i just wanna catch your eye

a food post. having my own kitchen is wonderful. i'm getting really cozy in my apartment and studio at school. it feels like home.
fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper
chocolate, peanut butter, oatmeal no-bake cookies
chocolate chip scones
yummy snacks
a standby, pasta and salad
soup, a cleveland essential
coffee, berries, hand-whipped cream
home-made waffles with whipped cream

a fun little exercise... if you have a minute i suggest you do it too, it makes you think harder about yourself than you would think!

I Always:
♥ check the closet and under my bed before i go to sleep
♥ leave my phone on and near me when i sleep
♥ listen to music while i drive (always mix cd's)
♥ drink 2% milk
I Sometimes:
♥ wear my pj's the next day as my real clothes
♥ eat breakfast for dinner
♥ feel lonely even when i am with friends
♥ get dressed up when i know i won't be going out
I Never:
♥ read the last page of a book before i finish
♥ eat meat
♥ put sugar in my coffee
♥ miss a chance to go dumpster diving

i try hard to pretend

so i've finally put some things up on my etsy site. just some little collages so far... here are a couple of examples:

they are on the back of vintage playing cards and are covered in a protective sealing of gel medium. i'm selling them for $5 with free shipping anywhere in the world and if you purchase one i can almost guarantee you i'll add in something else special that i've been working on! you can see all of them on my other blog as well as the etsy site of course!

as school starts i'll most likely be adding ceramic mugs, cups, plates, and bowls to my site as well as some hand embroidered pieces i am currently working on so keep your eyes pealed!!

and if you have any questions about the work you can of course reach me through this blog, my other blog, or the etsy site. hope you guys check it out!

and i think that we have a lot of things to talk about

just a short post because things are crazy in my life, i've just moved in to my new apartment in cleveland, but there is still lots to do before school starts on monday. once i get my new fancy pants camera i will make a detailed post about my place... cause i love it! but i wanted to post this lovely award that grace gave me. its very sweet.

Now the rules of the award are to describe where you see yourself in 10 years and then list other blogs that you would like to pass out the award to.

Well, in 10 years i hope to be living in portland in the pearl district with a job at a school or art museum or gallery, a nice vegetarian boy to live with, and a great big dog.

I'd like to pass this along to a couple of blogs that have honestly gotten me through some tough times with their posts and sometimes even encouraging comments from the beginning. these are blogs who's words and images never cease to inspire me. i wanna know what their future looks like.

love grows in me like a demon

soooo doing this in my new bedroom.
a seriously great idea from yvan
need to make these.

need to make these
now, i wouldn't say that i am going through an identity crisis, but after a couple months of not changing my hair or getting more tattoos... i'm feeling the winds of change. i need something different. and i adore these bangs.

i also adore this illustration, and part of is totally going to be my next tattoo, i just want to exchange this bird for the passenger pigeon, an extinct bird native to the carolinas

also wanting to dye my hair again. such an urge.

this picture totally embodies who i want to be. it makes me miss my dreads so much and makes me want more more more tattoos. i really can't wait any longer for another one. maybe a birthday present to myself in september... that's next month! i can't believe i'll be 20 so soon.

cleveland in two days.

(so sorry i didn't credit everything, please chime in if you wish)

dream of togetherness, turned into a brighter mess

halloween in the 1930's. my grandma is in the white dress in the front.
hilarious award my gma got.
my aunt marcia
my mama
no idea, but look at her face!
also no idea, but hilarious
again, no clue who these people are, but they are hysterical
my mom's family, not sure about the devil horns on my grandpa
grandma on the right, i love this picture

such adorable pictures, totally singing in the rain worthy


i'm moving back up to cleveland in 5 days! i can't believe it, expect loads of pictures after i've moved in to my apartment. i'm 19 years old and i'll be living on my very own for the first time.

my mama's the one blowing out the candles

grandma and grandpa
