I'll cut straight to the chase... Here's a rundown of where I've been:
Bought a new house.
Built a portfolio.
Made (still under construction) a new website/blog.
I'm (hopefully) graduating with an Associates degree in Graphic Design at the end of the Fall semester this year and I REALLY hope that I'll be able to find a job starting out in the industry that I love.
I may update this blog every once in a while but I think my focus will be on my new website and blog... www.mollieneff.blogspot.com
So check me out there... I would still love to hear from everyone!
:) See ya there!

This will be, by far, the most colorful blog post I've made in a long time and I'm so pumped! I've finally had time to sit down and relax and do nothing but catch up on all of my shows and watch movies on ch131.com... All while painting, drawing, making mini books, and to-do lists. :) Which makes me sooo happy!
My to do list right now consists of:
- STILL buying this car (very very soon now!)
-Attempting to find cute Christmas presents for my friends/family
-LAUNDRY! (I am blessed to have a lot of clothes but geeze. I feel like none of them are ever clean. and hmmm, now that I think about it, I DO need some new jeans.)
-Buy new pair of jeans.
-Take new, cute, artsy-looking pictures of everything and everyone I know and everything I do. I need SOMETHING to fun and interesting to scrapbook with!
-Make a christmas list (one real one and one fantasy christmas list)
-Share my little snowmen ornament pictures on my next blog post
-Find a new hairstyle and get it cut and colored :)
Speaking of to do lists... I made some doodle-y 'to do books'! I'm hoping to put them up in the Etsy shop soon! I just need to get some better pictures first. I'll let you see them anyway of course :) If you are interested in buying or ordering a custom to do book, just email me and let me knoooow!
I've been painting anything I can get my hands on lately and I'm beginning to looove it... Look look! I made this stuff to sell in The Jelly Bean Joint, but it turned out super cute so now my mind is torn. hehe. I can always make myself another one if anyone seems interested in this stuff!

And in honor of the purse party I'm going to tonight, I've been checking out some purse eye candy... Nothing I could ever afford of course, which is why I'm going to a designer knock off purse party tonight, but eye candy none the less...
I also love cupcakes right now... Not so much eating them, but decorating them. (I know, it's my halloween cupcakes, but gimme a break, I got lost for a little while...)I'd like to make some like these:
("Three Musicians" by Pablo Picasso- Cubism)
We'll see how that works out, but the pictures and examples of the different art movements are one of the only things that keeps me awake during this class so why not use them to my advantage? :) School is going very well by the way. This is my first semester back after a well needed, looooong break and I'm glad that I finally found something that I'm excited to go to school for. Graphic Design is so appealing to me and Mac computers and Adobe Illustrator are my two new best friends. I love it. I'm about to finish my first semester at Gateway and I am so pumped that I feel like I'm graduating already. Most of you don't know me personally, so let me just tell you that this is a HUGE accomplishment for me. :) I feel like my life is actually going somewhere now!
yay for me! :) Later tater...

I'm suprised at myself by how quickly I've posted again!
Let me get this off of my chest first... If you are ever in a creative slump, don't rush things along to try to get out of it! I have been in this so called 'slump' for such a long time but coming out of it has been such an awesome ride! I know it sounds nerdy but surfing the web is one of my favorite things to do. And I've been so inspired lately from things that I've seen around the internet that the inspiration is slowly leaking back into other parts of my life... It feels amazing! I haven't jumped into any new and exciting projects yet but that is mostly because I just don't have the time right now. Just wait until I get my hands on some time, a sharpie, and a few pieces of paper! :)
So anyway... Guess what?? If everything goes the way I need it to, I will be crusin' along, singin' songs from my ipod, and lookin' hot in this brand new little Mazda baby:
oh yea. :)
I have been without my own car for over two years now. I am completely ecstatic. (spelling? ahhh... oh well.) I'm almost positive I will put at least 20,000 miles on it within the first month because I won't want to get out.
Be back soon my loves. xoxo

It's been since JUNE since I've blogged.
You know how people always say that "time flies"... ? Well that statement has never been more true for me than in the past couple of months. It feels like JUST yesterday that I was swimming in the sun and going to summer concerts and enjoying sunlight until 9:30 pm.
What I AM looking forward to however is:
*getting back into the creative state of mind
*making time for new/old hobbies
*coming up with fun/brand new things to put in the etsy
*letting go of all inhibitions that are holding me back from blogging again (did I use that big word correctly?)
*blogging about everyday things and not worrying about if people will enjoy the topics or not
*getting my camera back and taking
*buying cute christmas gifts like this for my family and friends
*finding more and more and more amazing blogs/websites like Celine Navarro's
Speaking of amazing blogs and websites, here are a few that I've come across lately (I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to surfing the web. I jump from blog to blog so fast and excitedly that I forget how I got there and what the website was...)
*These prompts are awesome (especially #14)
*This makes me excited to be in school for graphic design right now ... logodesignlove.com
*This is for when I get back to the creative state of mind
*Some pretty cool eye candy here
Well. That's all for now, but I hope with all my heart that I will have enough motivation and inspiration to come back and blog again in the very near future.
p.s. encouraging comments always help in the blogging venture. So if anyone is out there... get to it... :) tankie. out. :)

heyyyyyyyyy there... I've been tagged! eeek! Here goes nothin...
*What's the last thing you bought?
Besides the cute little paper umbrellas I bought for the baby shower on Sunday... My most recent purchase was a few t shirts for Eric and I from ebay. Funny t shirts. Those are Erics favorite. :) OH! and at the same time I bought these adorable art prints from vol25.*What are you listening to right now?
This is actually the reason that I started this little survey right now... because I wanted to wait until I was listening to something totally rad. I am currently hearing the sounds of:
Fo real... Check him out...
*If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?to see Eric.
*What is your favorite quote (for right now)?
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all
your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your
consciousness expands in everydirection, and you find yourself in a new, great,
and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you
discover yourself to be a greater person by far than youever dreamed yourself to
be.”~ Patanjali – the author of Yoga Sutra
*What is your dream job?
Honestly, I just want to do something that I love doing. Whether it's designing my own scrapbook supplies or being the president of the United States. I just wish I could fall into something that makes me happy every day. I'll let ya know how that goes... lol*What's your worst habit?
Biting my fingernails... ekkkkg. And procrastinating.
*Do you admire anyone's style?
I admire this gal... both creative style and attire. Her personality shines thru regardless of the mood she's in and I think it's something I can really connect to sometimes. Shout out Amy!
That's all for now... The inspiration has hit... Gotta act on it before it fades away... :)
