🌻 . . “MAKE LIKE A SUNFLOWER” . . Day 20 of my @funadaydundee project, and petals are being stitched. My Sunshine girl said, “wow Mum, I think you really must like stitching!!!”, she would be right. Been itching to get back to it all day today. ☀️ . . A run, a trip to spend some Christmas money (myself AND the littles!) and to the shops for supplies first...! What a lovely Sunday spent! 💗💛 THEN back to the stitching!🧵 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bluebellebombshell #findyourhappy #joybringer #makehappy #joyimprinted #bethesunshine #funadaydundee2019 #funadaydundee #funaday #makelikeasunflower #dundee #create #waketomake #creativehappylife #wip #yellowmakesmehappy #growthandstrength #sunflowers #sunflowersmakemehappy #fifecreative  #scottishartist #slowcraft  #embroideryart #nicegirlsneedleclub #embroidery #mummyoftwo #mysunshinegirl #creativemamas

What an amazing time with my besties in Nashville this weekend! Really needed to recharge my soul and there was no better medicine. ✨ So help me toast to the women in our lives that surround us with love, make us laugh so hard our cheeks hurt, can have a deep serious conversation but suddenly stop for a good song, and are always there at the perfect time you need them. 🍾 Styled by: @celebrationstylist Flowers: @bohogardenflowers Party blueprint: @ What an amazing time with my besties in Nashville this weekend!

The jigsaw art project that didn't quite go to plan! 🤦🏽‍♀️ . My ideas don't always work out but I love experimenting with different arts and crafts! 🎨 . I picked up a blank jigsaw from @flyingtiger for £1 on Friday and I thought it would be nice for Oliver to create his own puzzle! . So I thought of using a stencil and paint sponges to create the picture however the paint smudged a bit too much so it looks rather abstract! However Oliver was happy with the end product which is the main thing! Plus he explored mixing the primary colours together which he found interesting! . After, I did find a way of creating a picture using stencils by creating a 'reverse' picture by adding paint to the stencil first and then printing it on top of the jigsaw after. (See last few photos). . If you wanted to, you could create a simple shape puzzle by using sponges or for older ones, they could create their own picture! (Would love to see other people's creations too!) . Who else ended up in Flying Tiger for the 'everything £2 or under sale?!' Would love to hear about what you got and what projects you have done or are up your sleeve?! . . . #toddlerart #toddlerartist #letthembecreative #artist #littleartist #mykidsmaketoo #kidscrafts101 #kidsart #creativemamas #creativekids #craftymama #creativetable #craftsforkids #eyfsideas #eyfs #earlyyears #earlyyearsart
Working on another of these snowy sets today. I haven’t made one in cream for ages so it makes a nice change.  We’ve just had a walk to @yorkshirewildlifepark and it’s a bit chilly and dank, so I’m looking forward to getting home and having a nice hot cuppa, and maybe a cheese toastie 😍

Just a quick painting while my littlest one had some lunch. Still not sure about the background colours. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

✨RIP✨ Mary Oliver.  Thank you so much for your teachings. Many times have I dived down into the depths and truths and beauties of your words and emerged, changed. ✨this is probably my favourite MARY Oliver poem although it’s hard to decide, there are so many incredible ones! ✨ This is the line that pulls me back each and every time, the one that jumped out st me and has as much impact today as it did upon my first reading. (It is also in my bio like a little mantra and has been a concept I’ve been trying to live by for the past few years... ✨”let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work, which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished”. ✨🙌🏼✨ ✨What’s your favourite Mary Oliver poem? ✨✨✨
12/30 of #30daysofcreativepractice I mixed it up today by layering watercolor over soft pastels. I really am loving pastels lately. #floralpainting #artjournal #blooming #flowerlovers #secretgarden #creativemamas #watercolor #pastel #mixedmedia

It’s a sweltering 38°C in Perth today so we’re staying indoors doing rallies on our souped up cardboard racetrack 🏎  Here’s a racetrack like no other, beware of dinosaur valley, don’t get stuck in sticky grass, look out for the giant bugs and definitely don’t venture near the lava 🕷 🌋 #thisiswhyihoardcardboard * This is also a fun introduction to magnets and metals as the boys used a magnet under the cardboard to race their bottle tops.

A little bit about myself. My name is Pamela. I am a soon to be first time mama. I have been carrying a precious being in my belly for a little over six months now.  My fears of not being enough, of not being prepared are overwhelming at times. I have been especially overwhelmed in the last few months. The pregnancy, though a beautiful blessing, was a surprise. Balancing energy between remaining emotionally, physically and spiritually healthy for the benefit of this baby while simultaneously growing my small business bas been challenging.  Some days I just don’t have the same energy as I did when I started this creative venture. It’s difficult to stay positive some days. And it’s difficult to maintain that energy of manifestation.  I am eternally grateful for the support of my partner and my family. So much love and gratitude.  I’d also like to give a shout out to all the creative mamas out there. I admire you and your beautiful tenacity.  #aboutthecreator #creativemamas #creativemama #ecofashion #slowclothes #slowfashion

Im inspired by your stories and your dreams. ☕ So, since I can't meet up with you, would you care to have a little coffee date right here? Share a little of your journey or your why with me here in the comments or even send me a message? Let's be friends! I'd love to know more how I can encourage you daily while we all hang out here every day!
Calligraphy month: we're sharing some of our favourite feeds to inspire you.  Natasha from @awwcalligraphy has such a gorgeous style, doesn't she? Her feed is full of beautiful applications of her calligraphy, I particularly like the long, wordy ones. Check it out for the beautiful styling too (I think she might quite like flowers!) #repost #cosycalligraphymonth #cosycraftclub #awwcalligraphy #awaywithwords #moderncalligraphy #calligraphyuk #calligraphyinspiration #weddingcalligraphy #calligraphy #handwritten #moderncalligrapher #lettering #letteringlover #creativemamas
My feed is about to be taken over by all things spring. Flowers, bees and colorful moths!  I’m ready for the sunshine, warmth and vibrant colors that spring brings...how about you?
This month we are studying the desert and we’ve been talking about cactus. The perfect topic for winter 🤨. I don’t know why I chose desert for winter, but we did learn there is a desert in Antarctica so I guess it fits. I wanted to pick a hands on activity that we could do while talking about my favorite plant. We will be planting some cactus and succulents in a couple weeks, but today we made our own. We used toothpicks and cucumber (I helped my youngest so she wouldn’t get poked). While we made them we talked about why cactus have “pokers” and then looked through a garden book to see all the different kinds. To add a little more sensory to this activity, I bought an aloe leaf from the grocery store and we cut it open and felt the inside. Check out our stories for more insight into our activity. ❤️❤️Rachel •• • • • • • • #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfun #homeschoollife #earlyyearsideas #homeschoolideas #homeeducator #homeschoolactivities #learnathome #earlyyearsteacher #homeeducation #homeschoolkindergarten #learningathome #earlychildhoodeducation #momblogger #kidsactivities #teachermom #learningactivities #schoolathome #hiphomeschoolmoms #handsonlearning #creativemamas #invitationtolearn #deserthabitat #learningthroughplay #playbasedlearning #childhoodunplugged #teachersofinstagram #finemotorskills

Toddler Activity: Pour & Play Station! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is a great activity to keep your little one busy! You just need a few random items from your kitchen and some water! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💦I set up Avery’s learning tower against the counter, but you could also sit them in the sink, plop them in the tub, or  use a large storage tub for this activity! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💦Some of the items I gave her to play with include: Funnel Strainer Plastic measuring cup Ladles Small travel soap bottles with the lids off (practice scooping up the lids and pouring from the small bottles!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨For the month of February I am committing to 30 days of hands-on activities for Avery!

My baby brought me a clove of garlic and some water yesterday because mama caught a cold 😁😍. I had to snap a photo! It warmed my heart the way both my girls stepped up, and today I'm at 90% 🙏🏽. You can check out my live to hear me talk about that. My 4 year old made me tea, brought me garlic and water and I didn't have to ask. My 12 year old cooked and let me rest, and she brought my tinctures with water, and I didn't have to ask. The level of compassion and maturity they displayed in understanding, internalizing and reciprocating the love their dad and I give them made me SO proud. They enabled me to "uncontagiously 😂" get up and move in my purpose today, and I was able to touch the lives of this group and another in a few minutes. I work for myself while enriching others, and I get no sick days. Your network of support as a creative is crucial and when you consistently move in compassion, and in your purpose, the support can sometimes come from the most unexpected places. If you don't have support right now, motivate yourself and move in compassion-- it 👏🏽will 👏🏽come👏🏽! - - - - - -#modelbehavior #eachoneteachone #creativeentrepreneur #creativemamas #creativeminds #support #compassion #purpose #passionandpurpose#medicinalherbs #myblackisbeautiful #tinctures #naturalcures #healthiswealth #my daughters #blackgirlmagic
Two things about this quote pop out at me:⁣ ⁣ 💗 Totally go for it ⁣ 💗 Take some risks⁣ ⁣ Sounds easy right, but it’s hard to take that step.  Why?  At some level we’re scared (even if we don’t believe it we are). We are deeply programmed for security and going against the grain can be incredibly uncomfortable.  George Adair said, “everything you want is on the other side of fear”. ⁣ ⁣ Another Jen Sincero quote I love is, “If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way.  If you’re not you’ll find an excuse.” 🎤 ⁣ ⁣ I want to hear from YOU - what’s the #1 thing you would do if nothing held you back? ⁣ 🌎 Travel the world?⁣ 💻Start a business? ⁣ 👶 Stay home with kids?⁣ 🎯 Go crazy at Target (no judgement)! @tylerjmccall that one is for you. 😉
What’s the biggest mindset shift you need to make in selling?  Press play and catch my answer.  Episode 97 is live and you should totally listen to the rest.  I was interviewed by @jbenhartley of the six-figure-photography-podcast and you’ll learn how to sell, necessary mindset changes, and my unlikely path to sales.  It’s good I Promise.  And if you do listen to the whole thing will you tell me?  I’d like to say thank you. ❤️ #creativemamas #marketingtips #creativedirection #creativepreneur #creativemind #supportart #supportthearts #workingwomen #createordie #madewell #mycreativelife #creatorslane #mycreativebiz #livecreatively #creativemornings #ibelieveintheartist  #create365 #creativeprocess #creativelive #calledtobecreative #herestothecreatives #calledtocreate #designisinthedetails #createtocultivate #sayyestosuccess #mycreativeempire #creativedesign #visualidentity #lifeofanartist

Behold my glorious first ball of t-shirt yarn! It only took half an hour to do 1 kids T-shirt and I only have a washing basket full of clothes to go. 🥳🤣 I’ve got a couple of projects planned for the yarn so watch this space.  In all seriousness, I’ve woken up to how much work we all need to be doing in our daily lives to save our world. Big changes start with small ones. So this year for me, is all about #the5rs : #refuse #reduce #reuse #repurpose  #recycle  We’ve all got our part to play. And I’d love to get more ideas.

This is the post I’ve been putting off because I fear being misunderstood or judged. But I have to share it in order to speak to you: The grieving, suffering, longing hearts.  Above all, know this: Your pain is valid.  Perhaps you’re having  a hard time believing that or you’re hearing a different message. I want to affirm you where you are. I want to come alongside you and simply be present in the suffering. I won’t push it away, I won’t diminish it’s meaning to you, I will just be here. In this, with you.  Please keep this in mind as you read about my own journey through a recent disappointment and the pain and grief that has followed since then. Continue reading on my blog, link in profile ✨

Kladdkaka med extra allt! 😋 Med lagom kladdig glutenfri browniebotten, ett lager marschmallows (ska ha mer av det nästa gång!), ett lager karamelliserad mjölk och till sist en mörk chokladganache 😋🙌 Idé från Pinterest med lite ändringar för att passa mig. Baka botten, grädda halva tiden, ta ut och släng på marschmallows i bitar och grädda sen färdigt. Låt svalna lite och bre på karamelliserad mjölk. Gör en ganache på choklad och grädde (bra recept finns överallt på nätet) och bred den överst. Låt kallna och njut med vispad grädde eller kanske vaniljglass 😋 - 🇺🇸 Delicious cake with brownie, marschmallows, caramelized milk and chocolate ganache on top 😋 - #hembakat #baka #bake #baking #homebaked #bakeglede #creativemamas #craftymom #tips #fika #glutenfritt #glutenfriagodsaker #bakaglutenfritt #swedishfika #glutenfree #glutenfreebaking #kladdkaka #mudcake #brownie

I read this quote the other day by Tenneva Jordan, “A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people promptly announces she never did care for pie.” If that doesn’t describe our role as mama..I don’t know what does. 🖤

I ALSO have heart and star shapes. I have about 50 right now and I will keep them until they sell out, after that I won’t offer them again until September. These ornaments are paper mache with black ink, no color.

Most of us know about the gender pay gap. If you don't then have a look at my other posts for #feministeconomicsfriday but not only do women earn less than men overall but this is exacerbated by race. For the most part women of colour earn less than white women and white men. The biggest gap is Pakistani and Bangladeshi women earn 26.2% less than white British men.  The cartoon is titled "gender pay by ethnicity in Britain" and shows women of colour surrounded by facts: 1) Indian women earn 16.1% less than Indian men 2) Chinese women earn 5% more than white men but 4% less than Chinese men 3) Black Caribbean women earn 8.8% more than Black Caribbean men . . . . . #paygap #closethegap #feministeconomics #genderpaygap #creativemums #creativemamas #veryalmost #parentinglife #instaillustration #arttherapy #artisticmama #mumsofinstagram #feminist #feminism #womensrights #equalrights #trustwomen #feministasfuck #feministmother #feministmothering #smashthepatriarchy #feministfriday #fridaygenderslay
This notebook is my constant companion. It’s filled with scribbled ideas about my book. Questions to myself, things I have to research, suggested outlines, quotes, fragments of dialogue and absurd plot suggestions. Now that I’ve given myself full permission to be a writer, (in fact, I’m already calling myself one...still a bit sheepishly..) it is now an absolute pleasure and no longer an agony for me.  Even when what I’m writing isn’t working! Which is most of the time, I’m new at this! And hyper self critical and fumbling to find my voice and my style.. but even then, just because I’ve given myself permission to figure it out, it is bliss. And when I’m grappling with the puzzle pieces, I’m in my happy place, just so excited to see where this leads. I’m just taking my time. 5-6:30am is mine. And I’m in no hurry. I hope you’re giving yourself permission today for something that makes your heart sing. For no other reason than your own happiness. 🍵 By the way, that delicious looking GREEN beverage..??? 😅 It’s my coffee substitute (because coffee makes me more crazy anxious and that, NOBODY needs!) If you’re looking for a healthy hot drink to replace your cup of joe (even though this does still have caffeine!), I’d recommend giving this a go! I LOVE it! INGREDIENTS:  1tsp green matcha powder 1/2tsp coconut oil 1tsp maple syrup 1 tsp cinnamon  1tsp protein powder 1/2 tsp vanilla essence  Then I make it with half almond milk, half water and whisk it on the stove with a matcha whisk! 😋😋😋 #beherenow #lifeistooshort #followyourheart #coffeemakesmecraycray
So insta folks, today marks a special day. • • • Like anything associated with our little enchanting Elissa, today is another day to celebrate her being in our lives and changing it massively. She is a whopping 8 months old! Not long until she’s 1, not long until she meets her little baby brother 💖. • • • • Can’t keep up with how quickly she’s growing! We have to shop every few weeks now (I’m not complaining). • • • #canyouspottheparrot #enchantingelissa #followingelissa • • • #babylife #baby #momsofinstagram #momsofig #babiesofig #momswithcameras #everydaymoments#creativemamas #littlestoriesofmylife #magicalmoments #whimsical #motherhood #justmomlife #magicofmotherhood #simplymamahood #candidchildhood #whpmagical #momentsinmotherhood #momentslikethese #ig_motherhood #secondofwhimsy #candidslumber #motherhoodthroughinstagram #our_everyday_moments #pixel_kids
🎧 I’M TOTALLY FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW, I JUST RELEASED MY PODCAST! 🎧  Pinch me! iTunes just listed my podcast, The Happy Creative and now I’m freaking out. It’s like diving into the unknown.  I love podcasts and I just knew I had to honour the 16 year old me who dreamed of being a radio presenter….It’s taken me right out of my comfort zone. But I love a challenge, I’m telling myself it’s progress over perfection and I’ve got a lot to say on all things creative business so 🤷🏼‍♀️. I also know that every time I feel vulnerable and make a leap my heart opens just a little bit more.  So, today I’ve released my first three episodes talking about joy, storytelling for creative business owners on a budget and how to create better, faster and more purposeful content.  The podcast is called The Happy Creative and you can click the link in my bio or go to iTunes to find it. I’m putting the audio clips up over on my stories too!  If you enjoy them, I’d be so grateful if you could rate, review or subscribe on your podcast app/i tunes cos it really helps unknown shows get ranked higher by iTunes.  Did you take yourself away from your safety net recently?  #thehappycreative
On the eve of my 40th! Howling wolf women 🐺 as I step into and celebrate another threshold 🌿🙏🌹 Yes! Xxx
Finally finished... despite being majorly distracted by this little tiger.. Check out my newest illustration piece on my design account @_gabriellaamelia_ 🌴🌺
Little girl in her sleeping bag 🌴🌺 Inspired by my little bean Malindi (swipe left) It’s taken me a lot longer to put pen to paper since having a baby... but at the same time my head is just fuelled with new idea’s.. funny how your life changes when you have little rugrats that take up so much of your time.. ✨
I can’t believe it’s already been a week into the holidays.. I don’t even remember when this photo was taken over the last few days, I just know that New Years is around the corner and it’s exciting to think about what 2019 could bring! • • • #babylife #baby #momsofinstagram #momsofig #babiesofig #momswithcameras #everydaymoments#creativemamas #littlestoriesofmylife #magicalmoments #whimsical #motherhood #justmomlife #magicofmotherhood #simplymamahood #candidchildhood #whpmagical #momentsinmotherhood #momentslikethese #ig_motherhood #secondofwhimsy #candidslumber #motherhoodthroughinstagram #our_everyday_moments #pixel_kids
