Shannon Green’s Abandoned Treasures & Mini Spinner Rack

I’ve been a little busy over the past few months including moving to NW Arkansas and adjusting to some pretty major life changes. But I know things happen for a reason and in the end it’s all good! Over the years I’ve had lots of requests to sell my creations or excess supplies and I’ve […]

Some of my favorites (and not so favorites) from #NAMTA

I was very fortunate to have been able to attend NAMTA‘s Art Materials World here in Houston last week. It’s a trade show similar to CHA but caters more to those in the fine art world. The show was held in conjunction with CAMEX, the Campus Market Expo for college stores. NAMTA occupied one exhibit […]

The Inspiration Conspiracy

I’m obsessing over a new project. It’s called The Inspiration Conspiracy and it’s a mentoring program where larger, more established YouTube channels help smaller channels by increasing their exposure and providing support. This is only for those channels who produce creative content…mostly arts and crafts related. Exactly how does this work? Well, I’ve only done […]


Visual Commonplacing in My Zibaldone

I’ve decided I don’t like the words ‘art journal’ anymore. Art journals have expectations. They want you to fill them with beautiful works of art. Sometimes I’m okay with that but sometimes I’m not. ‘Sketchbook’ doesn’t work for me because I don’t sketch. I don’t do ‘scrapbooking’ because all those pictures of my family just […]

I sometimes order light bulbs from Amazon, right? Especially the decorative CFL globes for the bathrooms. They can be hard to find and Amazon has good prices on them. I order from Amazon pretty regularly and usually just include the light bulbs with my order. Amazon ships the light bulbs with the rest of my […]
