fall is my favorite time of year. crisp apples, autumn colors, pumpkin flavoring, layers upon layers... it's just heavenly. although it's still in the 70's in my neck of the woods, my trip to michigan got me in the cold weather mindset. this season i am loving deep colors [oxblood and hunter green], long sweaters and patterned tights. also on my fall wishlist? emily's new book cupcakes and cashmere that's based on her lovely blog.
i know that posting a tour of the office right after the kitchen is a bit unconventional, but our living area is still under 'construction'. we're looking into getting a new couch next month, so i'm waiting until then to take photos.
i am coming to you from the lovely state of michigan - where i will be staying for the next few days. my time will be chalk-full of mama time, pedicures, yummy food, brisk weather, art festivals & lots of sleep. i will also be photographing a wedding tomorrow, which i am super excited about. therefore, i just wanted to let you know that it will be a bit quiet on the blog - but i'll be back soon!
i am dying over warby parker's new fall collection. primarily, the red framed 'sloan'. and when i looked up red frames on etsy, i found two big, thin frames that are equally amazing. so yeah, it's official - i'm obsessed. looks like i know what i'm getting myself for an early christmas present :]
i was browsing my instagram feed & came across this lady's work and life. she balances a husband, two little boys & a life full of illustration. lindsay has the most amazing penmanship, a creative eye and an extremely sturdy hand. i mean, look at this. and this. she's incredible.
after looking at her illustrations, i felt the urge to get up out of my warm bed and try it for myself.
three hours later, the print above is what i got.
i love coloring. and i love drawing. when i feel sick or stressed, i take out my precious moments collection coloring book & get to work. when i write lists or make notes, i doodle mazes and patterns on my sheet. it's just what i do. why hadn't i ever made an actually art piece before?
well now that i have, i'm never looking back. expect to see more prints and illustrations from me in the future. making that piece made me feel calm and creative, and the end product made me extremely feel proud.
