What inspires you?

Color and style.


What is your goal for 2014?  And are you on the right track?

To begin working my day job half time and my vinyl designs half time. Yes there are lots of changes coming in the next few months :)

    1. Thank You! That picture is of my daughter's car. She was driving to North Carolina (21 hours) to do her internship. I want her to remember that I was thinking of her and to be safe. I think it helped with homesickness too :)
