Friday Finds & a new adventure

Hola! If everything has gone according to plan with planes and connections, I should currently be on my last flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico!!!!! Hooray for a little R&R (and being able to schedule blog posts ahead of time!)

I'll be down in Puerto Rico with the boy until June 11, then I head back to Cali to mentally prepare for the summer to start. I'm bringing my computer with me to keep up with work and also to blog on all the sketches and watercolors I'm planning to make! Ugh...I'm so excited for this trip! The wanderlust blues were getting pretty antsy for some adventure...

Here's some little bits and pieces I saw on the web this week that caught my eye. 

  • Isn't that ring up above gorgeous?! Jaci Riley, the creator behind the fantastic Etsy shop Crave Jewelry Design, makes rings from her Instagram photos! (plus, you have a chance to win one on Julie Ann Art's blog!)
  • La Vita รจ Bella has a really interesting take on the tourists that descend upon her beloved Florence every summer...
  • Design Sponge posted a fantastic tutorial on making your own watercolors! And likely, you already have everything to make them in your kitchen already. 
  • Are you a font junkie too? A Subtle Revelry compiled a great list of gorgeous free fonts
  • DODOcase makes the coolest product: a notebook with a spot for Iphone to strap into on the cover! Perfect for sketching on the go and listening to music at the same time.
  • A couple days ago I posted a photo of my new succulent clippings. I figured out how to propagate my collection from a tutorial on Apartment Therapy
  • Matt Rebholz, my first ever printmaking professor at UT, has a Kickstarter to help him launch his third chapter in his graphic novel "The Astronomer." He's a pretty awesome dude and could use some love! 
  • Please tell me I'm not the only insane fan of Arrested Development out there. I'm not? Good! Then you will laugh so much over this collection of Arrested Development goodies on Etsy!
Have a lovely weekend! I can't wait to share some new sketches and watercolors with you all!
