"Tomorrow will be a Good Day" via explodingdog.com

Today I am uninspired, emotional, frustrated and mean.
Here is to hoping tomorrow is a better day.

Floridity , $3.50.


Seashell Ring by Ardent1 ,$75.00. too bad it's not my size ;)

Summer work space



Here is my desk in the office/loft area at my boyfriend's place for the summer.
The lighting is similar to my studio at KU, instead of a wall of windows..I have natural sky lights from the ceiling :)

I'm currently working on some small drawings/experiments in hopes to come up with some things for some upcoming call for entries.

While listening to Pandora, my current station is a station based off of the band SAY ANYTHING!

Botanical Gardens, Norfolk, VA

JR took the day off yesterday and we went to the Botanical Gardens!

Here is some of my Shake It Polaroids (iphone app) of some of the things we saw...











It was a really beautiful garden, lots of wonderful colors and texture inspirations! :)

A few of my favorite things...

A few of my favorite things...in Polaroids!


These shoes. They're from Rocketdog and come in a bunch of bright colors! They are almost worn out and I definitely need a new pair.


Alkaline Trio! One of my favorite bands.


Museums! This picture of birds was taken at the University of Kansas Natural History Museum, they have lots of birds and bones!


My boyfriend and Annie. I don't think this needs much of an explanation.

What are some of your favorite things?
