Sometimes I'm just so inspired...

that i want to cry. lol

I saw this today and it just made me...hate myself for living in Indiana. hahaha If my boyfriend doesn't take me to her shop this summer, I will cry even harder. I just LOVE the new line of paintings! holy cow.

I got inspired to do a new line of paintings, myself today. :] My lovely, Tori gave me the idea. thanks, dear. I'm re-painting my room this summer which I'm really excited about. Something I haven't done since we moved into our house 5 or 6 years ago. I'm painting it this color:

or maybe something a little lighter. Tori made the comment that it would be like I was living on the inside of a peach. :] and that one sentence made me want to do a series of paintings based on James and the Giant Peach!

I'm very inspired by this idea and can't wait to get home and get going on them. I'm trying to decide what I want to paint them ON though...something different besides canvases.... hmm.

I'm sorry i don't have any scraps to share lately. I'm really swamped with work, school, finals, projects, etc that i haven't had much time to scrap. I DO have one work in progress though. pics on that soon. I also bought new yarn yesterday!
this one called "Mango"
this one called "Mardi Grey"
and this one called "Sierra Ombre"
I have a new bow going in another coral colored yarn called "Goldfish." Mom and I are having a HUGE sale on Memorial Day Weekend, so I'm trying to get some products made for that and I'm really excited about it! Lots going on!

alright. bed. I'm out. <3

Hey lady!!

Thanks for the comment. :) Yeah I'm pretty content with life right now. Yeah back at good old Taco Shoppe, but I'm pretty sure it's my last year. I'm already starting to dread it, so I'm pretty sure that's a good sign that I'm ready to move on.

I know right, hooray for me being a grown up. Well, he got his before me, so maybe I was slightly jealous, but I NEEDED a new one. My Mac no longer held a charge AT ALL and it was just so slow.

Yeah, I feel good about getting back into church, I was really active in high school, but then I went to BSU and never found a church in Muncie. So, now that I'm back home it's good to be back at my church. I'd love to see you :)

I'm jealous about his t-shirt quilt. I have all of my shirts ready to be sewn into one. Just waiting on money to actually get it done. They are so cool and that's awesome that your Mom does them. :)

P.S. Love your blog!! <3
