Hydrangea Watercolor Video

Hope you enjoy watching my sped up version of a hydrangea watercolor painting.  Most of the supplies used in the video were found at Walmart or Joann’s.  When painting I look up pictures of the item I want to paint. It is very helpful to use it as a reference so I can stay focused on the topic at hand.

I’m looking forward to sharing more videos like the one above.  Thanks again for watching!

Simple Valentine Watercolor Painting

Using inexpensive watercolors, crayons and watercolor paper you can make a beautiful flower bouquet painting.  My 3 year old enjoyed painting over the wax crayons and seeing her painting come to life. Click on the link to watch my you-tube video  Simple Valentine Watercolor Painting

I am no professional painter, but I do enjoy painting and crafting whenever I get a chance. I have learned tips and tricks through personal practice, art classes, and glimpses of other you-tubers.  I’ve only gone over a few tips/tricks in the video for this simple watercolor painting craft.

Dreams for an Inspirational Business

What is the purpose of having a blog for a tearoom that I don’t own yet?  We all have hopes and dreams that we long to achieve.  Well, a family friendly tearoom with an adult special needs program is mine.

I have never owned my own business before; though I have run a school based coffee business (but that story is for another day – check my ‘about’ me page for more details).  Each day I’m learning new things about myself, tea, crafts, special needs and business planning.  Part of my dream includes trying all of these new learnings together.

My vision is simple: To use my passions and skills so that we may benefit from one another.  Then, when I do finally have my tearoom, I will be able to bring people together with each visit and encounter.  But what does that look like?  I would like to inspire others to join me in empowering those with disabilities, build compassion/character in each other, and encourage uniqueness all while satisfying your taste buds.

Community involvement is a huge part of the mission/vision of PeachPearPlum.  From the arts (music, crafts, stories, etc), working with schools to increase Service Learning opportunities, as well as increase knowledge and comfort around people with disabilities.

This blog is here to help me stay focused on my dream as well as entertain, guide and educate others.  My posts will range from tea decor, crafts and recipes, to special needs job skills and accommodations.

I look forward to trying new things, building on what I already know and receiving feedback/knowledge from my readers.  I invite you to learn and dream along with me.
