I really haven’t written a post on this blog since Aug.1, 2017! I never thought I would be gone so long. I hope everyone has been well. So much has happened in my life. I moved to another city and then moved back home and I’m planning on moving again. I’ve been all over the place but in a good way. It was a roller coaster of a year. Some parts were scary, some were sad, and some of it was weird. There’s always scary times when you do something new. But most of it was really pretty good. I took so many pictures and I have a lot of videos. I’ve been looking for a place to post them and it just occurred to me that I can share them here.
Anyway, I’ve recently made a dream of mine a reality. I opened an Etsy store to sell prints of my art work. I’ve dreamed of being an artist Professionally since I was in high school but I could never really get it together and come up with a plan for how to do it. But when the Creator has a plan for your life things see, to come together no matter what opposition you faced. I finally have enough time to gather my work, prepare it, and list it for sale.
I was 18 when I started this blog. I first used it to share art inspiration and things I liked. Later it evolved into a place where I shared my own art. Going forward I plan on using this as a sort of online journal where I chronicle my experiences as a HOPEFULLY working artist.😂 Thank you SO much to all 300 of you for following.I’m going to include the link to my Etsy shop below. I’m selling prints now and plan on adding other items later. Check it out! If you like my work please share and link back to my page. I also have my instagram icon in the sidebar.
Until next time, ❤️
Hi everyone! I know I’ve been neglecting this blog but I will be posting a lot more. I’m so excited to share this with you all. This is my first crafting video. I’ve been planning on making one for the longest time, but I finally got around to it. I love the movie Moana and I wanted my notebook to reflect all the fun and adventure of the movie. It’s a VERY easy project and the design can be tweaked to suit your personal taste.
What You’ll Need
Large Cereal Box
Gloss Mod Podge
Please let me know if you decide to try it. And please like and share.
Good Morning everyone! How are you? How have you been? I really want to know. I really want to know more about my followers and people with similar interests. Yesterday I woke up and just felt like drawing something. That’s … Continue reading
I WISH that I has seen my 300th post and celebrated that, but my life’s been crazy for a while now so I paid no attention to the fact that I had reached such a milestone. I started this blog back in 2012 and it was just a place to share art, and creative things I like. I was fresh out of art school and wanted to stay current on different things that were happening in the art community. Well it’s five years later and I can officially say that I have failed at that.
Furthermore I’m left to ask myself questions. Questions like, “Why do you still do this?” “If you blog inconsistently, will people get pissed off and stop following?” And, “Do people even read blogs anymore?”
I mean blogs in the traditional sense. I have to admit, I think photo blogging is the big THING now. With apps like instagram and snapchat, people probably feel it a little more savvy and convenient to just follow along with the story of pictures on their phone, than to actually HAVE TO READ a long post about a specific topic. And yes I am guilty of it too (I just had to look up how to spell convenient). Instead of having to follow different blogs and read through paragraphs of info, a person can scroll through their phone with just a simple swipe of the finger. And it’s just EASIER! And if your life has been crazy (like mine has), looking at pictures is a good way to feel connected to the world.
SO! Where as in 2013-2015 blogging was all I heard about…..I never hear about it anymore. I have to say.
I Love It.
Is that bad? Even worse…is that hipsterish of me. I’m ashamed. I’ve been blogging for a while, and honestly, a couple of years ago, when EVERYONE I would meet was telling me, No. PUSHING me to read their blogs. I did loose interest a little bit. I mean I would post randomly, but nothing consistent. What made it worse, is that when I would read people’s blogs, most of them had guess what…mostly pictures, and very little, to no information. The info that was there, was usually general information that was being passed around in beauty circles at the time. It seemed like more people were interested in having a blog, than in having something to blog about. But more recently, I really never hear about blogging anymore. I mean…at all. And because more people seem to be abandoning the idea of traditional blogging, I feel inspired to blog again 🙂
I never intended to write more than 300 posts or to have almost 300 followers. I just wanted an outlet to share the things I love. That’s what blogging started out as. And I feel that is blogging at its best. People, writing honestly about things they are passionate about.
Going forward, I’ll keep posting about art, my life, interests and other topics that mean a lot to me. And there’s a calm feeling knowing that if others come and go, there will always be those of us who really do love writing and reading.
I drew one of my favorite princess. Disney’s Princess Tiana! She’s beautiful, smart, resourceful, and kind. And I loved how her story was full of magic, but also dealt with many of the issues of real life. This video is just a speed drawing I did of her. I also drew a chibi version of her and I will include the link to that below. And by the way. sorry for the complete inactivity in 2016. I really didn’t mean to stay away so long. I explained what I’ve been up to this past year on my non-art blog here: https://mybrightnewday.wordpress.com/
If you really want to know ;p
And thanks to everyone that still follows this blog and to my new followers. This is the first blog I ever started. I love art. And I plan on sharing a lot more on this blog in the new year.
I really hope to get better at making videos in the future. But in the mean time, I hope you enjoy these.
Hi everyone! This is my first drawing video. I hope you enjoy it.
I LOVE to do my nails and try different styles with them. But basic french style manicures always scared me a little bit because there is really no room for error. It either looks good or it doesn’t. So this past week I decided to practice doing some on my nails. I think they turned out pretty good for a first try. I’m actually about to take them off now as I was meaning to have this post up earlier. Let me know what you think in the comments.
