where do i live?

i love the fun, modern design of ork posters.  but which one should i get?  chicago, where my heart and childhood lives... or boston, the place i've made my home for the past 5 years?

remember me mentioning the color collective?  i love playing with new color combinations.

from this...

to this.

why all the raindrops?  i made these during a time when boston was experiencing what seemed like a never ending rainstorm.  i wish it rained in blue, orange and purple.

aaand we're back!

*whew*  so much has happened in the past month!  i started a new job  :)  it's temporary but it's been great so far and lucky me, it even fits in with my future career goals.  and a couple of days into my new job, i moved!  not a huge move... just a couple of blocks but getting settled in has been incredibly time consuming.  i don't want to jinx it but i adore my new apartment.  there are windows everywhere and so lots of fresh air and sunshine!  i haven't had fresh air and sunshine in over four years.  my first apartment in boston faced a brick wall and the second apartment was a garden unit.  so now my windows are constantly open and i wake up to the sun.  i feel more alive and healthier too!  with this all this excitement, i haven't crafted anything or baked in weeks.  i'm going through withdrawal!  thankfully, there's a three day weekend coming up.  i feel blueberry muffins, some scrapbooking, and postal art coming my way.

my new succulents like the sunshine too  :)
