I swear I should make a book of all my "blog lists" that I have accumulated over the years. Every day there are about 20 + things added... I know I am not alone in this - I know all you other bloggers have the same thing going on. I look forward to the day that I can be an official 100% stay at home mom/designer and just blog till my hearts content. But then again, I would probably have a blog attack and die. I better make sure my husband puts me on blog arrest then. :)

Lots of fantastic things to share today:

Oh gosh! Cute & SEXAAAAY swimwear from Marysia Swim
That hi-rise bikini with the black baubles! UH YES! 
Found via Oh Joy!

Once you get one of these suits or any other kind....
then go and listen to Patti Page sing this song:


Just came across this wallpaper company Hygge & West also found via Oh Joy!

The papers above are actually two designs from Oh Joy's collection. :)
I love wallpaper and how it adds so much character to a room + wish I had the official guts to apply some of that stuff on my own...

found this how-to video that can show me & YOU how! 


Still not done talking about Oh Joy! Oh No I'm Not!! :-[) 

If your are a freelance artist like moi.... well you might want to get your hands on this book if you haven't already....these days I tend to bloom late. :) I have gotten myself in the freelancer's pickle many a times and it is because of my own naivety of not knowing how to manage myself as a designer.  And with friends it is even harder I think. My husband and I have the "being taken advantage" talk all too often [more for me than him] 

Creative, Inc. can be purchased HERE.


Lastly...my favorite clothing/textile line Mina Perhonen - if I was to compare myself to another brand in regards to print & whimsy, it would be Mina Perhonen. I am not saying by any means I am as talented --- no no no...not saying that...just more inline with the concepts and imagination of it all...plus, mixing prints?! OH YEAH!

images found via: 8Tokyo & Design Sponge

So if you like Mina Perhonen...then most likely you will like Sally Scott - Akira Minagawa [clothing & textile designer behind Mina and Sally] offers a more affordable line.  I love these images below. It's photos like these that remind me of how fun it is to play around with a camera whether you're good or not. :)


Sally Scott's Sprint/Summer 2011 Collection
simple, humble, clean & creative = <3

But really....before I go: an inspiration thought. In all honesty...this is a little more for me than you, its been one of those 72 hr things.. : /

One of my favorite authors [Mark Twain] once said:  "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Speaking of Twain...have you read THIS yet?
