A kick start to your week

Hi there! I hope your summer is going great so far! 
I have been using this summer to get some projects done around the house, start some new work projects and just relax a little with some friends. 
I'll be back to regular blog posting at the start of August... 
But I couldn't stay away for too long. 

My dream yard....

Here are a few links to some great blog posts that I have been enjoying... 
Stunning photography of a winter Paris trip.
Kelly Oxford is just hilarious.
One of my favorite artists was given a whole week of praise. 

And here are some things I'd like to get that I pinned recently. 
I want to create a wall of vintage photos of people swimming...

Weekly Picks: June 10th

I only have one Weekly Pick this week... 

The gallery opening for John Henry Toney at
Yalo Studios on Friday, the 10th. 
From 6PM until 9PM, come mingle, drink, and 
most importantly, just support the art scene in the area, 
even if you can't make it out, by spreading the word. 

Yalo Studio is one of those places that you will always 
find a special piece of art that is super special and unique. 
On top of that, affordable. 

Hope to see you in the Valley!! 


It is amazing how busy I have already been this summer.... I have started on a few different projects and the store has been busy. All great news, but it hasn't allowed me much time to blog. I went back and forth with feeling really bad about that, but I've come to realize, it's ok. My whole adult life, I've always had a lot going on. Different projects that keep me going in different directions. Always pretty busy. I tell myself that I want to slow down. So I do. But when I do, I can't stop thinking of all the things I want to be doing. 
I just need to embrace it. That's who I am. I will always have a new project that I'm working on. Most of my ideas, I'll see all the way to the end. Others will fizzle out because I don't have the same drive to see it through that I thought I might in the beginning. They don't have the same jazz that others might. 
With that said.... I am hammering about a plan for myself to blog on a regular basis. I'm using the summer to figure out a plan. One that makes me want to get up and write. Take more pictures for the blog. 
I also want to change the layout. It might mean that I will be moving the blog to another place, but in the meantime, I'll stay here. 

I hope that whatever direction I take it in, that you will go there with me. 

Thank you. 

PS.... I have lots of great news that I will be able to share with you in the next few weeks. Ideas that are taking shape and such that I can start talking about soon....
