Art Retreats!

I lead all kinds of art retreats at Big Raven Farm in southeast Minnesota. It’s all about the art I make on TikTok (plus really great food and optional yoga and other activities!) If you like what I make online, you’re going to love making your own versions live and in person with me! We always have a great time at these retreats and you’ll come away from this relaxing weekend with plenty of ideas and inspiration, completed pieces, fun swag, and new friends. I have a full schedule of retreats lined up for the coming months. Reserve your spot today — space is limited and will fill up soon!

Parts List for Floor Lamp

Looking to make this awesome floor lamp?! Here are the things you’ll need…

  • 1 chunk of wood for the base, approximately 1 foot (30 cm) across.
  • 4 feet for the base (so the electrical cord has room to snake out from under it). These could be pieces of wood, plastic buttons, or thick felt pads, just to lift it enough to make room for the electrical cord.
  • 5 feet (1.5 meters) or so of threaded iron pipe from the hardware store (plus a connector if you have 2 shorter pieces of iron pipe instead of 1 long one).
  • 1 iron flange that will sit on the wood base and will accept the threaded iron pipe.
  • 4 wood screws to hold the flange to the wood base.
  • 1 lamp kit (about $13 at Amazon).
  • 3 threaded reducers to bring the iron pipe down to the same size as the threaded light stem.
  • 1 lamp shade.

(If you have any questions, let me know! The friendly people at your local hardware store can help you figure out all the necessary pieces if you need some assistance. Don’t be afraid to wire this yourself — it’s really easy: just two wires!)

Free Downloads!

Want something cool for free? How about a PDF full of paper dolls? These are perfect for printing, cutting out, and pasting into collages. Super cute and I’ve used them in plenty of my own projects!

Our Yoga Mats

I love making art, but we also make awesome, beautiful yoga mats! They’re 6' × 2' × 4.5mm thick, with a 100% natural rubber back and a super grippy microfiber vegan suede surface.

We print to order — you place an order, we sublimate your design onto a blank mat, and ship it directly to you. It couldn’t be easier!

Our mats are super soft, super grippy, and we can produce super vibrant colors that won’t fade or bleed!

(We can also print your custom artwork on our big, beautiful canvases. Functional art! Amazing gifts! And you earn a royalty on your work! Reach out by email, phone, or contact form if you’re interested.)
