Welcome to Elemental Carbon!
My name is Alyssa and I'm a Chemistry major at The Ohio State University. After graduation, I want to be a high school chemistry teacher. On the side, I do crafty things!
I like the smell of home improvement stores, the color grey, and shoes. Especially shoes.
I'm a sucker for any kind of office supplies, namely pens. I hate pencils.
I love chemistry. Weird, I know. But I do. (Betcha couldn't tell by the title).
I enjoy photography. I bought myself a dSLR a few years ago, learned the basics, and I absolutely love it. I'm still learning, but I almost always shoot on Manual.
I love to travel. I've been to Kenya, France, Germany, England, Austria, and the Czech Republic to name a few.
I have a cat. Her name is Snickers and she is very fluffy. She might pop in some of the pictures from time to time.
Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved all kinds of crafting.
I love my mom. We are basically the same person. We go to antique stores, craft shows, and yard sales together and we are always keeping our eyes out for things to remake or new projects to take on.
And most importantly: I love Jesus Christ, my personal Savior.
In each post, I try to include both pictures and step by step instructions for the project as well as the cost of the project.
My goal is to have a new post each week, although there will be some exceptions. So take a look around, explore my projects, and then go try them for yourself!
