The About Page
ABOUT THE BLOG:
Artsy Karma is an arts and crafts tutorial blog.
Here, I will share with you craft projects and art techniques.
My projects are most suitable for adults and usually incorporate several supplies and mediums. I love color and like to use as much as I can.
I make my tutorials using step by step photos. That way you'll be able to see how each step is done.
I try to create unique projects not found elsewhere.
There will be much more added to this site as I keep getting my craft on.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT:
I want to tell you how being creative has improved my life.
I was born with the creative gene. Some might believe that it's the symptom of my ADHD. Yes, I have ADHD. I would hardly say the uniqueness of my brain makes life easy, but it does make me an idea machine.
During my 20's, being a slave working retail - a thankless job - and also in my 30's, being a slave to my kids (just joking - I love it), creating art has been like a best friend.
I have this thing about wasting time and needing to have a purpose for the things I do. Making and creating gives me a purpose. Watching TV does not - not that tv is bad, but why not add to your sketchbook during the Cartoon Network that's always on at my house in the meantime?
And currently, I'm so excited at the prospect of making some income with all my "arting and crafting". I've started this blog and plan to start selling my creations too.
One of the best things that has happened to me in the past 4 years, is that life events led me to explore Buddhism. It was like life finally made sense to me. I found a temple that I loved. The temple was 2 hours away, but when our house and town got destroyed in California's Camp Fire, it gave us the opportunity to move to Sacramento, where our temple is.
And now - I'm creating different crafts and art pieces to sell at the temple with half the proceeds going back as donations. So this gives me a spiritual purpose doing what I love.
I can't wait to share my journey and craft projects with all of you. ❤️❤️❤️
My social media pages:
Below is a Sunday Service talk I gave at my temple on a Buddhist deity, Tara. In it, I describe the evacuation of my family and I when we tried to escape the forest fire that burned down our whole town. Please feel free to watch. I don't start talking till about 17 minutes in.
