I want to go back here. So bad.


You tell ‘em ladies. 

I was very blessed to have been able to go to comic con and booth sit for my dear friend Greg Spalenka in artist alley. He’s a fantastic illustrator and has been a mentor for me for a long time.
I’m feeling pumped to make art again!

Haven’t done this in a while. Definitely needed with all the ups and downs lately. Let’s focus on the positive shall we? 

  • went to hawaii with the family
  • swam with turtles and dolphins
  • really spent some awesome quality time with the parents that I haven’t done in a looonggg time. 
  • was asked to be a bridesmaid for one of my old friends
  • been able to grab lunch with my oldest friend a few times in the same month. RECORD FOR US. 
  • celebrated my friend’s 21st and got to go salsa dancing
  • went to a masked ball with friends and ran into some familiar faces. 
  • had my baby cousins from holland visit!!! 
  • Played with them every day and went on a few awesome adventures with them. 
  • played hooky at work to drive to nevada and surprise my grandpa for his birthday with the rest of the family. 
  • quit my abusive job 
  • got a legit logo design gig
  • was asked to go to comic con again to help out my illustrator friend and MIRACULOUSLY found a place to stay last minute. 
  • Sold a piece of art and some jewelry at an art show! 
  • now having the time to really get my own show up and running
  • made amends with an old friend

I’m going to hit the ground running. There’s nothing holding me back now. 


My cousins think I’m a human coloring book generator.

They also know I can’t say no to them.

I was feeling cute.
And then everyone at work thought it was hilarious to call me either aunt jemima or we can do it girl.

Come on. Is Rosie so hard to remember?

Can’t tell if he’s being sarcastic or not…..


I took part in a meet and greet today and had such a good time setting up a pop up shop! Lots of talented people, lots of good conversation, a couple pieces were even bought. I’d call it a good day.

In case you don’t follow my art blog! I make and draw lots of pretty things. Check it out!

My cousin was insanely interested in learning some tricks. I just had to say yes. 

Some snap shots from the labyrinth of jareth last night! Wings, flower crowns, makeup and velvet bustle skirt by yours truly.

I don’t want vacation to end. 
I seriously couldn’t be more thankful for this trip and the quality time with my family. Everything has been such a blessing as well as one hell of a time. 

Until next time Hawaii. I will be back for you.
