Finally! Some New Items..

Happy Sunday everyone!

I wanted to share some new items from my Etsy shop today. It is weird because I listed them yesterday and I feel that it gave my shop a different look all being next to each other. Do you think my shop "look" is different now? Eventually those listings will get mixes in and then it will be back to the "Something for Everyone" craziness that is Art 2 the Extreme, but for now I am happy to have something different in my shop. I AM MORE THAN JUST CRAYONS! Haha... cool crayons though.

Anyways, here are some photos for your viewing enjoyment. Thank you for taking the time to look! Comment on a photo, leave your shop link, and you could be my next Etsy Mini feature!

Easter was EGG-celent...

Happy Tuesday everyone! 

I wanted to share some of my Easter photos with you because I had so much fun coloring Easter eggs! For most of the pictures, all I used was the wax crayons. I would Use the crayon, dip in a light color, use the wax crayon (where ever the wax crayon is, dye will not go), dip in another color, and so on and so forth. That is how I have so many layers of color on my egg.... sorta like batiking... I even used a tie dye egg kit for some!

Anywho, I had a ton of fun! Let me know what you think and what egg is your favorite!

In Memory of Mrs. LAUGH as well as Updates and My First Shop Live Experience!

Hi everyone!

I have not gotten a chance to blog for the last few days because I have been very busy with my teaching and wedding planning, which is good and bad. I also have been bummed lately with the unexpected passing of a fellow staff member of my school who I interacted with pretty much every day I was there. I will call her Mrs. Laugh to respect her privacy and the privacy of her family. 

It has been very sad for my staff, her family, and those who knew here. Many students were greatly affected by this news as well. I have fortunately not had to deal with death too many times in my life besides one set of grandparents (my grandfather died last week). It is hard at any age to deal with death and I am not a big fan of the feelings and visuals that come along with funerals. I am not sure anyone is comfortable with those things. Tomorrow is going to be very hard for me to attend the viewing, but I really want some closure and to express my condolences  to her family. In her honor, I will be creating an inspirational artwork piece this summer. I have an idea of what I will do, but it will be my little way of remembering her and passing on her memory.

Well.... I got a little of topic there, but I wanted to mention something about her and what has been going though my head. Blogging at times for me is a way to vent, so there you have it...

Tonight I participated in my 1st SHOP LIVE event thought ETSY! This event featured 30 products, 30 Etsians, and in 30 minutes (items were all at a discount and some with free shipping). I would highly suggest attending the next one, which I will try to post when I find out. The host, Marichelle, did a wonderful job!

 I have fellow Etsian, Savor, to thank  for my finding this event because they twittered about the event right before it started. I did make a purchase (seen up top) from Savor, who was a HUGE supporter of me when I was going though my rough patch. Check out Savor's shop and the  limited sale price of their Coconut Mochi Cream Fraiche in their Etsy shop! 12 left when I last looked (I was the 1st!).

I am also offering 20% off ANY item in my shop (except memory blankets) thought Midnight TONIGHT (THURSDAY). Just type in "SHOP LIVE" in the message to seller section when checking out!

Thank you so much for reading and your support during this time of saddness. Keep the family of "Mrs. Laugh" in your prayers please.

Photo of the Day

For the Photo of the Day, I have chosen a recent purchase of mine from a local craft fair I was a part of.  

This "Italia" alphabet art was created by Artsy Alphabet by Steph. Since I am creating a black and white Italy theme in my guest restroom, I wanted the frame/artwork to fit the look I was going for. I chose the letters from a large selection of styles, fonts, and type taken by Steph Wilcoxen. They assembled the frame and my photo choices within a matter of minutes and I was free to take it with me right then and there!

Prices are very reasonable. I paid $20 for 5-6 letters. 3-4 Letters is only $15. 9-10 Letters, $30.

Their website is in the works, but you can e-mail her at
