The month of July is going to be a hectic one… I’ve got some design submissions going out for a publication next week (always such a rush!), some new designs in the works for Paperless Post, and my 2013 collection underway for Bella Figura. Yes, 2013. And then there are my lovely Hello Tenfold brides and grooms, with a couple custom screen printed projects going out the door in the next few weeks. So excited for that. And this weekend? Maybe some painting, maybe some thrifting, and definitely hanging out with my mom, who is in town for her birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!). What do you have planned?
