Here is something I am trying out! A new way to find freelance work and put more to my student loans! Check it out! You can always message me if you have any projects you want me to do. This could be a complete disaster but I'm always trying different ways to get my work out there! http://www.gofundme.com/dimx3g

While I am teaching, I'm allowed to set out a"tip" can. It is always awkward asking for money, especially when the tickets are already bought and customers have a food/drink bill. One way I have been successful at bringing attention to the tip can is by making mini paintings! I announce at the end that tips are welcome, and if they happen to tip more than $10, they can take a mini painting.
Last night was my 50th event! I did not even announce that, and with only 15 people sign up I was completely shocked when I counted well over $100 in my tip can. Only one person took a mini painting , yet my can had multiple 20 bills and 10 bills. I felt accomplished and proud that I gave everyone a great paint experience and I was more proud of how everyone's paintings turned out!
When I'm teaching a Paint Nite event I try to get unique and fun photos. Here are some of my favorite group photos. It is difficult sometimes to encourage everyone to get together but this photo was a success! Only 10 people were missing but we still had a great evening!
