last night - on my way home from work - i started thinking about how talented some of my friends are... and it is on that note that i introduce you to one of them. she is not only a friend, but also my ex-roomie and i think her art is beyond lovely and her clothes are decadent eye candy!!! i was just speaking with this darling friend, valerie mayen, the other night and discovered she is actually full-time devoted to her business right now and has even recently hired an assistant. i'm so proud of her! her business is called 'yellowcake' and has a store on etsy. check it out!
