I Do Things Scared All of The Time | Building a Creatively Made Business

When you are building your business you KNOW you don’t know anything. Everyone else around you KNOWS you don’t know things and you are figuring things out. Then, as you start to have success and gain traction there can be a perception that you now know more, aren’t scared anymore or that you have great instincts or a million other guesses about you, your business and your success. I am scared so many times in our day to day running …

Time to Gather + Rest

One of the sweetest creative gifts I have given myself is to honor my gifts with practice and also the times I have gathered with other creatives and honed my skills, took the time away and made my creativity a priority. I often don’t realize how fast we are moving or how much we are pushing each day until I schedule breaks, creating and time with friends. I would love to invite you to the last two workshops in our …

How To Create Inviting Outdoor Spaces This Fall

I wanted to share how to bring our own fall tablescape together by using as an example of a tablescape I designed in our last home. 1. …

Gorgeous Work Being Created in Paint Your Town!

I would love to take a moment to share the gorgeous work being created in my online course Paint Your Town: Mixed Media Urban Landscapes. It is truly blowing me away! It is never my intention to teach other artists how to create art like me but to take techniques and make them their own.  The artists in this course are doing just that! I am so moved by how they took techniques and prompts and then with connecting with …

The Big Picture Free Video | Honoring your gifts, finding balance and living a creative life that you love

Being a wife, mom, friend, business owner, household manager, school juggler and creative are some of the hats I wear. I know you are the same and probably more. I also know that if I am not intentional with my marriage, children, schooling, business, creative time etc. than I miss out on opportunities of being present in each of these areas. I am not saying it is easy but it is very much worth it. Being intentional and seeing the …

If Adventure, Creating and Travel Speak To You {I have something for you}

Sometimes we get to be wild explorers and travel far away, other times we can connect with other creatives not far from home and at other times we have the joy of hunkering down right where we live and creating among our day to day life.  Each one of these are life giving and creative building travels. I love that my travels have allowed me to build beautiful new friendships, sketch among stained glass windows and old wooden pews, sip …
