postcards for prettygreenbullet } thethirdexhibition

I have officially started work on my third PrettyGreenBullet exhibition. And a fixture in both previous PGB exhibitions were my postcards. I can’t imagine this one without. I’ve missed doing these.

when your notebook falls apart, you get a surprise like this

I love loose-leaf paper. My triplicate book accidentally ripped down the middle and I took advantage of that little hiccup by tearing the rest of it apart. The drawn-on pages anyway.

straight from the phone } away from home

I’m stuck. I’m away from my computer and won’t be home anytime soon. So what’s a girl who hasn’t updated her blog yet to do? Try doing it through her phone, that’s what. And it works quite well for me to update from my phone, seeing that I am a newly self-diagnosed Instagrammaholic. Tonight, I […]
