Hey babes. Wazzup? Hope you all had a good week. Mine was busy, and now I’m on the verge of entering the summer slowdown.

Maybe I can finally get to some serious garden work, long bike rides, and creative endeavors of my own. Speaking of creative endeavors, I owe you all some samples of my printmaking. Next week is our last class. I can’t believe how it flew by! I am most definitely going to continue my printmaking practice, especially linocuts. I have fallen in love with linocuts.

So what else can I share with you? The annual summer family vacation has been planned. This year we’re heading up to Martha’s Vineyard in late August. Soo excited for that! I also have some writing pieces I’ve been trying to work on. With my lighter modeling schedule coming up I’ll be able to dig into those and finally complete the unfinished drafts I have saved in my laptop. And, of course, more blog posts
