old man winter is a rat bastard

im still ignoring him

01 March 2009

its March!

...that means Spring is just around the corner.. no matter that the weatherman tells me to batten down the hatches! a foot of snow is on its way? i beg your pardon, mister meteorologist, but i dont care to believe you...
its a new month, the days are getting longer, and my new line,
like that brave baby daffodil, is finally out from the cover of winter!

i love a well*styled product shot...

special touches - simple elements such as
fresh flower petals, coordinating or contrasting elements,
heavenly yet natural light,
or even a fantastically creative colorway choice chart
- goes to show -
tiny efforts make a huge difference

just you wait

Ive got new projects in the works that i'm very excited to reveal.... just not quite yet. I'm beginning to wonder if i'm suffering from "analysis paralysis," which I recently read about over at Holly's Blog, as the 6th installment in her Creativity Series. Im finding the entire series quite inspirational. As for my new line, Im hoping to iron out a few details and get things rolling by week's end, that is, if i dont delay it further by wondering and overthinking... and wondering and overthinking... If you feel you may suffer from said condition, perhaps you'd like to
diagnose yourself.

oh what a lazy weekend it was!
i got nothing much accomplished but reading and resting.
these days i have a bad case of spring fever, so im dreaming of what
new to do in my yard this year; cant wait!
