Prayers Have Been Answered


Someone pinch me! I feel like I'm seeing the light, at the end of what felt like, a never-ending tunnel. My life is blossoming right now (out of nowhere) and I haven't been this happy in a very long time!! Things are finally coming together, y'all! 

Thank you GC!! The first person to purchase a print was a fellow blogger! The moment I logged onto my Etsy account and realized I sold a print, I shot out of my chair and started dancing. 

Sale #1: Dragonflies 

I feel so fortunate to have this blog, allowing me to reach out and connect with so many cool ass people. I am so blessed. The second sale came tonight when I was at the movies, seeing Get Out with my coworkers Arielle and Nikita. One of our other coworkers Karla bought a print, to give her best friend as a birthday gift! My art is being gifted as presents!?!?! WHAT. Seriously? So dope. 

Sale #2: Terrarium 

Even my GM at work asked if I would do a commission for him, of his family. He needs it by next month for his wife's birthday, but that would completely interrupt the timeline I created for my series. Ugh I don't know what to do...

I was able to video chat with Michelle for an hour on Tuesday, for the first time since she left for NZ! She gave me a tour of the family's property that she's nannying for and it's stunning. STUNNING. They have so much land that stretches on and on, into the horizon. Seeing her face and how happy she looked, just reminded me and fueled me to kickass this year, for us. She's the biggest blessing the Universe has ever given me and it's my responsibility to step up and work harder and smarter than I ever have before. We're going to video chat every Tuesday and talk art! :)) My three secret weapons for manifesting art ideas are: pot, music and yoga. In that order haha

I contacted High Times Magazine and asked them for an address, so I can send them a print of The Garden of Weeden! They have 1.6 million followers on Instagram. I'm also waiting to hear back from Charlo Green the Weed Queen, who I first sent that print to. It was supposed to arrive today :)

Speaking of my coworker Nikita, we went to YogaFest together on Saturday. I got to meet more of her friends, who were all so cool, unlike the weather that day. haha I feel like I would have had a much more enjoyable time, if it wasn't so damn hot. The festival was located in this huge park, with vendors and booths along the perimeter. I went to the website and it said early admission for a booth is $350, so I'm definitely selling my art there next year! Anyways, we got there around 11 and browsed the area and laid our mats out on this huge, open green. I have never done yoga with so many other people surrounding me. We were literally smack dab in the center and it was so magical to flow and practice with other people all around us.

Also, this incredibly handsome dude who comes into my work, just followed me on Instagram tonight! :) He plays soccer at the University nearby and he might be one of the most attractive human beings I've ever seen. I still have quite a bit of insecurity about my acne scars though, which makes it really hard for me to talk to him when he comes in. So when I got home from the movies tonight, I bought a chemical peel off Groupon! Original price was $125 and I got it for $47. I'm so excited to book the appointment and try this out. I was looking at before and after photos on Google and the patients look noticeably more healed in the after pic. 

chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. 

Here's a sneak peek of my next drawing, which will be done in two weeks!

My new favorite song: Sweet Lovin' by Sigala

Much Love Guys!!!!! 


  1. YOU SOLD 2 prints. I'm so happy for you. It's cool that you two will be chatting everyweek. Man, I wish all the best in the world.

    1. Thank you!! Selling prints is literally the most amazing, indescribable feeling ever! You should be #3! :)

  2. I WAS FIRST????? eeeeeeee!

    can't wait to see my print!

    PS - the GM needs to give you more notice than one month. perhaps do his art, but get it ready for xmess instead.

    1. Girl, you were #1!! My very first customer and for that, I will never ever forget you and you will always hold an extremely special place in my heart. <3

      Thanks for the advice GC. He actually got promoted and is leaving our store in a week or two to become a district manager in the Midwest. He knows that my schedule is booked for the rest of the year, so we'll see what happens. I really don't enjoy doing commissions
