Flowin like a river!

oooh the creative juices are just flowing all around!!! After a couple weeks of utter frustration about my work situation, things are all falling into place! God's favor was on me huge time yesterday during a meeting I had about a job and instead of (or along with) all these administrative type jobs I'm shuffling around trying to pay my bills, I'm also now a real live Costume Designer! I'm gonna be working on a production of The Amen Corner by James Baldwin at City College in Harlem. I rode the train part home way with the woman who I was meeting with and it was all I could do to keep it together and not dance around on the subway! The show opens in March and I'll do my best to keep everyone updated but if you don't hear from me for a while, you'll know why!

Also, my Etsy shop Roses Are Blue had its first sale! AND Bini's shop Herzrasen is up and running! Go see her awesome ipod pouches, journals, macbook covers, and more. She is such an amazing and inspiring friend! Look out for a tear-filled post when she and Domi move back to Germany....

creativity and inspiration!!!!

no no no....I'm not reverting to my 2008 style blog updates where they come every 2 months.... I've just been spending all my internet time the past couple weeks looking for jobs AND-cue herald trumpets-setting up my etsy shop!!!!! Go check out Roses Are Blue!!! My friends Bini (her shop will be open soon too!) and Domi have been so awesome in helping me set it up. From inspiration to photography we have been together all the way (and every day!) and I'm so grateful! It's so cool to have such creative and talented friends. I got so lucky somehow to have the people around me that I do. They are all so inspiring in their own ways.

Here's one who is currently blowing my mind with her talent. I've known Shannon for most of my New York life and when she left to go on tour this year I knew I'd miss her but I didn't know how much! She was in town for a gig last night and I got to see her play and she was amazing as per usual. This video isn't from last night but it is my favorite new song of hers. Enjoy!
