I have another guest post for you guys today. Sam from A Place I Call My Own. Sam is an amazing woman and I am so glad I met her through blogging. She is an amazing artist, a complete sweetheart and an overall awesome individual.
Hello friends and followers (and new readers) of Zara’s blog! I’m Sam from A Place I Call My Own.
Zara has become a good friend over the past few months so I am extremely flattered that she asked me to guest post on her blog. This is also my very first ever guest post, so go easy on me.
When asked to post, she told me I could write about anything I wanted. Where does one begin?! But after thinking and writing several blog drafts I’ve decided to write about different ways I like to zone out and escape.
Well for starters, I blog! My blog is my own little public diary. I write what I feel and what is on my mind. I’ve had this blog since 2007 as a place to showcase my art and classwork I was doing. It’s evolved into so much more than that. I love getting involved in meme’s. My favorite meme being Wee Bit Wednesday, hosted by Leigh Ashley.
Another way I like to zone out is to paint. My boyfriend recently purchased a new computer and a Cintiq. I took fine arts through high school and college, and painting had always been a favorite. When painting with acrylics I always seemed to get paint all over myself so this is an easy way to create something beautiful, without the mess.
A few years back I saw this beautiful dress on Victoria’s Secret website. The skirt was crocheted and while I was unemployed I couldn’t buy it. I decided to take up the task of crocheting. I found a pattern to a skirt and made it. Never finished the dress because I have no way of attaching the skirt to the tank top sadly.
Then this past winter I discovered grannie squares. I began my first blanket. I’ve even made cupcakes! Did you know you could also crochet jewelry?
I absolutely love how fast the hours go by when I get involved in these little projects.
Thank you so much Zara for having me over! You are an amazing gal and I’m so thankful to have met you in the blogging world.
Thank YOU Sam for being here today! Aren’t her paintings amazing?! Head over to A Place I Call My Own and get to know Sam a little better.
