April Showers

I'm stuck at home with Strep throat! Ugh!
I haven't posted many designs this month. I think it's because I've been spending my limited free time working on a vintage redesign. They take forever to do! So in the mean time I've been making these simple mirror repeats, which I love :) I want a latch hook rug made from this design. Shaggy and in bright colors! Maybe I'll make one someday using this site LeftSource.

¡Yo Quiero!

So, I'm thinking about posting occasionally about the things in life I want, but can't afford :( I think I need to do this as therapy. I'm facing 30 and I'm nowhere near where I wanted to be in life at this age. I want to own property, a home, a garden, & be near the ocean. But those things all require $$$. And the IRS took every last dime from me this month because one of my jobs (that's right, JOBS, I work 3 of them) is a 1099. Plus I'm paying off a pile of student loans. I need a way to vent. I need an outlet. I need to store all the great things I see in this world and desire. I know material things do not create happiness, but they sure are nice to have. Plus I might just throw in places I want to travel to, etc... Just think of them as collages of my dream world.

So here it is: 

¡Yo Quiero!

I feel better!

Spring Fling

Saturday was such a tease! 
Today was so overcast. They're predicting that for all this week. But, It was hot and gorgeous over the weekend! I went paddle boarding a.k.a. SUP. There were packs of Brah's out all over the beach, which is still really strange to me (The boys are so bromatic in this state)! I got a mean sunburn from napping on the beach after my SUP session but don't regret it a damn bit,
the sun felt amazing! 
I Heart California!
