Hey there!! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve introduced myself. So if you’ve been here for a bit you already know I’ve spent the last 8 years as a paper florist, I’ve made custom flowers from origami to realistic botanical replicas and love to mix crepe paper and text weight paper. 🌷 With this years recent change to homeschooling our 13 year old son I’ve also decided to put making customs aside and focus on teaching paper flowers to other aspiring makers. 🤓 Ok enough about what I do for a living, I’ve always been a tomboy of sorts, with a dress or two thrown in once a year for good measure. My closest thing to fancy sweaters is a brand new hoodie, I practically live in them. Leggings, yup preettttty much everyday. Wearing ones with octopus on them as we speak! Oh yeah, 🐙 is my favorite sea critter and 🐴 are my favorite land mammal. I don’t wear makeup unless it’s the occasional touch of mascara and tinted chapstick. Jewelry is not a thing I indulge in, unless you count the hair tie I wear as a bracelet. 😏 I am obsessed with mushrooms and get so giddy when people slip into my messages with a photo of some they’ve found out in the world. Natures my homegirl and I pull a lot of inspiration from the time I spend out romping around with my husband Matt, son Joni and our lab/pit/Shepard mix Harley aka tootsmagoo aka doodle. I’d love to get to know you more and really feel that this place helps with the loneliness we may face as artists so what’s one thing about you that you can drop in the comments? If you see someone’s comment and can relate, give em a thumbs up and check out their feed. Let’s See if we can make some new friends! . . #ihavethisthingforflowers#crepepaperrevival#bloooms#seedscolor#botanicalpickmeup#paperflorist#ambplantlady#bhgflowers#dsfloral#foolthebees#paperflowers#paperart#imsomartha#papernotpicked#paper#crepepaperrevival#botanicalart#underthefloralspell#crepe#crepepaperflowers
|| full moon in Virgo 🌕♍️ || ✨🌕✨ Virgo is a sign for details. having concrete evidence makes them feel secure. and in this is a phase of potential miscommunication (Virgo’s ruler, Mercury, is currently conjunct Neptune, which tends to muddle clarity of messages), it is important that we stay wise to logic and cautiously check facts. ✨🌕✨ however, this is not a time to get ourselves lost in all the details. it is a better time than ever to trust in what the Universe is presenting us. every interaction is a compass, pointing us is the way we are supposed to go. when we cannot see clearly, we must rely on other senses to find our way. trust in your intuition. and if not having a clear grasp on what life is presenting you right now, freaks you out, try to make the uncertainty work for you. y o u are the creator of your reality. turn anxiety and worry into wonder and possibility. ✨🌕✨ instead of focusing on what you cannot control, release that notion and use this time as one for inspiration and creation. there is a world of possibilities behind the doors of your own perception... find the key to unlock those doors and experience the world the way you deserve. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Oils to help release and find inspiration: ✨Release ✨SARA ✨Eucalyptus ✨Acceptance ✨Believe ✨Humility ✨Palo Santo ✨Sacred Frankincense ✨Inspiration ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #fullmooninvirgo#fullmoonritual#unlockthedoors#theuniversespeaks

Love Yourself. Simple words.. yet something I’ve struggled with for many, many years. It always seemed like I was too much, or too loud, or way too inappropriate, way too direct, way too selfish, way too bossy, not enough, not popular, not likeable.. In a world where everyone seems to have an opinion of who I am and who I should be, I choose to let all that go and just be ME. And you, my friend, should too! Start accepting yourself..even with all your flaws, imperfections, and (in my current situation) extra pounds. Start making yourself a priority..even when others say you’re selfish. Do the things that fill your soul with happiness and passion. Start Loving Yourself! Truly loving yourself. Even if it feels hard or weird. And .. trust me..The Universe has your back. There’s literally signs everywhere in case you need a gentle reminder. Yep.. even spray painted on a wall!
I believe @caroline.myss was who spoke these words of trusting that the Creator hung the Stars above you in perfect order. It 🌟 struck me. —✨— I’m learning to Trust. Astrology has given me the language to understand the journey of my soul. It’s been very illuminating to learn about my own design and my loved ones. We are not born in simply as #reflections of our parents, we come into being purposefully created with a #soulblueprint written in the Stars. —✨— There are many ways to uncover your designs. Prayer and communion with the Creator is a good place to start, and #astrology is like reading the owners manual to your #purpose. —✨— Self awareness begets love and compassion. Love of your own divine design and compassion for your journey. Which you can then reflect back to others. —✨— 👉Discover yourself. See link in bio for the most used website that offers free birth charts and then start by looking at your moon sign and rising sign👈 —✨— When asked, ‘what’s your sign?’ it refers to your ☀️ #sunsign. If you stop there it’s only skimming the surface of who you are. The sun sign represents what energizes you. It’s your #character. The way you light up. —✨— Your 😇 #risingsign represents your #souljourney, it’s what you are aspiring towards. It’s your #personality. And you likely resonate with more of the qualities found here. —✨— The 🌙 #moonsign represents your #behavior. This is most how you feel about yourself and it’s how others see you. Because the moon rules and reflects our emotions and our behaviors are how we present our self to the world. 🌈 #themoreyouknow#themoreyoutrust —🌟📣🤩 —@starspeakerwoman #starspeakerwoman#theuniversespeaks#mitakuyeoyasin#theholybreathofthegreatspirit#starpowers#sacredspace#goodmedicine#ancientwisdom#asabovesobelow#stargazer#cosmiclove#divineguidance#trusttheuniverse#awakenyoursoul#synchronicity#starmap#writteninthestars
For the women who don’t give a fuck! It’s not the day you have to manage, but the moment. It’s not the dragon you have to slay, but the fear. It’s not the path you have to know, not even the destination, but the trust. Love every moment, even the painful. Nothing can make you less. . . . #livelove#yogaoffthemat#womenwhodontgiveafuck#theuniversespeaks
I do photography! I love capturing the essence of a person through a shot and then adding my own artistic expression into it to draw even more out from the photo. This is my friend Jake from @lungsoflove ! This photo session was a lot of fun! Looking forward to expanding my creative wings more and more.
"There she is. . . the “too much” woman. The one who loves too hard, feels too deeply, asks too often, desires too much. There she is taking up too much space, with her laughter, her curves, her honesty, her sexuality. Her presence is as tall as a tree, as wide as a mountain. Her energy occupies every crevice of the room. Too much space she takes. There she is causing a ruckus with her persistent wanting, too much wanting. She desires a lot, wants everything—too much happiness, too much alone time, too much pleasure. She’ll go through brimstone, murky river, and hellfire to get it. She’ll risk all to quell the longings of her heart and body. This makes her dangerous. She is dangerous. And there she goes, that “too much” woman, making people think too much, feel too much, swoon too much. She with her authentic prose and a self-assuredness in the way she carries herself. She with her belly laughs and her insatiable appetite and her proneness to fiery passion. All eyes on her, thinking she’s hot shit. Oh, that “too much” woman. . . too loud, too vibrant, too honest, too emotional, too smart, too intense, too pretty, too difficult, too sensitive, too wild, too intimidating, too successful, too fat, too strong, too political, too joyous, too needy—too much. She should simmer down a bit, be taken down a couple notches. Someone should put her back in a more respectable place. Someone should tell her. Here I am. . . the Too Much Woman, with my too-tender heart and my too-much emotions. A hedonist, feminist, pleasure seeker, empath. I want a lot—justice, sincerity, spaciousness, ease, intimacy, actualization, respect, to be seen, to be understood, your undivided attention, and all of your promises to be kept. I’ve been called high maintenance because I want what I want, and intimidating because of the space I occupy. I’ve been called selfish because I am self-loving. I’ve been called a witch because I know how to heal myself. And
As hard as today was to get through without you there, I'm surprised I turned out to be OK in the end. Got my strength to a higher level than ever before. I'm doing freaking awesome without you here. I'm so much happier. I don't need to be trapped in a toxic relationship, even either of you guys reading this. Don't stay stuck in a toxic relationship. You have control of you. Nobody has control over you. You have a voice. Use you voice. Speak out. Speak loud. And walk away. You will both be happier apart, in the end. All it takes is a bit of time with opened eyes. The way things went unbelievably amazing for me since I left him, had to of been a sign from the universe telling me, do not go back like all the other 1000 times you have. The universe gave me amazing great karma, for the person I know I am. I'm so blessed and grateful things went absolutely amazing,and everything was such a smooth transition to such a positive life, since I left him. Find your strength within yourself. Carry that same strength through the rest of your life. Keep that strength, cause in the end you are all you got. Don't give that strength away to anyone. We got this.💖 Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone. // #thankunext#happier#single#gay#twospirit#men#gayman#virgo#happy#theuniverse#theuniversespeaks#lovemylife#vancouver#canada#toxic#toxicrelationships#relationship#relationshit#overit#wearedone#movingon#timetogo#byeee 💯

I was at home relaxing, pondering life as it is..was..and will be. Trying to...encourage myself, calm my thoughts...when my sweet sweet brother called me...and without a word on my end, started to lift me up...encourage...all the positive vibes, reality of things, tender love and excitement to watch me flow through this weird place in my life where I have my back against the wall, no choice but to grow and be a better version of myself. Luke...my brother and love, words cannot Express how fucking lucky and grateful I am for you, and our family. We are TRULY connected. I CANNOT wait to squeeze you, play you in horseshoes and loose horribly. #theuniversespeaks#guided#earthlyangels#connectedness#oneness#yourtruehome
