DIY Washy-Tape Keyboard!

Hey guys! It’s Clare! I’m sorry for not blogging in a while. This blog is going to be about how to Washy-Tape your keyboard! This is an awesome customization tool and it’s very pretty. It can also help you type without looking at keys! I’m also doing a DIY because there aren’t many tutorials on how to do this properly.

First, you’ll need scissors, any small flat tool (I used a cuticle pusher), and washy-tape! Washy-tape is usually hard to find, you can try to look in A.C. Moore or Target. My friend, The Inquisitive Writer, lent me some washy-tape, check out her blog! It’s awesome!


Next, cut off a piece of tape. If you’re washy-taping a letter, cut out a square. However, if you washy-taping a different button, you’ll have to measure it, and cut it out! When you measure it, it doesn’t have to be exact. Just don’t make it too big or too tiny.

Then, take you flat tool and flatten out the tape so it’s not crinkled. If it’s crinkled, it’ll be slightly annoyed to type with, and it’ll feel a bit strange. Once you’ve flattened it, use your flat tool and tuck the tiny bits of extra tape into the edge of the keys, so it looks neat.

Finally, repeat these steps and washy-tape your keyboard on how many keys you want!WP_20161223_016.jpg

And there’s my tutorial on how to washy-tape and customize your keyboard! Stay tuned for new posts!


What are the Pros & Cons of Fall and Winter?

Hey guys! It’s Clare! Today I will be doing a collab with The Inquisitive Writer! Jo will be talking about the pros of Fall and cons of Winter. She is going to be the color purple. I will be talking about the cons of Fall and pros of Winter. I will be green. We are doing the pros and cons of places that get the equal amount of each season. Comment down what season you like the most!



What are the pros for Fall?

I think the pros would be drinking pumpkin spice lattes, crocheting hats and scarves (yes, I like to make hats and scarves), and starting to wear sweaters. Other pros being that the leaves turn red, orange, and yellow (which make great pictures), a break from the summer heat especially here in NJ), and that good feeling that snowy weather is coming.

I like drinking pumpkin lattes, too! We don’t share a lot of similarities about the pros of Fall, but everyone has their own reason why they like Fall. 

Agreed! So what are the dreaded cons?

When the leaves fall off the trees, it’s really sad-looking, the temperature drops very cold very quickly, it’s cold out, and you haven’t packed away your summer clothes (which takes a long time).

Ugh! Yeah I hate it when the weather gets too cold.

Okay, let’s move onto Winter! 



The pros of Winter are that you can go sledding, snowy weather, building snowmen, drinking hot cocoa, and taking cool pictures.

Sledding brings up a fresh memory for me… Once I went sledding with a relative on a really steep hill, and when the sled stopped, I flew off and did a back flip!

That’s a really funny story! Glad you didn’t get hurt! Let’s move on to the cons.

The cons of Winter would definitely be chapped lips, dry hands, the temperatures dropping into the negatives, and catching colds and viruses. I get sick mostly during Wintertime.

Winter is still fun, though!

Sure… Well it was fun doing these pros and cons with you!

You too! Bye!

These were the pros and cons of both Fall and Winter! However, everyone has their own reason why they have their own pros and cons of different seasons. See ya guys next time!

My Weird Addictions?

Hey bloggers! I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in awhile. 😦

So I’m here today to talk about my weird addictions. My weird addiction is… *dumdadidum* SLIME! Yes, I like slime. A lot. Maybe too much.

Slime is just soo super squishy! And… I make my own slime. It’s just so satisfying.

Stay tuned for my next post!

Are sports and games just as important as studies?

Hey guys! I’m here with a question that popped up like a lightbulb inside of my head.

Are sports and games just as important as studies?

Screenshot 2016-11-11 at 7.37.25 PM.png

Since I was a little kid, around 4 or 5, my parents have been real sticklers about my grades, and my educational. I wasn’t allowed to miss a single day of school unless I really needed to. They always believed in “education” and “getting into a good college” and “being successful”. However, since I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to play sports, games, and hang out with friends more.

Recently, one of my subject grades dropped down to an 85. My parents, being my parents, freaked out, and made me stop going to all me extra-curricular activities, and said that I wasn’t allowed to meet with any friends until I was able to raise that grade.

It’s only been about a week, but I’ve found myself completely miserable, staring at a textbook, using online courses, and nothing else to do but learn. I’ve started to get bored, without going outside and getting a fresh new breath of exercising air.

So, just to re-cap, are sports and games just as important as studies?
