Is it halloween already?

(Sebastiaan Bremer, Flowers It Calls Forth From Their Buds)

Because there are cobwebs everywhere on my blog. Har har. I know, I know, I'm never here anymore. But fear not! I am still alive (to the 1 or 2 people wondering).

It's just been all over the place lately.
  • I job search (with no luck) almost every day. I It's definitely been a struggle feeling useless and directionless half the time, but growing me so much in patience and faith/trust in God. I'm looking mostly for graphic design jobs... but I'm thinking my B.A. shouldn't pridefully keep me from working at Starbucks. Haha.
  • Have been working on finishing editing a wedding I should have finished a long time ago (for shame!). Check it out and comment please :).
  • Experimenting with watercolor for a wedding invite. I'll let you guys know how it turns out (especially you, Crystal!) :). So far I'm liking the colors but I think I will like it better when I get it scanned and edited in Illustrator/Photoshop. I am not exactly a watercolor wiz, my experience extends to my watercolor cards.
  • Went up to SB + then Yosemite area a few weeks ago for a retreat (I'm so lazy I haven't even posted photos from the last time I went!)
  • Second shot for another wedding, this time on a yacht! Definitely not my best since it was a very new experience... but an experience that I'm very thankful for none the less.
  • Have been experiencing the pain of a long-distance relationship. Bah humbug. However, learning the awesomeness of snail mail :). Any tips from people who have been through this?

Meanwhile, I'm so obsessed with those Sebastiaan Bremer images (pictured above)! I saw them a while back but forgot about them, and when I saw one again on a friend's facebook I was smitten all over gain. Makes me want to take out all my baby pictures and drip paint on them to frame.

Guess what guys?

(fresh fruits at home all the time. woohoo!)

This week
I paid off my college loans (correction, loan)!!

In my first two years of college, my mom helped me with payments here and there, but for the most part I paid for college entirely on my own. I have no idea how I have no debt... except to say that it must not have been entirely on my own but rather, with the help and grace of God. I am blessed.
