Two sets are available for sale in Sharifa Creates’ Studio. Each set is made up of three ornaments and they come in mint and hot pink. What makes them special is that no two ornaments look alike!

I’m a strong advocate for DIY-ing Christmas presents. This marks my fourth year in a row making gifts instead of buying them. I started DIY-ing gifts because I was tired of heading into congested malls only to not find anything worth giving to friends and family. I couldn’t even bear the wait for items I ordered online to be shipped to me. I had to take the initiative! Now I find unique YouTube and Pinterest tutorials for my favorite DIY projects, purchase a few items from the craft store, and create. It’s a peaceful process!

It’s been a long time coming, but I finally had the chance to write this blog post! At the end of July, I participated in the Black Girl Magic Art Show and Market at The Insomnia Gallery in Houston, Texas. This was my first art market since graduating from college. Today, I’m talking all about my experience.

God showed me that it was time to step outside of my comfort zone. I began praying for an opportunity to participate in an art show or market. It was a struggle for Continue reading “Black Girl Magic Art Market Recap”

At the beginning of May I took on a 21 Days 21 Paintings challenge on my Instagram account for Sharifa Creates Studio, @scstudioofficial.
