What Have I been Up to?



Hey all! I hope this winter finds everybody warm and cozy! I just thought that I aught to touch bases and tell everybody what I’ve been up to lately. 😉

Heathers Studio

I’ve been doing a lot of illustration art and posting it on my other blog at: heatherstinnett.wordpress.com. Please follow my other blog and see what else I’m up to!


On my other blog, I’ve been doing illustrations for a children’s book my sister and I wrote called, The Monster. It’s been a fun project, and I’m excited to be finding my style as a children’s book illustrator. I can’t wait to get it finished and show it to the world! Check out my other illustrations here:https://heatherstinnett.wordpress.com/


Just recently, I started getting into hand drawn animation. This is a gif I created using Clip Studio Paint. It’s  a great program! See my blog post about it here:https://heatherstinnett.wordpress.com/2016/12/11/my-first-animated-gif/

Thanks for keeping up with my projects! I hope to see you on both of my blogs. I just wanted to let y’all know that I’m still keeping busy, it’s just been on another blog. 😉


A Hero at Heart~ Christian Novel by Theresa Stinnett


My Sister’s novel, A Hero at Heart, is now available on Amazon.com! I’m so excited and proud of my little sis. She puts so much of herself into her writing and her writing style keeps you reading. This is the first book of the series and there’s at least two more to come titled: The Richest Heart and A Heroic Heart, which are completed but are not published yet. 😉

Edge of Eternity~ Novella by Shiree Walker ( Review)


Edge of EternityEdge of Eternity~ Novella by Shiree Walker

      I don’t normally review books but this was one that I had read recently and thought that I would share. This novella only cost$0.99 and was well worth the read! Shiree Walker is a good writer and kept me completely captivated! The story was written in present tense, so you feel like you are Emily going on the journey to find salvation. I couldn’t stop thinking about this book days after I read it! If you’re a fan of Pilgrim’s Progress like me,  you’ll want to read, Edge of Eternity. This book can be found on Amazon.com.                                   

Book Synopsis:

         Inspired by The Pilgrim’s Progress, this modern take features a young woman, Emily Watson, who only expected to enjoy another carefree summer day before college. She had no idea it would be the last day of her life… A freak accident leaves her trapped in a dream world where she encounters her guardian angel. He sends her on a quest to find the answers she needs to save her soul from eternal punishment at the hands of Justice, the dark creature that pursues her. Her quest takes her through wolf infested woods, over an active volcano, and forces her to relive the sins of her past. Can she find the answers she needs, or is it already too late?

These needle felted animals were made by my mom. She does such a good job! ( if I do say so myself) 😉

We’ve had our shop now for a whole year and 18 days! Woohoo!!! 🙂 We weren’t sure what to expect our first year. We’re so thankful for the sales that we’ve made, and have had a pretty good experiance using Etsy.

etsycaseSeveral years ago, my uncle gave us some vintage Barbie dolls that he had found in the attack of an old house. Being too old to play Barbie Dolls now, we decided to sell them.

She also has a blog that I hope you’ll follow too! @: theresasart.wordpress.com

I’m very happy with the oppertunity to sell our art online.

To all the other bloggers who have Etsy shops too, I hope you do well this next year! 🙂

Happy New Year!


Illistrating My First Book~Secret Under the Apple Tree ~Adding Color

After outlining my sketch with pen, I added watercolor. The color is very vibrant! And the hard textured paper seems to cup it and hold it ( at least, that’s what I imagine its doing). 😉
I’m not sure what paint I’m using, because I got my pallet from an estate sale, which still had left over paint inside. But from the other paints I got from there, I figure its Winsor and Newton, or Grumbaucher. I never used those before, so I was very pleased at their quality! When your just starting out, you can’t afford expensive paints. I feel very blessed to have all the supplies I need now to create my illustrations!
