Pantry Makeover: Pantry Moths Edition


See that happy couple up there?  Well we’ve come out on the other side now… but just a couple weeks ago we were fighting the dreaded PANTRY MOTHS.  You may laugh, but please go google this and then come back.  It is THE single most disgusting thing I’ve experienced.  Picture a lice outbreak in your […]

Christmas Painting Re-Cap


Christmas is such a fun time of the year to be creative!  There is inspiration everywhere I look, both at home and at school.  I enjoyed painting several canvases for my mom’s non-profit shop, Re-Made for a Purpose, and hand-lettering everything I could get my hands on.
