Wearing my fave Mickey sweater (thanks @monabeille @brittyzombiehunter) for church and family day! 😃 Also rocking my fresh septum piercing that I got done last night.
I was fortunate enough to meet this beautiful soul today! She radiates creativity, and I had a blast art journaling with her.
Today I added a prayer for my fellow warriors onto the prayer wall. Fight on. ✊🏽
Swatching my new watercolor palette in my art journal.
Vet checkup for his arthritis.
Good food, good people, good times.
The reality of brain cancer. This custom-fitted mesh mask is used to bolt me down on the table while radiation beams are pinpointed at Lyle. This happens 5 times a week for 4 weeks straight.
“Be not afraid of going slow. Be afraid only of standing still.”
Cancer hurts those who fight from the sidelines, but it cannot cripple love. Thank you @monabeille @brittyzombiehunter @finchstacey for campaigning for me.
“You never know how strong you are until being strong becomes the only choice you have.”
“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
A drawing I did of Pikachu.
Enjoy this old poem. Circa October 2013.
My pops sent me this picture today via email. I think that it’s perfect for me because I tend to “do” a lot of things without the “before” part (namely #2). I tend to say a whole lot before my mind has completely processed what’s coming out of my mouth. I know a lot of people like this (no filter), and many would say there’s nothing wrong with it. However, in my own experiences, I’ve found myself backtracking on many occasions or having to further explain myself because what I said came across in a negative way, and it didn’t even convey what was actually in my head.
…but everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger…
I think that a wise person would heed these words. I can be the opposite…quick to anger and speak and slow to hear. It’s a bad combination of personality traits, if you ask me. I’m thankful that as a human being, there’s always room for growth and improvement. We can continually surrender ourselves and allow more of Him to shine through us.
Last night I started work on a new wood sign as a gift for a friend of mine who recently had a baby after 9+ years of trying. I’m loving it so far, and I can’t wait till I finish it so I can gift it!
Late night well spent.
My fountain is finally up and running after @jmor07 fixed it for me #garden #angelfountain #hollythegardener #jorgethehandyman
One of the planters I made over the weekend #diy #hollythegardener
My vines are getting out of control but I love them! Overgrown garden is the way to go. So much green.

This is the first greeting card I made two months ago. I made this one with a technique called “quilling.” It’s rather tedious, but the final look is pretty awesome if you ask me. Materials used include: card stock, textured paper, paper lace, quilling paper, quilling tool, & a rubber stamp.
Here’s another handmade greeting card. This particular card was made with embossing stamps, watercolor pencils, die cutting machine, card stock and sticker accents.
Somewhat different from the things I usually make, but it’s fun to learn and try new things. This particular greeting card was made with card stock, embossing stamps, water color pencils, a die cutting machine, and vellum.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted to this account. Here’s why: I’ve been working with a model I’ve never worked with before (she is AWESOME), and working on some things that are outside of my typical range. This piece, at 37″ x 18″, is more than twice the size I normally make. Exciting times!

One of my fave local artists. I’ve had the privilege of meeting her when we showcased side-by-side back in March at RAW’s Artist Showcase: Grandeur.
Must love art. Follow myself (@artbyflow) and my friend Nadia (@nadiavanilla)
