Blank canvas.

Happy new year, friends! 2020 is a blank canvas. Let’s throw all the paint on it we can!

Here are the classes I have scheduled so far (with more coming soon). There will be plenty of opportunities to create something beautiful… Try something new… Be brave… Get weird…. Let go.

I hope you’ll join me.

As you can see, I still have a lot of flexible dates in the weeks ahead. If you’d like to host your own private event, fundraiser, or arrange a private lesson, I’d be happy to discuss those options with you!

And don’t forget, there’s always the WINTER FIREPLACE GETAWAYS promotion I mentioned in last month’s update. In case you missed it, the offer begins TOMORROW, Jan 1st & runs until the end of March. Gather your group of 8 to 20 people, reserve your stay at a beautiful participating lodge, then choose an experience activity FREE OF CHARGE! (One of those options is a paint class with ME…. hint, hint! wink, wink! nudge, nudge!) Click **HERE** for more information!

And don’t forget to mark your calendars for “Real it In” & “Hippie Sunday School” Podcast’s No-K 2020! All proceeds will benefit A.C.T.! Purchase your tickets **HERE**

Sooooo, I’m not much of a “new year, new me” kinda gal. I don’t typically make resolutions or drastic changes. I consider myself a year-round work-in-progress (to say the least!), cautiously optimistic for the possibilities ahead. Striving to be a little more brave, a little more light, a little more healthy in the new year.

One of those brave baby steps will be an attempt to conquer my fear of social media. Ugh. A necessary evil in this line of work, sadly. So I’ve created a Bluebird Designs Instagram account. (BluebirdDesignsByBex). At the time of this post, I haven’t even created any content yet, but the profile exists at least! So if you use that platform, keep an eye out for me…. maybe give me a “like” or a follow or a hashbrown or whatever you whipper snappers do with those gadgets of yours these days. Feeling way too old for this stuff.

And while I’m feeling pathetic & OLD…. how about THIS?! My 1st born, Zane Douglas, is SEVENTEEN today.

Even though he towers over me, he’ll always be my baby. His request was to celebrate at home. A day of board games, video games & YouTube in his pj’s. That’s my boy.

It’s been quite lovely having both of  my guys around for winter break. I’ve taken a little time off myself to enjoy their company, paint what I want to paint, & recuperate from my crazy Christmas rush. I was able to meet all of my holiday deadlines, but it was a photo finish! Whew! Here are a few of them. If you gave or were gifted a Bluebird original this season, I’d love to hear how they went over!

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope you know how truly grateful I am for all of my supporters. Whether you’ve taken a class, bought my art, shared a post, or simply encouraged from afar… I appreciate it. Every little bit helps.

I love my job & feel so fortunate for the opportunity to keep at it. Ready to see what 2020 has in store! Wishing you a happy, inspired, safe, & healthy year ahead! I’d love to help you decorate it!
