Vegan, and art!

Hey peoples!

I wanted to share some vegan foods and art with you all this week!

 No worries smoothie fans, I still make a smoothie a day for lunch.

 I will still be sharing future smoothie recipes, in my book.

I just have to share these with you all!

 Starting with vegan pizza of course!

This pizza had mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and black olives from Papa Murphy’s.

Daiya Monterey Jack cheese and sausage from Lightlife was added before baking it. Eating vegan is not only a healthy but so delicious!!!

I hope that these vegan options will be given at pizza takeouts as they are absolutely amazing!!!

I seriously never thought that I would taste sausage again and have NO idea how Lightlife created these. I absolutely hope that more grocery chains will give the amazing options both Daiya foods, and Lightlife foods give!! They are a must for all!

The next vegan dish that I wanted to share is spaghetti with Lightlife veggie meatballs and follow your heart parmesan cheese! This is a must try as well and is absolutely wonderful.

Onto art!!!

Incase you missed my last post… I made this card that was Inspired by Shakespeare’s tale of Pyramus & Thisbe found in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

The card that I started to create this week may be just as meaningful.

Then again, it may not. Only time will tell.

 These things tend to create themselves in a way.

I have this so far though…

As far as twitch goes. I’ve decided not to go there anymore.

 There are many formats for live tv, twitch is only one of them.

Twitch is more for gamers, and I feel as if I’m taking away from that community more than adding to it.

I may change my mind, but at the moment I do believe that I should stick with blogging and take it a bit slower.

I’ll do live tv. again when I find another format that works for me and I feel comfortable with it.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that is in my future though.

I hope that you have a wonderful week!

Thanks for stopping by and hope that you stop by again.

Namaste,

Angela

Recycled Visual Art, Weather and Shakespeare!

Hey peoples!

I hope that you’re having a wonderful monday and have a great week.

In my last post, I shared this..

 

I am sure that you’re wondering about the answer.

Wonderful news!!! The answer is here on my first card!

 

I’ve been reading Asimov’s guide to Shakespeare, and was inspired by Shakespeare’s tale of Pyramus & Thisbe found in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

I added in the red crosses to say love will save this world by healing it.

 Hate will destroy it.

I think that is a perfect message because of what the story of Pyramus & Thisbe is.

I also added a P for Pyramus and a T for Thisbe.

Although, the story of Pyramus & Thisbe is a bit like Romeo and Juliet, it is not exactly the same.

Still, it’s about forbidden love, which is what Romeo and Juliet is about.

The characters also end up the same as Romeo and Juliet.

I will not write everything about it as to not spoil it for those who may not have read about it.

I found it very interesting though!

The weather is cooling down.

Finally almost time to decorate!

I may incorporate that into my works, I may not.

Only coming back to see what I post will let you know.

Unless you follow me elsewhere of course! Which thank you if you do.

You’ll also see me works on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/angelasartarea/

and I  also often post on twitter at  https://twitter.com/AngelasArtArea

I would absolutely welcome any new followers on any of my accounts!

My fan page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/AngelasArtArea/

I am not sure about twitch anymore as it is geared towards gamers. I love certain games, but no longer am drawn to them.

I also love my twitch friends, and don’t want to take away from something that helps them.

There are other platforms that are geared towards visual artists. I may try one of them as I do love creating and sharing live so that I can answer any questions, etc.

I have to admit that I’m glad a live audience doesn’t start out of nowhere.

I mentioned rehearsals before. They are going well. 🙂

I am used to being around live audiences.

I just no longer wish to continue being back-stage, as I truly believe there is much more to me.

The fact is also being live on the net is totally different then being live on-stage, live due to a exhibit or posting on a blog.

Being live is new to me, but I want to touch and help create awareness for as many people as possible.

If being live can do that, then being live is what I want to do.

I have not forgotten about ArtCardsUnited or my smoothies.

I’ll share them both in time.

Namaste,

Angela

Family history, stories, Irma and art!

Hey peoples!

There has been so much going on lately.

I do hope that everyone is doing well!

As many of you know Hurricane Irma came here to Georgia. Right when we were getting things back in order after the devastation Hurricane Matthew created too!

I decided to wait it out and went without water, and electricity for a few days.

As many of my followers probably guessed, I lost all food, so had absolutely no smoothies for days.

I was very blessed as it could have been so much worse!

There is believe it or not a beautiful feeling that I get when without power. It’s almost like a memory, which would make sense seeing as when I was younger there were no cell phones, etc.

I was actually talking about that the other day.

On the way here from Seattle, Wa. we drove.

 We being myself, my two brothers, my sister,  my parents, cat and dog.

There was no tv in our van to keep all four kids occupied.

Being the youngest of four kids, I remember very little of that trip. I do remember the trees though.

As soon as we got here that is the first thing that we noticed and the thing that I remember best!

The beautiful trees and the four of us sticking our heads out the window screaming “We’re SOUTHERRRRRNNNN!”

Many of those beautiful trees are gone now, taken by hurricanes.

Sadly trees were not the only things harmed by these hurricanes.

 In Fl. 20 people died due to Irma alone.

After Matthew, there were many without homes, etc. I was blessed then as well.

Above is a collage that I made showing it. A tree hit this house but did not damage my studio/apartment that much.

 Please note this was from Hurricane Matthew NOT Irma! Again, it did not touch my studio/apartment that much.

 I am still working on getting it repaired, as it did crack the ceiling and walls.

My smoothies have been put on hold for the moment.

 No worries people!

I am slowly trying to get back to them.

As for my book, I’m not 100% sure as this completely changed things, but we shall see.

I was also working on a fundraiser for a church next month. That is still underway, as rehearsals are set, etc.

I’m unsure if I can share photos with you all, etc. as I know little about it. I’m sure that I’ll find out in time though and will share if I am able to!

As many of you know Sept. 22nd is the anniversary of my ancestors passing of which I post in memory of her each year.

I’m also trying to get back into creating cards as seen here!

To find out what I will make on them please keep a eye out.

I will be posting that on my blog, instagram, twitter, and my fan page.

Namaste,

Angela

Time, smoothie, twitch!

Hey peoples! I hope that you have a wonderful week.

As many of you know my situation is a tad different. That being so, past events put me in a state of shock.

The lives that I saw it affecting extremely bothered me and the memories it brought back for not just myself but others.

My parents neighbor, Mr. Wingard, recently passed away.

The Wingards have been there for 32years and they have helped my family out in times of great need.

I will forever be grateful for that and will miss Mr. Wingard.

Although I no longer live with my parents I am staying there at the moment.

I often questioned that in the past.

Was I simply being a burden?

Even knowing that I work each day to try and help did not seem to make this question go away.

Walking to my studio one day in order to do my daily works, I ran into Mr. and Mrs. Wingard. I gave both of them a hug, he seemed fine and the next day he was gone.

This is in memory of him because he helped my family when we had a fire years ago.

I know how fast life can be lost. I’ve honestly lived knowing that for years, but that’s knowing that I could lose my life.  It’s different watching someone who I care about lose theirs.

 I can only imagine how his close family must feel! I can say honestly that my heart is with each and every one of them.

I will also miss seeing Jody everyday on WTOC as I miss Jim and Nick.

 Some know her as Jody Chapin but I honest to God know her as one of the amazing people I grew up around.

This is why I often use first names of people. Not to disrespect them, but to respect them. To me, they are much more than their names!
I truly wish that I could turn back time.
I know that’s not possible though.
I can take lemons and make wonderful lemonade with the fact that time has gone by though.
I am truly blessed because due to that, even with hard times in life putting on a smile anyway helped me through them.
May everyone remember that although things may get hard in life, we can always take those lemons and make lemonade.
All that we need to do is remember the good things. Thank you to those who have helped me to do that!
When you do that, you truly win!

2 Cups Lemonade
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp flaxseeds
2 tsp blueberry tea mix
1 orange
1/2 cucumber
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp Coconut extract
1 Cup Mango (frozen)

Blend and drink for a yummy treat or like me a meal replacement.

I’ve been working on sketching and some cards lately. You can see them by watching the replay’s at:

www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

You can also visit me LIVE! I’m on Wed. and Fri. from 12-6!

I also wanted to share some pencils that I sharpened myself. Those who follow me probably know how much I LOVE to share things! Sharpening pencils on your own instead of using a pencil sharpener is probably such a small thing to some but gives a completely different feel to me then using a pencil sharpener.

If you are on discord feel free to come check out mine as well at https://discord.gg/QB9mkT

Please note that I am not able to be as active on discord as other places.

I will comment back to you as soon as possible though.

Until next time.

Have a great one and I will see you next week!

Namaste,

Angela

Smoothie, Marie Forleo and Van Gogh

Can you believe that it’s Monday already!? I can’t!

Time really goes by fast doesn’t it!?

Here is a smoothie that I made to help you stay cool during these hot days!

2 Cups Almond Milk
1/2 cucumber
1 cup kale
3 Medjool dates
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp flaxseeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp blueberry tea mix
2 bananas (frozen)
1 cup Mango (frozen)

Blend and drink for a yummy treat or like me a meal replacement.

I have yet another piece with Gregg Shorthand in it to share!

This piece has the words Unseemly and imperfection in it.

My message is one that I am still learning. I in no way believe that I know everything.

I love creating art as I often don’t know what it will turn out to be. If you follow me, and watch my creative process, you will see that is often the case.

What this piece reminded me of was that often what may present itself in an unseemly manner may seem imperfect to some, yet it may be absolutely perfect to others.

Truly taking the IM out of imperfection and creating perfection.

To find this perfection takes trust and there lay a very huge issue for some, can they trust what their insides tell them or will they forever question it always looking for that perfection?

Speaking of perfection, this makes me think of posting a sketch that I did.

I posted about it in my last post, but just in case you are not following me here it is!

Without ink: With ink:

To learn more about Marie Forleo go to: https://marieforleobschool.com/

I had a talk about Vincent Van Gogh and todays world on my facebook page that was rather interesting to me. That being so, I made a video talking about it. I didn’t go on and on about all of the things I would like to because I was so ill. I am still recovering yet again. Here we go though.

You can see the video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BWQXobQjpjjgjib7oWehr-63hP_1v0IPln7QDw0/?taken-by=angelasartarea

Someone mentioned Van Gogh’s shaky handwriting, etc. and I DO have to ask people to think here.

Think hard because can YOU write a straight line when you are ill?

When you have an awful headache and the flu can you still write perfectly?

I’m assuming that you can’t and that being so isn’t it possible that Van Gogh wasn’t mentally ill, but I don’t know epileptic?

He may have had a seizure and was suffering from the side effects from it. Just as you suffer when you have the flu, etc.

Isn’t it possible that those in that society were afraid of what they did not understand and took matters into their own hands?

Nobody could know unless actually there during that time.

History also often repeats itself, but still isn’t that a possibility? Why rule it out just because of the word Epilepsy? Are people still that scared of it?

That being so am I meant to be scared of the truth too and hide my invisible disabilities?

They do not make all of me, but they are a part of who I am and I’ll be damned if I ignore a part of who I am.

If that means that I’m mentally ill, then so freakin’ be it, because I will not hide who I am. Besides there are understanding, kind souls as well who will believe in me and who will believe in you.

I am proud of who I am, anyone who is not proud of who I am is not good for me as I will not hide. I don’t believe anyone should.

I do not believe epilepsy is a mental illness but a neurological condition now known as a disease that causes seizures.

It was actually recently put in the category of a disease. I think that it’s about time honestly.

I’m not going to argue with people who believe that they are right. Epilepsy has been scientifically proven to be a Neurological issue in the brain.

Seizures may create depression…etc. That doesn’t have to do with the seizures themselves though.

 You can choose how you react to having even seizures. It’s harder to react in a positive and helpful way when living in a harder situation. It is not impossible mind you, but harder.

Van Gogh lived in a time where it would be harder to deal with such things.

Falling down convulsing having absolutely no physical control over your body is not a mental illness and should not be treated as one. A person can die from epilepsy just like the many other diseases that are well known.

 Why is that very rarely noted? Not that it should be talked about constantly, but this is why I can personally relate to many who have different illnesses.

When I fall down and beat myself up during a seizure it’s not all in my head. That is a physical illness, it doesn’t mean that I have seizures constantly and am unable to live my life as others live theirs.  It means that those who assume that are discriminating against me and those who do not give me the same opportunities as others are also discriminating against me.

I have a life to live people, why not let me live it?

 I can be happy…I can be full of joy, etc. I just know from personal experience that this earth is a gift and a blessing.

I am not going to say that getting ill doesn’t create harder times. That it doesn’t make it hard to understand things, harder to get out of bed, etc. on certain days.

It does not mean that I can’t do anything though. It does not mean that I don’t know how to have a conversation with someone.

 That I can’t sit down just like everyone else.

It also does not mean that you can touch me and get Epilepsy. You don’t get it from drinking after me, etc. either. Geesh!

How is anyone supposed to learn how to talk with others if never given the opportunity due to judgment based on fear?

They won’t learn how to communicate with others if hidden away.

That reminds me of Emily Dickinson and how her family kept her hidden away for years.

What wonderful things were kept from the world and all due to fear.

That’s a different topic, although I do believe that there is debate over her being epileptic as well.

It was in her family and she did take medication.

I try not to talk about my conditions all the time as I am much more then what is on the outside. I believe everyone is. You can’t tell the this much in my latest posts, but I do believe everyone is much more.

This is what I think those who crush others dreams can do.

Please do me this one favour. Believe in yourself and know that you are much more then others could ever dream of and they can go fuck a doodle doo if they don’t see that.

Thank you to those who have helped me to see that I shouldn’t give up on my dreams. That I am a human being worthy of care just like every human being is.

 As see here I can create advertisements rather well.

If given what is needed to create those advertisements with.

That being so I do believe that any art community anywhere I lived would be lucky to have me as I could advertise up the ass for them, which would only gain people clients.

I may be epileptic but I sure as heck can do that. You can also see all of my art history, etc. on linkedin at https://www.linkedin.com/in/angelasartarea/

Please also feel free to stop by to see the making of my works or to visit me live go to:

www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

Wed. & Fri.

12-5

If you are on discord feel free to come check out mine as well at https://discord.gg/QB9mkT

Have a great one and I will see you next week!

4th of July, Marie Forleo, and ArtCardsUnited!

Happy Monday!

I hope that everyday has been a beautiful dream come true for you.

I sound just like a Hallmark card or something but I absolutely mean it.

If you’ve been keeping track of what has been happening with me, I’m sure you’ve read that I have been recovering.

Recovering from what?

A seizure of course, but due to the healing properties found in Cannabis Oil, I am recovering well.

If Medical Marijuana were legal in all forms here I would be the first to take it. It honestly breaks my heart knowing that this medication is being kept from patients like myself.

What right does anyone have in doing that? The chance at living healthier and happier lives has been taken from us. How is that right?

Do those who wish for us to live in a place that does not give every medical option available today truly want us to live?

If doctors truly went to medical school to give patients every option that may save their lives, why aren’t all doctors working to give us that freedom? That is their job!

 

Why aren’t those who give directions to doctors giving them the right to prescribe medications like this easily?

Smoothies help as well, yes you heard me right! Smoothies help a great deal!

No worries my friends!

The show must go on, so I will be posting this week and absolutely happy due to it.

I have some wonderful things to share.

 One is a smoothie that I made!

This is a fast one, but everyone wants that on the go glow that comes from energy!

What better way to get energy but from a daily smoothie!

2 Cups Almond Milk
1 cucumber
1 Apple
2 Cups grapes
1 tsp blueberry tea mix

Blend and drink for a yummy treat or like me a meal replacement.

I did not tell you all what the words in the works that I showed in my last post featuring Gregg Shorthand were. I wanted to see if someone guessed them.

The first word is savable.

The second word is positive and the third word is prospective.

I featured two works though, so will show the other one next week!

In my last post I mentioned that I was going to make a sketch from a photo Marie Forleo posted of a flower. Here it is!

I haven’t decided if I am going to leave it as is or ink it. We shall see what the future holds.

To learn more about Marie Forleo go to: https://marieforleobschool.com/

Those who have been following my work may know that I create ACEOs and work with others to give opportunities to ACEO artists.

One is Gioia Albano who has been helping me to keep up with ArtCardsUnited.

You can read more about her at: www.albanogioia.com

As a thank you I made this long ago..

It features both of our works. They are both 2.5” X 3.5”

The one showing the faceless female and peace is hers and the one with the medical marijuana and peace in it is mine.

I believe in creating awareness of strong females, the health benefits of medical marijuana, and working on climate change will help this world find peace.

 Why do I say work on Climate change and not stopping it or ending it?

I believe that we can live for today and we can make this a better world.

I DO believe that is possible. That the people believing in themselves is possible.

That is needed now, nature is begging for it.

I do not believe that we can magically change history though.

I believe that we can believe in ourselves.

I also believe in science though and  that we can find a middle so that we can live for today.

In my eyes, it is time to do just that.

I believe that we can stand up in many different ways.

I choose to do so with art.

Why?

Because art isn’t as pushy.

I am not scared to be in a rally or to march.

The fact is some get rude, etc. and that often turns people who would otherwise help away.  This world doesn’t need that, in my eyes it needs every living soul willing to help another.

At the same time it desperately needs people to believe in themselves to that extent. The people need to know that their voices matter. Their voices created every single seat that is in politics today. They need to remember that.

Those who wish to create something based on a belief, etc. can do so in art.

Sometimes people need a place away from the harmful things going on in the world today and that too can be found in art.

Art saves like that and that is why I truly love it.

 Some people wish to look away from what is going on today.

 The thing that I would ask them is what will looking away from an issue do for it?

If that issue gets worse due to your looking away from it and not helping what will that do for you?

Will that help you or are we all actually one in the bigger picture, making looking away actually harmful to you?

I personally believe we are all one and all matter.

In my eyes people have abused this planet and there is no taking that back.

 This planet belongs to all of us and it is our responsibility to help it in order to make our lives better and help future generations.

  Either way, I do not wish to make this all about my personal beliefs because that is pushing them on others.

I wish to keep this mainly about art.I don’t know if I will be able to do that, but I sure as heck will try!

That being so please feel free to stop by to see the making of my works or to visit me live go to:

www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

Wed. & Fri.

12-5

If you are on discord feel free to come check out mine as well at https://discord.gg/QB9mkT

Smoothies, Gregg Shorthand and ArtCardsUnited!

Happy Monday peoples!

I hope that you have a great week.

I have a few things to share with you this week!

It’s really been hot lately but here comes the sun, so I’m really not surprised. Still, do you need something to cool yourself off!?!?

If so why not try a smoothie!

Here’s one just for that! YUM!

Ingredients donated by Les Taylor

2 Cups Lemonade
2 mandarin oranges
1/2 cucumber
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp blueberry tea mix
2 tsp Coconut oil
2 Cups Kale
2 Cups Mixed fruit (frozen)

 

Blend and enjoy!

I also wanted to share with you all what I’ve made while on twitch this week!

I made a sketch of Claire who I featured in my last post as well.

 

As some who have been following me may know, I am not a portrait artist.

Still I wanted to try this. I am not sure if I will ink it or just leave it as is. What are your thoughts? Let me know here or private message me. I appreciate all comments and will get back to you as soon as possible.

This week I’m going to TRY sketching a photo that Marie Forleo posted of a flower!

Keep your eyes open for that one! I’m sure that those who follow me know how much I adore Marie Forleo!

That being so I follow her on Instagram and commented asking if I could sketch a picture she posted.

 I didn’t expect a answer!

Still, I got one!!! How awesome is that!!!? It totally blew me away.

To learn more about Marie Forleo go to: https://marieforleobschool.com/

To see Claires works go to:

https://www.twitch.tv/claireabelle

Feel free to make any suggestions as well.

I am not one to believe that I know everything and would love any help in this area.

Some who have been following me may know that I’ve also been working on ACEOs!

  ACEOs or Art, Cards, Edition and Originals are 2.5″ X 3.5″

I’ve decided to go back to calling my cards ACEOs as ArtCards implies different sizes, etc. Although I absolutely don’t mind different sizes. I own ArtCardsUnited, which has one rule, that rule is size. I can’t use the term artcard if it will imply that we don’t have that rule. I don’t want anyone to get confused by my actions.

It’s very important to me that everyone know ArtCardsUnited does not judge based on who sells, who trades, religions, sexual orientations, race, or disability. If you wish to learn more about ArtCardsUnited visit: https://artcardsunited.com/

     If you have any suggestions for ArtCardsUnited please contact me at acu@angelasartarea.com

Here are a couple banners that I made based on them.

Please feel free to let me know what you think!

They also feature Gregg Shorthand leave me a message here or privately to guess what they may say!

Keep a eye out!

I will be posting the answers in my next post.

Here we go though…

Hints: This has three words. All three can be found in the writing above.

Here is the other one.

I actually thought that I had written a different word in this one.

Still, the actual word fit perfectly, so I left it as is.

Hint: This one is two words and can be found in this writing.

Both are on recycled paper and 2.5” X 3.5”

Father’s Day, Story, and sketches!

Hey peoples!

Time really goes by fast doesn’t it!?

When I was younger it did not go by fast enough.

Times certainly change though as now time seems to fly by!

That brings me to this weeks smoothie!

Why you ask?

Well, when I was younger my mothers friend Karen Calkins made me things to wear.

In the 1980’s, the strawberry shortcake line became huge!

 Strawberry Shortcake was done in 1979 by Muriel Fahrion during her time as a greeting card illustrator.

Karen made me a strawberry shortcake outfit because I loved it so much!

I think of Karen now everytime I see strawberries, so I wanted to make a smoothie to say thanks.

Karen’s strawberry delight

2 Cups Almond Milk
2 Cups strawberries (frozen)
2 tsp blueberry tea mix (blood sugar maintenance)
3 Medjool dates
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp chia seeds
1 Cup Spinach

As I’m sure you know if you’ve been following me. I absolutely love to share other artist’s work and add to the artworld!

I’ve been astounded by a young artist named Claire.

Claire’s latest project is sketching eyes! Send her a picture of your eyes and she’ll sketch one.

I did just that and she made this…

Which I truly believe is astounding!

I do sketch people sometimes. My latest sketch just for fun is shown here.

 

I was working on shading, but am nowhere as good as Claire!

Just look at that eye! You can tell that it’s my eye and it’s just one eye!

Anyway, send in your eye if you would like her to sketch it for you. Her contact info. can be found at: www.twitch.tv/claireabelle

If you’ve been keeping an eye on my channels, etc. You have probably seen the making of many other works. That sketch was one of course. I couldn’t add them all here though or this post would never end!

Here is a collage of what I’m working on at the moment.

 Please note that these are unfinished.

Both on recycled paper and 2.5” X 3.5”

Tonys, Smoothies and Visual art!

Hey peoples!

WOW!

I can’t believe that a week went by so fast!

I made myself stream and it helped to make me feel better!

This is a collage of the artcards that I made!

I had to share with you all.

I was inspired to add green into my works by a friend of mine,Labhra Blaith.

What a talented young lady! She mainly works in watercolour. You can visit her channel and learn more at:

https://www.twitch.tv/labhrablaith

The card with faces on it was inspired by the wonderful artwork on Katy Perry’s new album Witness.

You can see the making of these by watching the replay at:

I don’t know about you but I watched the Tony Awards 2017 and absolutely loved it.

I loved that some spoke about off Broadway musicals and those who stand up for what is right because we all matter.

Although, I absolutely love art, I can’t skip my smoothie.

I could honestly go on and on about the Tony’s!

I love sharing my smoothies with you all though.

My smoothie this week is Orange Booster

4 Mandarin oranges

4 tsp Coconut Oil

2 tsp blueberry tea mix (blood sugar maintenance)

1 tsp Cacao Powder

1 tsp Chia Seeds

1 tsp Sesame Seeds

1 tsp Raw Cane Sugar

1 Apple

2 bananas (frozen)

I also wanted to share Kayla  Marianna’s work with you all.

Kayla is yet another talented young lady who I found on twitch.

You can see more of her works at:

https://www.instagram.com/marianna.art96/

I challenged her to create a character and she did so, then named it after me!

I’ve never had my hair like that, even when it was long, but other than that she did rather well.

I have to admit that if a character were to be more like me; it would have short hair with extra eyes or something. Tim Burton style but I have always loved Disney too.

What a honour to have a character named after you!!

Thank you again Kayla!

I hope that you all have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by my blog.

Please remember I will be on twitch live at www.twitch.tv/angelasartarea

Wed. and Fri. from 12-5

New times I know!

I always stay on late though, so I figured why not change the times?

Namaste,

Angela
