A D.C. Travel Guide for People Who Love Art

Thanks to my combined knowledge of travel and my own city, I think I do a pretty good job of showing people around this place. There’s a lot to see, and sadly I think most visitors never step foot beyond Capitol Hill and the National Mall, so they really only get a sense of the

Game of Chance in Nail Art

Summer time means a lot of road trips for my family, and that means a lot of time eating out. While we wait for our food to come we like to break out a pack of cards and play a quick round (sometimes three if it takes a while or we are moving quick!) of

The Hand of Destiny: Organic Tattoos

This Distance Between Us

I made a room divider.  The super cool amazing thing about this is that it is made with my favorite material: card board! It is 4′ tall and 1′ wide, and is layered in a cardboard core, a layer of cork on top, and burlap with a scrolling pattern in sky blue on top. The

I was off on a Zafari…

Wondering about the title? I just really love sticking ‘Z’ into everything now. It makes me feel like I`m following a theme or something! So, what`s up in Zville? I have been crafting five different posts for you today. That is why I did a double post yesterday, just to make sure I wasn`t leaving
