i love your blog: 10 random things...

alright, so i was tagged with an {I your blog} award by my adorable friend simmichiko. check out her blog on all things indulgent here. so, being tagged means i have to list ten random facts about myself. since this blog is about my inspirations, these are things that make me smile and help me function...

1. sketchbooks/stacks of paper...
i am obsessed with stacks of paper: photos, magazines, notebooks, postcards, and especially sketchbooks. i tend to have 2 or 3 sketchbooks started at a time, but i never fill them to the last page.
2. postal sketches...
so sketchbooks, brings me to my art project, Postal Sketches. this project is my baby and i'm so excited about the artists helping me with it. this project pushes me to grow as an artist. originally the idea a way to keep in touch with some CSULB art classmates, and so i'd get a package in the mail once in a while, haha.3. snail mail...
everyone loves getting mail, right? real mail. Postal Sketches was a strategic way to get myself some mail, in addition to that i do exchange snail mail with my best friend. my new year's resolution tends to be to mail more cards.
4. art supplies...
i tend to buy too many art supplies. also, i am very particular about their care. its actually hurts to see someone mistreat my pens, brushes, and marker tips.
5. hazelnut latte...
like so many people out there, i run on caffeine. hazelnut lattes and almond milk teas are my weakness. what morning with a warm cup of coffee and a full blog roll to read isn't great? (yes, i love coffee so much, i look for it in china.)
6. blogs...
obviously, i love blogging, and i attribute it to my fabulous photographer friend, adrienne gunde. her excitement for blogging and sharing all the little things that make life wonderful is infectious.
7. art show openings...
at galleries, we find the artist, their new art, and people with similar fascinations. i find out about all these art show openings through blogs and my best friend. its always good to have people around you to fuel the creativity.
8. peoples...
i love making art and sitting in front of the computer or canvas for hours, but i need go out. i need to see people and be inspired by my family, friends and boyfriend.
9. baking...
i show my love to all those wonderful people by feeding them with my baking. i am not the best baker, but i try, and if that fails, i buy the pre-made dough.10. clients...
yes, really. when i'm hired as a freelance graphic designer, i need to know the client's vision. they don't always know they have a vision but they do, and when i get it out of them, it's pretty motivating.

i now, in turn award {I your blog} tagging to:
