To 2012.

For the past couple of weeks, I've dabbled with the idea of a blog post or two. I do have a handful of updates that I'd love to share. First, I've begun stamping again. After a few years away, I couldn't be happier to revel in the creativity my (ten years worth of) supplies provide me. There is a cool serenity found when one cranks up the country music, closes their childhood bedroom door and decides that tempting turquoise really does work well with pretty in pink. I no longer know what patterned papers are in fashion nor when the next Stampin' Up catalog comes out, but I do know that my family members and friends still enjoy receiving a handmade card.

I've also found joy in physical exercise and healthy cooking for the first time in my entire life. I've taken up yoga and dabbled in corefusion. I made chocolate chip cookie dough hummus. I stock my fridge with almond milk. Who knew?

I even found a type of law I like (government contracts/real property) and received a full time job offer after the bar. Somehow, I truly became aware that adulthood is upon me. Whether I like it or not.

I realized the importance of old friends, but also of new.

So, with that. I leave you with a simple card, which I made yesterday. I hope all is well with all of you. Please, please, please post some of your life updates!

Happy Stamping,

to 2011.

So, I'm not sure if anyone still reads this, BUT I'm sure it will pop up on someone's google reader (besides my dad's of course). Anyway, I, like most bloggers, have a few new years resolutions. But, first, again like most bloggers, I'd like to reflect on what 2010 was.

I'd like to think of it as the year I gained clarity, lost my grandmother, became half a lawyer, breathed more, felt true academic challenge, gave up scrapbooking, lost twenty pounds and spent the entire year within the United States (a first in a very long time). I realized that money is necessary but not imperative. And that I really do love quotes, but don't like blueberries. That farmer's markets are beautiful. And on this last day of the year, I feel a pretty awesome calm.

So, to 2011. I'm hoping for another 10 lbs lost. To finally figure out what kind of law I want to practice. To go to Cuba and Italy. To go to the dupont farmers market three times a month, even when its 20 degrees out. To blog more, even if its about food and cooking instead of scrapbooking. To get back to volunteering, possibly even in a legal capacity. To try Bikram Yoga, even if deep down I know I'll hate it. To wear less makeup. To embrace 23 and wrinkle cream. To try three more food trucks. To 2011. I hope you'll join me.

I'm Back!!!!

Wow, it really has been a while! I'm home for the summer in Sunny Miami! I had an AMAZING first year in law school, although admittedly I had NO time for stamping. I truly have not had any time for myself. But, alas, now its summer and my copics, ink pads and plethora of stamps have been staring me down. So please, join me this summer for some stamping, some frolicing and a whole lot of fun!

Alas, I am also no longer a teenager. In fact, tomorrow I turn 22! Can you believe it?

Ok, enough about me! Lets get back to the stamping. My goal is a card a day (I'm also working at a Law Firm). So please, be my sponsor (not financially, more like AA-but sober and with stamps), make me stamp. If you haven't seen a card in a while, write me! I love getting feedback. Also, in my absence many of my youtube videos have gotten literally tens of thousands of views, so also thank you for that!

I bid adou, with a simple card for my sisters birthday! Its my first one back on the wagon, so please be gentle with the comments :)

Happy Stamping!

An Update.

I've stopped stamping.


I'm not sure when exactly it happened. But it has. Between law school and traveling I just lost my passion. I am still trying to find creativity in everyday things and to do something creative daily, but I just don't find myself reaching for my ink pad.

I haven't updated this because I thought that would make it too final. I thought I would start stamping again. I don't mean to sound melodramatic, after all it is arts and crafts, but it was such a big part of my life for so long.

I want to thank each and everyone of you who has come to visit this blog, who has commented, who has shared a little bit of yourself with me, I am forever grateful for that. Your passion for this hobby truly inspires me and I am sorry that I am no longer able to bring that inspiration back for you.

So somehow I got totally confused and ended up doing last weeks sketch challenge instead of the color challenge. However, I really do like the way this one came out so I thought I'd share it with all of you!

I used the {Beauty of Nature} set with one of my all time favorites {Inspired By Asia}! I colored them all in copics. Hope you like the card!
