Thanks for taking a minute to let me introduce myself.
Hi, I'm Yolanda. I am a family travel curator, household engineer, freelance photographer and artist, travel lover and closet introvert.
Hang out for awhile, I'll tell ya a little bit about myself.
Not too long after I graduated from college with my BFA (painting), I decided I would stay home with my littles. I created art at home and started a website to sell little pieces on the side. I began my art website in 2010, blogging about art occasionally and slowly to nothing because I grew tired of writing about just art. No one told me I could have a blog with a more than one focus! So now I find myself rebranding and fully excited to share more of myself with you. This blog is my space where I share my everyday adventures and our family travels ... and the occasional day to day stuff that I need to ramble on about.
After several attempts at blogging, fast forward to now. Not only do I still enjoy art, but I have spent a lot of time learning about photography too. So, I completely rebranded to the new point I am in my life and I am fully excited to share more of myself with you. This blog is my space where I share my everyday adventures and our family travels ... and the occasional day to day stuff that I need to ramble on about. I still get to enjoy my creative freedoms through the artwork of this site and all the photographs I take on our vacations. Awww, a story with a happy ending.

Mini Q & A
You asked...I answered
Do you create all the artwork on your site?
Yes! I am always sketching and taking photos and I love the opportunity to play with any media. All photographs are also my own.
What kinds of things are in your resource library?
The library is an assortment of printables, digital wallpaper, and hot deals on artwork.
I only send it out once or twice a month, just enough to catch you up on what is going on. I never spam your inbox. Promise.
What is the best way to see regular updates?
I call Instagram my mini blog. I always let you know when posts are out and what I am working on. Along with fun day to day stuff.
