Little INKPLAY Shop So Far + Happy Anniversary + Art Shop Open!

Hi かわいい + creative family!

I thought I’d pause for the cause and give a Little INKPLAY Shop So Far update ~

Guess what, it’s been one year ALREADY!

It took a moment to stop and say happy birthday because so much was going on with the recent (and somewhat sudden) loss of my dad.

But I didn’t want to miss sharing this moment (and some photo spam) with you ~

After this, be sure to check out the full art retrospective, here.

🌸 LIPS So Far

Exciting things have happened and tattoo is now a part of my FULL studio offerings ~

can you feel my happiness?!

PG County, MD legislation was approved late March and I changed my licenses immediately to say such fun and creative things!

… well isn’t that magical …

studio friends <3

🌸Let’s Celebrate!

Part of my June goals was organising and launching my art shop.

So, I decided to celebrate by making that happen the last week of LIPS’ birthday month.

And … It opens today. I’m so excited!

Shop and show your support. Plus I send free thank you goodies with every order.

And don’t be shy!

Feel free to tell me what you’d like to see more of there as I grow!

🌸1 Year, Already!

Now that you know how we’re celebrating, let’s get to some photo spam ~

creative mornings happen EVERY morning at LIPS

This has been a journey in one year – from dreaming to severing business-ships and emergency moves, I have definitely learned the tough skin I am made of.
