Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.

the little black cloud finally went away.

I finished it this morning.

It’s been converted to a pdf and sent to the editor.

Now all I have to do is defend it and I’ll be official.

Sigh. of. Relief.

In celebration I decided to take a drive to the North Shore to visit Haleiwa Town.

Browsing through the beachy boutiques I found a pair of handmade earrings that I loved. The perfect no more little black cloud present to myself.

So happy to have pushed through and finish what once seemed impossible.

oceans away.

My sister posted these beautiful photos of my niece on her blog yesterday.

My niece, beautiful Olivia, is the smartest little two year old you could ever meet. Two years old and she can spell her name, “play scrabble” and likes to “google” for Moose & Zee.

I miss her and my family dearly.

Art is the unique result of a unique temperament. – Oscar Wilde

Remember that pottery class that I talked about way back in March?
Well I finally got my little ceramic creations back from the kiln today!
I love the way they turned out & finally seeing a finished result has inspired me to keep at it. Hopefully when my schedule clears up I’ll be able to meet up with some friends I met in class and we can continue to learn new techniques together.
I was in a creative mood all day today & as a result I did a quick little art project & rearranged some wooden crates to act as a make-shift book shelf for my cookbooks.
I’ve had a bunch of these simple glass frames from Ikea & decided to make use of one be framing one of my favorite quotes. I just printed the text off of MS Word & then painted over it with watercolor & acrylics. It hardly took 5 minutes to make and I really like how it turned out!
I also recently finished that painting I started a few months ago and I’m planning on sharing a post on the process of painting it this week sometime.
