Challenge: No New Art Supplies for 1 Year

Welcome! I'm JJ, and I write an artist lifestyle blog about living a creative life. Here, we explore eclectic home styling, DIY projects, and how to turn your art hobby into a successful side hustle. I share my favorite whole-food, plant-based recipes for one and show how to use fresh herbs in the home and for gifts. There is something for everyone, so let's go make your artsy dreams come alive!
