My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

Have an amazing weekend.

The sunshine is supposed to be pouring in this weekend and continue onto next week.  I can smell the summer weather.  :) This weekend I have to spend some much needed time in my art studio and the hubs I think is trying to convince me to go to the movies. What are you up to this weekend?

A Lock for Love

A couple of years ago the hubs and I went to Paris. Paris is truly one of the most magical places I have ever been... between the delicious lattes, fluffy croissants, and spectacular art.. it's a place you can get lost in. We were meeting some of my hubs business associates near the Louvre (home of the Mona Lisa) and we were set to meet on a pedestrian bridge.
There were a lot of people picnicing on the bridge and sipping wine.. or drinking champagne.. only in Paris, right? I noticed the bridge was jammed packed full of locks. I asked, "Why are there all these locks here?" I was told that if you are in love you place a lock on the bridge your love will never be broken. :) The hubs and I were not able to find a lock but when one of our good friends recently got married and we heard they were honey mooning in Paris. We knew that we had to get them a lock.
 Here is the lock we sent with them to Paris. :)
Little puggers double checked to make sure it was ready to be shipped.
And the lock's new home in Paris.

Make It Count!

Have you seen this video? It's a video about a guy from NYC who got money from Nike to make film about the idea to "Make it Count". They did something a little different :).
A little inspiration for your day.. It reminds me why it's so important to get out there and take chances and especially see the world. Since I am from a little city myself- this reminds me how big the world really is and how much I still have yet to see.  Have you been to to any places in video?

In the News

Hello! I'm back and I have sooo many fun things planned for this blog like lots of new art, DIY projects, and lots of surprises.   I can't wait to share everything with you! I also can't wait to catch up with some of my old friends and meet some new friends :).
I have something to tell you and I wasn't sure exactly how to share the news because once you put it out there.. it's out there! So putting yourself out there can be a little hard sometimes... actually quite hard sometimes.  I am going to be a mommy! and I am so excited.  Yes, I have a bun in the oven and it's an amazing adventure I am currently on because pregnancy has .. so far been quite a journey... lots of highs and lows, a lot of self exploration like I have never experienced before.  The hubs and the pugs are so excited to have a new edition to the family.  The pugs for some reason love to sniff my belly.  I think it might be there way of talking to her and telling her they can't wait to terrorize... I mean meet her.  I am already convinced they think she is one of them.
