And I’m Back!

I took a bit of an abrupt hiatus from this blog recently, which I apologize profusely for!

However, that being said, in that time some pretty fun stuff went down. First and foremost, I went away for a couple weeks to visit the beautiful Smokey Mountains and Asheville, NC. The weather was gorgeous, the scenery was incredible, and the photos came out amazing (to come at a later date, perhaps?)

Second. . . last week I was the featured artist at Castaways’ monthly Pants Party open art bazaar. (Speaking of Castaways, check em out:

I put together a nice eclectic collection of work and enjoyed a night of music, local art and friends. What could get better?

Okay, excuses aside, expect some new posts really, really soon!
