Free People Office Inspo + VERY BIG NEWS!

So believe it or not, I actually had this post drafted before I found out the very exciting news I am about to share. For those of you who've been following along here, you may have noticed I've been a bit cryptic about the 'uncertainties' and 'big changes' that were ahead for me in 2012. Well, after 3 months of interviews and projects, and much anticipation, I have just been offered the job of my DREAMS at the company of my DREAMS at FREE PEOPLE!!!


Starting in February I will be the display artist for the Northwest District of Free People, creating and managing displays for 10+ stores in Washington, Oregon, Nor Cal and Colorado! I cannot even put into words how absolutely elated this makes me. I've been working so hard trying to create a career and make a living, trying to stay true to both the artist and the designer in me, and to be able to bring it all together for a brand that I absolutely love and respect is a dream come true.


So, since part of my time will be spent working with the other creatives in this amazing environment at the Free People home offices in Philly, and part of my time will be working out of my own home when I'm not traveling around to Northwest, I'm scheming up a way to make my home office feel just as beautiful and inspiring...

Since I cannot seem to track down this chair, I am going to have to whip out the staple gun again and reupholster a Good Will find instead. I already have one in the basement just waiting for re-invention and I'm about to order this fabric for the job. I cannot wait to share everything that is to come and for you all to come along with me as I turn the page to my next life chapter and take on a whole new world of adventures!
