The week of celebration! And my new art space!

May 14, 2017

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I had a super good day. The boys wrote me some super sweet cards and got me candy, which they ate some of after I had properly received it as a gift. I love getting teenager gifts. Gabe woke up early to give me my card, which was a blue piece of paper folded in half with a letter inside.

I like creating light hearted, pretty art that makes me happy. I enjoy the process, and I like decorating with it when I’m done. It’s commercial art, not high-concept art. And I’m cool with that.

What I’ve Been Up To

May 4, 2017

Heeeeeey everyone! I’ve been away – obviously. Life got super busy for a while there! My yoga teacher training at CorePower Yoga took up a huge amount of time. I’m happy to report that I finished all of the teacher training classes! Now I just need to finish up taking the huge number of required yoga classes that go towards my teaching certificate. Since I have a full life with work, freelance, sewing and kids, it’s a slow process for me. Continue Reading…

Bite Beauty Lip Lab Valley Fair

Omg guys, I got to visit the Bite Beauty Lip Lab at Valley Fair this week and make a custom lipstick. I found out about this from the Bite Beauty rep who visited us at Sephora a while back. It’s a boutique where you can go make a custom Bite lipstick. Y’all know that I love makeup and I love making things, so this was high on my list of things to do. Continue Reading…

Hey! I signed up for a super cool, year long sewing project called Project #SewMyStyle. It’s being hosted by Bluebird Fabrics, and it’s a collaboration between several indie pattern companies. Basically it’s a year-long sew along to create one new garment a month, using a predetermined pattern selected to suit the season from one of the pattern companies. Continue Reading…
