10 Things I Never Thought I'd Be Doing

1. Pack up & move nearly 1000 miles away
2. Actually go to school for art & feel that I'm successful in life
3. Help renovate a house in my twenties
4. Be unemployed
5. Make things & sell them
6. Learn to code (& continue to learn) blogs & websites
7. Travel around the midwest
8. Have my own (real) studio
9. Live where it snows, a lot

10. Be as happy as I am

Most of these things happened in the last year or so.  This just goes to show how much I've grown, changed, & experienced this year.  It's been an amazing ride & seriously, 2013 is starting off awesome.  

This past year hasn't been with out its struggles but it's been full of things that I've been certain about. I've never felt more certain about the decisions I've made in my life.  Moving was hard & has resulted in an awful struggle with unemployment.  But I see it as an opportunity.

I'm pretty happy right now.

  1. This is a great post, you are doing some amazing things :-) x

  2. You just made me happy by sharing how happy you are ;)

  3. Your post is so inspiring. I feel like I gotta get me out there doing things I wouldn't ever think of to see how far I can go and how much I can do!!! That would be so awesome. And how great it is if I can be as happy and proud of those as you were! Cheers

  4. Do you use PSE for all you blogger template designs and coding? I use an old version of illustrator, but for the coding I'm on my own. I would love to upgrade someday. :)
