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 …

Beginning your business giveaway {The best giveaway I have ever had}

I have a heart for women. I am constantly amazed at the depth, quality, beauty, talent and strength of women. I had promised myself when I first started that if I ever figured this whole thing out (and I am still learning) that I would share how I did it. Along the way I have always tried to answer emails, encourage and support other small business owners (and dreamers). I had questions at the beginning and so many didn’t want …

Video {Art Supply Basics}

Hello everyone! I am excited because today I am sharing with you my first video. Let me clarify….I did a really awesome one and the sound was bad. I did a second one and it was OK but the sound was also jacked up. I made a third as the the sun was going down, I was sick of the sound of my own voice and I was already tired of what I was saying and that is the one …

Everybody Cut Footloose

I had been wanting to watch Footloose very badly lately.  Don't ask me why or judge my movie viewing choices.  Maybe I was longing for 1984?  All I can say is that when we finally watched it I laughed a lot more than I did in 1984!  Maybe my head was cloudy from all the Aqua Net I was daily inhaling.  Maybe the blue eyeshadow was seeping into my brain.  If you want to feel really old…this movie came out 24 YEARS …
