What Home Renovations are Left

We’ve done a lot since moving into our home last May.

Favorite Easy Art Youtube Channels

I dip my toe into drawing or painting maybe once a year. During Christmas, I paint people cards, and that seems to be the only time I paint during the year now! I would like to get in the habit of making art more frequently. But I also don’t want to be intimidated by beautiful yet ambitious art projects. Therefore, I’ve been searching for some easy art doodles or paintings I can do in less than 30 minutes - 1 hr. Here are some of my favorite Youtube Channels for making easy art:

Though you might’ve seen this room many times on Instagram, I actually haven’t shared it here on the blog! I’ve been making over the living room in phases and the final touches were installed in Feb/Mar. So it’s now time to reveal the room!
