Art Series - Post #9 - "Nanny" in Graphite

Saturday, July 26, 2014


In this installment of my Art Series posts I wanted to share with you all a graphite portrait drawing I did of my grandmother as a gift to my mother on her birthday this past April! 
I saw a picture of my grandmother’s huge family from when she was a little younger :)… I think maybe 16 or 17 years old (she just had her 74th birthday this past May), and thought how beautiful she was. I immediately knew I wanted to draw her. With my mom’s birthday coming up, I figured it would be a meaningful gift! Here she is:

Drawing a portrait of someone you know and someone you love and respect so much is difficult because you want it to be just perfect. I’m a perfectionist as it is!! He he. You just want to make sure it does look like them so you need to get certain features just right. This one is still hard for me… it really does look like her and I am quite proud of it… but there are things I’d like to fix. Maybe I’ll do another one. :)

Monthly Beauty Buys for June & Yay or Nay Video!

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Bonjour, everyone! So, today I am starting this new Series called Monthly Beauty Buys! This one is for all my peeps who love being creative when it comes to Beauty Products or, like me, love being creative in ALL aspects!! I will be doing these posts once a month (duh, he he) and I’ll be showing you some beauty items I have bought and am liking each month. I may, from time to time, like I have in this post, do a “Yay or Nay” video for that Series I have started on YouTube where I give my first impressions of a new (or new for me ) product. Hopefully you guys will like this series and, if so, I will keep doing them! :D So, let’s get started!

So, I’ve got 3 items to show you guys that I am liking… I probably bought more than that in June… but I narrowed it down to 3 for this post. :)
