Have you seen all the great triangle patterns on everything these days? I loooooove the geometric trend going on right now! Bold, contrasting patterns are always my favorite. But because I'm a busy mom, by the time I notice new design trends--they normally pass!
One thing I've found that helps me enjoy a fun trend (without investing much in it) is making something myself, inspired by the said trend! I normally spend way less or nothing when I use things around my house! Case in point: I made this artwork with copy paper and a sharpie marker! By the way, a sharpie marker is the best kept DIY secret in town!
Tip: if you want to get your kids involved in this project (because they could TOTALLY make this!) give them a regular maker (like a Crayola Magic Marker) and tell them to draw the triangles. I bet the sketchy result would look really cool!
