geometric art


I never could think of a title for this piece (atleast not yet), but when I started it, all I knew was that I wanted a red background.

DIY wedding anniversary journals


Weddings are a perfect excuse to practice some modern calligraphy (really, who needs an excuse anyway though). I did this custom order for a friend and her fiancé, who are getting married later this month. The idea was simple- have booklets at each table in which guests can leave messages for the new couple (the year number coincides with the table number). Each year, they will have a little booklet full of message from loved ones to read on their anniversary. I thought this idea was so cute, I wish I had come across it for my and H's wedding!

"unapologetic"


Ever since getting back into painting at the end of last year (more posts to come on that later), my itch to paint more and more has taken on a life of it's own. That combined with working a month of night shifts recently has meant painting all night on my nights off after H goes to bed. Having a huge chunk of hours to just paint is a refreshing change of pace, even if it comes with sometimes deafening solitude since everyone else is asleep. I took advantage of the extra hours when I can't leave the house since nothing is open, and worked on this project for one of my co-residents and her sister. I've never done a piece specifically for someone, so this was an exciting first.

DIY clay macaron photo holder


These DIY clay macaron photo holders are a fun way to display photos (or in the above case, postcards) that add a pop of color to your display. Although fair warning- it may lead to you going out to get actual macarons.
