Post Office Box Art Wall

A few years ago, I moved into my senior year dorm with the hope that I'd figure out a new way of decorating the white cinder block walls. I had the same set of posters from freshman to junior year and thought that something fresh would help with the ridiculous case of senioritis I'd acquired (which, honestly, I'd been experiencing since halfway through freshman year). I asked my YouTube subscribers in this video if they could send me little pieces of art on 4 by 6 inch index cards and send them to my PO Box. What I ended up with was pretty amazing.

Now that I've graduated from college and moved into an apartment with my husband, I've been working on getting the art back up on the wall. The following are pictures of the most recent incarnation of the art wall!


You guys sent me such a huge variety of things on these cards... every single one is completely different. They're full of colorful paintings, sketches, collages, tracings, letters, photos, embroidery... pretty much everything you could think of. Nearly every one came with a story behind it. One person's letter described a super sweet account of how this challenge united her family. She'd set up paints and cards, then invited her mother and younger brother to join in. They sent me a beautiful stack of colorfully-painted cards and a thank-you letter for bringing them together.


Some of the cards contained words of encouragement that helped me through my senior year of college quite a bit. A lot of the people who sent me art knew that I had a bit of trouble with staying happy at school, whether I was homesick or lonely or struggling with my choice of major. One in particular just said "BE BRAVE" with the hopes that I would wake up, see that card, and find the strength to keep my head up. The amount of love and kindness that went into these works of art just fills me up with so much gratitude.


I'm so happy to have these cards back up on my wall. If you sent me one, thank you so much for thinking of me and putting the work in. There's plenty of room for more still, so if you're interested in adding to this awesome wall, (and maybe seeing your art in the background of my videos!) send a 4 x 6 inch piece of art to Lauren Fairweather, P.O. Box 274, Woonsocket, RI 02895.

  1. I love your wall design! Sometimes, it's good to keep bits and pieces of your memories and store them in a scrapbook or turn them into wall art like you did. I hope I could make good memories as you did. Right now, I'm in the midst of choosing a college major. I'm pretty much confused.

  39. American Made 2017 Full Movie Watch Online, American Made is a 2017 American biographical crime film directed by Doug Liman, written by Gary Spinelli and starring Tom Cruise.

    Watch American Made full Movie 2017 is more interesting as a showcase for the dateless elasticity of Cruise’s star power. It feels, for better or worse, like a film he could have made at almost any point in the last 30 years.

    American Made 2017 movie
    American Made 2017 movie isn’t a major breakthrough, but it still feels like a career progression for Cruise simply by handing him an intriguing role: Adler Berriman “Barry” Seal, prime mover in one of those just-declassified, you-couldn’t-make-it-up stories that sporadically fall into the hands of grateful producers.

    Watch American Made Online also offers some parallels to fictional Tom Cruise projects. We've seen the star have some other airplane trouble recently in The Mummy and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Meanwhile, American Made's trailer features a scene almost identical to one in last year's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. In both, Cruise plays a character who is able to successfully taunt police officers with the knowledge that they're going to have to let him go.

    Next month, Tom Cruise is reteaming with his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman for American Made. Based on a true story, the film finds the three-time Academy Award nominee playing the part of Barry Seal, a pilot-turned-drug runner who, in 1984, was recruited to be an undercover CIA informant for one of the biggest drug busts in history. While Seal may not be one of the most virtuous of real life figures, Cruise says that it was Seal's incredible true story that was just too interesting to pass up. Cruise said.
