Did you know that I've been putting some of my work on Society6? You can get art prints, canvas prints, cards, iPhone cases, iPhone skins and laptop skins with my designs printed on them. I've been designing with iPhone cases or skins in mind though.

I would really appreciate it if you would stop by my shop and have a look. And if you really love me you'll set up a Society6 account (so easy) and click the little 'promote' button on a couple of your faves!

Since I think you're so awesome, I'll let you in on a little secret. If you click RIGHT HERE you will get FREE shipping! But remember, you have to visit my shop via that link if you want to be eligible for the discount.

The View from my Phone: Week 31

I have a confession to make. Some of these photos are not actually from this week. I've been a bit of a lady-hermit this week and had to steal some old photos in order to complete this post! Can you tell which ones? But don't lose all faith in me yet; I have couple good posts coming up this week. Look out for a DIY, another Books and Nooks, and a post about my finished painting from the painting class I took.

Paris at Sixteen

Posted on July 26, 2012 and tagged Art & Photography, Personal with comments

At the age of 16 I was fortunate enough to go on an amazing trip to Paris. Without my parents. Did I mention that I was 16 years old? Ten years later, it still remains one of the best weeks of my life. I stuffed my face at every bakery I passed, I ordered a beer in restaurant, went to the Eiffel Tower at night, cruised down La Seine and saw some beautiful works of art. I just dug up some of these old photos, I hope you like them!

This is as close as you're going to get to seeing a photo of me! Back then I didn't own tweezers and I cut my own bangs. Also, my luggage got lost so my outfits were all ill-fitting pieces I borrowed from friends.

I don't know that red-headed lady. Isn't it weird to think that you could be in some stranger's vacation photos?

I even bought a roll of black and white film, ooh la la! Remember when you had to get entire roll of film just to take one photo in black and white? It would have been a lot easier if I had an iPhone back then.

One of the highlights was seeing the Picasso museum. I could have spent all day there.

I want to go back so bad, but I'm almost afraid it won't be as good as the memory! What about you? Traveled to any cool places?
