Its August.....and I am ashamed to even call myself a blogger...like who goes 8 months without posting? This girl right here. What is up with that? welllllll.....long story short.....Been a busy year. And My heart just wasn't into blogging like I used to. I used to use my blog as my creative outlet and I loved it. But then I got too distracted by other social media and just caught up. I took a break from that to recenter again like most artists do.
So, Ill try to give ya a somewhat update to what I have been up to.
I colored my hair red at the beginning of the year to break up the boring-ness I had reverted back to.
I took a trip to Baltimore with some friends from my previous life in the army and had an absolute blast.
My art space got a beautiful makeover thanks to a very organized OCD friend of mine who took a look at my workspace and said "How do you get any work done?" Which I happily replied with shrugged shoulders...."I am an artist" As you can see I lost this battle.
Then, got tired of the red, and went to turquoise!
And surprisingly kept this for several months!
I became a living statue for an event-which this was really fun to do!
(I'm the one in gold!)
In March, I took a vacay to Florida to visit my family and also be a bridesmaid in my dads wedding! I had so much fun and it felt great to see my family.
And your eyes did not deceive you...I am wearing cowboy boots! (The only time you will see that) hahaha
On my last day in Florida, we found an awesome drafting desk! I hauled it back with me too along with a new plant!
I love my artspace now. I can actually get work done and everything is organized.
Since January, I have continued on my healthy lifestyle change. Cut junk food (for the most part) and soda, started drinking more water and taking my It Works Supplements and running. So far since November...I have lost 30 pounds.
I am still pushing myself so that I can have a body I have never had before. And I gotta say, it feels amazing. I have gotten rid of so many clothes and things that I have accumulated over the years.
I have still been working on Hair, my wine glasses, my itworks business, and face painting and tattoo designs- you know the whole self employed thing that I do. hahaha
Here is some of the things I have done over the past few months.
I sold my glasses at the Chesapeake Jubilee and took home a cool Ribbon for Best Booth!
There has been so much art I have been pumping out....This is just a small glimpse of what I have been doing. I have to say out of all the years I have been self employed, this year has been the most productive.
Once Summer started, I have been busy as a facepainter down at the oceanfront with Beachstreet.
I have really been improving my techniques and looking to take this more full time at festivals.
Changed my hair to Magenta/Purple/blue
Then Purple. haha
And that, my friends, in a nutshell is what I have been up to the past 8 months.
My 32nd birthday is next month, and I am starting my journey learning to tattoo as soon as tourist season is over. I am excited to start this as I have wanted this for years.
I am going to be redoing this website soon...slowly and surely and it will still be a blog, but it will not be the main part of my website. So, be warned if you're an avid reader...changes are coming!
As always, thanks for stopping by and see ya in the next post!
