My art journal page from February 5, 2013
It says:

Life is messy.
Life is colorful.
Life is imperfect.
so am I,
but only


  1. I remember my cousins having that elephant game. Reminded me of that old Mr. Bucket one.

  2. oh my how cute that photo of little you is :) I love childhood photos.
    and how beautiful are those strong red runway looks! I think I should wear something red this weekend to honour Valentine's Day :P

  3. We love Valentino red. It´s a classic!!!! Your vintage photo of yourself is adorable!

  4. you and i have very similar tastes when it comes to designer collections. i always enjoy what you showcase here.

    you are the cutest little kid, just like your little nieces & nephew.


    also about being tired, I go to bed a lot earlier than I used too or else Id be exhausted by noon. I'm usually pretty good, with the odd week where I'm so tired I can barely do anything. practice for being up all night with the little one I suppose!

  5. Those Alexis Mabille outfits are gorgeous. Red is so romantic and full of life at the same time. (I kinda wish I had more of it, now that I think about it.) Love seein' your journal pages, as always! The poem is really pretty!
