Thank You for A Great 2015

Can you believe I’ve been writing this blog for about 4 years? Me neither

that means I’ve posted a craft tutorial every Monday, with few exceptions (Christmas or being sick), for 4 years.

I started this blog as a way to keep my creativity flowing, but it has become soooo much more than it was intended to be. I’ve met some amazing people who are really talented who have heart-warming stories, I’ve been offered 2 jobs (partially because of this blog) and I’ve been able to enhance my artistic abilities.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her 2014

After I posted by Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him 2014, I got a request for Valentine’s Day gifts for her. So, this is for you!

(Most) women are easy to buy for. If you get chocolate, flowers, and/or dinner, you’re doing pretty well. But, there are always some ladies that hate that stuff. I hate getting flowers. Save your money… Surely there are other women out there who feel the way I do. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a few ideas for the hard-to-buy-for women in your lives. Read the whole post

The Psychology of Color: Infographic



Who doesn’t like infographics? They are visually appealing and easy to read (most of the time). So, when I found this one from Painters of Lousville, I had to share it.

This one talks about what each color represents in terms of feeling or emotion, what each color represents and how we use them in marketing (which I am particularly interested in). Think about it. How do you respond to colors? Why do you respond that way? Read the whole post

Blogging Ideas…

Surprisingly, I haven’t found any problems coming up with new content to write about on Make Something Mondays. There are always new artists to discover and new craft projects to try. But I’ve found that writing on other topics is not so simple.

So I want to know what you do when you are staring at a blank document, and think that you have nothing to say. You want to write, but what is there to write about? Read the whole post

196 Days, 196 Countries Continued…

You guys remember Javier? He started a journey across the US (from Virginia Beach to California) to promote love, tolerance, and awareness of his fellow men and women. In order to show this, he is going to take 196 days to walk across America. Why 196 days? Because there are 196 countries in the world and he is going to wear a shirt displaying a flag from one of those countries each day.



He is doing very well. Read the whole post

An Interesting Day For Instagram

I’m sure that if you have been on the internet at all today you have heard about instagram’s updated policy. If not you can read about it here or I can catch you up. One small paragraph in the article said it all.
