Spanish Street Art

I just spent an incredible week in Spain and left feeling very inspired. From the moment I stepped into the Madrid airport I knew that it was going to be a special trip. The immense attention paid to public ascetic details was evident from every street corner. Here are some of my favorite street images, there will be more to come :) Remember, keep your eyes peeled because you don't want to MIS it!

Love is in the Air!

Every year as Valentines Day approaches I get the urge to make cards and fun gifts for my valentines. This year I decided to give my old, broken, neglected crayons a new life. I peeled their wrappers off, melted them in the microwave in ceramic ramekins and poured the melted crayons into plastic heart and penguin shaped ice cube trays. After 30 mins in the freezer they were transformed into cool new crayons. Can't wait to share these with friends and family this Valentines Day :) Have a lovely one!
