Lilie Green: this is your brain on cake

This winter I enrolled myself in a course on blogging, because I figured that after more or less nine years of posting haphazardly, without rhyme nor reason, a little more structure couldn't hurt. This week's homework: break out the scissors and get collage-ing. An inspiration/mood board that captures the feelings, ideas, colors, and me-ness I want Lilie Green: The Blog to represent.

So this is what the inside of my brain looks like. Japanese-y, tooth-achingly frou frou, PINK, and alarmingly preoccupied with cake.

Some details:
This illustration reminds me of my favorite blogging voice, with her love of books about kissing

I've been carrying around this comic strip for years; it's just perfect, you know?

Random but true: I LOVE the thumbing-your-nose gesture. It is cute and bad-ass and universal in meaning. (Julia Stiles does it with aplomb in the choreography for this dance.)

And for extra credit: a mini, portable board in my daily planner.

I love these mood boards- they look SO happy! And I loved what you wrote here- I feel that way too- about posting so randomly for so long & now wanting to do something about it all.
I love your blog by the way- its beautifully designed

It's just great! Love it to pieces and the cartoon is just mad! What's that small bottle you have there?

Lilie said...

Thanks ladies! I can't wait to see your boards too -- isn't this fun? :)

Milk Woman (love that name!), the bottle is the Peach scent from Demeter fragrances.
