Item 178 – RBG Lacework

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is known for her strength, her measured and wise jurisprudence, and her signature lace collars.

Item 166 – Backyard Burning Man

Burning Man has been canceled, but COVID can’t take the festival of radical self-reliance away from us. Introducing Backyard Burning Man! Build a miniature version of “The Man” in your back yard or driveway and burn it in effigy. (You may ONLY set it ablaze if you can do so safely– otherwise, you may submit your unburned work.) And of course, remember: leave no trace when you’re done.

Write your wishes on tiny pieces of hand-made biodegradable confetti made from leaves and cast them into the wind. — Inspired by Katie
