YEAR IN REVIEW
at the studio: a Panda Head for BHLDN Vintage Lace Teepee, in progress2013. OK/OH, MAN. This year has been incredible for a million different reasons - Panda Head for BHLDN launched in March; this Summer I signed the lease on a brand new studio space; mid-year saw the start of two major new projects - my monthly DIY workshop series Topaz + Arrow (in partnership with my friend Virginia Arrisueño), and a proper website + shop for Panda Head Teepees.
...for the most part they've been GOOD ones. Not having time to say yes to every project has made me value the ones I do take on even more - and it's forced me to put a value on my time in a way that I probably should have a while ago. An increased appreciation for production value and visuals has meant a ton more work (but a way better finished product, regardless of medium). My admin/paperwork/emailing has roughly tripled (not much upside to that), but all said - professionally, I don't think I've ever been more excited about where I've been and where I'm going.
an October addition to the props closetAlways and forever, I'm beyond grateful for any amount of time you spent on Panda Head Blog in 2013. If you've been around a while you've likely noticed a shift in both content and visuals over the last few months; I'm stoked have started to veer this space away from the ins-and-outs of all my freelance jams + projects and more towards the how-to's, DIYs, and visuals of a creative and accessible lifestyle. Whether you've been here since day one or started riding this roller skate just now, YOU + ME = US, and the Panda Head platform in all its iterations would be nothing without your readership and support. Here's to whatever comes next. I think it's gonna be good.
