Stand Back I am Not a Professional!





You know those video where they start by saying.. " Kids don't try this at home" ? I often feel like that when I post things here on the blog.

I get a fair number of questions about the projects I do .. both questions left here in the comments section and sent to my email and I try to answer them to the best of my ability with any knowledge that I have gleaned in my own experience.

This does not mean I am always right.. in fact sometimes I am so wrong that it is stunning given that I should know a least a bit about what I am talking about.  ( These sorts of mistake often remind me of the time the Mythbusters  shot a cannon ball through the home of a sleeping couple on accident- it could have been tragic but luckily no one was hurt)  These guys know their stuff and yet they made a mistake.. it happens!


But here is the deal.. I am all about trying new things, stepping out of my comfort zone to try new projects and then I share with you when they went right and when they went wrong. I speak from my experience and that is all I can give you. Well that and a smart-ass retelling of why you should never try to deep condition your cat or some other such big time fail on my part such as:

Fail 1 

Fail 2

Fail 3

I could go on but it is getting sort of embarrassing...

Oh, Maddie! You make me laugh more than you know! I am another one who is all about trying new things and stepping out of my box (all the time!) and then failing. I look at it as "growing" as an artist. ;-) We learn by our failures and then grow to become better (or as others would like to call us... "professionals").
