packing, packing, packing...

My plane leaves Thursday at 3:20 pm for Mendoza, Argentina. (^^^)I will be there for 3 months. How nervous am I? Oh my... but doesn't it look so pretty?

I will be taking Spanish classes so I am scanning my notes into my laptop from past classes. I'm on #73... it's amost like they're multiplying by the minute.

Oh. And I haven't started packing yet... but I do have a laundry basket full of gifts!

Here are some random inspirations for your martes (Tuesday in Spanish :))

(I don't have sources... :x)

Where are you traveling to these days?

Long time, no post

[Yup, I made mustache mugs for my friends ♥]

Things have been interesting lately from the end of the semester finals to me soon traveling to Argentina and trying to get ready for that! [February 25th!!]

Therefore, I have been slacking. But I'll really try to keep this up
for a while now. Really. I promise. I want to document my trip in Argentina somehow also, and I'm thinking this might be a good way to do it.

This week has been a little inspiration-less in my apartment since my parents came to take away all my things. I love to live with many, many things around me for inspirtion and with no posters, paintings or ability to paint [they took my paints too :/] I have been definitely feeling the lack. But I try to remember that in a few days, I will be home with all my inspiring things!

Without my paints and brushes, I have been having an extreme urge to paint. It's hard to not go down to the store and buy more. But I will resist for a few days.

Until then, this is how I have been solving my inspiration problem -- thank god for the internet.

This Day of the Dead laptop decal from beepart

Discoveries through Rachel Denbow's wonderful blog like:

I have also found this amazing
illustrator through a favorite nearby store called Oop

It's called Story People and they make my heart melt

These have been so inspiring to me in the last few days. I have actually been writing my own, with illustrations to pair with them soon.

I also have a few paintings I have been working on, which will be posted later.

Glad to be back!

p.s. I can't wait to see one of my amazing best friends Antonella in a few weeks!! It's been almost 3 years!
