Since I’ve been gone…

So, you may have noticed my abrupt and completely unexplained absence from my website. It’s time I explain a little about it. Last Christmas I decided to take a much needed break from creating tutorials. It was supposed to be 2 weeks. Then 2 turned into 3, then a month, then more. After a long talk with my (now) husband, I discovered that it was putting too much stress on me without the reward I was looking for. After three years of running I Heart Jenny’s Art, I felt like it wasn’t fulfilling or fun any longer. Commenters are rude, people stole my posts, and girls who simply took pictures of themselves in expensive clothing were getting more hits; all of which was heartbreaking after spending hours prepping a single sewing tutorial.

And on top of all of that, I was in the middle of planning a wedding, starting a new job, and trying to write a book. Yes, a book. And no, not a sewing book, but more on that later. Even though I have stopped posting, I haven’t stopped sewing or creating. Maybe one day I’ll get back to posting, but for now I’m focusing on making stuff for me and being happy.

So about that book… I have spent the last year and a half writing my debut novel Order of Earth. It is the first book in an Urban Fantasy trilogy (the Elements of Ink series) set in modern day Miami. It follows a 25 year old Onyx Bay on her journey through discovering her supernatural past and fighting for control over her own future. I would really love for you all to check it out and tell me what you think. It’s currently available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle versions. Enjoy and I’ll post again soon!

Preview

HI! I’m back (obviously since I posted Wednesday) from my August break. I wanted to give you all a preview of what’s coming up in the next month or so. Sorry for the photo quality. I usually take these photos on my cell phone and send them to Vlad when I complete a project.

Break Time

It’s August which means it’s vacation time for me. I try to take one month off every year from posting just to give myself a small break. So I’ll be back in September (I already have 2 tutorials ready to go!). So enjoy the summer everyone!

Surprise!

Well, I have some great news I want to share. Over the weekend Vlad and I went to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for a sort of Stay-Cation (since it’s only like an hour away). We had done it a couple times before so it is more or less a tradition of ours. After an awesome day at the National Aquarium, a smoothy, and a nap, we were getting ready to go out to dinner. As I was touching up my make up, Vlad called from the other room and told me he had another accessory for me. Long story short: it was a diamond ring! And we are engaged!!!

Hooray!

Also, I realized this morning, I’ve never posted a picture of Vlad on the site. So this is sort of a double reveal day. Here’s a picture from us at the end of the night on Saturday after enjoying some celebratory beverages

 

And here’s a better picture of the ring. He knew I wanted something simple (since the rest of my wardrobe can be a  bit loud), and he hit the nail on the head. It’s a beautiful round solitaire with a white gold band. Love it!
