My daughter has been involved with helping to raise funds for Riley Hospital for Children the past couple of years and part of her teams fundraising efforts is to host a dance marathon at their school. She asked if I would create a set of wings in the dance theme colors to use as a backdrop for the photo booth...which I happily obliged as this is a cause near and dear to Alayna’s heart. I can’t wait to see all those sweet faces in front of these wings! (Completed wing photos in comments below!)
Alayna is fundraising online if you’d like to send a few dollars her way. They are half way to their goal of $15,000 and would no doubt be thrilled to up that number before the dance tonight! All proceeds benefit the kiddos at Riley to help provide life-changing care and comfort as they battle cancer, diabetes, heart defects and other illnesses. Donation link is below!Thank you! 😘❤️

Yesterday was my last welding class with The Latinas Welding Guild (😢) where we all had the opportunity to focus on a personal project, putting our newly acquired welding skills to work. Since I was in need of a tool hanger for my new easel, I knew exactly what I wanted to work on.

And because Cash Fine Cabinetry wasn’t down with my answer of “ah, I’m just going to go back there and wing it” when he curiously asked “do you have design plan?” he graciously offered to help me map it out. 😬 I mean, I had a rough idea...but it was apparent after chatting some more with him about what I wanted, this was something I couldn’t just wing. 😬

So, with Aaron’s help, I quickly had measurements and a cardboard template (oh yes, he did! Bless him.) in hand and off I went to cut and weld this fantastical tool hanger!

I love that the arm is extendable so I can easily work on pieces up to 4’ x 4’! So thrilled with how it turned out and how much easier it makes my job! 🙌

Have I mentioned how much I love welding?! Seriously, I can’t stop thinking of things I want to make! Thanks again to @thelatinasweldingguild and our fantastic instructor, Charles, for the opportunity to learn a new skill! And @cashfinecabinetry, you are the best! 😘

I’ve been carving quite a few of these “Home” word arrows since my wife has become a realtor. Every time one of her clients buys a house that they will occupy, she gifts them with an arrow she commissioned me to create. Isn’t that just the sweetest?

So incredibly thrilled with this custom easel! This idea was hatched a couple of weeks ago when I took a quick sketch depicting a rotating easel that had both vertical and horizontal positions down to @northamd at @tomlinsonmanufacturing. David, in all his genius, refined my base design and then designed and machine tooled the rotating component that enables me to spin my canvas (up to 48”!!) as I carve or paint. And because I’m right into welding, he cut all the steel to size so I could then assemble and weld the easel myself...which I loved every second of! Such a satisfying feeling seeing this project come together so beautifully! A huge thank you to David and the awesome folks at Tomlinson Manufacturing...can’t even tell you how much I appreciate your hand in this project and how much of a game changer this is for me! 😘 ...

For the last month, I’ve been attending welding classes facilitated by The Latinas Welding Guild at RUCKUS Makerspace and let me tell you...I. LOVE. IT!! This art form challenges me in all the ways that make me feel inspired, determined and exhilarated! Once I get some more hours and experience under my belt, next up is learning how to use a plasma cutter because ooooh do I have ideas! A huge thank you to Consuelo Poland for this awesome photo of me...and, for turning this dream of yours to empower and teach women to weld into a reality...and for working your ass off to make sure it’s accessible to women of all walks. ❤️❤️❤️ ...

While perusing @fremantlemarkets last night, we met @irisphoto_mitchel_zeer, who takes breathtaking photos of eyes, specifically the iris. I was immediately drawn into his booth and was mesmerized by the photos that were hanging on the walls...they looked like supernova mandalas! There are some stunning eyeballs out there! M and I of course needed photos for ourselves and I’m pretty sure we both gasped when Mitchel handed ours over. I can’t take my eyes off our eyes. ❤️😍 If you’re in/near Freo, do go get your gorgeous eye photographed by Mitchel, you’ll be amazed! ... See MoreSee Less

Ah! So exciting! My Glass Etching classes at Sun King Brewing Company was named “Best Crafting Class” in the December issue of Indianapolis Monthly Magazine!

If you were to ask me one year ago if I’d be teaching, much less selling out classes AND be included in the Best of Indy issue you likely would have heard me laugh. But dang...here I am, doing this, and loving this and loving that you’ve been loving it. So, thank you! Thank you for attending, for your eagerness and enthusiasm to learn a new skill and for helping to make me a better teacher along the way! I look forward to another year of creating with you! January’s classes are listed on my website (link in comments!) if you’d like to join in on the fun! Early bird tickets are just $30 until Dec. 1st!
