It’s been a little tumultuous behind the scenes as our house moving plans have been delayed by some other exciting developments! I can’t quite talk about them yet till they’re a sure thing, but I’m hoping to have some good news to share soon. For now, we’re still in a bit of limbo as we pack up the house and wait on things to come the good word to come.
Meanwhile, I’ve been learning so much during my Making Art Work class! I’m halfway through the material and it has been an intense and informative experience. I’ve been experimenting with what I’ve been learning in class on my new Instagram account and taking my presentation to the next level with the launch for Temperance that happened in April. I’m really excited to present my art with as much care as the passion put in!
If you want to keep up with the revelations I’ve been having as I go through the class, I’ve started a Twitter thread to collect my thoughts here.
Coming in May
Thanks to MAW, I also have some great ideas for redesigning the online gallery for my Birthstone Goddesses. The class has given me a lot to think about as I move forward and re-center myself and my art biz. I’ve been pondering how I can make the experience better for myself and for my fans.
My overall plan is to get my core presentation running like a well-oiled machine so that I can move forward with all the big plans for the releases I have in store for the Birthstone Goddesses. I feel like if I can get that central rhythm for myself figured out that it’ll mean a smoother flow for everything else.
I’ll be adding another angel-themed digital coloring page inspired by one of the keyword sketches I created, plus I’m planning Behind the Scenes articles about the Birthstone Goddesses site, how I photograph my work, and an inspiration list of my favorite movies for visual inspiration.

In other news, I received my 2nd dose of the vaccine this week! This means being one step closer to being able to hang out with our friends again, which will be such a relief. It’s been a long journey for my husband and myself dealing with COVID this year, but I’m so grateful that we’ve been able to pull through these difficulties safely with Kev’s full recovery!
I hope everyone is happy, healthy, and hanging in there!
