I’ve loved taking pictures forever now but have been taking even more ever since we had Addy. My poor poor hard drive struggle. Lately it’s been a month by month project and she has her own Tumblr page over here.

However, I want to focus on capturing images on a weekly bi-weekly basis so I’m doing a 26 week photo challenge now. Trying to be realistic since we will have a new addition soon. I can always increase right? Right.

Let’s do this thang!

Reader Survey of Sorts.

I’ve been sporadic with this blog for awhile now and I need your help. What would you like me to see me write about? I am a scatterbrained Leo that loves art, watercolor, beauty products, shopping, home decorating, organization, being a mom and photography. Not in that order.

One of my new year’s resolutions is to get more organized and timely with this blog (even though this baby is due in March) and reaching out to others who share the same interests I do. So let me know what you would like to see, I would love to know. Also, tweet, Instagram or pin this if you think you know someone else that could help me out too.

Hope you are having a great day.

What I’m Working On – No. 1

December is almost over, but I refuse to believe it. I signed up for a class that starts in January called, “Make Art that Sells: Assignment Bootcamp”. It is one of Lilla Rogers’ classes and I have been curious about her for awhile now. She is a well-known and successful art director and she represents Lisa Congdon, an artist whose work I love by the way. Another one of my friends who primarily uses Adobe Illustrator, Jannie Ho, has taken one of her courses as well. I’ve heard nothing but good things so I’m excited!

I needed something that had a flexible timeline, promoted community and gave me a swift kick in the behind so my art translates into tangible real-world items. Just more pieces of the puzzle to figure out and I can’t wait to start.

Is there anything you are particularly looking forward to in 2015?

A Self-Prescribed Time Out.

take a time out

I’ve been enjoying my vacation so much. Downtime with my munchkin and husband, it’s been great to just have an all around time out and get recharged. Plus I LOVE not having to get up and go all the time when I am 30 weeks along. I waddle with the best of them and I’m just more tired this time around. Could be in part due to the munchkin, the cold weather with barely any sunlight (really don’t like) or just me. The shop is closed until January, I’ve been painting a bit and I also just finished reading this book, Urban Watercolor Sketching: A Guide to Drawing, Painting, and Storytelling in Color. This book had some good watercolor advice, application techniques and just good information if you are starting out with watercolor or have been working with it for awhile.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and the New Year is kind to you!

New Channel and a New Print!

I’ve been a busy girl over here trying to figure out how to record and edit video on my iPad. I set up my YouTube channel, fluximagery, (like and subscribe!) and two videos are published so far. I’ll show more works in progress in the future. There is no sound because that part was driving me insane with copyright infringement and all that.

One day I will have sound on my videos, mark my words. If you have any feedback, leave me a comment, I would love it.

Also, this print is now available in my Etsy shop right here.
