The (watercolor) bull is still running!

I'm so excited that Bobbie Thomas, Style Editor for The Today Show, decided to feature my "DIY watercolor masterpiece" on her site! The Etsy blog announced a call for submissions last week and I jumped at the chance to be featured. It is a huge honor to be given a shout-out on her site. Bobbie is announcing and demonstrating her top DIY pick at 9:36am today on NBC's The Today Show.

I encourage everyone to give this project a try. I had my friends come over for a craft day in June and they had great success with watercolor stenciling. We made it a little easier by using sticky stencil paper but I am very fond of the masking tape effect from my original tutorial. Have fun with it and please feel free to email me photos of your finished work.

My watercolor tutorial has shown me so much love I can hardly believe it. I must thank my husband for the inspiration, as it was a Valentine's Day gift for him. The bull idea came from a character in his short story, Los Banditos Jalapeños. The bull is a magical piñata that brings courage, inspiration, and love - you can see it in his big pink heart.

As a reminder, prints and originals (yes I will create one just for you!) of my watercolor bull are also for sale at my Etsy shop.


  1. Congratulations! That Bobbie Thomas has good taste.
