Oh hey, hi, Hello there!
*dusts off this thing*
It has been so long since I’ve done any sort of update via the blog. I am busy as usual with class launches, design team work, commissions, and Patreon.
So, as a result – this post has to be one big BRAIN DUMP of information.
+ This month I created four videos as one of Donna Downey’s Brand Ambassadors. They are totally free to watch and full of content. See them here:
Video 1 – Make a book!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSBhcIH9NWk
Video 2 – Play with Gold Leaf!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxJ0NE7Vy24
Video 3 – Texture!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr_0KbCO4-A
Video 4 – Create with Stencils! Frida Inspired!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg2WaGJ3uB4
+ This month I finally released V.2 of my Dear Heart Oracle Deck!
I received so many messages, seriously… so many, asking for Dear Heart Oracle to be reprinted. It was never really on the books, and I already moved to working on a new deck. But, I finally caved.
This time I painted a new back and added three new cards –
Inspired – Awakening – Illumination
There is something special about creating your own deck. When I turn to these cards they are so familiar. Every little part. It’s like consulting an old friend at this point. If you love tarot, oracle and creativity – I really encourage you to make the jump. You really won’t regret it.

+ I also opened up the doors on my very first SOLO Online Art Journaling Class – The Magic Forest.
This was so scary for me. I’ve taught in plenty of other online classes – but never something all of my own. I didn’t really have a single clue what would happen. Would I even have students? Then, if I got students, would they love it?
I hit launch right before going to an eye appointment. I figured I wouldn’t be able to sit and watch and worry. When I got out of my appointment, I already had a lot of students!
At this point, there is somewhere in the neighborhood of 73 incredible artists in the class and the art makes me swoon, here’s a taster:
+ This month my One Badass Art Journal Lesson went LIVE!
I created it around “I am my own SOUL MATE.”
+ I’m a member of the StrumpetStencils Design Team!
I can’t tell you what a big deal this is for me. Not only is Sarah an artist I look up to and love, she is a dear friend too. I already work with her stencils a lot – it makes sense for me to be here.
(Psst, Sarah gave me a special code for you guys too! Use code ” STRUMPETCRISTIN ” for 15% off in her store – https://www.etsy.com/shop/strumpetstencils )
+ And finally, this month I’m trying to keep up with my Pull Pen Paint classwork.
Not only am I a teacher in this course – but also a student, for the second year in a row.
Last year the class started out as a month long journey and turned into a year ! I’m
excited to see where this year takes me.
Whew, I think that’s everything? As you can tell, I’ve been a bit swamped in the best possible way.
I think I’ll go now, but I’ll leave you on this note:
