Stepping up to the task!



It may seem harder that it is, we might not feel up to doing anything. God knows I've have experienced and succumbed to my own laziness and indecision. However there's nothing like knowing you are overcoming your obstacles. We all have it in us to be everything we want to be!!! So then just BE!!
Happy Friday Everyone!! Be Happy!

Cold cereal & Tv




This was inspired by the lyrics of a band that I love called Local Natives. If you haven't heard of them I really encourage you to listen to their music. Hopefully you'll find it as pleasant as I do. Which do you like better?  I really fancy the blue one.

                              HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE.

No filter


No filter is part of a creative experiment that pretty much allows me to bring to life any single thought that comes to my mind. Growing up I was always the one with all the big ideas that never seemed to make things work, meaning I was always too afraid of failing miserably or just to lazy to even try. Walking away from that kind of behavior has been quite a journey for me. It has not been easy but it is by far the best things I've ever done for myself. Really, I'm not claming that everything that comes out of my brain is pure gold. but I sure apreciate the fact to actuallly let creativity take over my life. and you know what? It's the best feeling ever.

simple messages





These. are sisters prints. why? because one came around at the exact same time the other did. I think they look so good together but also on their own. i'm happy with how simple and straight forward they are. when you get to know me you'll see that i'm into that stuff. simple messages, right? XO- Ileana

Don't say yes say oui



it's always great to have positive quotes and words around you. Do you know the story when John Lennon first met Yoko Ono. He entered Yoko Ono's gallery in London and in the middle of and all white room there was a white ladder and from the cealing there was a magnifying glass haning from a string.  John Lennon went up the ladder, held the magnifying glass and then discovered the word YES written on the cealing. He said that the fact Yoko had written such a positive word was what made him stay that afternoon. if he had read something negative instead of the word YES as simple as it may be. he would've walked out of there.

In that spirit and just to spin thing a little. it would be fun to have this print around.
have a great weekend. XO Ileana

Challenge is Change

i started playing with this idea of change and challenge a while ago. but this actually the first time i let this idea out into the world. i like that they can be and exist in the same space at the same time.
