Melissa Haslam

I don’t really have a lot to say today, we’ve reached the portion of tax season where I am just really tired and a little sad.  But there is only two days left, and my brother and my mom are going to drive up on Friday for a longish weekend. I think the worst thing about growing up is realizing that you’re going to spend a great deal of you adult life doing things you don’t like doing.  I really hope that I can pull things in a more positive and fulfilling direction by this time next year.

What does this have to do with Melissa Haslam? Not really anything.  I find her work incredibly beautiful and just the tiniest bit disturbing, and I’ve been meaning to share some of her work with you guys for a while now. This afternoon seemed like a pretty good time to sit down, unwind a bit and share some of my favorite pieces.

To see more recent work check out her website here.  I hope you guys enjoy the rest of you weekend.  I am going to try to post at least once more before the end of tax season, but that depends entirely on how high my blood pressure gets between now and then.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
