Number 4 & 5

more self portraits! just for fun... AND to create things all the time. last year i spent most of the time dreaming, drooling and wishing i'd make more pretty things... but this year, i just going to make it happen! stop making excuses! focus! reward yourself!

here i've started painting on a hard suitcase. it was a pretty grungy creamy color so i'm sprucing it up with a 'pretty pink city' :) i have about 6 of these in all different colors that i'm going to display up on a BIG EMPTY shelf that has been driving me crazy for the past 2 years almost.and here is my take on Elsie's ipod owl case... except, as you can see, mine is wayyyy bigger. this girly (who looks kind of grumpy... what could i do to make her look happier?) is holding my new Kindle. i love it! thank you for following my blog... this year is going to be sooo much fun!
oh and pssst... these girls inspire me sooo much! Rachel, Elsie, Holly, LA... but you all knew that already! :D

Love the suitcase. I think they look so much better once they have some design on them and they make a studio space really fun. I stash mine around the house after I've decorated them.
