (and today is Zooey’s birthday!!!).
- And Maggie still can’t stop photobombing ;)
Current Celeb Crushes
Since we’re knee-deep in fashion trends all day, every day, you better believe we’ve got some serious celeb crushes around here. To help us remember, we’re adding these to the time capsule too!
- Sarah T is in loooooove with David Beckham (always has been).
- Maggie jonses for Jon Hamm.
- Stacie has a sweet spot for Alexander Skarsgard.
(Yes, we have two Sarah’s, and two Maggie’s. And we all get along!)
We’re going to keep it underground for five years. How do you think things will change??
Good things come in threes, right?
They do today, because I’m the third lucky recipient of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarf!
I took the scarf to my favorite local ice cream shop to snap some pics. I didn’t get any ice cream though, as they’re closed in the winter. Mega sad face. :( But hey, I had on a good lookin’ scarf, so I wasn’t sad!
Since I’m an avid rule follower (I blame my slight OCD), I definitely adhered to the rules and added a decoration to the scarf. I love green, so I sewed on some little green bows I made! Also, the coolest thing that happened to me in the scarf— I celebrated my 27th birthday!
If you wanna read some more about my time with the scarf, head on over to my blog! Sarah‘s up next, and I can assure you, she looks too-cute in the traveling scarf.
Like the other gals of Scarves.net, I am obsessed with Pinterest! I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve whipped up, crafts I’ve made, and pictures of cats I’ve pinned. So when I saw this DIY scarf tutorial, I knew I had to do it!
Gather your supplies:
- light-colored scarf — this one would work well.
- fabric marker
- cardboard to place the scarf on. No messes here!
I got a list of my favorite Andy Warhol quotes and began. I started writing (in my best Julia Warhola script) around the edges of the scarf and worked my way in.
The scarf I used was on the crinkly side, which made it a little harder to write on, but not impossible. I didn’t sketch out my letters or anything fancy, I just got to writing!
A few hours later (it took a little longer than I expected, I blame the crinkles.) I was finished, and my scarf was ready to wear!
I even took it out and about on the town:
I’m so happy with how it turned out! My text isn’t as big as the text in the inspiration, but I got to fit in more quotes. I’ll definitely be sure to wear this next time I’m at The Warhol in Pittsburgh.
