Last week, my blog/baby/life reached its second anniversary. With last year’s official launch of Those Things They Said as a .com, I approached the blog with a new sort of seriousness in regards to post quality. It led to many new opportunities, such as my American Apparel sponsorship (as well as a new one which I’ll be sharing with you soon!). I was also able to share with you some of my favorite thrifted finds. And in a short span of time (oops!), I acquired quite the shoe collection. Of course, I received valuable feedback and support from great passersby, regular readers, and those whom I very much consider friends (you all know who you are!).
With my newly launched blog design, I was really shooting for quality. It’s the first layout that I think feels really done. This past year at school, I had to deal with a lot of confidence issues with my art. I’ve reached a point where I’m ready to share with you all what I do, and I’m ready to draw and paint and design and photograph so much more. This layout integrates traditionally painted elements because there’s no point in separating all the things I love. That’s what this blog is here for–to join all my interests together :)
So, thank you all for contributing to my great year. And here’s to a new, even better one. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
