Where the magic happens… (hint: it takes a little vulnerability)

Right at that moment when you think you should give up and quit, if you can find the strength to push through, that is when the magic happens!  Maybe that is what was happened to me. A short time ago, I felt like I had won the lottery and I saw great things coming my way. Then, I hit a big wall and found myself screaming at my children, (like that blood curdling shit that people might...

I am Manifesting the Shit out of this…

I had no idea what I didn't know when I didn't know it...duh...of course. It is actually not a secret at all that the shit the The Secret talks about, the Law of Attraction and about manifesting the life you want by focusing specifically on what you really want, is real, and yet for a very long time it wasn't to me. I had no idea that energy follows intention and that action, no matter how...

Your Art Can’t Afford to Make You Money!

Your Art can't afford to make you money...she is timid and delicate deserving of a pedestal. Although she is tough enough to rip your heart out and serve it to you...treat her right and she will care for your soul all the days of your life. Abuse her and put her to work and she will turn on you, run and hide until she feels it is safe for her to return. We are each...

In That Moment I Had To Decide!

So this happened yesterday morning...although I believe the events, (the ones inside and outside my head), over the past few days, weeks even, had been working their way up to it. On its own...the moment is nothing, barely a blip on the day-to-day radar, but in that small moment I made a huge decision, one that maybe I have made before and didn't realize the significance so I had to make it again, so that I could...

Honey, you will always get what you ask for.

This is for my girls...I love you both with all my heart and all that I am! You will always get what you ask for... So choose your words (even the ones in your head) wisely because the parts of you that control your brain, your muscles and all of your thoughts, are listening. And they don't care why you say what you do, they just listen and do everything in they're power (which is...

Have you given yourself permission to start?

When I started to really think about what I wanted to do with my creative life I used to get very overwhelmed by all the things I didn't know. Which was pretty much everything! I had no idea how to draw, how to use Instagram let alone manage multiple social media platforms simultaneously, how to paint, how to write, how to hand-letter or most importantly how take time for myself and listen to my heart....

Begin At The Beginning

As I sat there at 5:46 am enjoying my coffee I was utterly amazed. Even in my sleepy state, sitting by the dim lamplight of our sun-room, before the sun was up to do its job, I could tell, feel, that I was different. About a month prior I began a journey, ok that’s not entirely true I had been on this journey for years, but more recently, through a series of happenstance events I found myself reading a self-help book...

Art Found Me

I married an artist, I am wowed by artists, art makes me feel deeply, the energy of music brings me to tears, observing creativity in action makes be feel like I am floating but I could never, would never...I am not a creator. I was born to be a fan...I actually have the loudest clap of anyone I know, so I figured it was true, I was born to ride the sidelines and just be...

Just Start Writing

Thinking about thinking, that is what I found myself doing that early morning, the rain was pounding down in a beautiful song coaxing my thoughts to rhythmically be drawn from my mind. The day before I had started a list of stories I wanted to tell, a book of stories I wanted to write, a list that grew to over 100. Stories that still repeat in my mind on a regular basis, stories that I have been re-telling but had not...
