so much to share!

It's been a little over a month since I last blogged, I have been super busy with new exciting things, such as a new job! and a new love for painting.

I now work at Made Rite tattoos in Old port, along with one of the nicest people I have ever met, John. The shop is so different from what I got used to working in KC. We work 11-7, 5 days a week, and it's a super laid back, all custom tattoo shop. I love it!
I've been so inspired, and I feel like I fell in love with tattooing all over again, so I've been painting lots. So fun!



So that's the flyer I painted for the shop, so If you're ever in the area, come see me :)
I finally finished the flash I drew up awhile back, so I'm super happy about that!











They are all watercolor. I also started a new painting today, I'm going to Philly for the weekend to get tattooed, to go shopping, and to hangout, so I will have to finish it up on Monday :)



I carved pumpkins with our amazing landlords last Friday, I had this great plan for a cute ghost, but got so carried away and carved the actual ghost, when my plan was to carve a square around it. Ugh. Oh well. It was a great evening with lots of pumpkin guts, and laughter :)





I spent the weekend knitting my butt off. Between baby shower gifts and birthday presents I knitted a hat, socks, mittens, and a scarf. But I got it all done, and I still had Sunday to relax and catch up on the L word.











and of course Cupcake had to give the hat a test run.



I hope you are all staying warm <3

xoxo

Your flash is so beautiful. My husband get's a lot of sailor jerry flash, and this is the first retro looking flash I've seen that is so ladylike at the same time. I adore it. We're moving up to RI next summer...I think I'm going to vote for a roadtrip :)

hi silje, thanks for sharing, i love the tattoo stuff, especially the "housewive" series! the colors are amazing too. could you please tell me, how this style of tattoos is called? i think it's kind of hard to describe to others.

congrats on your new job!
