Happy Halloween!

Recently, I discovered Kinsley has been making art videos WITHOUT me. So, as a little surprise for her, I edited one of her videos into a Halloween Special and uploaded it to YouTube. To make this craft, all you need is some paper and markers. Then, to compliment the video, I created two templates: a witch and a warlock. So, if you’re looking for a […]

So, in an […]

Appreciating the Small Things

It’s easy to come to this state in which everything merely exists. Yet, behind every manmade item — from a little mug to a great architectural feat, was a person. A person who thought this thing was of value. Whether it’s the color of someone’s wall or a work of art in a living room, a decision was made. Granted, there may have not been […]
