Hello, again! I’d semi-planned to go through a list of all the tools I’ve been using for this week’s post, but I realized with one week left to go, that list could still change. So that along with my final thoughts will be in Week 6. Today we’ll talk a Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 4

March 10, 2019 Lisa 0

We’re at Week 4 of Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” and I haven’t fallen behind yet. But with several hobbies going at once, I’m not able to do many of the extra exercises in the book and that means no rainbows. The new colorful pens I mentioned last time? Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 3

I’m still slowly working my way through Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day”, occasionally drawing the extra exercises when I have time. I’ve been through enough art courses that I don’t feel bad about skipping things, but I may revisit some of them when I’ve completed the full six weeks. Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Weeks 1 & 2

February 24, 2019 Lisa 0

As I mentioned at the start of the month, when I picked up Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” I really just wanted to copy the patterns out into my sketchbook after going through a Zendoodle book and doing the same. I’d gone through the bulk of the book as Read More

It’s been a while since I last posted about the bead animals from the old art gallery that used to live at this domain. Today I’m covering the cute little mammals and, of course, I’m featuring the pig since we are now in the Year of the Pig. That snout Read More

Hello Again & Origami Zodiac

February 3, 2019 Lisa 0

Wow… So I hadn’t quite meant to take such a giant step back from social media, the blog, and nail art. I rearranged my workroom and found I could fit in my grandfather’s old unfolding table that is so perfect for crafts and cutting out patterns and, well, I got Read More

So…a week or so ago I finally realized what the strange traffic patterns that Google Analytics kept showing me meant: people trying to reach my old art gallery were getting redirected sideways into this post. These poor visitors from Pinterest wanted to see bead animals, not nail art. And my Read More

Marie Kondo’s method of decluttering doesn’t really work for me because I have too many things that spark joy. LOL I just went through a clothing purge in March/April and yet here I’ve had to go through it again. I got rid of half my wardrobe this time and you Read More

Ever since my stepdaughter and I completed a mermaid craft kit together, I’ve been plotting to do more crafts with her since we had so much fun. Egg carton creatures seemed like a perfect project. The cost of materials is small and we eat a lot of eggs because, as Read More

You might be aware of my goal to finish off an old origami daily calendar from 2007 in 2017. I started off the year with daily origami posts to Instagram. And then I started posting my nail art more and more… Long story short, since origami was not an art Read More
