Back to business after a crazy/amazing/full-of-lessons/intense 10 days group exhibition. We are done with the show but still working hard to create our art-promoting hub. Today is painting day though, as I can’t be too long without grabbing my brushes 😊.
Paul and I were chatting to our 3 year old niece the other day and she told us that she can‘t be a brain surgeon when she‘s all grown up, because only boys can be brain surgeons 😆 - We have no idea where she got that idea from but it got me thinking about the funny and weird and silly things we used to believe when we were kids. - I used to think that a loved one would die if I sang Christmas carols at any time other than December 😳 (This was totally my mum‘s doing but in her defence, I‘m utterly tone deaf 🙉🙉🙉 She was fighting for her own sanity... with a rather extreme story but you‘d do the same to make me stop singing 😆). - And, of course I‘d never ever let any of my limbs hang over the side of the bed. That‘s how the monsters will get you 😉 (And I‘ve realised I‘m still doing it to this day. You‘d never find my hands or feet dangling over the bed. And it slightly freaks me out when I see Kavik‘s paws not properly tucked in. I‘m always so tempted to adjust his position. You know... just in case 🤪🤪🤪) - What about you? What weird and funny things did you believe as a child? Let me know in the comments 👇 I‘d love to hear your stories. . . .

A couple months ago I posted about a set of baby onesies I made for a mom to be that is a MEGA harry potter / star wars fan... well check out this cutie daughter of hers! Little Ellis is adorable & I must say representing very well as "Storm Pooper"
Did you know that once upon a time I was a teenage-haunted-house prodigy? (Well, @nokloor was the prodigy, I was the wingman 😉) I’ve had plenty of creative jobs, but creating Haunted Houses was by far one of my favorites. Nerdy? Yes. Theatre kid nerdy? Yes. Exhilarating and incredibly fulfilling? Abso-f*cking-lutely. I believe everyone should have access to full creative expression, no matter what form that takes. Fun fact: the #boulderhighschool haunted house is still running today, over 10 years later. #hauntedlegacy

Some of you may look at this drawing as a great portrait of a grandpa and his grandkids, but what you may not know is that Dick never got to hold our children down here on Earth ❤️ This is a beautiful portrait we will treasure forever! I had a vision to create a piece with Darrel and Dick 6 years ago, but couldn't find the right artist. I've been searching every year since and what do you know.. I found the best around in Carlin, Robert Gift - Gift Designs! I'm glad I waited so we had Kassidy in the portrait as well. Robert did an exceptional job merging the two images to make the most amazing portrait. Thank you so much Robert! Happy Father's Day, Andy. And happy father's day, Dick! We love you and miss you every day. Framed by: Picture This! Elko

Four years ago I donated my hair to children with hair loss, and I decided to do it again. Four years ago I wrote the post below, and I still mean every word. Love wins, y’all! ........ This morning I held my hair in my hands and thought about all that it means to me. If I’m being brutally honest, so much of my outward beauty identity is held in my makeup and my hair. If I am not having a good hair or makeup day it effects my whole demeanor. Shallow? Maybe. But it’s true. Then I kept thinking: what if I didn’t have hair? What if I didn’t have hair AND my body was being ravished by illness? What if I didn’t have hair AND my body was fighting with everything it had AND I didn’t know if that day would be my last? As I held my hair I decided I was going to give it away. I’ve grown so much this past year emotionally and spiritually. I want to give more of myself away and continue in this new found freedom! If my hair is one more thing I’m clinging on to, then why not give it away? Why not break out of more of the chains that hold me? I heard a teacher say recently, “Joy can only be sustained by consciously giving it away.” Like smiling at the cashier. Or helping a harried mother load her cart full of groceries in the car. Or giving away your hair. I prayed over my 8 inches of hair. To you who may get my hair: may you know I am with you and I am for you; I believe we are connected by Divine DNA and now by hair too. May you know that the universe was made for you and you are extravagantly loved by an intimate God. I stand with you through this battle your body is fighting, and you are not alone. Love wins.
How cool is it to know that we are all walking representations of God Our dreams our desires and passions reflect him What lights us up What fires us up Is the very thing that lights him up Our dreams and genuine desires were not put within us by accident They are not part of us by accident They are meant to be our guidance systems Your passions reflect Gods heart Your dreams are there for you to live out and they also show Gods heart So don’t play them down Don’t act like they aren’t important Live as though they MUST be lived out Live as though they are very important Live as though they are beyond valuable Pay attention to them, cultivate, and bring your passions and dreams forth everyday💜 You are worth it Your dreams and passions are worth it They are meant to be lived out They are meant to move humanity forward And they are meant to reflect God ✨ . . . . . #savvybusinessowner#womenwhohustle#mycreativebiz#creativehappylife#calledtobecreative#myownboss#theeverydaygirl#creativeentrepreneur#makersgonnamake#womeninbusiness#ladypreneur#theeverygirl#womenwithambition#bossbabe#createtocultivate #communityovercompetition#societygal#bedeeplyrooted#createcultivate#creativityfound#herestothecreatives#dreamersanddoers#creativeatheart#liveauthentic#purposework#entrepreneurspirit
Happy Monday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm wrapping up a couple of different projects this week and thinking about how much I love getting client feedback. 🤓 Is that weird? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's the thing: I've been writing professionally since college (and before, if you count the high school internship where I covered sports I didn’t understand 🤷🏼♀️) and that will beat any sensitivity to criticism right out of you. I truly love a good editing session. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also try to remember that accepting feedback on our creative work is only hard if we decide it means something about us. Taking the time to get it right is the service part of a service-based creative business. So today I'm grateful for wise clients and the chance to dig in and refine 🖍. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @emmaleighphoto . . . #freelancelife#creativebusinessowners#mycreativebusiness#creativeatheart#livecreative#mycreativebiz#womenindigital#freelancelifestyle#ohwowyes#createcultivate#dontquityourdaydream#solopreneurs

The thing about bravery is that it almost never feels like it in the moment.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ USUALLY, it feels like you’re on the edge of a cliff and the only choices are to move forward and take a risk - or tip-toe back the way you came.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ USUALLY, it feels like resistance. Or fear. Or not-enoughness.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ USUALLY, it feels like a knowing in your gut, butterflies, a tightening - where you know, you just know that you have to take a step. You have to make the thing, or write the thing, or share the thing, or pitch the thing. You might not know what each and every step looks like. You might not know exactly where it will lead you. You might not know what’s waiting for you on the other side. But you know, deep down, that this is what you need to do.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ AND when it lives somewhere in the intersection between scared and excited, between nervous and holy-shit-I’ve-got-to-do-this, that’s when you know that - underneath the fear or resistance or not-enoughness and nerves - lives bravery.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Your inner critic might turn the volume up to 10. Your perfectionism might try to convince you to wait, to take another course, read another book, push it off until you’ve mastered it, perfected it, polished up any flaws. Your stories of shame or scarcity might show up in the moments just before you hit publish or hop on the call or step onto the stage.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ BUT, brave one, you can do this.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ You can take the steps, one at a time, knees wobbling and voice quaking, and get that (desperately needed!) work out into the world where it belongs. You can push past the voices of self-doubt and perfectionism that hold you back, watching as the stories of shame and scarcity fall away with each brave step. You can do this.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It’s almost (officially) summertime, friend. What brave steps do you want to take in this season? What do you want to make, create, publish, quit, share, sell, shift? 👇🏼⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Cheering
