I haven’t posted in a while!  Here’s a little roundup of what I’ve been up to: My hyperlush assignment for MATS this week: We have a lot of snow in Michigan for November 20th!   I am in love with this gold paint:   Here is my wall art assignment for MATS from last week (using said gold paint): My husband built me a really awesome faux fireplace for our front room !!  I LOVE IT. I was supposed to go to a signing last night at Great Northern Trading Company, but the wind was howling and it was snowing… so I was a little concerned about driving an hour in the dark in that junk.  I was really looking forward to the meet and greet.   I’ve been practicing typography daily in November.  You can follow it on instagram by searching for...
Autumn in Michigan 2014

Autumn in Michigan 2014

Today seems like an appropriate day to introduce this year’s Autumn in Michigan sign!  We are having another polar vortex here in west Michigan.  It’s July 15th, and it’s cold and rainy.  I really don’t mind this weather, though, because Fall is my favorite season. This sign will be available in two sizes: 8×10″ and 4×5.”  In an effort to get myself a little more than caught up for Fall (since I always make everything to order and go a little bit crazy trying to keep up), I am going to take pre-orders for these at an earlybird sale price, and they will begin shipping at the end of August!  They can be customized to any state or town. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the Christmas in Michigan sign, which will also begin shipping at the end of...
June MATS Bootcamp Assignment

June MATS Bootcamp Assignment

    It was another nautical-inspired month for Make Art that Sells!  The June gallery will go live in a little over a week, but here is a preview of my art.  Some day, I would love to be a licensed artist!  I know I can make small prints of this and sell it, but I’d love to see this piece a lot...
In a nautical phase!

In a nautical phase!

I’ve had a really, really bad week.  (as if enough sad things haven’t already happened in 2014!  January, for one example).   I won’t go into details, but two very trying things happened within 6 days of each other.  I have said so many prayers of thanks that everyone is OK.  I’m trying to keep in mind that everything happens for a reason, and even though we may not know that reason right now, some day it will all make sense.  For some reason, the universe is telling my family not to run a 5k.   That leaves me hoping and praying for an uneventful, normal summer. I am taking two art classes right now – Bootcamp from Lilla Rogers is still going on, and I’m also taking Daring Adventures in Collage from Mati Rose.  Bootcamp Mini for the week was to sketch a ship in a bottle.  For collage, we had to make a creature collage.  So I sort of combined the two.  There is no bottle in my collage, but there’s a sailboat.  And a whale!  I am really liking whales right now!...
