Boy-OH-boy it has been 
a whirlwind of a week

Crazy. Exciting. Stressful. & Humbling. best describes it.

I managed to make homemade Fudge (for the first time ever)
for a bake sale we held at school.

It turned out delicious, and was pretty easy to make.

I completed my Illustration homework that I turned in on Wednesday.

We had to choose 3 things that inspired us and design 3 looks for each.
(also try drawing men and kids)
My three inspirations were the Starbuck's logo, Lavender, 
& the markings on a deer.

We also had to design three shoes and enter them into 
the Vince Camuto Shoe Design contest
((which I posted all about, and needing everyone's help))

WELL, two of my designs made the Top 25!!
So THANK YOU everyone for your support and "likes" ♥
Now we just have to wait and see who's design they will pick.... fingers crossed!

I was so humbled to see the response that I got from Friends & Family
on Facebook, AND even from you guys!

A lot of the time (especially living so far away from home)
I feel kind of alone - just a little -
and struggled not having my core group of friends.
So to witness everyone willing to help me out in my time of need,
 I knew that even though I don't see them often they are still there for me.
You're never alone ♥

*Like I mentioned, I will be doing a giveaway in celebration
of the contest and making it that far.
Stay posted today for more details!!

Enjoy your Friday xoxo
