the glove compartment isn't accurately named

i realized the other day that april 24th was my blog anniversary. which happens to be today. which means that i've kept up with this thing for three whole years. crazy, isn't it? who knew that i wouldn't tire of it? it's kinda crazy has this blog has kind of evolved...i originally started it as a place to write for fun, and to air my thoughts out...but then it turned into a scrapping blog, then eventually mostly a photo blog. not necessarily a bad thing.

in honor of this momentous occasion (ha), i finally changed my banner, which is inspired by this layout i did earlier today:


i am majorly in love with those paint circles by mary ann wise, which are hitting the shelves at designer digitals this weekend. it's bringing out some mojo in me - a good thing because it seems like it's been in hibernation for the last month.

anyways, i also finished up some more layouts for studio calico, so here's another peek:


i've felt behind on life since i got back monday, but i'm tackling things on my to-do list one by one, and it feels good. i'm also partaking in some spontaneous planning, and although part of me thinks i'm crazy, it's a bit exciting. we'll see how it goes.

i also cannot wait for grey's to return tonight. along with more of the office. woot.

have a good one :)
