lunar @ the art lounge on 101


if you’re in the san diego or southern california area, join me on january 8th at the art lounge on 101 for an art journal workshop! I’ll be teaching one of my favorite classes: lunar.

this one-day workshop is so appropriate for the new year, as it focuses on embedding intentions into your journal during the layering process. and what better way to kick off 2017 than getting creative…

hop on over here for more details and to register for the class. I hope you’ll join me!

shop update (last week to order!)


I hope the holiday season is treating you well thus far! I’m here to let you know that this is the last week you’ll be able to purchase any physical merchandise from my etsy shop. so we’re talking stencils, mini journals, postcards, stickers, mini prints, etc…

I’ll be leaving the online classes up for purchase, but will be closing the remainder of my shop from December 19th through December 27th!

every other year I spend the holidays on the east coast, meaning I won’t be able to ship out orders during those dates. so, now is really your last chance to buy from my etsy shop in 2016! hop on over here to shop…

thanks again for all of your continual support in shopping small and helping artists like me continue to do what we do!

vlogmas 2016


artist Roxanne Coble does VLOGMAS (a daily vlog on her youtube channel!)

so, like a crazy person…I’ve decided to participate in vlogmas this year.

if you’re unfamiliar with vlogmas, it’s basically an annual youtube thing where you create a vlog everyday for the month of december leading up to christmas. I’m jumping on the bandwagon simply because it seemed like an interesting challenge. I have always been fascinated with youtubers who vlog every single day. how do they do it?! well…I’m about to find out.

day one of vlogmas is up on my youtube channel. hop on over here to watch, and be sure to subscribe to my channel to never miss a video!


mini prints now available!

mini art prints from artist Roxanne Coble (aka BY BUN)

a few weeks ago I decided to order a little mini print of one of my journal illustrations. when it arrived in my mailbox and I opened it up, I fell in love with it so much I decided to order more…and put them up in my etsy shop!

these little guys are so multifunctional: use as gift tags, trading cards, cut ’em up and use them in your own mixed media work, or simply frame as a mini piece of art…

hop on over here to snag a set!

friday finds


friday finds on the 'by bun blog' from artist Roxanne Coble

I realized it’s been ages since I did a ‘friday finds’ post, and it just so happens that I have a pretty interesting round up of links!

this weekend is looking to be pretty chill – a little bit of art, a little bit of hanging out. I’ve come to really savor weekends like these where I’m not teaching or running around like a mad woman. sure I’ll have a few business items to do (*cough cough…like preparing for a black friday weekend sale in my etsy shop…cough cough*), but I’m hoping to really just focus on creating.

let’s check out this batch of finds eh?

…the deadliest garden in the world!
