My New Obsession: Laminating

Around Here: May 2021

Hello, friends! Here is a little bit about life around here right now:

What are you working on?

I'm almost finished with the online Sketchbook class that I mentioned last month. 

Sketchbook-wm
Hopefully I'll finish filming the last few videos this week or next and then open registration mid-June.  Yay!

What are you loving?

The Summer weather, of course!

Momsporch-wm
Porch2-wm
This is my Mom's porch.  Unfortunately, someone drove their car into her house (thus all the plywood), but it doesn't stop us from hanging out outside!  (It happened more than a year ago, but we are hopeful that it will get fixed later this Summer.)

How is the baby?

He's 18-months-old and makes me happy every single day.  I feel extremely lucky to be his Mom.

Climbing-wm
His cousin, who is just 8-weeks older than he is, is coming for a visit in a few weeks and we're all verrrrry excited about it!  Because of the pandemic, he's never played with another toddler.  I'm super excited/nervous to see what happens.  Eeek!

Current art crush?

I really love the pottery of Jane Ormes.  I keep stalking her online shop hoping to pick up a piece (they're always sold out).  Take a peek at her work:

She does other kinds of art as well, but I personally loooooove her whimsical folk-style pottery.

So, there you have it!  That's the scoop on life around here at the moment.  If you're a Monthly Member, May's personal vlog and studio vlog are both in online classroom! 

What's the difference between a personal vlog and a studio vlog? 

  • Personal vlogs have a lot of daily life stuff (lots of baby) and a bit of random art content.  They're pretty much like the old weekly vlogs you can still see on my YouTube channel. All Members have access to personal vlogs.  
  • Studio vlogs are art focused on a single art project or art-related topic.  Past studio vlogs include: behind-the-scenes of putting together an online class, a studio tour, the process of making my giant tree mural, etc.  Maker Members & Super Learner Members have access to the studio vlogs.

Thanks for stopping by!
