Artistic Adventures and Acrylic Pouring


My artistic ability ranges from stick figures to oval cats with stick legs. Yup … that’s about it! My daughter, Alex, is an incredible artist 😊 She loves dragons, scales and eyes. She somehow captures emotions very well and when she shares her sketches with me, I am in awe and do my best to express how proud I am of her and flame her passion of creativity!

So, we’ve taken this to a whole new level. Perhaps I went a bit overboard, but we’ve transformed half of our garage into an art studio for all of our projects! She really wants to video everything we do and post them to YouTube so I’ll have to do some research on how to set everything up.

Stay tuned for that inevitable newbness 😊

I’m going to post videos and pictures of our journey from newb to hopefully something righteous!

Here are our first attempts at acrylic pouring hehe

Regardless if where that righteousness leads, we’re about to create some wonderful memories together and nothing in the world, except old age and memory loss hehe … will take that away from us 😊

This is my first from me to you post on this blog. I wanted to give everyone a little background about me, my family and the reasons I wrote Sissy’s in Trouble.

I was born and raised in Texas, but don’t hold that against me! My family relocated to Georgia in August 2009, and wow! I love the trees, I really do, but where did the sky go?

When I was a child, Wonder Woman and Michael Knight were my heroes. Now, I know I’m aging myself, but I firmly believe in keeping things real, and they both deserve eternal reverence. I was on the swim team, but for whatever the reason, I kept ending up in other people's lanes. Go figure.

Instead of using a pseudonym, I am using my real name, Vanessa Jean Shockley, for all of The Demon Bunny Chronicles. I am a happily married women with two beautiful daughters, Alex and Haley. They are ten years apart. I thought it was a good idea, but what ended up happening was I had a toddler and a teenager. Yup. I did that. My mother says they have my attitude problem, but I’m not quite sure what she means by that.

I wrote Sissy’s in Trouble for my daughters. I have published other works, but I really wanted to be able to give them something wonderful, written just for them.
I have one dog named Annabel Lee, and one cat named Serenity Angel. They both think it’s ok to wake up at 5:00 a.m. and alert the rest of the house. For this reason, my family is going house hunting today! Yay for fences and pet doors.

To bring this tidbit of an introduction to an end, I write. Or at least, I claim to. My husband is a phenomenal writer, and I just skip along while humming “Eye of the Tiger” … trying my best to make people laugh and admire my work.

Happy reading and sincerest regards,

Vanessa Jean Shockley
