Hello again. Yep, it's me, checking back in. "You haven't posted in a while," you say. Yeah, I haven't written here since checks notes July 2018. And before those two posts, checks notes again I hadn't posted since October 2017. So you might say that I'm due. It's been about a year, and that's about … Continue reading So what are you doing with this blog anyways?
September 2017 All was quiet in the apartment. Well, for a moment. Then the distinct scratching noises came from overhead – as if a small rodent was scuttling across the ceiling. Lauren glanced up. "Odd," she thought and hoped that she was just going crazy. For the longest time, the alleged animal didn't make a … Continue reading The Great Rodentia War of 2017
Now that it's almost July, it seems like the ideal time to look back at my project from almost two months ago, right? Right. I completed 31 separate lettering projects across May (well, technically, May 2-June 1. But that's fine). It was my goal to do one project every day, but that didn't always happen. … Continue reading A Look Back: #laurenlettersmay
For a while I had decided that since I "couldn't" draw or do art in "typical" forms, I wasn't good at art. Granted, I never practiced since I decided that I couldn't do it. And then several months ago, I kept on seeing lettering pop up on social media. And I was intrigued. It was … Continue reading Introducing… #laurenlettersmay!
For the sixth time in six years, I'm packing my life into boxes and prepping to shift them to someplace new. Now, four of those years were for college, but I still count them. At the beginning of every year, I'd pack all my stuff up and move into my dorm room. May rolls around, … Continue reading Packing Up and Moving On
Hey, y'all! So, I've recently realized just how long it's been since I've last posted. I haven't completely forgotten about this blog. I've drafted a couple posts here and there...but they never got posted. Not because they didn't deserve to. Just because they needed a little "something" that they didn't have yet. But I'll be revisiting … Continue reading Life Update: Schedule Craziness and Paring Back
I am so excited to introduce y'all to another one of my projects! If you've been following along, you'll know that I've been writing this blog on-and-off again for a little over two years. This all started back in the spring of my junior year of college when I had to write a blog for … Continue reading Introducing… Story Time with Eissler (YouTube Edition)
A couple weeks ago, I took the most of the rest of my vacation days and did the longest roadtrip I've ever driven – 1300 miles in 6 days. That's an adventure in and of itself, but if you know me, then you know crazy things always seem to happen. Things always seem to happen in … Continue reading Adventures and Mishaps: Tour de East Coast
Last weekend, a couple of my friends and I went up to the Columbus zoo. Backstory: I love red pandas. They're just so adorable and look so cuddly! One of my friends also loves them, so we decided we needed to visit some in person. So off to the zoo! We went late in the … Continue reading Adventure: Columbus Zoo
Last weekend, I went strawberry picking. A little while and about two-thirds of a row later, I had a full flat (or about 11 pounds) of the delicious berries. What do you do with that much strawberries? 1. Make homemade jam I grew up learning how to can from my Mom – we'd can tomatoes … Continue reading What to Do with 11 Pounds of Strawberries
