Couple Replicates Bookshelf Design They Saw Online, Gets Blown Away With The Result

There is really nothing impossible when it comes to patience and creativity.

Like most of us, Jessica and Sinclair Breen have been interested in pictures posted on Pinterest. Both got easily hooked by the social media’s inspiring photos that cover almost everything from design and fashion, to technology and photography. Apparently though, the couple decided to turn the inspiration to action.

Basically, the two found a picture of a bookshelf online. When Jessica showed it to Sinclair, the latter “almost had a heart attack.” This is where everything started. The couple knew that they must give it a try.

After measuring the wall space, Jessica took the inspiring picture with her and showed it to a graphic arts teacher who worked at the same school as hers. With his help, they immediately understood what size panels to order and use. They spent around $900 just to get everything into place.

After seeing a picture of a bookshelf on Pinterest, Jessica and Sinclair decided to build one themselves.

Before starting everything, the two first sought the help of a graphic artist.

They eventually knew the materials and dimensions needed to start the project.

Believe it or not, they ordered custom-made panels that are worth $900.

They arranged the boxes according to the picture they saw online.

It took them at least 16 hours to complete the bookshelf project.

Jessica said that the project, despite being a huge proces, was “so worth it.”

Well, I think we can all agree that the bookshelf project is totally amazing. Indeed, it was worth it. Let us know what you think about Jessica and Sinclair’s passion project in the comments below!

Disney Animator’s Comics Diary About Losing His Wife is Terribly Heartbreaking

Read the captions and try not to cry.

Losing a loved one can be a sad, traumatic experience. People deal with the grief differently and for this man, keeping a ‘doodle diary’ has been most helpful.

A former illustrator for Disney, Gary Andrews’ comics about losing his wife and living life as a single father of two is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. No wonder his work has made an impact to his numerous followers on social media.

In a BoredPanda feature, we learn that Gary began doing his comics-style journal entries back on his 54th birthday. He was happily married at the time and a father of two children.

Unfortunately, something tragic happened. His wife Joy got sick and they initially thought it was nothing but flu. It turned out, however, that it was actually sepsis and it eventually led to her passing.

Gary shared:

“From the minute Joy was admitted to hospital, specialists from every department tried to find out what was wrong. They couldn't have done more. It wasn't until the post-mortem that they narrowed it down to sepsis.”

Overwhelmed by his sadness, Gary later turned to his notebook and began pouring his emotions out on paper – by making artworks.

He recalled:

“I was crying so hard it was difficult to focus on the page. I was drawing through tears.

“Joy had been my soulmate for 19 years. She was beautiful, kind, generous and funny. We did everything together. When I lost her, I felt half of me had gone.”

Now his touching comics have captured the hearts of many on the internet.
