Y’all, I’ve been walking in the early mornings and I found a red UK phone booth in a yard in my neighborhood. Right here in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Isn’t that crazy? I painted it as part of trying to stretch my creative muscles in a new way for Candace’s Moment Sketchers project. So fun. I …

In The Pipeline: November

This month has been a doozy y’all. If you’re like me, maybe you just want to throw up your hands or crawl under the covers because everything is so overwhelming.
