ARTS & CRAFTS: DIY Organizers

Being artsy means you have a lot of supplies

So here is a little fun DIY organizing projects to work on.

First go and collet jars, tin cans and containers. I have some mason jars, tin cans from beans and some plastic buckets from cotton candy.

Now lets choose some paint. I have some metallic gold spray paint and some craft paint I bought at Michael’s. Don’t forget your brushes to paint too!

It is time to get creative. Paint what you want on your items. Make them fit your style. I painted the tin can green and wrote what goes inside of it and for my mason jar I used the gold spray paint and sprayed the bottom on the inside as well as the bottom on the outside and let the excess paint drip down as it dried upside down. I also painted the cotton candy container fully gold as well and will probably add some ribbon later when it fully dries. 

If you want to go extra you can add stickers, glitter and any other embellishments you would like. I kept mine pretty basic to fit the style of my room.

Now add your supplies and your done!


I hope you enjoyed this fun little project. It was pretty easy but it is always a fun idea to add a little character to your art space.

TRAVEL: Universal Orlando

Everyone needs a nice long vacation once in a while. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a trip to universal Orlando Florida. I have never been and really wanted to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and be the Hufflepuff that I am. 
I recently posted a blog about traveling and the basic tips I have to being organized. It helped out a lot to prepare for this trip since we were going to be staying for 4 nights, 5 days. If you haven't read thatclick hereto check it out!
I have bad anxiety when it comes to transportation and flying is the worst but I was just so tired from the flight being so early, that it didn't really affect me. We flew with southwest out of our small local airport and it was a nice flight. We actually ended up landing early which was pretty cool. 

So we stayed at Cabana Bay, which is the hotel in the park. It has the coolest 60s retro theme that I just adore. Anything that is vintage I am all about. There was so much in this hotel alone to keep guests …

Cheap Kawaii Clothes

Finding cheap kawaii fashion
If you know my you know my style ranges from bohemian hippie to goth to pastel princes. I have always loved the pastel and kawaii fashion but sometimes it is hard to find those special pieces to really define your style. Sometimes the cheapest way to have these items (that actually fit right) is to make it yourself. I love sewing clothes but not everyone knows how to sew. So I am going to tell you what I do to collect the cutest clothes.
Thrifting - Thrifting is one of my favorite things to do when trying to find clothes that fit my style for a cheap price. I even found an entire cosplay in one visit because there are so many different pieces you can get and put together and alter. Some thrift stores like Goodwill will organize by color which is great if you want a specific color, but the sizes are not in order which can be frustrating. Thrift store like savers will organize by size so you can easily go to your size section and scan the pieces for your desir…

Creatively Maree Art Challenge

I have mentioned on a couple of posts that I was working on a challenge for myself to just get better at drawing things. I feel like being in the graphic design field I didn't get to do a lot of drawing. I know I need to improve on drawing hands and detail as well as proportion so this is why I am putting together this challenge. If you wish to join me on my little journey, I will be posting the weekly theme every Monday on my social media pages (Mainly Facebook) as each week is from Monday Morning to Sunday Night. When or if you post on social media you can use the hash tag #creatively53 to make it easy to find everyone and we can converse about our art. Rules: There really aren’t a lot of rules really.

You have to include the theme in your drawing or drawings in some way. You must do at least one drawing for the theme but you can do even more if you would like to. I understand that some people have work and school and it is hard to keep up with challenges, which is why I gave a week …
