A little calendar I made and gifted for Christmas this year.

I’d like to introduce this new little blog.  In this space I will be sharing my adventures in illustrating and watercolor.  I’m new to the whole art scene.  About 16 months ago 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 year plus, I’ve seen my style develop and have really enjoyed this new hobby.

Now, I’m a talker, but in this space, I am going to do my best to keep things simple.  I gave up a blog years ago before my fifth little one was born.  I just couldn’t keep up.  And to be honest, I’m not going to try to keep up here.  I’m hoping to just pop in as I have new things to share, and to let the pictures do the talking as much as possible.  I’ll be posting some of the things I did early on (way back a year ago! haha) first, then sharing as I go.
