January is over! It was a tough one. I don't like winter very much. I woke up on the first of the month and got it into my head that I would challenge myself to abstain from alcohol for the entire month. To be honest, I haven't gone that long without a drink since......

Button Button

Button Button

I recently attended MAKER MAKER, "a monthly program of seriously small, after-hours art workshops" hosted by the Owens Art Gallery at Mount Allison University. This month was DIY buttons and it was so much fun! My friend and I each made 3 buttons and I honestly felt...

art = love

art = love

A thought: Making art only for yourself is a selfish act. Not that there's anything wrong with that! But if you keep it to yourself, if you never share it with anyone, it's sort of masturbatory (again, nothing wrong with a little of that)! 😉 Which isn't to say that...

Fuck SEO

Fuck SEO

I'm such a dummy sometimes. I find myself doing things I'm supposed to do, and then when I take a minute to examine my actions I realize that I am doing something I should with no real reason to do so. When will I learn to stop trying to do things the right way? I'm...

Thoughtful

Thoughtful

I am full of thoughts. Some are nice, some are mean, many are silly. My thoughts make up a huge part of who I am. They determine how I interact with the world, even though the world never has access to them, except through my filters. I have always prided myself in...
