Closet Office / Recording Studio

Lifestyle

I am so excited! Let me tell you why. I am finally getting my desk back! I gave my husband my desk in exchange for the dining table (which he was using for a desk) a few years ago. It was a good trade I was tired of eating dinner on the couch and with 2 kids, we needed to teach them some sort of table manners. But now, I will be needing a place where I can work from home and also record music. For weeks of talking and discussing the location, challenges, sizing and all the things, we came to an agreement. My husband gets a stand up desk and I get my old desk back!

I will be placing the desk in our walk in closet mind you, it’s long and thin….so not ideal, but workable! I am considering painting white – it’s currently black… I want to brighten it up and jazz it up. Any tips? I’ll be using Chalk paint – I hear that’s the best! Here are the items I’m going to be buying or have already bought for my future Desk and Recording Studio.

Custom matching masks

Lifestyle

Back in September I been making matching masks for my family for all outings in public. They are amazing! I made sure to make n large masks for the men, medium for the women and small for my the kids.

The best part was that when we were asked, “how many in your party?”. I told how many and then they looked at us and saw the end if the matching masks. It made it so easy to find each other in busy areas and makes for amazing group photos!

Masks for the Whole Family!

I sell them in my Etsy shop, take custom orders through DM in Instagram and Facebook, and have a agreement with Omnom Flower (a restaurant in download LA) to produce a minimum of 15 holiday themed masks each holding.

Head over to my Etsy Shop and Place an order!

The Start

Lifestyle

Coming soon! My first EVER EP – Music Album – will be released on May 28th! More info to come. My album will have songs about the Pandemic, about Starting, a Beautiful home, a sad goodbye and a maybe a few more!

Originally I was planning on releasing this album with the audio pulled from my YouTube Videos, but while planning everything for release – I started writing new songs and working really hard layering instruments and now my album will have all NEW songs! And I am honestly, really excited about it.

I have designed a number of Cover Art Options and I think I have narrowed it down to my favorite – but let me know what your favorite it:

So tell me: Which one would you like to see as my Album Cover?
