Life happens. Keep on creating

You know the feeling…you begin a creative project only to find life gets in the way, or something else comes up? Case in point: this year, I started life drawing lessons.

And now for some vintage inspiration. Moments and memories.

Perhaps as I am headed towards a significant birthday, I’ve recently been admiring many things of yesteryear. There’s something so fun and creative in all things retro.
