I have been meaning to post this since the beginning of MAY, but as we all know, life gets in the way of our better intentions. This is going to be a short and sweet shout out to
in beautiful Pacific Beach, CA (San Diego for all the non-San Diegan readers :)
They are not primarily a boutique, they are actually a framing shop (that’s been in business since 1973!!) that offers numerous services:
- Museum quality framing
- Shadowbox picture frames
- Frame Restoration
- Memorabilia Framing
- Military Display Cases
- Frame Repair
- Glass Repair
- Custom ideas/work
They wanted to add to their current services by featuring local fine artists in their shop which has now expanded to jewelry artists, stationary designers, ceramic arts, and home decor. If you’re ever in the area, or want to go exploring, head down and check out this lovely shop nestled in fabulous Pacific Beach!
Also, I’ve updated the stockist tab!! It’s pretty :)
Okay, now I’m out. Have a lovely day everyone!
OH and follow Gallery at Lands End on
Was AMAZING. I was a little more preoccupied with getting her my gift than I wanted to be…or should have been, but regardless, I still had a TON of fun with fabulous souls. She is such a stellar performer and you really get lost in the whole time that you share with her. I mean, I am ALWAYS thinking about things I need to do, but not once while I was there…and actually, all day…did I think about any of responsibilities. Even the next day I felt like I was still floating in that delicious, artsy, inspired, touched, state of blissfulness (mind you, I was also DEAD-SOBER, that’s how powerful her performances are for me). Anyways, if you ever have the chance to experience this woman live, do it. Grab a freaking glowstick, and DO IT.
Here’s the rest of our time in pictures :)
First up, obligatory shoe shopping. I ended up sticking with combat boots…although the beige sparkly ones were VERY tempting.
And then makeup!!!
(mine before she finished my lips…I almost kept it like this, hahah!)
done by me :)
And now our outfits!
Little sister…in the bra I wore to the Born this Way Ball….haha
A perfect, PERFECT, day-night-and next day…and yes, we went to In-N-Out afterwards!!! Hehehe PAWS UP!
I do hope you enjoyed my featured image. I am striving to be less and less of a “chicken” each day and will admit that applying to a show like patchwork took some mental talking myself into. I was game, but it’s always a bit scary. Anyhow, besides a wee bit of nerves, I am absolutely excited about this show!!! It will be my very first patchwork show and the biggest show that I will have participated in to boot. I would also like to whole-heartedly blame show prep for my hiatus from blogging at all….(still trying to get better at this!!!)
Here are some helpful images I’ve made for the big day :)
I’ll be in booth number 68 and will be posting both of these images to Instagram and Facebook again as the day gets closer.
okay, and now for the truth…yes, show prep has been keeping me very busy, alongside some freelance work etc, but I’m happy to say I am getting better at relaxing and telling myself to go have some “no goals or expectations attached” F-U-N. Additionally, I recently received a promotion at Trader Joe’s that puts me in a fancy shirt and changed my hours on a few days quite a bit…so I’ve been adapting to a semi-new role, new hours, and feeling a little more spent at the end of my shift than I used to.
However, with that being said, I’ve been feeling so very, very grateful lately. For opportunities, the people in my life, and existing in general. My life feels full and brimming with fun to dos and activities…and although this happy fullness is keeping me from falling asleep, I’m so thankful.
up n coming in the world of jonnie:
-LADY GAGA (thus outfit assembly ;) )
-Store party/ company party

so many good things!!!!!
