So I packed all my supplies (well not all of them) and headed up to my parents cabin for memorial week. Surprise, surprise there was still snow on the ground so my fantasy idea of plein air painting while on vacay was squashed. Needless to say it has warmed up quite a bit this week. We are now on our 5th day here and I am finally feeling the itch to get busy. Since I had 5 days to chat, blog, research etsy and painting all together, I have learned loads of information. I discovered ACEO, don't ask me what it means...but stands for miniature paintings. So the light bulb went off and I finally know what I am going to work on in these cramped quarters. We will see how it turns out.
I am a jack of all trades, but I feel as if I am a master to none. Always trying new things and once I start getting too familiar with one medium, I seem to change it up. At least that is my motto. I pick up hobbies like a dog picks up ticks. It is a sickness. I am a mother to three beautiful babies. My oldest is 6 and my youngest is 18 months. Yikes! People ask how I find the time, but this truly is my sanctuary. I am blessed to be able to stay home with my kiddies and work out my passion for creativity. I also have a great partner in my husband, Jed. He is always willing to help me out in my crazy antics. I am bona fide (love Oh Brother Where Art Thou). I graduated with a degree in fine arts. In my prior life, I worked as a graphic designer and owned a party rental business. I feel like I every year I hit the ground running. I guess that is how I like it.
I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful children a 3 year old and a 1 year old. It is a good thing they are so cute because otherwise I am not sure we would make it out of the toddler years. My husband is simply amazing and puts up with all my crazy ventures.
