A little about yours truly.

So, I decided to make a little post about myself.. Just a few things I felt I should share with my followers!

I'm Kala Noel. Born on September 23rd 1988.
I enjoy painting. I did a series of apple paintings for my friend Adam and his band. I have a great liking of apples and so does my friend Adam which is why their album is named "Gallery of Apples" and that is what brought on this whole idea of basically, a gallery of apples.

This first one was an original idea from one of the band members at the time. It was a digital design on the computer and I made it into a painting.

I collect many small animal figurines, primarily owls and place them all throughout my room. I'm completely inspired by nature and antiques. I think the two of them together make for a lovely little setup!

I have a terribly small room but I love it. Within the past year or so I've completely made it over. I still have a ways to go to make it a finished project, but, I'm enjoying the outcome so far.

pardon the random spot lights and lack of molding. I'm working on it! I promise. (:

I have a complete obsession with jewelry. I wear as much as I can before it gets the point of gaudy. I have so many rings and necklaces. I wear rings on practically every finger.

I am quite a random mix of nationalities! My mother is Swedish, Mexican and my father is a mix of Scottish, Swedish and Native American. Many people laugh at me when I tell them I'm quarter Mexican because I'm one of the most pale girls you'll ever meet with freckled skin and red hair in the sun.

My favorite food is sushi. I've always had this fascination with Asians. Everr since I was a little girl my favorite food was Asian, I wanted to adopt an Asian baby, my first best friend was an Asian. Everything! My friends always joke around with me and say that I'm either an Asian or an owl.. Personally, I'd love to be both! (:

And one last thing.. I live in Oregon. I moved here with my family about 9 years ago from Orange County and will never go back! (To live at least) I adore it here. It's so beautiful. It has so much to offer. I plan on eventually moving up to Portland and living a wonderful life breathing fresh air and being surrounded by beautiful people and my best friends.

To anyone who read all of that, I'm deeply sorry it was so long! Now, tell me a little about yourself! Post a blog about yourself and link it to me. Let's get this show on the road!

xo Kala Noel.


  1. I had no idea how creative you are! I really bow my hat to you, lady. Sooo lovely!

  2. I love how you've styled your room. It's very inspiring. I kind of ignore my room as I'm a student and I plan to move away anyway but it must be so nice to come home to a space that feels completely your own. :)

  3. Oh wow you're so gorgeous! I looked up something on etsy then saw your page (great stuff btw) and was like wowing at how gorgeous you look! then, one thing led to another i followed you on twitter and found your blog too. i miss and deeply love oregon. those apples you made are simply amazing.

    Casselle - Thank you so much! I'm so glad you're a follower! I always feel so silly when I twitter.. I forget to do it throughout the day so I always try and fit far too many things in at once (:. Where in Oregon did you live? I love it here!
