spring is here

Spring is here! The weather is AMAZING for March in Minnesota and is leaving me with wanting to do nothing but to be in the sunshine and to do some shopping for new spring / summertime attire. I haven't been bitten by the spring cleaning bug quite yet, but hopefully soon. I need to purge my closet big time. Well enough of me procrastinating its time for me to get back to work. Hope everyone is enjoying there weekend :)

By the way all the amazing shoes featured above are all 60 dollars or less! what a steal! find them here!

design submission 2

Another baby shower invite for minted. Let me know what you think :)

composition / pattern play

Last night I broke out the paint, which is something I haven't done in forever. I had fun painting a bunch of geometric shapes and textures to use in future pieces but thought I would spend some time compiling a few into some interesting compositions. I'm thinking about adding the top one to my etsy shop :) The second image is of a repeatable pattern, I love making print and pattern and want to incorporate it in this blog more frequently :)

This has probably been one of the best weeks I have had in a long time. I have been freelancing away ( been pretty busy already! which is VERY EXCITING, keep the work coming!) My first ever blog giveaway is proving to be a is so fun to see people commenting and making a connection with my work. I have been cooking again... which is seriously something I haven't done for the past few years, (really lame, I know) I signed up to be part of a stitch swap, I hope I made the cut off in time!

Some other cool stuff I have planned for this weekend into the next are...
- Teaching myself to knit, she makes it look so easy
- Working on my Pokemon for the Pokemon Battle Royale show, I have Doduo
- making more art for my my etsy shop, its been awhile 
- making print and pattern - maybe it could be a daily post :) 

alright I need to get back to work!
