it's been a while...

Wow, I can't believe a whole month has past and I haven't shown my face around here!! The entire month of February has been a very exciting, active, life-changing one. Great things have happened, and some not so great ones that in the end have made me stronger. There were some fun, new projects (which I'll share with you by the end of the week), a few moves from one apartment, to another...and to another, but now, everything is just starting to adjust to the way it has to be.

I'll tell you a little about my life the last couple of years: about two and a half years ago my boyfriend (I guess I can call him my husband now after more than eleven years together, right?) and I moved to L.A. in search of grand new adventures only to be returning a year later to San Diego after the death of my brother. Ever since we moved out of our own place back those almost three years ago we've been living with relatives from one place to another. Of course, we are greatly appreciative for the help we received, but hey, after a while you yearn for your own place.

Well, finally this beginning of February, we were unexpectedly given the opportunity to move into our own place, and, get this, the same exact building we left those three years ago. It's been a very difficult three years, with many attempts at starting my own [stationery] business and other design projects, but always having to put things on hold due to financial reasons. This year started like no other, with many new projects and adventures, and now that I am back where I never should have left in the first place it feels as if things are settling where they have to in order to move forward and CHASE my dreams. It is totally a full circle experience and many new ideas are in the cards.

I chose these wonderful illustrations by talented illustrator/designer Zara Picken, whom I've shared before, because they drew me in with the bright, yet soft, colors. And now that I review this post it seems as though they are a perfect fit. Check her site out for more great work.
