Spring Is Here ][ My Fave Time of the Year


1. Purge old raw materials - 1/2 DONE 

2. Clean creative space - DONE

3. Design new logo - DONE

4. Update website - 1/2 DONE

5. Start designing home decor - YES

6.  Continue designing wearables - YES


{There's still more to do, and this MERCURY IN RETROGRADE is really challenging my spirit, BUT forward I move, baby steps count!}


Home decor is part of the mix now and each piece will coordinate with designs such as aprons + bandanas, botanicals, and table linens + pillows, to create an overall LIFESTYLE collection.  It's an exciting venture and the collection will be sold on IG and in select local Long Beach indie shops, so stay tuned!
