Vertical Seam Face Mask

Standard

Sharing this because I want to be able to reference it. Also, friends have made it and it fits well for them, from toddler (with some adjustment to pattern size) to beardy adult male.

(Please note on pattern below – this does not allow for seam allowance. Add 1/4″ around the edges of the mask pieces.)

J’aime la Vie – Jeff Murphy

Standard

From Jeff Murphy of Shoes =

This home recorded dittie and video is meant to give my friends and fellow musicians something to add to, sing along with and re-post their additions.  It’s sort of a pub/drinking song (regardless of your beverage of choice). Hopefully, it beats doing another jigsaw puzzle during this time of social distancing and home confinement.  Have fun with it.  If you’d like just the audio file to work with, contact me at: contact@shoeswire.com and I’ll send it over to you. 
Cheers, Jeff

Our Stories Set Us Free | Jenny Lawson | TEDxSanAntonio

To preface this – Jenny had a panic attack while doing this talk – her blog post.

“When they were editing the video they asked if I wanted to leave the anxiety attack in and at first I thought we should because it was a real look at life with mental illness.  And then I remembered how many people, like myself, can fall into a panic attack when they see someone else have a panic attack in that contagious sort of way that broken minds work and so I told them to make their best judgement.  In the end they cut out the awkward minute and I think maybe that’s for the best, although you can tell the changes in my voice from before and after.”
