OOPS!

I didn’t forget really… I just haven’t had the time to update! Between the multiple social media platforms, my 3 etsy shops, my poshmark sales, all of the creating, and running a household… I’m BUSY! 2016 has been a crazy year. It has been the first full year since quitting my job. If you want to see what I have been up to, head over to any one of my etsy shops and see all that I’ve created!

2017 will hopefully be even busier. I plan on taking my leather earring business to the next level. On top of that, I hope to get involved in quite a few more craft shows, AND #365daysofcreativity, which means I will not only be conducting business daily but also creating.

I would love for you to stick with me through all that! I will try and keep the blog updated more frequently 🙂

Wishing you a happy 2017!

No Personality

Originally, this post started out with me writing about friendships, and how most of them fail due to actions of both parties, although most people like to blame it on the other person. I’m a firm believer in accepting the fact that I am human, far from perfect, constantly making mistakes. I am awesome and weird. I like to think I’m unique, or at least as unique as one can be nowadays. I am one of a kind.

All The Emotions

Yesterday’s Arts Walk was intense, to say the least. I knew it was going to be a lot of work, but I had no idea of the events that would unfold. The last few have been rained out, and I was hoping that wouldn’t happen again, because I had been planning this for so long. Well, instead it was 95 degrees and clear, with the sun beating down on us, and no shade whatsoever in the Artist’s Lot.

Life Happens

I’m back! The last few weeks have been a little overwhelming, what with the preparing for my Arts Walk, the cancelling of my Arts Walk, the mental breakdown that came from said cancellation, and then picking myself back up from feeling pretty lousy about the whole thing. I also was without a phone for almost a whole week which was extremely frustrating, due to the necessity of apps like Instagram and Snapchat for my art, as well as Poshmark for selling my clothes. But this week I have a temporary phone, and a little room to breathe.

Buy My Art! (Or at least someones)

It has been a truly busy couple of weeks! There have been quite a few times where I wanted to jump on here and post something, but then I would think about something else that needed to get done, and off I would go!

This week I’ve got the Riverside Arts Walk, on Thursday night, and I’m almost fully prepared! Yay! I have done so much making in the past week or so, in order to add a little heft to the collection I’m taking with me. I also decided not to bring any canvas paintings, as this is more of a craft fair. However, I did decided to mat some of my paintings on paper, and seal them in cellophane bags. They’re so much less bulky and won’t take away from all of the signs and jewelry I’m taking, but they will however show what I am capable of as an artist.

Weighing in on Weight

A few weeks ago I began the journey to a healthier me. As a kid and a teenager, I always felt self conscious about the fact that I was bigger than a lot of other kids my age. I wasn’t necessarily fat, I was just bigger and taller. As I got older, I was pretty happy with my size, even though I was still bigger than my best friend, who was 6 inches shorter than me and a size 4/5. She was very athletic, always into sports and running, and I was not.

Physical education was the class I dreaded most in junior high, because of my asthma. After a few small asthma attacks, I ended up getting a doctor’s note to excuse me from running the mile, but I still hated having to play any sports in class, because I am so uncoordinated. Eventually, I was excused from P.E. altogether, and would sit in the library doing reports for my teacher.
