My first time trying the Log Cabin pattern and my first time trying free motion quilting. I was really nervous about dropping the feed dogs but it was a lot of fun once I got the hang of it.

Washi tape pedicure! I used an xacto to cut out the shape from the tape and carefully placed it on my toe while the polish was tacky. Then I put several clear coat layers on top to keep it secure.

So our snowman’s face has started melting off. Is it just me or does he seem a little dramatic about it???

Is anyone else using these crazy things?! They seem to be really popular right now but I can’t bring myself to buy one yet. Am I missing out??

A bit of snow fun since we have had so much lately. Now back to creating!

YAY!!!

YAY!!!

Last night I took a painting class at a local studio called Paint like Cezanne. It was so much fun! No matter what medium you typically work in trying out something new can be informative and inspirational.

I am absolutely not a painter. But looking at an idea from a different perspective can broaden your horizons and also answer questions about problem areas in the medium you typically use.

Going to this class gave me a fresh perspective. It can be challenging and intimidating taking a 2 hour class but it is well worth it. With about 30 minutes left I panicked and thought there is no way I will be leaving with a finished piece. But that is part of the beauty of these exercises. In the end you pull through have fun and learn a lot. I can’t wait to go back!

Paint like Cezanne class at a local studio. We made these beautiful pieces in only 2 hours! It’s always refreshing to take a class and learn something new.

No matter what medium you typically work in taking a class in a different medium can give you a fresh perspective. All mediums can offer solutions and inspiration. It can be challenging to try and complete a painting in the span of two hours, but I bet that you will surprise yourself in what you can accomplish!
