Out & About

This weekend I actually got out of the house for the first time in forever, it was so nice to be around people and doing things I used to do. Like going to a quilt/craft show! It was a little over the top, but it was nice to look around and think about different ideas I've had for a while.

My friend found this awesome DIY project, who doesn't love easy clothing accents?!
Hopefully I will be able to try this soon!

I also finally got to go to the movies! One that I was really excited about! Begin Again, it was everything I could have hoped for, something to completely get engrossed in. I've listened to "Lost Stars" and "Coming Up Roses" all day long, it made my Monday quite fabulous.
If you like Adam Levine's voice at all, you need to listen to this.........


And finally good old fashion on fire inspiration. I discovered this artist on a fluke, and I am quite enamored with and blown away by his work. Peter Aurisch's line work and use of color stopped me in my tracks. I always get inspired when I go to my favorite museums, I haven't had the chance to do that in months. I haven't been this blown away by someone's work in a very long time.



His drawings are really amazing to and his geometric shapes remind me of Picasso.




Anyway, it's nice to go out and about and be inspired and kind of get back to normal. What's been the best thing you've done or seen in awhile?

Ooh, I'm loving that cute diy! I love embellishing old tshirts and making them exciting again. I've also seen Peter's tattoos before, and oh my gosh they are just stunning.

The best thing I've done in a while is go to a bbq at the beach with friends...nothing like food on the water to help relax!
