Hello Monday!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent a lot of my weekend doing "me" things like goofing around on the internet, drinking fluffy cappucinos and did sooooooo much sewing so I am greeting this Monday with a lot of smiles. Why not start off this week with a list of things I am digging right now??

I love sweater coats!! Love them! As a "you survived this job" gift I bought myself this coat from Patagonia--cashing in on those prodeals last minute while I have them and before my company loses them again. This coat looks good with everything. Big boots and jeans fan but it looked pretty awesome with a get-up I initially thought was a bit goofy-- cute Gola sneaks, leggings, tunic tank and Free People thermal. I wore that around all day last week and that might become a staple outfit in my arsenal. 

I've been curating some lists on Etsy. I get a little click-happy when I do browsing and needed a little organizing session which I did this past weekend. My plan this coming Christmas is to try to buy as many gifts off Etsy as possible for my friends and family--support those amazingly talented people, people!

I signed up for classes for the coming quarter at SCAD. I am excited to be moving away from pre-reqs like I am doing now and moving into some more technical stuff. I only have one class starting in January so it will be a nice easy transition for me when I move back to the Mitten and get settled.

I started gathering inspiration for my new website this weekend. I have been doing A LOT of research and I am hoping to build and expand. If you are a frequent visitor hear you see that the look changes often--I am just playing around. I hope to start really really thinking and start making a new site within the next two months. I am so excited to create a website I always envisioned for myself!

I did this a little while ago and I am thinking of doing it again--going through my boards on Pinterest and doing a little downsizing. It's always fun to see your style and tastes evolve but when you gather so much inspiration it can get really overwhelming when you are actually trying to find something. This past winter I had 5000+ pins--you can see I sized down quite a bit and I really think it is time to do it again. Woo! Nerdy tech cleaning!

I grew up in an amazing artist friendly community and I am so excited to be back there. There are so many art associations and I am hoping to join a few and really start get-to-getting on some stuff. My plan is to start painting like a fiend when I get back to the mitten. It is hard to quantify the shear amount of ideas I have in my noggin right now. 

Oh to-do lists. How I love you! I have one going right now full of things to pack and do before I move home and a list of things to wrap up at work before I leave a week from Friday. Best to-do list ever! I am so close to moving home and something new! 

I am using this lovely wallpaper from Design Love Fest as my background on my computer. I thought it was pretty fitting with all the changes and work I am putting into changing my current situation. I do have moments of doubt but at the end of the day I think what I am doing is the right thing for me. 

Hope everyone is having a beautiful, inspired-filled Fall Monday!
