I'M DOING A LINKUP!

CREATINSPIRATION//The "What If?" Question

Friday, January 22, 2016







About a year ago, my family and our family friends decided to hike the Hollywood sign. LA is about an hour away from where I live, so we packed up our cars and headed to the trails. Our dads left us halfway through the hike to go get the cars, thinking that the moms and the kids could find their ways back easily.

FOUNDATIONS | An Attempt at a Photoshoot

Upon completing this photoshoot thing that I took with a literal point-and-shoot camera (Canon Powershot), I determined that modeling is hard work.

READING OLD WRITINGS | A VIDEO

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Since many of you out there are writers, I thought that this video that I posted today might make you smile :) I dug out a folder full of old writings, drawings, and advertisements that I created from ages 7-11 (ish) and went through my very first story!



So...what did you think? Were you a good writer when you were seven? (I sure wasn't.) Should I make more of these videos...should I reenact some of my old writings? Let me know in the comments below!

WELCOME TO SILVER MESS + A GIVEAWAY

Monday, January 4, 2016




Welcome to Silver Mess!
My name’s Rachel (formerly Rcubed at Random Rants by Rcubed), and this is my new blog!
Silver Mess was born out of my desire to create a site that had more of a central purpose than just my own random rants. I’ve been blogging for over two years now, on several different kinds of blogs, and Silver Mess is birthed out of a conglomeration of those. Since I’ve always had an interest in literature, film, music, and other forms of art, I wanted this blog to be artistically inclined...but also an extension of my looser, crazier self. It was hard to compromise those two things together, but in the end, I came up with one common denominator: creativity.
Everyone has some element of creativity in them. God made us to problem-solve, and some of those problems have to be solved by, to use a common cliche, “thinking outside the box.”
Silver Mess was made out of a desire to foster people’s creativity and to admire the creations others have made. On this blog, you will find monthly Creative Challenges (to help you learn, explore, and, hopefully, create more), Creative Features (to showcase people who are creating things that are noble, pure, and good), and anything from Spotify playlists to style posts. Creativity runs across the gamut of life, and that’s part of the reason why I like being creative--anything is possible.
You can find more about my purpose for this blog on my About page, but...of course...there’s more!

In celebration of Silver Mess’ launch, there’s currently a blog tour going around the blogosphere! Some of the people I’ve made connections with through Random Rants by Rcubed have graciously allowed me to guest post/discuss with them different aspects of creativity on their respective blogs.



January 4 - Totally Graced
January 6 - Summer of 1999
January 7 - Opal Swirls
January 8 - A Writer’s Faith

In addition to the blog tour, I’m also hosting a giveaway! I had a lot of fun shopping for these specific items, and I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!
SILVER MESS CREATIVITY PRIZE PACK
you’ll receive
one $10 Starbucks gift card
one 3-pack of Yoobi Pretzel Erasers
one Liquid Lipshine lip gloss in Prospect Pink
one 24-pack of ScribbleStuff gel pens (THESE ARE SO COOL I LOVE THESE SO MUCH)
one Cloudy with the Chance of Meatballs movie (one of my favorite animated movies because giant food! I love giant food!)
three notebooks (a memo notepad, a mini notepad, and a notecard notepad)

Here’s the Rafflecopter (I’ll be showing more of what the items look like in the video I’ll be posting on Wednesday, so just sit tight and wait for that).


Unfortunately, my limited high school student funds will only allow me to send things through the U.S. ONLY (sorry, international friends), but hopefully someday I’ll get more money and be able to do an international giveaway!

Thank you so much for joining with me on this wild ride! You won't be disappointed--promise :)
