cygnet update

 Swan shell from H&M, vintage necklace from americathebeautiful on etsy.
I love this swan blouse I stumbled upon in H&M! I can't wait to wear it.
I'm getting so excited for the fall. In my head, I've always been on a "school year calendar," so September always feels like the start of a new year to me.
Lately, the morning air and evening air has just been feeling like back to school time. It's a little premature, maybe just wishful thinking. I love the air in autumn. 
I FINALLY updated my portfolio, splitting my paintings into their official series and expanding the sketchbook and paper doll sections. Oh, and getting product ready for MICE! Something else very autumn to me: selling my stuff in a craft-fair style setting. We always helped my mom with her craft fairs every autumn and winter. It makes me so happy!
I hope you're all enjoying July!
xoxo, Amanda

Amanda Dear,
I LOVE your new blouse. It is perfect for you. Horray for updating your profile. Here's to a magical year. I don't know why I put that but I felt like it needed to be said. So there.

love love,

I do like that top...I love swans.
I always think of September as the start of the year...something to do with working in a school!
My prints and painting arrived today...I'm so pleased with them. You know how much I love your work!
Take care.

Aww, thank you, Kat! :) :)
Ivy, what kind of work do you do?! I just got a job at a school starting in September. :) I'm so glad you got the prints! Thank you for being such a big supporter of my work. <3
