Hey <<First Name>>, 


I don't know about you, but I love back-to-school season.

I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and pink erasers. Even though I graduated in 2012, something about the first week of September feels like a fresh start to me. 

For the past couple of years, I've made a conscious effort to go "back-to-school" in some small way during September. Last year, I took a quilting class which led to my love of sewing to fully blossom over the year. This month, I'm starting a comic book making class and it feels way outside my comfort zone in a really good way. 

Other classes I'm super interested in: 
- Screenprinting
- Children's book illustration (almost signed up for this one!)
- Beginner ballet (maybe next year!)

In other news, a lot of things happened last few weeks! My best friend got married! My sister is getting married tomorrow! I turned 29! 

And I made this awesome jumpsuit:

What can I say? This bitch is crafty.
