Why don’t I do this more often?  That’s what I think every. single. time. I go to a concert or a live show of some sort.  I think, yes this is where it’s at!  Then a million years go by before I do it again.  Either way, Lana Del Rey was a blast.  Also, teenagers now aways. When did teenagers become so.. teenagery?  I know, that doesn’t make sense.. but the entire time we waited in line (which, thanks to task rabbit was not nearly that long and deserves a post of its own because I find it to be a thoroughly interesting topic) I kept thinking to myself why are these people acting like teenagers!  Oh wait, it’s because they are.  The whole take a million selfies and do everything for an instagram post is very much alive.  So are short shorts in freezing windy weather and flannel jackets tied to your waste.

I just recently discovered Lana Del Rey’s song Once Upon a Dream for the new Disney movie.  OBSESSED.

More Balloons

Because what is better than a big shiny balloon on your birthday?  Hopefully a stamped drawing of one!  I can’t really take all the credit for this balloon, since it was inspired I mean pinspired by an invite on pinterest.   The balloon invite was just the right amount of quirky and informative.  The idea of the entire balloon taking up the whole card while adding color and keeping it simple all at the same time sort of sealed the deal for me. Plus! I love easy lettering.  To start I obviously had to try with gold sparkles, but moving forward it might be fun to play around with the white space more.

This one went to my Cousin Heather.  30! let me say it again THIRTY!  In the cousin line up if Heather is turning into an official 30 year old adult.. it means I’m next.  Wowza. Heather had a sweet picnic in the park with friends and family.  It was so fun to just lay on a blanket and do nothing!  There was so much good food and good company.  Seriously need to do it more often.


Here is the inspiration.  Don’t you love that white and black?
