So where's home? A film about third culture kid identity.

I've talked a lot about how my childhood has been a constant source of inspiration in my art work. I was exposed to many different cultures growing up and lived abroad from 3rd grade through 8th grade.  I thought this video was an interesting take on young people growing up in similar circumstances, something that is more and more common these days.

New print!

We've been having a lot of fun arranging our new apartment. We finally started putting art on the walls which makes such a huge difference! I try to mix it up and not just have my own art on the walls which would be boring (for me) so we're incorporating a lot of artwork from our friends and local artists. I just bought a new print from Diana Sudyka, one of my faves. Her work is so whimsical and fun and I like how inspired she is by the natural world. I know birds (especially owls) are everywhere but I couldn't resist this guy:

Mail time!

After spending most of my day dealing with Comcast, this was a nice surprise. I absolutely love getting things in the mail- so this was a special treat all the way from South Africa!  My new pencil case and pillow from Skinny LaMinx:

Now that we're moving I'm officially obsessed with looking at furniture, home decor, interior design blogs, etc. I'm so excited to have new space to arrange!

Skinny laMinx has been one of my favorite textile artists for awhile but I've never bought anything from her shop. She is based in Cape Town, South Africa and I love how modern and organic her patterns are. Also, she has a few designs that remind me of my time in Mozambique as a child like this:

I just noticed she added some pencil cases to her shop as well- hooray! Here are a couple more photos:
