Feeling all rosey today

Not sure why but I fell all rosey today. I want to lay in a field full of roses. There are none around so I painted one and I think I will keep it for ever. Hope you are having a good day!

Re-do Day

There are many times when I find a print I did a long time ago that I still really like but it might not be what I'm loving trend wise at the moment so I take the motifs/ colors and change them around. It allows me to think outside the box and always has some pretty cool results. Re-dos usually turn out better then the original. Here is my new creation. I did this print for a Free People pant back in 2011.
 I loved my hand painted motifs and its un-perfect layout.
 
At the moment I'm so into shadows, dark moody colors, and contrasting textures. I normally don't like black but its nice to try new things and I was inspired by some cool shadows in my building.
 
 
 
Ta-da! The final result! I love it!
 
 
what do you think? good redo?
 
Happy Re-do Day!

smiley cupcake to the rescue

So I was having a really bad day. One of those days you just have no hope and seem to be upset at the whole world. And then I went to go get a chocolaty treat to cheer me up and I found this...
 
  
 
a smiley cup cake! It was as if someone was trying to tell me that everything will be ok.
 I needed it!
Thanks smiley cupcake you saved my day big time!

something somewhere

 
     I looked up in the sky today at 2:45pm today just wondering and thinking about that asteroid. I was reminded of space and all the unknown that exists in it. I get so wrapped in in my own little environment I forget there is so much more out there.

except for...

So NYC Fall 2013 fashion week is here and I have to say I'm bored out of my mind. Yes there are some great layering and inspiring moody color combinations but print wise sooo blah... But I have to say I love love love the Red Valentino show. The background is awesome. I feel a whole cute "new girl" vibe going on and I'm smitten with it. Thanks Zoe D!

Karen's House

This past weekend I went visit my favorite person who lives in my favorite place, Karen Skoglund. Her house is such a place of pure inspiration. Everywhere you look you will find purple, tie dye and suns. From the moment I step onto her property I feel a sense of calm and great happiness. I feel like the color comes back into my life...yes it’s that awesome! Not only is her house amazing she is amazingly multi-talented. I've sad this many times and will say it for the rest of my life...Karen is by far the coolest most inspirational person I have ever met and everything she is..is so true to my soul. I am so grateful she was the one to teach me everything I know today. Yea she's ridiculously creative but she also super organized which is a very hard characteristic to find in us creative types. One thing that she taught me is to never give up doing what you love- never ever! She is an great example of making a living on her own by doing what she loves. I could keep writing about how cool Karen is for days but I guess I should show you some of her awesome house. Next time I go to visit I will take some different shots of some other parts of her house. Check out her website- its awesomely purple. oh and I also have to say that she is the best cook ever!!!!!!! I love you Karen!!
