Studio Sprucing & a Vlog!

Oh hellooo friends! Happy Monday!

 I woke up on Friday and walked into my studio, prepared to do some painting and was immediately depressed. It was a WRECK.

So, I had to do some sprucing. Which resulted not only cleaning out all the trash, piles of mail and random junk, but also adding a few fun pops of happiness.

(I am kind of bummed my pictures are kind of blurry because it was rainy out and the light wasn't good. So that's a little disclaimer for you... ha.)

I lined up a few of my favorite business cards on my bulletin board. One from MadebyHank, one from my friend (and Creative Estates roomie!) Moriah from Josiah's Nest and one of my own. I need more fun business cards so I think that means I *need* to do some more handmade goodie shopping. :)


I printed out this free printable made by Kim from Oh Sweet Joy and matted it with bright yellow cardstock. And I love that calendar from Letter C Design on Etsy. 


I made those paper flowers out of tissue paper and love how they add even more color to my studio. (As if I reeeally need more color with all my happy paintings in there... but I do. I always need more color.) 






So, I bet every one and their mother knows how to make these tissue paper poms, but I'm gonna do a vlog tutorial anyway. Because I didn't know how to do them until last week. So there.

Okay you ready for a little vlog action? :)








So there ya go. Now you know how I talk in real life. Bet you were wondering. ;)

I hope you have a fantabulous week, my dear friends!
