In 2018, one of my artsy friends, Shellie, and I started hanging out on the occassional Friday night to work on art projects for ourselves. I might work on a sewing project while she’d work on a drawing, or she’d cross-stitch while I did water colors. We’d invite other gals to join and I’d always […]
I love aerial videos – who doesn’t? I love them even more when it’s a new perspective of my surroundings. Normally we’re limited to what we can see with our own eyes when driving, taking a walk, or riding a bike. Occasionally, when flying (which I haven’t done in a few years), you get the […]
