Hello to my neglected corner of the world.  I've been dreaming lately...dreaming about my art and running a small business.  I hope someday my dream can come true.  Dreaming about having a cute studio all organized and decorated to my liking.

I don't understand how creative women jump start their businesses without losing sight of the sole purpose of creating art.  It seems so easy to get swept up in managing social media and wanting more and more and more then losing sight in why we make art to begin with.  How do they find balance, manage time and live off of their work?

Sorry I've been away for so long.  No promises that I'll be back soon.  Miss this place!  Life happens and blogging gets left behind.

All grown up...getting there

Reading philosophy and history of medicine. Sipping infused blackberry mojito green tea. Falling asleep to calming French music. Reading for pleasure. Writing letters.  Cherishing pure, genuine love. Early to bed, early to rise. Sophistication on sophistication on sophistication. Life is good.

heading home

 {letter writing to some dear friends early this week}

I am heading home today and couldn't be more excited.  There is something so sweet about being home with my family and my cozy home town.  Time for a much needed break and play time.  I will also be working at CIRCA for three of the days and so excited to create some new items for the shop possibly.  The boy is coming home with me so we can spend a nice relaxing break together too!  Then it's my birthday!!! WAHOOO!

Happy Friday!

dearest november

{pumpkin spice chai latte art}

Where have the months gone?  Tis the month of cozy sweaters, sparkly uggs, eskimo hoods, coffee shop dwelling, candle light, late night studying and MY 21st BIRTHDAY!
The past few months I have been through some big changes.  I have come to realize there is a different path to my plan and it's not all that bad...just needed time to adjust.  I have the most wonderful, loving, and supportive parents and the greatest boyfriend around that have helped me find me again.  I am also thankful for the positive friends and mentors who listen to my babbling thoughts.
Cheers to snuggle weather and the holiday season.  I cannot wait to spend it with the ones I love.

weekend DIY

spent sunday evening painting pumpkins with the boy.  he's such a good sport putting up with my arts and crafts and spending time doing them with me.  the skull pumpkins were inspired by cinco de mayo candy skulls i saw over on the free people blog.  it was an enjoyable evening activity and they turned out pretty darn good!
hope you all had a happy monday!  feels good to cross off things on the to do list for the week.
ps sorry for the crappy cell phone pics

sipping fresh, hot apple cider and hitting the school books.  these past two weeks have been an amazing mix of self discovery and hard work.  life is good and the people in it are even better.  i am more myself than ever before and i am comfortable in my own skin and being me.  i changed my attitude around and had to once again remind myself to choose my own happiness.  it's both tiring and selfish to be in a funk.  being happy is when i'm my best smile is genuine and i embrace the people around me.  the fall chill has awakened my soul.  my heart feels warm and my face glows with sheer happiness. 
i painted a couple birdhouses last weekend.  it felt good to get my hands dirty with paints and glitter.  i have also started to run.  it clears my mind and is a huge release from daily life stresses.
cheers to being free and letting go and just being yourself.
happy sunday.
