: Aloha Friday, have a good weekend! :


This weekend I am expecting my 31st birthday on May 9, which also happens to be Mother's Day. So I'd like to wish our moms a wonderful Mother's Day! I don't have any plans for my b-day and as a matter of fact I'll be at work. It's blackout week in retail due to the Japanese holiday, Golden  week. It seems that the older I get, I don't expect too much for my birthday. I'd just like some peace and quiet, a soy caramel macchiato, a few of my favorite magazines, and a clean house. And if that could be gift wrapped I'll take it!

Oh, and just my luck! Anthropologie and J.Crew just arrived in my mailbox. Such beautiful clothes and photography!

Here's a drawing that I cut out and dressed up in cut outs from magazines. She's part of my little cut out paper dolls collage-thingy that I'm working on. 

Happy Aloha Friday and have a great weekend!

So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
