a goodbye of sorts

hello there,

so... this is going to be my last post on this good old blog, at least for a while...

i've been in quite the 'creative block' rut for a long time now. it's been hard for me to create things that i'm proud of since graduating from school, which is almost 2 years now.

however, moving to a new town has been great for my inspiration. having a clean slate to start over with will be good for me, and hopefully my art. my new town has really resonated with me in such a way that suddenly everything that was happening started to make sense, and i finally feel ready and confident to start my own artistic adventure

my new blog is going to be called 'oh september' and it will feature a lot of my own drawings, photos and thoughts. and since tomorrow is my birthday, i hope to have it up and ready by then! (although, i'm without internet, so who knows...)

i already have tons of ideas that i would love to share with you and i hope that you'll continue to follow me on my new journey!


on another note, i spontaneously responded to leah goren's callout for an intern, since i could use a little studio experience while getting back in to screen printing.

the job would entail block printing cats on fabric for her super cute cat dress that she sells on etsy. i'm really excited to meet her and start making cute things!

so yeah, stayed tuned for 'oh september' and my cat dress adventure!

it's a good thing for great design

it's been a long weekend... i've been really busy setting up my new apartment, which i moved into last weekend.

so far i absolutely LOVE it! although, last night i didn't sleep a wink because my mind was racing about all fix-me-up-DIY projects i have in mind!

it's a terrible thing, wanting to create everything you can't love but afford... (re: anthropologie*)

anyways, it's a good thing for great design. clothing company a.p.c. is now making it super easy to shop exactly what you're looking for. beautifully organized by color & style, this layout is perfect for the online shopper that just realized it's already the middle of september, and last season's autumn clothes just aren't cutting it... oh!... moi?

what are you waiting for! take a look. your eyes will thank you. wallet, not so much...

also, please stay tuned this week (my birthday week!) for the 'unveiling' of my new blog! i'm really trying to take this little bloggie to the next level. i can't wait to show you!
