3 Days Till A Sharper Focus Shop!

This was my view yesterday working on new necklaces. On May 1st I'm officially launching my Etsy shop! I'm so excited to share prints, accessories and my art with all of you. I'm also really pumped to be able to use the shop to give back to organizations that are near to my heart. Each month there will be a featured charity, or group, that 10% of all sales will be donated to. For the month of May, Living Water International will be the shop's featured organization! I first learned … [Read more...]

Goal Setting for the New Year

Instead of just jumping right into things this year I've decided to slow down and re-focus during the month of January. With a very busy Holiday season and being out of town for a week, I haven't had the time or head-space to really think about my goals for 2014. But, I received Lara Casey's Powersheets for Christmas (thank you Danielle!), and I've been working on them this past week and hope to finish before the weekend. I love them so far! They are hard work, but can't wait to see how they … [Read more...]

Art Market Awesomeness!

Last Saturday I had a wonderful time at the Elder Street Art Market!  I have gone to this market for the last few years and have always thought to myself, "I should do this."  So, this year I took the plunge and reserved my booth in October.  I think I really decided to do the market after I went to the Influence Conference in September though.  Seeing what others had created and listening to their inspiring stories at the conference helped me stop making excuses and start moving … [Read more...]

T-minus 4 Days Til the Elder Street Art Market

Preparations are going well, but I still have lots to do for the up coming Art Market! Tomorrow, and over the next few days I hope to post some previews of what I'm going to be selling at the Elder Street Art Market here in Houston. First I wanted to share the "Why" behind me doing this art market. This video pretty much sums it up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IN0W3gjnNE 20% of all the proceeds made at the Art Market will be going to Advent Conspiracy that in turn goes to Living Water … [Read more...]

Busy Good, Busy Bad

It's been a good busy these last few weeks. I'm really enjoying a steady stream of photography sessions. Such as this fun family in my latest family session. Yet, I've also had time to work on some of my art for the upcoming market. Here a few new Paper Mache animal heads in the beginning stages. I do need to make more concrete weekly and daily goals with my creating though, as the date is drawing closer. I'm really enjoying my school year and am having a great time being … [Read more...]

The Elder Street Art Market!

Yep, mark your calendars for December 7th, 2013 everyone.  I did it!  I just signed up for a booth at the Elder Street Art Market! Every year my church, Ecclesia Houston, hosts an Art Market at the beginning of December and 20% of all of vendor's profits go to Advent Conspiracy. For the last three years I have gone to this market and walked around wishing I was a part of it, thinking to myself I could totally do this and it would be fun.  I love making art, crafts, jewelry! But I let the … [Read more...]

DIY Masking Tape Paintings

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you are having a great day spending time with your friends and loved ones. This past weekend I got to spend the afternoon being artsy with my nephew. We gathered up some small canvases, masking tape and craft paint to create a fun Valentine's gift for his parents, and a piece for himself. We decided to practice first making a "C" for Corwin and an "I" for Ian. I cut the masking tape to piece together the letters and smoothed them to the … [Read more...]
