Year of the Dragon + Paint Party Friday

It's now officially Year of the Dragon according to the Chinese calendar. I hope you donned your [red] party dress today and had a good time! Do you know what your sign is according to this calendar? Find out here....

Anyhow, if you started the Chinese New Year right you did not try to tempt fate and abided by these age-old Chinese superstitions illustrated below:


12x12 journal, watercolor, pitt pen on bristol

All kidding aside, everyone who knows me also knows that I do love me some superstitions - so don't mind me, it's all in fun right - or is it? :)

Have an inspired week lovelies, xo
