Are these girls cool or what?! They are so mismatched, but go PERFECTLY well together.

This week has been so hectic…in a great way! It took me a while to really get into the whole freelance thing… but it’s getting easier and easier to navigate. Let’s just say I had to spend a lengthy amount of time with numbers (excel, but simpler) and start getting myself organized. I’m just about on my feet… and it feels great. I’m glad I didn’t completely crumble in the overwhelming beginnings of starting your own business. It’s so surreal to me still…  because I really love what I do.

P.S. the new RUE comes out today… can’t wait to show you the new illustrations in it. I think they are my favorites so far.


It’s safe to say I’m a chair fanatic- and who isn’t a fan of the Eames?

I have this vision of moving into a real place (not that my place isn’t real… but you know. a REAL home) and having lots of different classic designs around one simple dining table. Like a mix n match type deal. I just think it would look eclectic and charming all at once.

What’s your dream piece of furniture? I could go on for days about mine… but for now, I’ll stick to paper form.


I was playing with  neon glitter over the weekend, and somehow ended up with this pattern.  I try to create something every week that’s random, and totally free. No pressure, just whatever happens. Do you guys ever do that? It’s so refreshing!
