The adventures of Aaahhhh is a series I want to start that challenges me to use different mediums to have Aaahhhh run from, like the first time I made him I had made a paper airplane that kept flopping over, so I drew a little stick figure and bold letters saying AAAHHHH! This time I… Read More The Adventures of Aaahhhhhh!
I love flowers. I love anything beautiful really. I also love art, making things, dreaming of plans and ambitions, and having things to do. So, I am trying going to become a farmer-florist. I mentioned this briefly in my last post, but I hadn’t really done anything yet. I now have some cactus flower… Read More Becoming a Farmer-Florist: My Dilemma
No, I didn’t draw in a reading book. That is my art journal, so please don’t freak out. Amongst all the crazy things I’m trying to do mentioned in the previous post I did find some time to draw. I like the look of the words in the background, except for one thing… YOU CAN STILL… Read More Trying A New Technique
Hey everyone! No, I didn’t die (or this would be titled Death Update), there’s just been a whole lot of craziness going on. Most of it has been big whole-family changes, but during that time I was able to focus on some things for the future. I am a very visionary person, which is a good… Read More Life Update!
I love it when I get inspired by other artists (generally those that are much more awe inspiring than I am). Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of Ellen Jewett’s work in sculpting, and it is absolutely extraordinary! I LOVE the detail! It has that surrealistic look, and the way everything intertwines just blows my mind. Here are a… Read More Drawing Squirrels and Inspiration

I “love” it even more when I’m depressed and then I go to bed and wrestle with the vivid imagination combined with awful feelings. The great thing, however, is… Read More Saved -By Haley Griffis
The other day I was sitting in the living room with my awesome dad, who listens (actually listens) to my endless ramble on art. He’s awesome. Anyway as I continued in talk for hours mode, he asked “So what is your favorite stuff to use?” Well, I had to think (aloud) about that for a while… Read More Why I Love Drawing
I love making paper flowers at the moment. How long will I still love making them? I’m not sure. I may need a break from them after a few more months. I made these flowers a couple of weeks ago but forgot to post about them. I think they look kind of whimsical. To make them I… Read More Lots of Flowers

There may be some differences in PH* content such as Elmer’s glue has an acidic PH of 5 along with other ingredients while other… Read More The Art Encyclopedia
I plan to make this into a mini series. There are just so many things that I want feedback on, I’m unsure of, or don’t seem big enough to blog about. In fact I want feed back on whether this is a good idea too. 🙂 First I’ll talk about the snail. My sister and I had discovered the… Read More Lots of Little Things
