Quote Worthy Wednesday: Inspiration for Your Everyday

I am still here yall! Swamped with some side projects and getting ready to head to the beach next week for one of my best friends weddings! I have lots of great posts in the works for the next couple of weeks so please bear with me....

Do you ever feel like you get in over your head with commitments? Sometimes I just can't say no. But I also feel like I do some of my best work under pressure. Maybe I am just in denial...

I also have a new member to my household. I will keep you in suspense until he is ready for his introduction. :)

I have been a busy little bee this week getting ready for my show this weekend so I have borrowed this lovely little quote from Wild and Precious.

This is such a great quote, but sometimes I find it hard to let go of my "plans". I am a bit of a control freak. I need to learn to go with the flow and just let things happen on their own.

Happy Hump Day!


Druid City Art Festival

Monday, March 21, 2011

This Saturday, March 26th I will be participating in the 2nd Annual Druid City Art Festival in Downtown Tuscaloosa! I have been a busy little bee in my studio cranking out some awesome new jewelry designs so show! Three words: Mini. Infinity. Scarves.

If you are in town, come out and see me and and other local artists and help support the art community in Tuscaloosa. Festival starts at 11:00 and ends at 7:00 and it is FREE admission so no excuses on not coming... :)

I will try and get some pictures of the lovely goods I will have to offer later this week. I hope to see you there!

Saturday also marks one year since I lost my mother. It will be bittersweet and I am prepared for every type of emotion that may come. I honestly feel like it was yesterday and can't believe that I have actually survived a year without her. I feel it is only appropriate for me to be doing an art show on this anniversary. I don't think my mom would have it any other way. In fact, I think she will be with me throughout the day cheering me on.

This little guy last night and today plus the time change makes for a long and sleepy Monday.

How could I say no to a face like this?! He even helped me fold laundry last night!

Here Comes The Sun

Thursday, March 10, 2011

In honor of Daylight Savings that will occur on Sunday, I made up this little treasury in Etsy to proclaim to the world my LOVE of sunshine. I can't wait till I wake up in the morning and have the sun trickling through my window and for it NOT to be dark when I come home from work.

I can't wait for grilling out and drinking ice cold beers on my front porch at 8:00pm and it still be light outside. Hurry up Daylight Savings and get me out of my S.A.D. funk. I need a little sunshine in my life. :)

"I've been waiting for that bright sunshine to show up and shine in my back door someday."

Happy Birthday, Long Weekend and other nonsense...

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

My sister's birthday was yesterday. She turned 25! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY KEELEY. She is at the beach right now helping with some photo shoots for Tuscaloosa Magazine so we are not celebrating until Wednesday... I can't wait! And I can't believe she is 25.

I spent the weekend in Atlanta with a few pledge sisters celebrating the upcoming marriage of one of them to her bf of 7 years. With every Bachelorette Weekend I attend, one thing stays the same. GOOD TIMES. Plus, champagne, laughing so hard you cry and gluttony beyond belief. I feel like a stuffed piggy right now.

On a side note, I threw my back out yesterday morning while getting out of the shower. WTF. I am 26, not 86. Gah.

On another side note, I apologize for the sporadic postings as of late. I have been quite busy with designing wedding programs and such for a dear friend whose's wedding is coming up on April 9th. I also have an art show coming up on Saturday, March 23. My weeknights and weekends consist of copious amounts of Diet Coke, fabric scraps, and Illustrator. With a few episodes of Mad Men thrown in.

On a third note, I got a new paper cutter. It is amazeballs.

The End.

For Anna Gordon, who is battling leukemia and fighting for her life right now waiting for the go ahead for her second bone marrow transplant. She is one of the strongest people I know and I wish that I had just one ounce of her courage and vigor. You can do this Anna, I believe in you.
