I am so excited about celebrating my
In honor of this special day, I'd like to begin with a little history of Pink Mascara.
When I began house hunting two months ago,
my immediate concern became "how am I going to decorate it?"
Yes, when I should have been worrying about costs, location, etc, I was obsessing over the design. That's an artist for ya. Interior design had always interested me, but since I wasn't a home owner, I didn't get to put my interest to use. Buying a house was a way I could finally put my love of design to work.
After searching through images on the internet and discovering ID blogs.. I decided that keeping my own blog would be the best way to catalog my ideas for my furture home. I knew it could be a fun hobby to have, what I didn't know is how fun it would be.
Keeping up with a blog was one of the best decisions I ever made. Really! Not only does it inspire my art, enhance my skills, and keeps me updated with trends - but it also is the most relaxing part of my day.
I always look forward to snuggling up in my bed at night, escaping my chaotic life, and stepping into a world of inspirational bliss.
Since I've started blogging, I have begun looking at the world from a different perspective. I notice things I had never noticed before, such as, the way a store arranges their merchandise, my mom's outdated sitting room, etc. It is fascinating! It makes life captivating. I am so observant now. I seem to find design in places I'd never looked before. It is amazing!
Blogging has inspired me to change my entire future/career. I use to want to be a fashion design, but after spending a semester at Pratt, I quickly realized it wasn't for me. I was lost and discouraged. But then I discovered the art of home design. If I had never begun Pink Mascara, it is possible that this love of mine could have remained dormant in my heart forever.
How has blogging changed your life? Is it something you look forward to? I'd love to hear.
Today, I'd also like to share with you some of my art. I love illustration, mixed media, fashion design, and charcoal portraits. I am a jack of all trades! Enjoy.
