Today's inspiration is:

 Cassandra July on Glee.

My favorite Kate Hudson movies are:
Almost Famous and Raising Helen
I've seen them more than 3 times each.

My blouse was thrifted.

My shoes were thrifted.

Messy things I like are:
this idea was inspired by

My art journal from Jan 12, 2013

Sometimes it is

After all this time,

Life has a way of still surprising me.
