September Art and Journal Entry

Let’s Dance!! It’s beginning the most wonderful time of the year! I want to enjoy every bit of the seasons to come. I think we can all agree 2020 has just been an extremely weird year, but I am putting on my rose colored glasses and pulling out the autumn leaves and ready to start decorating for fall. I also plan to add a bit of Halloween in the mix. Typically this time of the year I am so busy making product for shows, I don’t stop and smell the Pumpkin Spice long enough to enjoy the season. This year it is going to be different. The Pandemic has really helped me focus and slow down a bit. I am painting more which is my most favorite thing to do. I am so grateful for the time of rediscovering my passion and to PLAY!

The September CWR stationery/planner/journal kit is “Cozy Autumn Days” I will be using the new Simple Stories ” Cozy Days” line to curate a perfect autumn kit! What do you think of when you think of Cozy? Here is a few illustrations of what I think of, this is a printable and can be use in your journal/ planner or notebook.

Also, one of my Favorites Autumn things to make is PUMPKIN COOKIES! Oh yes, these are like little pumpkin bread cakes. I will be making a batch soon to send to my little sister, these are are favorite too! I had to share the recipe with you, see below for the recipe.

This month I will be taking another Mindy Lacefield’s art class, called Happy Haunts…so excited. I really enjoyed her Mystic Unicorn School class. I will be makinga junk journal binder for all things Halloween (video coming soon). I also signed up for a course called Fearless Art by Shawna Clingerman. I’m really excited and hoping to learn to take that leap of complete faith and focus on what my next stepping stone as an Artist.

SAVE THE DATE: November 7-14th, 2020. I will have a new video series in the works for Christmas! It’s going to be a “Creative Christmas” Series filled with Journaling, Christmas projects and Fun! There will be a few live videos on Facebook as well.

Well that is a wrap for this month’s Newsletter! Let me end with another Favorite Thing!

Who remembers these colorful pencils from when you were a kid? When you write the lead changes colors. I used them in the Mystic Unicorn School and on some of my journaling pages. They are so fun! Brings out the inner child!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy September!

June 2020 Newsletter

Live in the Sunshine, swim in the sea, drink in the wild air~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello and welcome to the vert first “Creative Hoots” Newsletter! I am so excited about starting a Inspiring, Creative, and Fun publication. My thought process is to share projects and ideas I am working on; tips and tricks; what is inspiring me and offer printables for you to enjoy too! I feel this newsletter will be continuously evolving and hope you enjoy the ride with me!

Here we are in June with all the feelings of summer along with Father’s Day and my birthday month! Here in Texas, we have already had almost temperatures in the 90’s. The beginning of summer is all grins and carefree days but as we approach the end of July it becomes unbearably hot, dry and just plain miserable and I’m waiting for cooler days.

I recently joined a art club from Tricia Robinson called the God Made Girl Club and I am loving it. She talked about giving yourself permission to be YOU! So I have decided it is time to add color EVERYWHERE! Projects I haven’t painted, I’m going to paint and things I have been too ‘scared’ to paint, I’m going to paint. I’m so excited to have my colorful light shine.

My Permission Slip

First Colorful project I have completed is adding color to the front porch, I purchased these fun pin wheels from Hobby Lobby. Painted the pots with Ocean Blue Chalk Paint and spray painted the white river rocks, pink, yellow and blue.

Painted pots with Pinwheels!

I’m in progress of finishing up this train case painted in candy colors. I’ll be having a video series soon on steps on how to paint your own.

Hand Painted Train Case

Summertime Nostalgia~ New Video Series will be coming this month. Starting on June 8-June 14, 2020. I think being at home so much over this quarantine time and finding a box full of childhood photos has made me remember how fun and carefree past Summers were. Here is the schedule:
