TMI Thursday: hormonal imbalance

Most of the people who know me/read here know or picked up on the whole my-hormones-are-not-really-right thing that I’ve been dealing with since March. It’s been kind of painful, and I was trying a variety of herbs and supplements – but I really suck at remembering to take more than one […]

Weekly Painting Promo #3

I was gone on Monday, so I decided to use one of my already-available paintings for my Thing-A-Week promo and discount it and hopefully bring it a little love. It’s already been on sale on etsy for a couple days and if you’re a fan of Kiery’s Whimsy on Facebook you’ve […]

GIFs

I randomly decided that I really wanted to learn how to make animated GIFs. They’re really fun to look at and I have a propensity for re-blogging them on mlkshk and tumblr, but I’ve never known how to make them. So I taught myself. It didn’t take as long as I […]

Everyone Is An Artist

(or what I learned from The Everyday Work of Art) I started thinking about this a while ago after reading The Everyday Work Of Art  and it kinda stuck out. I’ve heard a lot of people say “I’m just not artistic”, and I spent years telling myself the same thing. “I […]

Ding!

Fun Stuff I hit level 75 in WoW today, finally! I’ve been super super awful about playing lately, so today I decided to just do that instead of sitting at my computer debating about doing that, story boarding, or making the bed and spending the whole time flicking through facebook, etsy, […]

First Draft: Done

I finished the first draft of my screenplay! I printed it yesterday and started storyboarding with pencil in the margins. It’s an interesting process – much different than story writing. You can’t use any of the cop-outs that you can writing a narrative. You can’t say “They talked and became good […]

Fairy Stories

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that was incredibly hard to put down. I started reading Faerie Wars last night and read it after I woke up/ate lunch and have had a really hard time stopping. I’m really late to the discovery of fantasy as I never really […]

Crash Course Challenge day 9

I realize that this should have been posted last week, and we should have moved on further by now, but I ended up spending most of last week tired and internalizing rather than reading. I finished The Everyday Work of Art and Drawing On the Right Side of the Brain yesterday, […]

Art Boutique

It seems, that with art you have basically two types of buyers – you have the art collectors who can afford pieces that cost upwards of $300 (and the types of buyers that people trying to sell art would love to have buy a piece) and then you have everyone else […]

Dreaming

I’ve spent quite a bit of time over the last week dreaming. Imagining what I would do if money weren’t a factor, if I could do and be and have anything and everything I wanted – what would I do that would be amazing and satisfying and that I would love […]
