Ultimate Llama Guide On My New YouTube Channel

Ultimate Llama Guide On My New YouTube Channel

Hi, friends! It’s been awhile since my last post and I apologize. I’m sure you understand though, given the circumstance of the world right now.

My family and I have been going through some things, just like so many others are. Job loss, health concerns, worries of the world, etc., etc.

In between the not so good, we count our blessings and do our best to push through. It’s important to find or make the good during these terrible, strange, frightening times.

I’m creating again. It was sporadic at best at the beginning of the pandemic. Like so many, I was scared, worried sick, and unsure of what the future holds. To be honest, I still am. But I’m trying to be careful and I’m still trying to be hopeful. All I can do is take it a day at a time and try my best to spread love, kindness, and hope.

I have acrylic pins available now! Ask me how to order or visit my Instagram!

My son has been encouraging me to start a YouTube channel, so I finally agreed yesterday. We worked all day to create videos for it and posted one already too! Check out my Ultimate Llama Guide!

It may be a little rough around the edges, but it’s a learning process and we’ll grow and get better as we go! But I assure you, it’s super cute and silly! Well worth the watch!

I’ve also created two 2021 calendars! One is an Ode To 2020 and the other is Llama Llove! Ask me how to order or visit my Instagram for more details!

In our first video, I explain the different parts of one of my llama illustrations. We tried to inject some humor and of course it’s full of color and joy!

I hope you’ll like, comment, subscribe, and share! This is going to be fun!

Women Artists Uplifting Eachother

Women Artists Uplifting Eachother

“You have a choice to either compete with the woman sitting next to you or to support her and do something together and root for each other.” – Kate Hudson

On Sunday, Mansfield Commission For The Arts had a reception for several local artists, myself included, preceding the upcoming Pickle Parade And Palooza. It would be my first reception ever.

I was one of the last artists to set up, so I had to set my tables up in the middle of the room, while everyone else had set up all around the edges. Which, worked out great for me! I was the first artist you’d see and would walk by when entering the room!

Here I am with my booth set up at the reception

Admittedly, I was nervous about the reception. I was fearful the other artists would not be accepting of me or my work. I was relieved to find that just wasn’t the case, though. Every artist I met was warm and kind. Each with amazing stories and all extremely talented. They all had only meaningful and positive things to say about my work.

As we were able to spend more time together, it was clear these women were supportive of each other and wanted to include me! They took pictures and video for social media. They asked the other artists and myself to talk about ourselves and our art, which they shared on their social media pages. They didn’t have to do this, but they wanted to. They were so positive and caring. It has meant so much to me and I will never forget it. We all connected on social media, so we can continue to support eachother and to stay in touch.

The whole experience was made all the better by these amazing, thoughtful women. This has not always been the case when dealing with other females in my life and the other artists agreed with me. I honestly don’t know why some ladies can be so harsh to other women. We should all be supporting one another, uplifting each other. It would make life so much better and more enriching.

I am grateful that I was able to participate in this wonderful event and to have met such interesting, strong, uplifting women. I had so much fun! I look forward to working with them again in the future and hope they all find great success in all they do.
