Recently I have been put in a tough position at my part time job. We are so slow that i'm not working very much this month. Overall I have around five shifts, if that. To be honest it is quite annoying and I am a little frustrated but I also anticipated this so I made sure to add it into my budget. With that being said I decided to look for a second job. Its the second time in my life that I have had to get a second job let alone work as much as I plan to. Right now, with everything going on I just don't have the money to be able to afford everything that my bf and I are planning. 

I do hope that things go well and that I can work both jobs. I know that for six months I am going to be utterly exhausted but I also just have to look towards the future. At the end of the month were going to New York and when we get back I have around three months before I go on my next trip. 2019 is going to be a busy but a very amazing year and I want to make sure I can do everything in my power to make these trips happen. 

For right now though I do ask that you guys help out and check out my artwork. Every purchase helps me out and will go towards my savings and help fund all the adventures we have planned. With that comes videos and photos that you get to see first hand


Email me at to get this piece delivered to you as quickly as possible!

While you are checking out my artwork I give you this cute picture of Spice with a fuzzy blanket. I am doing my best to take pictures every day so that you guys get something different in my posts. I hope you enjoy and this puts a smile on your face.

My part time job has been so slow that it feels like I don't have a job. It feels like i'm in a weird place where I never go to work and all I do is exercise, write, and chat with D. Of course I do more then that but those are the basic things I do right now. Its been a time to reset myself but I also have been really worried about everything since I am not always at work. That's the thing about working a seasonal part time job. There are times when you don't work for a long period of time. When you will struggle for a little bit. It's honestly very frustrating and so I am taking the time to change how I look at things and I am coming up with a game plan for this year. I want to do more YouTube videos so I am recording, editing, and making changes to the channel.

Along with the YouTube channel changes I am making changes on my artwork. Instead of rushing through them or getting frustrated with the pieces I want to make I am taking my time to try and figure out how to make them better. How to make them stand out more then ever before. There is a butterfly piece that I have been trying to finish for some time and I am only just now starting to get back into doing the touches on it. I have been frustrated in with myself because I want to make better pieces for you guys but I just haven't been able to do that these past few months. Over time you might see one or two pieces drop in price because I want to have a higher chance of them selling. 

Of course I am also taking more photos of Spice and Midnight. I'm trying to do daily if I can. Just so I can hone in on my skills and make sure that I am providing the best that I can with my talents. With all of that being said I do wish you guys have a wonderful day and here is a picture of Midnight sunbathing.

Within the next few days we will be making changes to my blog. We will be changing the following 

  • How to purchase pieces 
  • The picture at the top 

For now those are the two things that I have decided on indefinitely. I'm not sure when the changes will be worked on but I know that they will be done before I go to New York. We are changing the way we purchase pieces for the convince of not only me but also you. It will be more effective and will help out in the future when I am traveling more full time..

I do hope you guys will bear with us as we take on these changes as the site might have some ups and downs while we working on it but it does need to be done .


Thank you guys so much and as always I appreciate you

A few days ago the I'd Bay Bridge closed down. It's the one bridge around here that can get you directly from niceville to destin without much of a hassle. Of course your paying $4 each way to go down the bridge but depending on where you live, it might be worth the $4 to take the route. Honestly it is for me since my work is 10 minutes away when I take the bridge. 

Right now it is a good time to have the bridge closed since it is officially the slow season but in a few months all the tourists will be back and business will be booming again. In a sense it's not a good thing for not just the business's but also for the people who work over the bridge. They say that there is corrosion on the bridge which happened back in 2000 .due to this they closed the bridge for 12 days and after that opened one side of the bridge at a time to allow the traffic to get across. But cording to D and his father, they say that bridge might be closed indefinitely. Of course were not sure what they know. They won't tell us for a long time and I honestly doubt that we will ever know at this point. If they have to take the bridge apart then that really puts everyone in a bind and I sincerely hope that doesn't happen.

For right now it means limiting the amount of trips we take to get to destin. I sincerely hope that this gets resolved quickly and with no issues because I would really like to limit the amount of gas I have to use to get to work in the busy season. What a great way to give the new year a kick in the teeth .

These past few days I have been coming up with ideas on how to make changes for my small business. I've been thinking of what I can change on my blog, my YouTube channel and of course on my Instagram. All of these platforms help me to talk to you guys and to make a change in my life. The past year alone has changed how I see things in general. Selling art pieces has given me a chance to not only do what I love but to express myself to others in a creative way. It's not the best way to make money and a lot of the time it's stressful because I don't know what will and won't sell. But that's art of having a small art business. You just don't know what works and doesn't until you give it a go. 

This year I want to make things a little easier for everybody but I haven't figured out what I'm going to do quite yet. I have goals and ideas, it's just getting them to go together that is going to be a challenge. I want to make my YouTube bigger and better and I want to share more with my audience so I'm gonna try and come up with a schedule to do that. In terms of my blog I know that I'm gonna make some updates with the style and look. I haven't really changed much since I started writing so I think it's about that time. 

I'm excited to see what we can do to make my business grow. After all, this is what I wanna do for my career and I wouldn't have this small business if it wasn't for you guys. So thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around, for purchasing my pieces and for being so awesome. Let's make 2019 just as awesome as 2018.
