I'm headed of to Bali this morning. Hoping I don't die of travel fatigue since this is my first insane travel route. Central America to Los Angeles...then China, then Indonesia. I'm feeling like a human camel again but at least I'm not pulling the plastic mans cart like this guy! I'll be offline until mid March and will be back with oodles of pictures, video and artwork to share from the retreat.
I know I shouldn't go on and on about having such incredible days and lounging along the caribbean water...I just can't help it. That's just what's happening for me and it's hard to think about anything else lately.
Had a wonderful Valentines day with the whole island playing at the beach. The kind of day you try and burn onto your brain so you can always find it again...Hope you had a lovely Valentine weekend and that you get a sun drench at some point this winter! Sending you some this morning.
One of our Korean Distributors sent us these incredible books by a compony called Jetoy.
I've been smitten with this gorgeous journal-ish book called Peach Pie. They have all sorts of design themes at Jetoy and all of it is really impressive. I love when companies offer different design themes and brands. Like Miso Pretty by Blue Q.
I wish they offered high res large posters of some of these pages. Just wonderful!!!
Loads of doodles and cute little English sayings, musings and quotes. It inspires me to draw and sketch more and to play with digital backgrounds.
I'm back on the island again and feeling as if I hit the reset button and have a fresh start here. Going back to the states was truly wonderful and returning here has been even more touching after a little time off the caye. The music feels thumpier, the sand a little softer and the fry jacks a little more tasty. I'm settling in under the rain and tinkering away on projects. I feel excited about everything! I keep wanting to work on ten things at a time. But the Bali retreat is just around the corner now and so it's also time to gear up to ship off again. There is so much incredible talent and wonderful personalities attending that I am really looking forward to such an interesting bunch of women. My mom will also be joining us there which is going to be really special for both of us. My first trip to Asia and my mom's first trip abroad. Well cyber hut is closing down....xoxoxo
