Nearly 5 months. That's how long it's been since I've prepared a post here on the blog. To all of you who take the time to follow me regularly, and get excited for my next posts, I'm sorry I've had such a long hiatus.

Hand Lettering Series - Part 3 - Lower Case 1 of 2

Saturday, September 22, 2018

It's been a while since I've posted here on the blog, sadly! But it's for goo reason; I've been working really hard on my art and growing that part of my career, and working on getting the rest of the videos in my Hand Lettering Series ready for you guys! In this post I will start showing you Lower Case Brush Lettering starting with the half of the alphabet that has Ascenders and Descenders. Confused? Well, watch the video to learn all about it...

Art Series #17 - "Éffluerer" Oil Painting - My Compositions

Friday, July 13, 2018

In this Art Series post I have another one of my oil painting time-lapses for you! This piece is my favourite I've completed to date and in the time-lapse of it's creation I share about how I named it and the feeling/meaning behind it. I also talk about how I create my original compositions, and also about developing my art style and how I feel about having an art style.

DIY Farmhouse "X" Bench With Breadboard Style Top

Saturday, June 30, 2018

When I set out to design this bench I wanted to build something that would obviously fit in our modern farmhouse style decor, that would fit under our picture window in our livingroom for our dog to lounge on--she loves to watch the people and animals outside--and would have a bit of storage incorporated into it. I found many other benches that inspired me, check out my 12 Farmhouse Bench Inspirations post to see those, and I took bits and pieces of those designs to come up with my own. In the end, the storage that I would have been able to implement into the design wouldn't have been worth it with the way I wanted my bench to look, so I nixed that part, and this is the bench design I came up with...

A Day In The Life Blogger & Artist - Plus A GIVEAWAY

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

I don't often do vlog style videos, but I was recently inspired by some other YouTubers to share a little more of myself on my channel. I shared a few things here and there, but have felt like perhaps there isn't a lot of place for personal stuff on my blog and youtube channel. I mean, I assume people come for the DIYs... which is probably mostly true, but for my regular subscribers, perhaps they'd like to feel more of a connection with me personally, and feel like they know me a bit better as a person, not just a DIYer. Perhaps my youtube family would grow to have more lovely people if I share more of me. It can be hard to put yourself out there... but today I'm starting out simple and inviting you to follow me along for a day in my life. If you'd like to see what I get up to in terms of my work day, keep reading... and perhaps I'll do more posts like this in the future... even if I think my life isn't exciting (is boring)...
