I wasn't sure how it would work out, but vlogging seems to be the key to helping me get over my usual holiday stress. Basically, knowing that I'm accountable to post a vlog and stop making excuses for not getting things done has helped me get my holidays cards done on December 7th - a good two weeks ahead of when I usually get them done!

Now that I've gotten one of my most procrastinated holiday tasks completed, I feel much less stress and a lot more excitement about the holidays!
How can this help you?
If you have a task that is constantly being pushed to the back burner, go ahead and find a way to tackle it ASAP. To help make sure you do it, enlist a friend or colleague (or film a vlog like I did) to help hold you accountable.
I found this tactic very helpful - let me know how it works for you!
I usually get so stressed over the holiday season, that I decided to distract myself this year by starting a vlog. I'm excited to share my ideas for being less stressed this year, and maybe get some recommendations from you!
Not sure how many or which paints you absolutely need at a minimum to get started oil painting?
Learn the answer here!
Like many self-taught artists, I didn’t have a clue where to begin when it came to oil painting supplies. My drawer full of never used pigments will attest to that! It can get so confusing figuring out where to get started without spending tons of money on things you’ll never use. I didn’t want to give up on the dream of painting in oils though, so it was worth figuring out. You could start with a very basic set of 3 primaries and a white, but that will take a lot more training on mixing colors, and I’m all about getting you started painting as quickly as possible
I've been creating Pin Up paintings for the past 9 years. Some have been more successful than others in terms of popularity, although I must say it seems that Pin Ups are like real people in that there is usually someone for every one!
Learning to Create Pin Ups takes Effort
Mastering my Pin Ups took a lot of trial and error, and at times, tears when things just didn't go right. What I did learn is that there are some key characteristics that make a Pin Up inviting and likeable, and I'm sharing them with you here.
