Showing posts from November, 2015

Long time, no see

It's so weird how time seems to speed up and slow down whenever it wants. I'm still in shock over the fact that 2015 is coming to an end. Where did that year go? What did I do all year long? Aye, that's a question for another time...

The whole year seemed to fly by, but these past few weeks have especially seemed to slip away from me. I think that's kind of how it happens every year. The "holidays" are always rather overwhelming for me. Prepping for family time and trying to make Christmas lists definitely stresses me out. That combined with the fact that the sun sets 30 MINUTES AFTER I GET OFF WORK makes time seem irrelevant. So here I am, end of November, still trying to think of the perfect gift to get each person I love. It's obviously pretty unrealistic but I like to think that one year it might happen...

I don't have the time (okay, maybe I do) or money (definitely don't have the money) to get everyone sentimental and personal gifts. I don&#…

Halloween 2015!

October is over people. OVER.
It's really true that time seems to go by faster as we get older. Haaaaalp, make it stop! Now it's November and there's Christmas decorations in Dillard's (I saw it with my own eyes) and I'm kind of freaking out. 
The one good thing about October being over is that Halloween happened! I really love the fact that this holiday is just based on having fun. Getting to dress up, stuff your face with candy, and kind of just be dumb for a day is pretty cool.
I've been wanting to do a couple's costume for a while now because I think they're super fun and cute, but also they require a fair amount of planning. Planning isn't my thing. The couple's costume thing didn't happen this year but I think my boyfriend and I pulled together some pretty awesome costumes anyway!

My boyfriend was Sam from Moonrise Kingdom (perfect, right?!) and I was the one and only Frida Kahlo! Frida is definitely an inspiration of mine and I was majorl…

LOL (Adam) JK

So I got a new book and I think it's awesome so I'm gonna share it! As I've mentioned probably a million times before, staying motivated is kind of a challenge these days so I was intrigued when I stumbled upon Adam J. Kurtz' book 1 Page at a Time.

I initially found Adam's work on Instagram (of course) probably through some dumb hashtag. I'm dedicated to dumb hashtags. Anyway, I instantly fell in love with his sense of humor and illustrations. I pretty much admire anyone that can draw because it's hard and I think it's 10x harder to actually develop your own style. He does both of those things while making awesome products like balloons, pins, books- you name it! Clearly, I was obsessed.
At first this book seemed kind of cheesy but then I realized that it's a-okay to be cheesy. I contemplated buying it online for a while but I haaaaate ordering things online and waiting. If I can get the same thing in a store and have it in my hands in 10 seconds then…
