Visit an art museum — check ✅ | Reblog

A/N: Here is a quick reblog of the post where me and Goodmommy visited an art museum. I feel like this great post was super underrated, so I decided to post it again to give some more of you an opportunity to see the fun that me and Goodmommy had during my last spring break. Enjoy!

In my house, we’ve stayed home for pretty much the whole week. Most of you, my current followers, already know that I’m a homebody, so that really didn’t bother me; so far, my spring break had been going awesome. 

But this day in particular, Goodmommy was not having it; early this morning, she woke me up and mentioned the idea of going to an art museum. Recently, I had brought up the idea of going to one, since I’m an art lover. Therefore, we both agreed that it would be a great idea for us to check out some art to get out of the house and have some mother-daughter bonding time.

If I couldn’t think of any other good reason to visit a museum–and trust me, I have plenty–one reason would be that most of the time, they provide so many opportunities to take beautiful pictures. Me and Goodmommy had so much fun taking a look at the water view and the tall buildings of downtown. The museum was in an entire center that included parks, restaurants, and even art organizations for kids. They’re was so much to do, which made the visit even more enjoyable.

Art museums tend to be giant, and the one that we visited was just another example. The pretty glass windows and doors looked beautiful, both outside an inside. Just by the front desk was a cute bakery and small jewelry shop. On the second level, where the galleries are located, you can even go outside on this deck area to see everything from a higher view. Cool, right?

What I really love about museums is that they’re kind of like a quick History lesson. But instead of learning the history through textbooks, you get to see the history through the story that the artists tell through their work, as well as the credited descriptions explaining the history of the work and creators.

Diversity is another beautiful element of art. Art comes in many shapes, scales, and colors, just like we do as people. This one gallery called Verde: Poetics of Shade was actually created by 5 different black woman, representing the diversity of a community and the people in it.

Although many people probably don’t realize it, a museum is a lot like a library. It’s very quiet, promote learning about the places we call home, and help preserve the history of past and present generations. 

This next one particularly caught Goodmommy’s attention. We both noticed that a lot of the artists behind many of the galleries were African-American, Greek, Egyptian, or Roman. It’s amazing how many cultures, mediums, and art styles can be combined to make one museum filled with creativity. Even though each piece is unique, they all come together to fill the walls of the museum.

After the short and sweet visit to the museum, we decided to go and get a bite to eat. We both ordered this really yummy sandwich with turkey, sauerkraut, cheese, pickles and more. A few months ago, we got the same sandwich without some of the ingredients…and we realized that it tastes soooo much better with everything on it. They give you pretty good servings. Me and Goodmommy ate 2 out of 4 pieces of our sandwiches at the restaurant, and we saved the other half for later. 

P.S., this whole thing is actually one sandwich. Goodmommy got one sandwich each for both of us. They definitely give you your money’s worth of food! 

After our main course, we both split a large slice of lemon cake–that was delicious, too. The whole meal was a 10/10. Now, we definitely know one of the best places to visit the next time we want to go out to eat.

Overall, we both had tons of fun today. I thank God that we were able to spend some quality time together outside of the house. Even though we don’t do so often, when we do, it makes me really appreciate my time with Goodmommy, and my entire family, even more.

I painted on three wooden letters… ♡

A little less than two months ago, I showed you guys these three plain, wooden letters. I decided to get a Q and a T to stand for me and Goodmommy’s initials, as well as an & sign to go in the middle. Automatically, I saw the opportunity to make them my own with a little something called acrylic paint.

I asked Goodmommy what colors she wanted me to incorporate into my design. She replied pink and purple, which I was really happy with since they go with the colors of the spring season. I also decided to mix a yellow, scarlet, plain white (and eventually green) paint to give the whole thing an Easter vibe.

And of course, I had to take this opportunity to use one of my brand new paint pallets for the first time. As I expected, it was much easier to keep my paints from mixing. Plus, the look is really aesthetic–perfect for photographs.

I looked up some simple designs to paint on wooden letters, and I eventually found this video of these different flower designs. While I love the overall format, I changed the design by adding a plain white background to really make the colors pop. On top of that, I added some other intricate details to increase the visual interest.

The different shape of each letter (as well as the small size of each) made this project much more of a challenge. I honestly expected the paint job to be extremely minimalistic and bare, but I was actually able to incorporate many more tiny touches than I anticipated.

Overall, I am super satisfied with the finished product! The Q and the T are so vibrant, and the bold color of the & in the center is a great accent piece that pulls everything together. Goodmommy really loved it as well.

What I really loved about this project is that it helped me to do something out of the box. I had to figure out which design would look best on each letter, especially on such a small scale. The color scheme really flourishes with the spring-y vibe that I was going for. I’m excited for my next project!

LET’S CHAT~ Have you ever painted on wood? If so, did you like it?

Happy (Early) Easter, everybody! Don’t forget to remember the reason for the holiday–Jesus’ sacrifice of love, which we all ought to be thankful for! See you later! ✨

I painted my own ceramic room decor … Pt. 2 ♡

Hey, everybody! So, some of you have probably seen my finished product of this adorable ceramic room decoration that I found last week. If not, I would recommend that you click this link to get the full story of how I found these, in the first place.

Just as a bit of a refresher, here is a picture of the two kits that I have used in this two-part series. Last time, I did the one of the right, therefore I’m going to be showing you guys what I did with the one on the left for this new short and sweet post.

At first glance, I was a little skeptical about the “diamond” shape of this decoration, just because it seemed like there wasn’t a lot of space to paint. But in the end, I actually really enjoyed that aspect of the piece. The more I looked at it, the more excited I got about rolling my sleeves up and painting it!

Just like the first kit, I used a surprisingly wide variety of colors to critique each of the paints in the kit. Though I must say that these had much better coverage than the paints from my last art project. The colors were just a bit dark, so I used colors slightly brighter than the original hues, as well as some white and/or cream to keep the neutral color scheme.

At some point, I had actually put some white polka dots on the light blue sections, but I didn’t like how it looked, so I covered them up with a few coats of paint. I might even add a few more, the next time I work with my acrylic paints for a bit of a touch up. However, for now, I’m really happy with what I’ve done. I think the color adjustments really paid off–they are popping!


Aaandd, that’s all for today, folks! I’ve really enjoyed customizing these decorations. Being able to really use my paints and experiment to see what looks best is such an enjoying and relaxing process. This is definitely not the last you’ll see of my art; I already have another idea, in mind.

Like always, if you enjoyed this post and want to read more of my daily content, please like this post and consider following my blog, if you haven’t already–all your support is a blessing!

Have a beautiful and blessed day! God bless y’all! ✨

For me, the first part of spring break is well over, and for the most part, we’ve stayed home for pretty much the whole week. Most of you, my current followers, already know that I’m a homebody, so that really didn’t bother me; so far, my spring break has been awesome.

Art supplies, wooden canvases, and painting my heart out | Art Haul

When we went out to complete some errands today, Goodmommy and I stopped at Walmart, and we ended up looking in the craft isle. As an art lover, I am constantly looking for more art supplies for new projects! We actually found some really nice new equipment and tools for our personal and work/school activities. Therefore, I’m going to show you guys what we got.

I guess you could call it an Art Haul. Let’s get this art party started!🎨

The first thing that we thought would be useful is this really cool glue gun. Since all we had previously was glue sticks and tape, this will definitely be useful for more technical projects. Some objects are harder to stick together then others, so it’s always a good idea to have one of these handy.

Next up are these cute wooden letters. Of course, I was elated to see that they had both me and Goodmommy’s first initials, as well as a little & sign to put in the middle. I am planning on painting these as decorations to go into our living room–I’m still brainstorming for some ideas! I’m sure that they will turn out great.

Depending on the amount of feedback from this post, I might show you all the finished product in their dedicated spot. Make sure to like this post (and comment) if you’d like to see the completed design.

Last but not least is this painting that I did for an art project. We were challenged to use only flexible materials (paper, leaves, tissue paper, yarn, etc.) to make a creation with at least one 3D element. I really love the use of colors, and the 3D parts create a lot of emphasis and make the bright hues pop. I decided to hang it up in my room, and it looks super cute!

And that’s all for today. I hope you all enjoyed seeing some of my new art supplies and my painting. Art has always been such a creative outlet for me, and it is a frequent part of my life. It makes me happy to be able to display my work for you all to observe.

Thank you so much for reading and I’ll “see” you all tomorrow! Have a beautiful and blessed day everyone! ✨
