February already


images by Emma Cassi found via Lobster & Swan

February already. Can you believe it? I fell in love with these images. Something about delicate lace, ribbon and vintage papers makes me feel romantic. I connect with delicate, feminine displays. Who wouldn't love a Valentine adorned with any of these things. So lovely and inspiring.

As for me, I'm still here. I've been absent, I know. I am going to create a new space for blogging the question is when? Lots of ideas but nothing feels right just yet. Still deciding on a name, etc. I'm particular that way but I know when it feels right I'll know it. I may simply go with my name if nothing else fits. We'll see? I did create a new header for this space though (for those of you reading in a reader). I love playing with these things. So much fun and pure pleasure.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful new year.

Oh . . . and because it sounded like fun. I've seen this at few places so I'm joining in. Sixteen random things about me. I'll post one at a time like Lobster & Swan is doing.

01. I studied pre-med for 2 1/2 years at university but then decided it wasn't for me. I still love the sciences, always have, but my heart wasn't in it. I don't have any regrets about leaving that discipline but I do wish I would have taken more Art classes. I'm an absolute believer in studying what interests you, what gets your blood pumping not what someone else thinks you should be doing.

hello collette! i have shut down my blog & website...for now. i too am in redesign mode and don't have any idea when, exactly, i will "get there"! i am probably going to have something totally brand new and 100% dedicated to my journaling pursuit. i'll keep an eye on you here so we can keep in touch. are you on facebook by any chance?

Very pretty photos of pretty possibilities. I studied fashion design for 2 years - until I finally admitted to myself that I wasn't interested in it as a profession. I took a year off (to the dismay of my mother) and then returned to an art college where I discovered my true passion: art and photography.

Although Valentine's has come and gone this year, I'm still enjoying your photos.
And it's good to know that I'm not the only one having spent some time on hibernation mode. It's spring , and it's time to rise and shine! :-)

I can't believe it is already February, either. Where did January go? (or 2009 for that matter!) ha

Looking forward to hearing about the new site.
