Discovering what I want in life...

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about what I want out of life and am having a really good time coming up with stuff. So far, this is what I've got...

- have a successful, inspiring, and fun blog with a wide audience and bigg sponsers

- make amazing things to sell on etsy

- learn to silkscreen

- learn more and play around with photography

- expand my wardrobe into something fun, funky, colorful, and unique - feel good about my style
- have amazing photoshoots in glamorous outfits in fantastically everyday locations

- do my grocery shopping at a farmer's market with my boyfriend

- become a vegetarian

- practice yoga

- experience Burning Man

- be a part of design trade shows in some way

- have friends and family over to my boyfriend and I's amazing house all the time for movies, dinner, and chickenfoot (addicting domino game)

- go running

- film little random documentaries

- switch over from pc to mac (I never thought I'd say that!)

- learn how to knit fun stuff (not just 6 inch raggedy strips that I give up on after 3 days)

- plant a garden

- become fluent in Spanish

- learn the beauty of figure drawing

- start to journal and doodle everyday adventures, thoughts, and ideas

More to come I'm sure - but as for right now, I'm really looking forward to my life!

More work!

Again - I've been working away and not sharing any of it here! Check out the latest from Macy's and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Harajuku / New Contemporary at Macy's: Ultra Funky and hip - how I managed to use a red, white, and blue color scheme that doesn't scream Americana, I don't know.

Juniors Prom Dresses at Macy's: I had a blast with this androgynous look. I made that bow tie out of a pendant necklace and two loops of ribbon - everyone wanted to buy it!

Rampage forms at Macy's: I love how the form's usually random red color really made this color story come together.

Action Sports mannequins at Macy's: Trendy beach bums

Rampage mannequins at Macy's: Coral is such a hot color this season! Love it.

Chalkboard at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.: Daily Fresh Fish Specials

Market Window Display at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.: Going green with shirts made from recycled plastic bottles and organic cotton.

Flower show at Macy's opens April 3rd so I'll try to post some pictures from that soon!
