I've been quite busy during my blog break... I've finished fall semester at Oklahoma City Community College and I've been accepted to University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I will be getting my B.A. in Sustainability Studies. I'll be taking all online classes for Spring semester, which starts on January 22nd.

I finished moving most of my things from Oklahoma to Wisconsin, including my puppy, Frankie.

I've been diligently working on handmaking pretty much all of my christmas presents and I have a few commission paintings that have been keeping me busy. I've snapped a few pictures and once the gifts are in the possession of their recipients I will post a few pics of my craftiness (although I can't take full credit... Pinterest was a huge inspiration!)

Here's a few of my latest paintings...

I actually made a new blog for my Creative Writing class that features all of my poetry that I wrote for class this past semester. It's published for anyone who would like to see it... I got 250 out of 250 points and my professor asked if he could use it as an example for upcoming classes :) Look Again

Hopefully now that I'm not waking up to homework, I will have time to start blogging a few mornings a week and get caught up on all of my favorite blogs that I miss so much!

Happy Holiday Week!


  1. Lol ~ looks like we both decided to jump back into blogging at the same time! I love that top painting, the bird and the quote together are perfectly perfect. I'm disappointed you won't be heading to MA for school but thrilled you were accepted and are finding your groove. I made all of my gifts this year too except for books and music. It was a very creative Christmas and it felt good to get back to what I love. :)

  2. Great minds think alike, Melinda! I'm so happy that you like the new paintings :) I might not be headed to MA this spring, but I'm planning on taking a trip there this summer... if I like it then I just might be living pretty close to you next fall! I think that a creative Christmas is the very best kind of Christmas :)

  3. Congratulations! And I'm glad to see you back to blogging!

  4. Welcome back to Blogger, Sara! I've missed you! <3 I hope you'll be able to blog more now. :)

    I agree with Mom, I'm disappointed you're not moving to MA, haha...it'd be pretty cool if you lived that close! ;)

    Your new paintings are gorgeous, as usual...I love the "Be the Change" one! <3 Wish it was hanging on my wall. :)

    Merry Christmas, Sara! Hugs! <3
