Hello! Thank you for visiting ‘Making it up as i go’ (2me4art.com)…that is all of us, is it not? I am a self taught artist, photographer & blogger. I’d include writer, but i am still learning how to accomplish that without sounding like an idiot. I have a terrible habit of writing, then hitting ‘Publish’ or ‘send’ and then editing at a much later date, if ever. Which is why you will find errors throughout.
I am a Vermonter to my core…alas life as seen fit to have me live out my days in Alabama. I do love Alabama with the exception of August, which is akin to Hell, i would imagine.
I share my little corner of Birmingham, Alabama (& my trips home to Vermont & trips to the Gulf Coast) with my camera, paintbrush, colored pencils, acrylic, oil, oil pastels, etc and i my art projects with my art class kids. I also LOVE buying junk & making it into something cool. It is more fun than shopping like a normal person. I Love to garden. I love growing everything…if something i plant dies, it wasn’t meant to be & now i can go buy something else! I plant flowers, herbs, veggies, blueberries, strawberries…i am happiest outside playing in the dirt.
I am combining all my loves together here. I will warn you however, I do ramble on & babble. And all my writing mistakes? forgive me, i have a hard time sitting still. I’ve got stuff to make.
thanks for the visit.
p.s. I am a huge BUY LOCAL fan. I visit cool, privately owned stores around me & shoot their cool stuff. I do this because small business owners are our neighbors. These brave neighbors make our small cities or towns a better place. It means our money stays in our towns. We have to support them, otherwise we will be a world of ugly corporate giants like Walmarts (gasp) everywhere. And we cannot allow that to happen. Buy Local…easy enough…shop Farmer’s Markets, Art galleries, Nurseries, and Gift shops.
