This year I...

Said goodbye to my apartment and moved in with my boyfriend.  I have my very own craft room!

Opened an Etsy shop (Oh Rocky) selling buttons and more featuring my pop culture inspired illustrations...

Brought home an Albino Ball Python and named her Popcorn...

I also bought a new lens for my camera, took tons of nature photos, climbed trees, saw tons of new movies, read all of the Game of Thrones books and started a new favorite series...Outlander!  I feel like 2015 is going to be a lot more eventful than 2014.  I'm so ready :)

Mousy Cuteness

I recently saw this cute little mouse at Petco and wanted to take her home so badly after watching her do this!  I need to figure out a place to set up a little mouse home in my craft room...I'm thinking there may be pet mice in my near stinkin' cute!!!
