Etsy Shop Update—Calculated Shipping

Finished Art Assignment

Hey Everyone! So I finished my art assignment for my figure drawing class. I decided to do a portrait of Justin and really experiment with the paint. I really want to start watercolor painting in a way that’s fun, fresh and excites me. So far, this is working. I might be doing some floral things…

Sorry for the Neglect

Hey Everyone! Sorry I haven’t written in a couple of days. I’ve been super swamped with school work. Today I turned in my 3rd project for this semester already and today was the end of the 3rd week. There are two more projects already in progress, so it’s been really crazy here. This was my…

Painting Today—Stress-free Art

Today I was painting! If you are a psychology person, don’t read too much into this, I was just having fun! So, I needed to do a weird project for my drawing class and I thought to myself “Do I really care what the rules are?” My resounding answer: No. I’ve spent the past semester…

Witchy Wednesday–Autumn is here.

Apparently I was wrong about the date of Mabon this year, the equinox shifted thanks to some weird calendar things. So it was yesterday. We didn’t really do much. Having no garden or extra money, we really didn’t have a “harvest bounty” to celebrate. In fact, we had to go spend more money than we…
