ALIEXPRESS STATIONARY HAUL

Last year – yes, last year – I bought some stationery items on Aliexpress with the intention of using some of it for my Fortune Teller Theme of January. This was my very first experience with Aliexpress and I must say, I was a bit disappointed with the slow shipping. I thought it would take a month to get my stamps, washi tape and other goodies.

How I store my art supplies, collection & organization

I have been hesitant to film this video, because my storage and organization for my art supplies is far from where I want it to be. I have to remind myself from time to time that not everything has to be Pinterest/Instagram perfect.

GIVEAWAY ★ HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRISTARTIST!

WHOOP WHOOP! Yes, TristArtist is 1 year old! On the 8th of January 2018 I started my own business. I never thought I would because I was scared of the unknown (I still am sometimes), but I am soooo glad that I did it! It had been quite a journey I must say. Figuring out Etsy, customer service, building a website and portfolio, figuring out how taxes work and how you write offers and invoices. As a perfectionist I always wanted to know what to do beforehand, but now I learn as I go. And to celebrate this all with…
