Lately I've been needing to really remind myself what makes me happy. Sometimes it's too easy to get lost inside your head and lose track of the simple things! I was just looking at my goodreads info and forgot I had 'liked' some quotes that are so simple, yet so powerful.

There are some other great designs I've stumbled across recently that I really love and wanted to share

Happy Monday everyone! Let's get some shit done this week, huh?

I don't know how I JUST discovered Polyvore, but I am loving it! It was 63 degrees when I woke up today (odd for Chicago) and it felt a bit like like fall, which inspired me to put this together. I've always loved summer the most, but I'm starting to actually look forward to fall now.

Peek at the New Studio!

Hey all! So I still have some organizing to do, but I am mostly settled in to the studio/office in our 2nd bedroom. Awhile back I had started to look in to separate studio space somewhere so I could spread out a bit more, but it was hard to justify the cost as I still work full time and was afraid I wouldn't have enough time to work there to make it worth it. So I decided to stay working at home as I have been doing since graduating college. Working at home is nice and it makes me happy since it's easy to take breaks for coffee, tea, dinner, laundry; all that domestic stuff. 

Here are some pictures of the space (whatever not pictured is a bit messy!)

So happy I found room for my easel!

Started to decorate the walls this weekend. The photos on the left are by Scott, the framed collage is by my friend Sarah, the square print of fabric is from an Art-O-Mat and the PBR piece was a gift from when our friends went to Portland.

Current workspace/mess.

Studio buddy. Cleo likes to hang out when I'm in there.

Print by Ashley G, various photobooth pictures with dear friends, and a vintage Florida travel map.
