I cannot believe another year has passed so quickly. If anyone told me that 2009 was going to be the biggest year of my life, i wouldn't have believed them. I finally made it to Japan, started studying, opened Gary Pepper and quit my job to pursue a career in vintage and design, who would of thought?

I would just like to thank all of you for your overwhelming support and amazing kindness. I never knew the heights to which unbearable happiness could take you and have made a promise to myself to never work a job or do something i don't love again. I wish i knew each and every one of you, whether it be a gesture from making bids on my items, adding us on facebook or even reading this blog so i could personally thank you again & again, because it all matters. So the happiest of new years to all of you, i love you and i can only anticipate what another year will bring :)

Here is the bow i made for new years the night before. It turned out exactly how i pictured it and remarkably stayed safely attached to my head the entire night. These were quickly taken by luke before everyone arrived at our place but i will post the shots we took on his lomo once we get them developed :)
