    I just painted these flowers on my new craft room's walls. Pinterest and tons of youtube vids helped me accomplish this.

    That's very cool, for real! One of these days I'm going to make my own root beer from scratch. It's on my list.
    That's the first brew I ever made. Earlier this summer I think. I've made some better looking ones, but they haven't all turned out all that great. Most of them, but not all.

    Wow, love it! I need to do some stuff for my office. Maybe involving photos. I'm probably not much of a painter.

    I love those too. I don't really have a craft room; my stuff is mostly in my pantry/laundry room, but usually I don't have room to actually work in there. Someday ...

    Very pretty Shasta. And Nate, my son would love to try to brew beer, is it hard to do for the home brewer?

    Those are pretty! I think flowers aren't as easy to draw or paint as one might think.

    I didn't think I was either and I started on a kind of dare. But it turns out I like what I do, people like what I do, and I love it. I recommend giving it a shot once.

    I've enjoyed making drawings and paintings based on photos. Once I have a photo I want to reproduce in my own way I start by pencil-drawing a copy of the image onto canvas, for painting, or paper, for coloring pencils. I find choosing and working with color generally easy, especially using water-based acrylics and coloring pencils, two mediums I find easy to control. Of course, practice leads to improvement. You never know til you try.
