Goodbye October! My favorite month of the year has come and gone. Now that I’m a mother I feel as if time is going 10x faster than it did before.
Being a new mom has made my internal clock all out of whack. Days feel like weeks but weeks feel like days and months flash by in the blink of an eye. I never know what day it is anymore, but that doesn’t matter.
It’s hard adjusting to not having much time to work. Being self-employed I didn’t take a maternity leave because I obviously don’t get paid leave lol. Much of my work is fulfilling orders through my website, Amazon, Etsy, etc, so I work as I get sales but I still have to keep up with writing new blog posts, social media, research, and planning among other things so I’m still here working!
It’s definitely an adjustment working here and there as I can but it’s going well.
October didn’t bring much new art since I’m adjusting to my new life and routines, but I was able to do a few things.
My favorite color is green ( obviously 😉 ) but blue is definitely one of my favorite colors to create with haha. Can you tell?
This watercolor winter landscape was the biggest piece of art I completed this month, and it’s available as a print, card, and vinyl sticker. ❄️
I get a lot of questions about what paper I use for my art prints and greeting cards, so if you’re interested in reading more, check out my post on the best paper for prints and cards! Spoiler: I use Red River Paper!
Hello November 🍂
This November marks my 3rd wedding anniversary (again with the time flying by fast) and I’m looking forward to the holiday season.
Today, on November 1st, we woke up to snow for the first time this year! And to celebrate, we are putting up our Christmas tree (crazy or what?).
I’m always one for decorating for Christmas around Thanksgiving, but this year I want to feel that Christmas magic early so I decided to start decorating early. Why not?
As the year comes to a close, the Green Artist Blog will be turning 2 soon! In 2024, I want to create more posts (and maybe a series) about creating and managing an art blog to help other artists and creatives who are interested in blogging. It’s really fun and is a great side income!
Thanks for reading!
