Inspiration is Everywhere by Julia Walck

The other day I was just sitting on my couch and I couldn't stop staring at my monstera plant (that I'm slowly killing but trying my best to revive). Then I thought, "I'm going to paint it". 

I grabbed a 22" x 30" piece of watercolor paper and taped it to the wall and busted my paints out. I don't think I've ever stood up painting like that before but it felt great. 

A few weeks ago something similar happened when rearranging my jewelry. The colors really caught my eye, and I suddenly had the urge to paint them in vivid tones.

Crafts, Cakes and Cocktails by Julia Walck

Yesterday, I went to a #CincoDIYmayo event thrown by P.S. I Made This at Duff's Cake Mix. I flew solo, because you know that's good to do every now and then. 

I made a cute, typographic "not" necklace and bedazzled a cake server. I also got to fill myself up on cupcakes and had a pretty nice grapefruit margarita, that I made myself at the Patron bar. 

We also each had a juicer engraved, I chose to do "JUICE THERE IT IS". So I'd say it was a pretty successful night.
