Meet Our Sponsors | Creatively Made Business

  I live in a creative world that has predominately been created, supported and sustained by women. I am constantly reminded how much of a powerful impact we have when we work with one another. It has been through these collaborations with other women that I have not only found my way in this creative business but have been able to thrive because of their support system. I always remind people that in life and business…we cannot do it alone. …

The Roundup |Free Beauty Found on the Internet

Sometimes it will be the little things like the sound of the fountain as I am pulling weeds in the garden, the kids wanting to tell me about their day, an orange and pink sunset, the horses neighing across the road and even beauty found on the internet given by complete strangers. I found so many beautiful little treasures on the …

An Artist in Tuscany | With Carolyn Peeler

In 2018 I knew that 2019 was going to be the last year I led overseas art workshops for the foreseeable future. As much as I loved gathering, teaching and traveling it was the most deep knowing that it was time and I had complete peace about my decision. Then 2020 changed all of our worlds and I was not only grateful that I didn’t have scheduled trips to cancel but it also was a reminder how much I had …

Transitions | Our daughter is heading to college

I like schedules, planning, knowing what is coming, and pretty much pretending that I am in control which I know deep down I am not at all. I don’t like change and transitions are hard for me. When there are lots of changes I feel it like a small storm under the surface and I try to slowly navigate the emotions but sometimes I push them aside to deal with another day because…well, they are hard. Sometimes even the most …
