Blogging and Life Update

December 20, 2016 2 Comments

Hello you wonderful and loyal reader!

As you may already know, I took an unscheduled blog-cation in order to get through the semester a sane woman and mother. Because of this I have gotten very behind on so much of my online life! But I know that as a homeschooling mother and a full-time college student I had to put some things first, and sadly, writing a blog during that time wasn’t top priority. That being said, over the course of the next few weeks, holiday break, I will be getting things back in grove and preparing things for this next semester so that I do not fall behind again!

I am very excited to say that I got 3 “A”s and 1 “B” for my final grades this semester! The “B” is in math, and then I took Art History 1, Drawing 1, and English Composition 1. I am very happy with my final grades, I worked hard and did the best that I could and it paid off. This Spring semester I will be taking Art History 2, Art, Zen and Meaning, Yoga, Spinning, Painting 1 and Design 1.

There are 2 more classes than I took this fall, but 2 are fitness, 2 are art and then only 2 are “book/study” classes so, I am thinking that it will go a little smoother and I wont get my little butt handed to me on an academic platter.

As for what I am planning for this blog, my business and YouTube.

I mentioned a little while ago that I am having some design work done for my YouTube Channel, I thought that I would wait and revel it with a new video and design all at once, but it is taking a bit longer then expected so, I will be having a new video up every weekend, and maybe more, for you to watch. Drawing, tutorials, planning and maybe even some Vlogging!

There will be a regular blog posting again, every Monday and Wednesday, and I have tons of new ideas! Including some fun “how-to”s for being a college student! And for all of my loyal subscribers, I have promised a free printable section just for you here on PTL, I am making that happen as you read this! I will send out a mini Newsletter including a secret password that will allow you access to ALL of my art printables (psssst…. This includes the printables that I am making available in my Etsy shop- ARTofficial Happiness!) so, make sure you are all signed up for that!

Also, if you are a member of the Hadhr Book Club, the lady that does the lists has sent me the book list for December/ January and that will be up and ready tomorrow!

As far as my Etsy shop goes, I will be staying open through the holidays, and I will be discounting everything in my shop for them! There will be new items live this weekend as well, which is when there will be a store wide discount! So stay tuned in to the ARTofficial Happiness Instagram for updates!

I want to send out a wonderful thank you for the love that has been shown to me these last few weeks, and this entire wonderful year! Thank you for your continued support and love!

    Way to go on your grades! I went back to school in my forties with four busy children and a household to take care of – no homeschooling though, we had already put our children back in public school. I worked hard and graduated with great grades. It can be done and you are off to a great start. Keep going.

      Thank you so much for your inspiration and motivation! I know how tough one semester and 3 kids can be, so that is amazing! Good on you and thank you again!
