WOYWW - Art & Scholarships

I don't know about you but it's been a hectic week already.  Between registering for undergrad classes, finalizing things for my art display, commission orders - I've been on the go non-stop.  No complaints here, though. I'm enjoying my own schedule and doing what I love...being creative.

Which reminds me - I was awarded a scholarship yesterday!  :)

Above are a few things I've been focused on as of late for local events and my online shop.  I've been tailoring bookmarks (which recently arrived from the printer), making large and small watercolor cards, bookplates, stickers and other fun surprises yet to be revealed.

My favorite thing so far this week?  Purchasing a single peach pearl necklace to celebrate all the good things going on.  Uh huh.

What's been your favorite thing(s) this week so far?


For more WOYWW, make sure to swing by here and check out all the creative, inspiring desks!
