Just a little update.

I haven’t been very present on my blog. One reason is I haven’t had any internet at home and I don’t live close enough to town to just go sit at a food place and just hit off the wifi. I’ve also been putting stuff in storage for a move from Arkansas to Texas. I actually leave tomorrow morning! It’s going to be a nice new start down there. I should be posting more regularly once I get down there. I want to get back to three times a week. I did write several food blogs yesterday that I have scheduled to come out over the next several Wednesday’s. I’ll definitely have several gardening blog posts to do when I get to Texas for my Friday posts. Monday’s are going to be empty for awhile until I get my own place down there. That’s my kind of home decor day to share decorating idea’s. I also do thrift hauls on that day too. I have lots of blog posts planned for sure. I have lots of ideas and look forward to sharing them with you.

Much love & Many blessings!

I’ve been absent.

I’ve been absent for awhile. I started another 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I started that on January 1st and have been focusing on that. You can check out my art blog to see all the paintings so far. My theme is floral and I love doing them. I’m working in acrylics. I started the challenge out with little canvas’s then switched to 140 lb watercolor paper when I ran out. The watercolor paper works better than I thought it would, so I decided to stick with it for the rest of the challenge. Once the challenge is over I’ll be posting them for sale on my Etsy shop. This is going to be the year of art for sure! I’ll be really working on getting my shop going good and putting work out there. I’ll be doing postcards, little painted canvas magnets, big pieces, etc. I’m going to be putting out a lot of work! Selling originals and prints.

Other non art related stuff that’s going on. I’ve been thrifting several times since my last post. I’ve gotten several neat things I need to post about and I will eventually. I’ve gotten a few new plants also. Two were Christmas presents and one was a birthday present. My birthday was January 2nd and I hit the big 3-0! Not as horrible as I thought it would be. I just don’t know where the years have gone and I don’t feel as accomplished as I thought I would be by now. That’s OK thought because it happens and you can’t change that. I’m just working on the present to make the future awesome! I might be a home owner soon also which would be amazing! I’m hoping everything falls together so I can get the house. I’m sure there’s some other stuff I could talk about, but I’m drawing a blank right now.

Here’s a link to my art shop and art blog. The art shop doesn’t have anything posted in it right now. I just switched back over to doing Etsy from another site, so I’m waiting for the challenge to be over. I won’t be doing daily paintings and can focus on it better.

New Opportunity.

Last week I received a message from someone at a new blogging site called My Trending Stories. They had came across my blog and were interested in me being a contributor. We exchanged messages for a couple days. I wanted to get a better feel for them before I said yes. I decided it would be a good decision on my part in getting my name out there and said yes. I got my bio set up and posted my first article. I’ll be posting a second one here soon. I really like the set up of this new site, but I will still be posting here also. Be sure to go check out my posts there because I’ll be posting stuff besides art stuff. I really only post about my pieces on this site. While your on My Trending Stories check out other authors articles. There’s lots of interesting articles on there.

Here’s the link to my profile where you can also get to my articles. Be sure to give me a follow so you can keep up with what I post.

Blog changes!

I’ve changed some stuff on my blog. The first thing I did was change the name from “DuckyLayne” to “Grow.Eat.Create.Love”. I’ve done this because I’m merging a couple blogs together to have less to keep up with. This will result in more posts here too. The name fits my life too. This has been my Instagram name for awhile now if you want to follow me on there. I’ll be merging this blog, my gardening blog, and art blog together. I’m trying to par down in everything in my life. I’ve got lots of big plans in the near future for this blog. I’m going to also start sharing recipes and DIY tutorials. I love to cook! I’m working on a way to make money while on the road so I can start traveling. I’m going to re do an old school bus to make it into a traveling home for me and my Basset Hound Lucy.

Much love!!!
