Welcome! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m a 40 something Jesus follower, wife to a very gracious husband, and homeschooling mom to 6 littles, though some of those “littles” are in high school! I try to add creativity to life through illustrating, decorating and party planning and in this space I love to share my adventures.
I’m relatively new to the whole art scene. In August 2017, I stumbled onto Shayda Campbell’s youtube channel and binge watched everything she had posted to that point while I supervised nap time. A couple weeks later, when I had finished them all, I decided I should give it a try. I made my way back through her videos, this time with pencil and paint brush in hand. I was using my kids’ paints and card stock, but it was enough for a beginner like me.
It was super fun, then, when my sweet husband gifted me with adult supplies for my birthday a few weeks later, and I haven’t looked back since. Over the past couple years, I’ve seen my style develop and stretched into digital illustrating and product creation. In 2022, I opened my Etsy shop and continue to experiment with new products all the time!
On the blog, you’ll also find seasonal decor and party and event planning, my two other hobbies, and the occasional “other” creative exploits. I hope you’ll spend some time looking around and say hello! You can also find me on Pinterest where I pin all sorts of creative inspiration! (You can also find my more personal home pins over here.
In the sidebar I said that, “In this space I get to share what I do in my spare time… when there is some.” That is so true.
P.S. I also occasionally post over at our family blog at Claystone Family Farm. Come on over and say hi!
