Being a Tourist in Denver | Top Spots on My Birthday

I am a birthday girl and try to squeeze every last bit out of it on that day. When people say they don’t really care about their bday’s I do not relate to those people. At all. One day all about me and what I want to do and everyone smiles the whole day while they do my things? Perfection. If I am being completely honest I believe it is more like birthWEEK. If I am really lucky I start …

Come and Create With Danielle Donaldson {coming to Denver this summer}

I am so lucky to be surrounded by amazingly strong and creative women. I guess luck doesn’t have anything to do with it.  I am picky and spend my time and energy building up healthy and loving relationships. My life is sweeter, funnier, more creative and more sarcastic because Danielle Donaldson is in it! If you live in the Denver area (or you want to come in for a nice weekend) you are in for a real treat because Danielle …

Out Exploring and Collecting

I have talked a lot in my newest online art course to be collectors of everything around you and then transform it into something that is your own. Nothing can leave me more inspired than a day spend at an art museum. This past Saturday we spent the day as a family at the Denver Art Museum enjoying the exhibit Passport to Paris. This exhibit is only here one more week and I highly recommend it. The best part is …

The Living Studio {City Art Walks Around The World}

Last fall as I was walking with Kelly through the Tuileries Gardens I instantly knew what kind of art retreat I wanted to create. I am not the person that dreams of having art retreats or had even been planning to ever create one. There are so many beautiful and amazing art retreats that it didn’t even seem necessary….until now! I wanted to do something different than anyone else I knew. The idea of creating art with you in Paris …

She Works Hard For The Money {So Hard For It Honey}

Friday night Kelly and I packed our children up and dropped them off with my sister and her family for the night. We weren’t heading away on a romantic weekend alone…..we were heading home to finish getting things ready for the Horseshoe Market in the morning. I am not an early morning person. I am not a morning person. OK…the truth is I don’t even like to wake up! I usually wake up between 8 and 9. Some of my …

What Do You Feel?

Isn’t it amazing how deeply art can touch you? Within minutes of being at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival I was in a man’s booth and one of his art pieces almost brought me to tears. Later in the day my sister was able to see an artist that I adore and she called me telling me that she could have cried because her art was so touching. But art doesn’t just move you to tears.  Art can be repulsive …
