I live in a 424 square foot condo and don't really have use for the storage spaces that came with the condo.  Even the pantry is of no use to me.  I live a zero waster lifestyle, which means that don't buy food that is packed.  In plastic or cans I just don't buy them.  This means I had a nice size pantry to do something with and since I have two cat I thought, hey what about a cat room.

As you may or may not know I have been writing a book about 50 California native plants for years.  Something that I was working on from time to time.  Well I decided a few months ago that I needed to either get serious with it or not.  I can't keep putting it off and putting it off and not doing anything with it.  It deserves to live.  Hah! 

That is why I have set myself a goal to have the book completely finished before 2019.  Not published by 2019, but ready for self publishing.  This way I can spend the first few months of next year actually getting it set up on Amazon for your reading pleasure. 

This image is the current cover of the book.  It may change but for now I like it.

I love to watercolor!  As a past time and something to do for fun.  What I love most is being creative in a way that is not just about designing landscapes.  Having said that it has been somewhat hard to create in my new home that I have lived in for 2.5 years as it is literally half the size of my old home.  This means that I don't have time for a proper in home studio.  But this has not stopped me from creating art.  Something I have been doing a lot of lately and to make things even more interesting, I have been asked by several people if I sell my art.  Well, I didn't but I do now.  Sort of.  I am in process of opening an Etsy shop where I will sell prints of my work. 

My goal for this week is to setup my Etsy shop and have all my ducks in a row.  I am excited as this will be something I have never done before.  But it will be fun and worth the adventure.  I will update you on my shop once it is done and ready.  I will also be posting weekly about my art on this space to hopefully inspire you to get creative.
