Mummies, DRY Humor and silly doodles, oh my!

Mike Lowery is super awesome, punny, creative illustrator! 

Never have i found another illustrator who seems to have the same ridiculous mind as me, and when i found Mike's work last year i was super stoked. 

The best part? 

When i took Lilla Roger's "Make Art That Sells" class a couple months ago, Mike was one of the 1st artists that was interviewed. And it was HILARIOUS. I wish i could share it with you! [...but alas i can not]

It's such a blessing to find artists who have similarities to your work because it gives you HOPE

And now i have a little more hope that one day, my time will come, and i'll be able to truly say, "oh my job? i'm an illustrator" and mean it 100%.

Have a creative day friends!!

My work was PUBLISHED!!!

Ahhhh!!!!! I'm SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!
My 'Lovely Girl' was published inside Zooey Magazine

 "Zooey has thrived as a collaborative magazine covering topics like female entrepreneurship, DIYs, entertainment, the modern lifestyle (vintage-inspired), and much more. Zooey doesn’t serve as a guideline as to how one should live, but rather as an inspiration to brighten paths, days, and to shed light on the power in all women. "

I submitted in a WHILE ago and didn't actually know if they'd put my doodle in the magazine, and i CERTAINLY didn't know i'd get a FULL page!! I'm just.... over the moon!! 

The BEST part?? 
Elsie and Emma from A Beautiful Mess are on the cover!! How amazing!!! 

I see this as the FIRST of many features in the future!

Every once in a while, you have one of those weeks...

Every once in a while, you have one of  weeks... one of those LIFE AFFIRMING, AMAZING things happening, opportunity FILLED weeks... and it's SUCH a blessing. And you sit back at that end of the week, and you think "Goodness. I'm so thankful that i'm on the right path'. 

This week was NOT one of those weeks...

HAH just kidding! It totally was!! 

I mentioned Story NYC a few months ago when they carried my onesies! Well, once a month they have a pitch night, and i was determined to talk about my brand AND my book!

And it went SWIMMINGLY!!!
I'm so thankful! I don't exactly know what this means yet with Story NYC but i am very excited for the possibility!

Being a nervous, scared, but VERY ambitious girl is working to my advantage! KEEP WORKING HARD! Seriously!! Things with come to fruition when the timing is right!! 

And THAT is my encouragement this lovely Friday!!

Follow Your Heart! And Your Opportunities.


How crazy that a whole week has went by since my last post... weeks are FLYING BY!


You know when you have your days ALLLLL planned out, and then you hear of some really neato other opportunities and you say 'heck! lets do those things instead?' well the doodle above is EXACTLY that! 

One of my friends from MATS1 posted a link about a painting a mural... i know i haven't mentioned this but I want to paint one in New York soooo badly! So i quickly put together the one above and i'm crossing my fingers!

Have there been any opportunities you'd really like to do? 

Write it all out! 
Or just keep your eyes peeled!! 

It's so exciting to finally DO SOMETHING you've been wanting to do for so long! 

Smiles to you dear friends!!

PSS: I didn't have time to re-read this and our computer is leaving to be fixed for a week EEK so i'm sorry if there are mistakes.

Sometimes we all need a new lightbulb!

You know when you FINALLY think you've figured things out, and you're FINALLY getting excited about the steps to take and all is well in the world.... and then you talk to someone who says something and a GIANT lightbulb appears and you realize that all the thoughts you had just moments before are GONE because now you have a DIFFERENT path you feel you should take.... yeah.... that was the last few weeks for me....

This giant lightbulb, which btw... i blame Brandy for, has been hindering my thoughts!!!  BUT growing my book little by little... 

Over and over in my brain i keep changing what i want this blog to look like, to mesh with my dreams and that pop in and out of my brain and honestly, i really just need to bribe myself JUST POST and it will s.l.o.w.l.y figure out itself! :)

Here's to not limited...!

Happy Weekend friends,
