Arm Art!

This is so FUN! You have to check out Fantasy Face Paint by Anna to see more of her work! Her painting process was so unique because she was inspired by what we were wearing, so our designs complimented our attire perfectly. She also painted stunning designs on people’s face, neck, and even feet! I was so sad when I had to wash off my design. I admit this kind of made me want to get a real tattoo! Maybe one of these days! I’m definitely going back for more designs in the future! These are just too fun!

The Art of Running!

I’ve been telling people for about five years now that I think I’m having a midlife crisis. I don’t think many people believed me, but maybe you’ll change your mind when you hear this...wait for it...wait for it...

on Friday, May 13th I signed up for a MARATHON!!!

Like a real one! This means I will be running 26.2 miles in about seven months from now. I’ll keep you updated on my progress, but since this blog is all about the heART, I’ll also make sure each running post has an artistic spin.

So, without further’s a picture of what’s going to be getting a lot of miles in over the next few months and also what’s going to get me across the finish line! What’s so artistic about that??? Well, these puppies happen to be covered in Via Arte chalk! Pretty soon they'll probably be covered in blisters...ewww!

First Friday!!!

Every First Friday of the month you need to be downtown!!! Art Galleries are open to the public, stores stay open, there’s music on the streets, and the best part...awesome artists are selling their masterpieces!!! Here are two of my favorite participants at the event! I love their work!!!

Check them out in more depth at:


Donate Life Bakersfield gathered together to run in the Donate Life annual 5K Run/Walk. This was Saint Olive’s first ever party planning event and we had so much fun with all the participants! We had such a wonderful group that traveled down to California State University, Fullerton on April 30th. One of the highlights was the revealing of the Donate Life Bakersfield logo!!! This is a huge deal because it’s the first ever city logo that has been approved by Donate Life AMERICA!!! Here are some pictures of the goodie bag preparation. Thank you to my sweet neighbor kids who helped me stuff the bags!
