Shine Time - BassHead 2

This piece is a custom creation for a heady customer. I am indeed pretty proud of it. I can't wait to keep creating more and more. They get a little more interesting each time!

My favorite thing about this is that it is full UV activated and I now know that Tan will be my official SHINE HAT color without a special request. It holds the glow so much nicer than other colors and is beyond easier to paint than darker tones. ALSO it's not white so dirt won't show quite as easily. :D

Research and development. What a great thing!   All in time.

ALSOOO You can now watch a video of this hat in action!!!
Check it out here :

I am blessed. Indeed.


Blessed be ...

Bless-ed be these eyes to see and this ray of light to me.
Let me the courage and the wisdom...
to see what needs to be.
How to find me.
In this world I needed the guides to see
the dimensions of the world
that are truly meant to be.

Thank you Universe
For choosing me.

Love and Light... things are about to SHINE so BRIGHT

Sorry for my lack of organization. However as always in the early stages of business and bloggin' growth there are big things happening. Worlds are changing and things are growing and being created! A lot of it because I am currently growing so much myself that it's ridiculously exciting.

I'm hoping to get some organized information together and start adding more motivational topics to the blog rather than just creation updates.

It's about time I spread more than just arts and crafts and spread some Love and Light in this world. Look out tis about to get real!

Happy Birthday to mee......

I couldn't help it! I caved and made myself an awesome birthday present! I have been dying to make myself an original Shine hat to represent my new favorite hobbies. BUT I am so picky when it comes to making things for me I usually just can't do it.
However, this weekend is a special occasion and I needed something sick to represent Shantastic Shine @ High Land Jam for my Birthday.

So here is my personal heady piece. Already got my Karma King Mafia Pin in place ready to spread the love.

I'm ready to SHINE.
Thanks for all the Birthday wishes I have already been getting in messages and random texts. You all Rock.

Feel free to CONTACT ME to request a custom SHINE HAT of your very own! I hand paint them and try to make everyone as special as possible. I am currently working on getting grassroots and flexfits. All in time.

Spinin' in Circles

I feel like it was a spinnin' in circles kinda night. I made a run to our local Ollie's Bargain Outlet with a coupon I had for 10% off! I was in need of some canvas, new markers , and a COMPASS!  Awesomely enough they had this nifty little "geometry" kit that had everything I needed! 

It included a protractor , ruler, a bunch of triangles , and a MECHANICAL compass  WOOO!

I spent ALL day studying ancient geometry and practicing with my compass! I grabbed an 11x14 canvas after some practice to see what I could do with a canvas rather than paper.

I managed to get enough good circles out to make this awesome rainbow flower of life design. Now tomorrow I shall try harder and tackle some more unique designs I have in mind!

Now chillax time. and do it again.

11x14 acrylic - Flower of life design. Rainbow Acrylic

2nd hat is now painted ! Yay!

After a few hours of concentration it is 2:52 in the a.m. and my 2nd hat is finished.... ahh accomplishment. 

NOW , it's chill time.

Then to rest up to rise tomorrow to make it shine!


The hat I just finished painting is a white flat bill. It is a fitted style size 7 1/2
The hat is originally white and was hang painted on the front and bill. Currently the "back" is splatter painted with black. 

The hat is neon painted and will soon be Black light activated! (For more info on this watch the SHINE video here) I will add it to the shop in the next few days. If interested at all please let me know. I will be working on a few other designs soon too. Hoping to raise enough to purchase Interlocken festival tickets before they are sold out. So please feel free to take a peak around in the shops to help donate to my much needed festy vacation fund as well as support my starving artist dreams.

All of you who take the time to peak around at all are what makes my day better. Thanks for your time!

Now enough late night rambling. I am going to go chillax.
Until next time,

A package full of AWESOME!

My mailman musta loved me today I received 3 packages of awesome things! I received a box of awesome sun catchers from @Native rose crafts that I will be sharing with you one day soon!  The second one was boyfriends BIRTHDAY PRESENT! which I  think I was more excited for than he even was. Now he can record things with his guitars and I can hear him play them over and over, as if I didn't already have his soundtrack permently engraved in my daily life playlist haha. None the less it is super cool and I am glad to have helped him get something important to one of his talents as well.

Finally what I have been DYING to share is I also received a box of treasures from a very awesome lady named De niece. She sent me a  nice assortment of glass pendants and charm bracelets!

All she wanted in exchange was a simple trade. But I have some surprises in store for her! I will be working on something special for her and her crew for a special trip they will be taking in the near future! Check in next week to see what her package is!
With all these awesome new things in my craft bag I will have to get to work on some pretty new pieces. I can't wait to share them all with you soon. Please check back in from time to time to see what I've newly created.

Until next time,

The first Shantastic SHINEhat - It glows and is UV activated!

FINALLY after tons of requests, and mentions of a "hat" design or piece of "artwork" I finally made The first Shantastic Shine Sales Hat attempt. 

It is a flat bill size 7 1/4 fitted hat. The back is currently white but could be dyed/painted a solid color if requested.

Hats are handpainted by Shannon C.

HOWEVER, my next step WAS to make this bad boy or the next one GLOW/UV activated.... and guess what I DID! I can now creat ShineHats that react to the UV lasers like the Shantastic SHINE BOARDS. I am beyond excited to create a few more for the upcoming festivities I plan to attend. SHINEhats are handpainted by Shannon C. and one of a kind. They are then glazed in a thin coat of a special uv reactive paint to react with laser. These hats will glow for a few minutes in a dark place if left or worn in direct sunlight for long periods of time. This shouldn't effect the hat or design. It is based off of the same idea as the stars that children can put on their cielings to glow at night.

Now you can have your own person glow on the go!

What kind of hats would you like to see? Do you have any ideas or themes for me? I would love to hear some input. 

Oh! One more thing! Did I mention I finally CREATED A VIDEO of the Shantastic SHINE in action! 

You can check it out CLICK HERE 

The website gets a LAST FOR SURE makeover!

The official homepage for ShantasticShine got it's last MAKEOVER!  check it out HERE

It is easier to load and navigate! The store is being stocked as much as I can this weekend. It does already have the first official SHINE HAT in stock! Which I will be blogging about TOMORROW! So check back for more detail!

What is Etsy?

I'm updating things again! Starting with the ETSY SHOP. Are you looking to shop Shantastic Shine Sales but don't like to make "facebook transactions"? Don't forget you can also shop online via ETSY to get Shantastic Shine Creations. 

WHAT IS ETSY? I have tons of people ask me this as soon as I mention it. So don't worry you aren't the only one confused. But for me and millions of other Artists it is a better version of Ebay. 

Kinda like a Handmade Ebay. Where everything is vintage or handmade, or supplies to make something handmade. 

There are tons of awesome items on there not from just me but thousands of other shops. It provides a secure sale for people who aren't to internet savvy or up to date on the online shopping trends. That way if you need a refund , there is a third party there to secure it , not just a facebook message. 

So if you have a few moments take a peak. Warning though you may get lost for hours in awesome handmade items. 

I see nothing wrong with that though ;) Support your Artists friends. They need jobs too.

:D Wanna help ensure you see my face at upcoming festivals?

Hello friends/fans/family/Art lovers :)

I am taking inventory through the weekend and trying to "Clear house" to not only make way for the bigger better projects I have in mind but to also help raise some last minute cash to get the rest of our summer tickets before they get any higher! (Trying to ensure our tickets for: Interlocken Music Festival Rootwire 2K13 | August 15th-18th, 2013 | Logan, OH, USA and a few others to see some of my awesome festy family.)

Also working to get some new supplies to bring you guys awesome handmade goods through out the summer, as well as 5-10 new larger style pieces of artwork with a more Shantastic Original Style to them :)

If you could do me the favor of checking out my albums on facebook to see live updated items as they are made.


or the official SHANTASTIC SHOP 

Purchasing something to help me get a little closer to my goals would of course be greatly appreciated. I also throw in a little something extra for those who help when I am in a crunch. I would hope to see as many of your smiling faces there as well!♥

ALSO for most of my paintings now I can do a UV CLEAR COAT which will allow you to "draw" or "play" with laser light pens on them without effecting the design or artwork. It helps make art interactive and actually fun for HOURS of entertainment.

Please feel free to contact me for more information. :)
